We're now face-to-face with the volatile climate, intense heat waves, and large-scale storms scientists predicted decades ago. Now what?
To survive on Mars, we need a ‘technology that replaces what the Earth does.’ This tube might be NASA’s best hope.
NASA wants to visit Mars, and Elon Musk and SpaceX want to colonize it, but traditional life support systems will quickly run out of food, water, air, and other supplies. Plants and bacteria can recycle astronaut waste while growing them food to eat, an approach called bioregenerative life support.
Mars colonists will get blasted with radiation levels 8 times higher than government limits — here’s what they’re up against
High-energy space radiation will threaten the Mars colonies that Elon Musk hopes to establish with SpaceX, as well as astronaut outposts planned by NASA.
Half of the Great Barrier Reef has died since 2016 — here’s what happens if all coral reefs on Earth die off
Without coral reefs, there could be a rippling ecosystem collapse in the oceans, with devastating effects on the planet.
A former NASA scientist says ‘The Martian’ movie ‘is completely doable.’ But Elon Musk’s city on Mars is another story.
The scenario in "The Martian" sci-fi book and movie "is completely doable," according to a former NASA scientist. But building a self-sustaining city on the red planet, as Elon Musk wants to do, is a far greater challenge than a stay of a year or two.
