| Is it a good idea to send people to Mars?|
|Question Date: 2015-10-07|
Thanks for all of your great Mars questions!
Although I’m not an expert on Mars or on any of
the space missions, I’ll do my best to answer your
questions. You asked if it’s a good idea to send
people to Mars. There are a few ways to answer
this question. For the purposes of scientific
advancement, it is a good idea to send people to
Mars. By sending people to Mars, we will learn
about the evolution of our solar system and about
our own planet’s history and future. Humans on
Mars will be able to look for evidence of life on
the planet, which will help to answer one of
the biggest questions
we ask: Does life exist beyond Earth?
Although exploring Mars is a good idea for
helping us understand our solar system, it will
be dangerous to send people to Mars. There are
a lot of things we don’t know about keeping people
healthy in deep space, and scientists are working
hard to make the trip as safe as possible but
there is always a chance that something unexpected
could happen. But scientists seem to agree that
it’s worth the risk because we can learn so much
from the mission. Also, sending people to Mars is
the first step to exploring other, more distant
That depends on what you want the people to do,
and how much money you are willing to invest into
getting them there and keeping them healthy. With
enough money for good space ships, rockets, etc.,
humans could travel to Mars to do scientific
research, and come home to Earth. I have a
hard time thinking of any other good reasons to
send people to Mars for the foreseeable future,
and getting to Mars would be very expensive.
Sending people to mars would sure be exciting
-- they would be the pioneers of a new planet!
Imagine being the first group of people to live on
mars. However, we're still a long way from
making sure it will be safe. We still don't
have all the solutions to the challenges of living
there, and even the best plans can have errors. We
could have the best plan but there will be some
new problems that we won't know about until we get
There are many scientists and engineers working on
this project and the more data they get from mars
missions, the better they will be at planning
human civilization there.
Is it a good idea? It would be exciting,
but we will still have to collect more information
before we will be able to do it safely.
I don't think it's a good idea to send
people to Mars. It would cost so much money,
and I think there are so many other more important
things to spend money on. But I think it would be
exciting to see people on Mars. It was exciting
to see Mars in 1976, when the first space ship
landed on Mars, and it was fun to see the people
walking on the moon. So if some people were rich
enough to pay for sending people to Mars, I would
be excited to watch the people on Mars.
