Mars is the topic of the decade as researchers have grown ever so closer to discovering a question about as old as oxygen on planet earth.
New research points to the startling idea that there appears to be life in space; probably on Mars, and at least in atmospheres floating above certain planets that went undetected as far as we know for probably ever (until now.)
Truthfully I think I believe more in life in space than I do particularly in that of aliens. The life in space probably is either of some type of specimen or looks close to if not identical to you or I.
If it isn’t there already that’s probably because we are the life forms meant to eventually inhabit Mars and likely will. An idea that has been proposed many times before probably most famously in the critically acclaimed novel by Kim Stanley Robinson aptly called Red Mars.
That came out in 1992. It was as some might argue what was likely the Fandango trailer for the life we may eventually live or the life that those after us may live. It isn’t quite understood yet if we, the current set of humans, will survive to inevitably find out if we are truly alone or is earth one big cluster of a reality we’ve been duped to think of as real; superior, and above all else.
The idea surrounding life on Mars or even nearby has been the talk of the town since the pandemic began. Governments are confirming reported signs of UFOs; weird fungi allegedly was found in the area, volcanic activity was detected within Mars (leading many to believe it was recently habitable or in some form may still be) and of course then there’s the fact that we are technically already there.
With the rise of NASA’s Projects in space including the rovers on Mars and the eventual rovers that are set to launch by decades end — we now have some important questions we must ask ourselves before any form of life is confirmed to exist on a planet that is outside of earth.
If the reports coming out about Mars are in any way or in any way become confirmed — we must ourselves are we prepared for what is poised to be the inevitable contact with a world we know absolutely nothing about. A world that we currently only able to view from a reality that is not ours but that of a piece of technology that is millions of space miles away.
That in itself is a fascinating feat. A machine has carried (in essence) mankind to a different world (though we will probably be there ourselves) that we have never been to before.
Think about that. A machine is currently funneling photographs back to earth so we can view them as they come in. How long before this rover finds something? Have people really thought about that? Are people really prepared for the potential profound consequences for we here on earth?
It was only recent that I became interested in space and Mars after somebody I admire dearly made a good point. That t we are probably selfish beyond comparison to think that we are alone in a universe where we aren’t even sure how we got here.
