Interstellar migration is no longer a dream, the "Age of the Big Universe" is coming soon

The vast universe is so vast that the small earth is just a drop in the ocean; mankind has always had a desire to explore the stars.

In ancient times, people did not know enough about the stars to create "stargazing", although they could see and name the stars of the universe in a way we did not know for a while, which was eventually linked to mythology.

Later, with the advent of science, we were able to learn that the so-called four directions of the stars were not enough for the ancients to explore the stars, and that is why the "four directions of the stars" such as "Green Dragon, White Tiger, Vermilion Bird and Xuanwu" were created.

In the so-called "four-star field", but some of the stars closer to the Earth, and the moon, there is no mythical Change. There is no laurel tree; there are only puddles of moon rock and other materials.

When mankind went to the moon, after our illusions about the moon were shattered, a new "fantasy" came: whether we can migrate to the moon or other planets.

From the current scientific and technological exploration of the universe, we know that the Earth is the only living planet among the known stars, and it cannot be reproduced.

This scientific result makes us have more interest in the stars and aliens, and want to unveil the mystery of the universe, to see whether there are aliens, or whether we, humans on Earth, can become "aliens".

We started to explore the universe based based on life on Earth; especially after Stephen Hawking's death, when he left the words: "Mankind will complete the migration of planets by 2035".

Scientists have been analyzing and exploring the scientific proposition of "interstellar migration".

According to the results of the exploration of the universe up to now, with the existing science and technology of the Earth, if we want to complete the interplanetary migration, it can only be done within the solar system; further away, it cannot be flown, or by the time it arrives, the traveler will have already died of old age.

With the current human understanding of the universe, the most likely place to give birth to live among the planets we know is Io, the moon of Jupiter, the "Defender of the Earth".

It is said that the current state of Io, similar to the "ice age" in the history of the Earth, is completely composed of ice combinations!

But ...... according to scientists' exploration, Io's underground glacier is predicted to have a "liquid ocean" 10 times deeper than the Earth's oceans at its lowest level.

At the same time, Io has a thin atmosphere and oxygen, which can provide the basic "life characteristics".

So, according to astronomy enthusiasts, there is a high probability that Io has life in it.

So far, Io is also the most habitable planet among those discovered, although it is only a moon.

But unfortunately, because Io is a satellite, its orbit is not on the same vertical line as the Earth's sun, so the distance between the Earth and Io is difficult to estimate, and Jupiter, as the "Earth's defender "So Io is not a good place to migrate to, except for the ecological system, which is suitable for Earthlings.

In addition to "Io", there is another planet that is closer to Earth and has water: Mars!

Mars is more suitable for human habitation than the distant and unpredictable orbit of Io, so currently, the most popular planet in the universe for "cosmic migration enthusiasts" to study is Mars.

According to the exploration of Mars, many astronomy enthusiasts and even scientists agree that it is very likely that a civilization existed on Mars a long time ago, but later, due to changes in the planet's environment, it was no longer suitable for living organisms; according to American scientific research, Mars had an ocean for a short time.

Evolutionary speculation suggests that with oceans, there is a high probability that marine life was born.

In addition, scientists have repeatedly explored Mars and confirmed the discovery that the planet has a water source.

Originally, the geography of Mars is highly similar to the environment of the Earth, with mountains, plains, basins, and other environments, but also has a very thin atmosphere and a trace of oxygen (0.15 percent of the atmosphere of Mars).

All of these factors prove that Mars, a planet only about 55 million kilometers from Earth, is extremely suitable as a choice for human migration.

The only problem is that the atmosphere and oxygen on Mars are too scarce to support human survival.

The only problem is that the atmosphere and oxygen on Mars are too scarce to support human survival; however, it is important to know that the Earth began as a "fireball" similar to Mars, and evolved to form the complete biological chain that it has today.

Mars today, but still in the process of evolution.

It is worth mentioning that the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, has solved the mystery of oxygen

Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics has published a paper in Nature Communications, which shows that the formation of oxygen is inseparably related to water and that oxygen is most likely derived from the photolysis of water molecules.

The research institute experimentally concluded that water molecules can undergo triple disintegration under extreme ultraviolet wavelength light, eventually forming oxygen atoms, and only two oxygen atoms are needed to form oxygen molecules.

This research not only provides new ideas for the origin of oxygen in the early atmosphere of planets but also helps "interstellar migration".

With enough water molecules, it is possible to photolyze oxygen atoms to form oxygen.

The most important needs of human cosmic migration are three: water, oxygen, and atmosphere.

And as long as there is a water source, it is possible to disassemble water molecules to form oxygen, and with enough oxygen, it is possible to increase the thickness of the atmosphere, thus creating an environment in which plants can live.

With a plant environment, it will be possible to create a "planet" suitable for human settlement.

At present, scientists have determined that Mars has water, as long as we can create enough oxygen, then Mars into a second Earth, is not a pipe dream, interstellar migration is not a dream!

At present, the Earth has been able to send about 30 Mars probes to Mars, and sooner or later in the future, humans can conquer Mars, just like they conquered the Moon so that Mars has human footprints on it.

As long as the goal of human landing on Mars is accomplished, plus the current Chinese scientists have cracked the mystery of planetary oxygen, then we are very likely to complete the interstellar migration in our lifetime, to witness the great "age of the universe", so that the universe is full of human footprints.
