Hawking said that people should as soon as possible to colonize other planets, because in the foreseeable future existence on Earth would be impossible for a number of reasons.
Not so long ago myself, Stephen Hawking said that if humanity wants to survive, then the only way to do this is to leave the Earth.
(Stephen Hawking recommended humanity to leave Earth)
Perhaps he is right — it is not enough that the man slowly destroys everything that nature has created previously, and there is a threat quickly destroy themselves in the form of a fusion nuclear and conventional weapons. In General, the probability of human extinction from the face of the Earth is quite large, and some scientists are already beginning to ponder what can be done to ensure the survival of civilization.
Species Homo sapiens has already passed the point of no return and the planet will turn into a ball of dust, said the world’s biggest scientist of Australia, Professor Frank Fenner
Watch rock hit mankind?
Yes, says a prominent 95-year-old scientist from Australia. Professor Frank Fenner (Frank Fenner) — the same scientist who in the 1950’s decided to use the myxomatosis virus to fight with wild rabbits that have become major pests of crops and pastures. Scientist acutely aware of the consequences of overpopulation of the Earth and lack of resources.
(Humanity will be extinct within 100 years?)
After the hype surrounding the myth of 2012, we have already perceived bad «another» warning about the Day of judgment. But when a scientist of the calibre of Frank Fenner warns that humanity will go extinct agree, it’s hard to miss it by ear.
«Homo sapiens will become extinct, maybe in 100 years, — says classic science. — Many other animals too. This is an irreversible situation. I think it’s all too late. Of course, I try not to Express his opinion that people tried to do anything, but they continue to postpone addressing fundamental questions».
A group of scientists have created a \»store of the day of judgment\», which contains the germs and seeds of plants and animals that can be quickly developed to a normal, adult after a disaster
To \»Fix\» The Earth
In the event of any disaster, whether it be nuclear war, an asteroid or something, a good way to survive is the ability to recover quickly. A group of scientists have created a \»store of the day of judgment\», which contains the germs and seeds of plants and animals that can be quickly developed to a normal adult state after a disaster. The store is located in Norway, and there are already collected more than 250 million seeds, and the total storage capacity allows you to store more than 2 billion seeds. Store placed in the mountain, near the North Pole, approximately 170 metres above sea level and far from tectonic perturbations. If something happens, this store is our first hope for the restoration of all that had been earlier.
Genetic manipulation can be a good way to survive, unless, of course, to drop the risk that something will go wrong. In fact, scientists have already created many organisms that did not exist before, and all these naklejki \»Without GMO\» means nothing, the genes of most organisms already include the new \»links\»to move from one type of organism to another very quickly.
In General, if you learn how to \»correctly\», so to speak, to manipulate genetic information, it is possible to create these types of organisms that can survive in the most demanding environments, while providing humanity with sufficient amount of food and all nutrients.
Life under the Ground
Life under the Ground
In principle, a good way of survival is also living under the earth — even in the thirties of the last century this idea was very popular. Of course, all the while living under the earth, man would only occur if the surface will be a disaster — whether nuclear, or viral infection, or something else.
Colonization of the ocean
Colonization of the ocean
In principle, also a great solution — ocean busy 3/5 earth’s surface, so to live in the ocean means to be literally free. However, this will not take place soon, but if you need a large amount of resources from the ocean, including food and other resources, have to move.
Colonization of the terrestrial environment is also very interesting scenario of development of our civilization. The station can be represented in the form of a huge rotating disk, where the rotation will ensure the presence of gravity. In this Hulk is quite possible to simulate natural ecosystems, and almost nobody will notice the difference. Another question is, will humanity’s resources for creating such a station (or several).
Europa, Titan, Ganymede, Moon and other satellites of the planets of the Solar system — here is another acceptable scenario for colonization. Many useful resources are already found on the moon, so there is hope that all this can be found on other satellites. Of course, prior to the implementation of such programs will be a long time, but many scientists hope that we will create at least a station on the moon in the near future (though NASA has only recently announced the phasing out its lunar program).
Colonization of planets
Colonization of planets
Well, here is repeated the same scenario as in the previous paragraph. The team is flying to Mars\», though in the stage model. Maybe another 10-20 years, and the first one will be on Mars. There he will see? In principle, Spirit and opportunity have already showed us what it looks like this planet. Other planets are on line.
It is purely a fantastic term that refers to the other planets so that people will be able to live there. For the current stage of human development, this is still a pipe dream, but NTR is ongoing, and progress is moving forward by leaps and bounds. Will see what happens next.
To sisters of the Earth just 20 light-years. Someday, perhaps, flew
In the constellation of Libra, discovered the planet that might have life
Video: Land No. 2 — planet 581G
Astronomers from the University of California, working at the Observatory in Hawaii, announced that it has opened two new planets from star Gliz 581. It is in the constellation of Libra, and about 20 light years from us.
One of the planets, which received the designation 581 g, is located in the so-called habitat. That is removed from its sun at such a distance that it is not very hot and not very cold. And this g-planet may be liquid water. As we have.
— Planet potentially habitable, — declared one of the authors of the opening, Professor of astronomy and astrophysics Stephen Vogt. Even though it was not to say that it can dwell brothers in mind. But did not reject completely this perspective.
Sister of the Earth is about 3 times its harder. And 10 times Toropova — year it takes 37 earth days. The planet has an atmosphere. Most likely it is similar to earth.
By the WAY:
Clarification is expected in 4 years
According to Moore’s law for astronomy as early as 2020, the probability to find a habitable planet will increase from 50 percent to 75. To 2264 year extraterrestrial life will be necessary. Well, almost. The probability of this event scientists estimate of 95 percent.
And to check how still inhabitable the Gliz 581, it will be possible in 2014, when it will go into orbit a new space telescope James Webb\» (James Webb Space Telescope, JWST). Astronomers believe that they will be able to look about 20 — 30 light years. That is where you need. And not only discover this gave the planet the size of our Earth, but also to find there and the water, and vegetation. Such a perspective has recently stated astronomer Tyler Robinson from the University of Washington in Seattle.
The presence of extensive ocean will produce Sunny Bunny — that is, the reflection on the mirror surface of the water. This Ohr Hozer local stars and catch a new telescope.
Typical Bunny, by the way, in his time was given to understand that on Titan — the largest moon of Saturn — there is a liquid ocean. He, however, turned out to be methane, but there was the same.
To distinguish water from other liquids will allow spectral analysis. Will complete his studies in the infrared range, which can be detected on a distant planet the presence of chlorophyll — the pigment that colors the leaves, grass and other vegetation in green color. He — chlorophyll — very well visible on the infrared images. Looks bright flashes.
With the Gliz 581 g received signal
The astronomer says that two years ago, spotted a strange pulse of light in the constellation of Libra — where there was found a planet suitable for human life.
The gliz 581 — the brightest star in the constellation of Libra. It is from its surrounding us someone Miguel laser beam
The sensation that planet, dubbed the Gliz 581 g, is located right in the middle of the so-called habitats. As our Earth. In 2007, astronomers have already found a planet in the Gliz — «c» and «d», which were located on the edges of habitats. As our Venus and Mars. And not strongly denied that they may be life in one form or another. Because planets may contain water in liquid form. But on the newly discovered planet \» g \» conditions — the best of all. And if brothers in mind, there are, at this very «g» they have to be.
We have, however, complained, saying that it is strange that from glisan no news. After all, if they are at least equal to the level of development, the time would have to hint of its existence. Because our radio and television signals, which propagate through the Universe for more than 60 years, has long reached the system Gliz. Just 20 years it was necessary. It — there. Another 20 years — back. Total, we could have something to gain from them 20 years ago.
But it seems not received anything?
There is a contact!
Dr. Batal receives a signal from the Gliz 581 g: gives the impression of an honest man, looks like a serious scholar. If he actually got something from it?
And that’s literally the next day, the British newspaper reported Ragbir Batal (Dr Ragbir Bhathal), an astronomer from the University of Western Sydney University of Western Sydney), who works for the SETI program — the search for extra terrestrial civilizations.
If you believe the doctor, back in December 2008, he received a strange light from the area of the Gliz 581. That is, this happened before there was found a planet suitable for life — 581 g. And was only known about «c» and «d» — conditionally suitable.
— The tone was sharp, — Batal says, — like laser flash. And the connection by means of a powerful laser is quite possible. We are looking for such signals.
Unfortunately, for the first signal, the second followed. But experts SETI while going closer look at what is already received. Assure that possess particular method of analysis.
The planet is Gliz 581 g is about 3 times heavier than Earth. The diameter of it in the 1.2-1.4 times more. Average temperature — at the equator, about 20 degrees Celsius. At the poles — frosty, as on Earth.
As stated today emboldened the discoverer of the Gliz 581 g Professor of astronomy and astrophysics Stephen Vogt (Dr Steven Vogt), «a hundred percent sure that there is life».
