Tianwen -1: China wants To Take Mars Too!



Despite the fact that the Chinese were the first to tinker with rockets a thousand years ago, although for purposes certainly not peaceful, in the most recent space race China has decided to get involved only in 1970.
A majestic crescendo, which is being followed by the current attempt to drop a rover on Mars as well.
Will it succeed?
In fact, the mission, whose launch took place in the early hours of July 23 from the Wenchang space center, is particularly ambitious. If all goes well, in fact, for the first time in the history of Martian exploration a single spacecraft will bring to the Red Planet an orbiter, a lander and a rover, with a scientific load of 13 instruments: seven mounted on board the spacecraft that will enter in orbit around the planet, and six on board the rover that will be released shortly after the landing module will rest on Martian soil.

The “Questions to the Sky” (Tian-wen in Chinese) is the name of a text attributed to the poet Qu Yuan, who lived between the fourth and third centuries BC, a work that takes the form of a series of questions in verse with which the author questions some fundamental philosophical and scientific issues. Evidently now China hopes to find the answer to some of these questions, considering that the space probe currently traveling to Mars has decided to give the name Tianwen-1. A name that according to the Chinese Space Agency will be given to all of China’s planetary exploration missions, signifying the Chinese nation’s perseverance in pursuing truth and science and exploring nature and the universe.

Build A Radio Telescope On The Moon By 2040!



We can say that the future of radio astronomy can be defined as assured even in the absence of Arecibo. The feeling is that, rightly, mourning beyond measure the disappearance of Arecibo, radio astronomers want to force the hand to obtain in exchange something extraordinarily innovative: a radio telescope on the Moon!

After Arecibo collapsed, radio astronomers all over the world were debating what to do to fill the great void left by that loss. Should the instrument be rebuilt? If so, with what money?
To remake it “as it was and where it was” requires quite a bit, at least $400 million. And so, more than a few experts began to blow on the fire of “better to focus on extreme renovation”.
And, interestingly, NASA did not back down … Also because it was already some time that the American space agency had in the drawer a project already nice and ready, the Lunar Crater Radio Telescope, already funded in April 2020 to verify the feasibility under a selection called Innovative Advanced Concepts.
In short, it was already a while that NASA had put in the crosshairs this possibility, and the disaster of the Arecibo radio telescope has only accelerated this propensity to fund extreme technologies rather than the preservation of the status quo.
An audacious decision-making encouraged in part by the enormous technological advances in materials, robotics, and communications that have given rise to the sort of “space renaissance” we are currently experiencing.
The need for a new radio telescope and the advantages of building on the lunar surface also coincides with the desire of the United States and its international and commercial partners to return to the Moon as early as 2024. Joseph Silk, professor of astronomy at The Johns Hopkins University, noted in an article in the journal Nature that the return of humans to the Moon, this time to stay, presents a rare opportunity to advance the science of radio astronomy.

Multiverse Theory: Are We A Part Of Infinite Parallel Realities?



Is our Universe just one of many in an infinite, ever-expanding multiverse? What exactly is the multiverse? Is it just a speculation of us humans or could it be that our universe is a part of a multiverse? In this article we will discuss these questions.

——————————————————————————————-
We have used the theory of multiple universes in cosmology, physics, philosophy, astronomy, religion, science fiction, comic books and fantasy. But we will look at the scientific aspect of it. We will only focus on the evidences and facts and observations made by astronomers and then draw a conclusion on the topic. 
The three dimensional world which we witness in our daily lives may just be an illusion where there is no distinction between past, present and future. But how is it possible? How can we be so wrong about something so familiar? These questions bother almost all astronomers and physicist. It’s a groundbreaking possibility that opens up a whole different world for us. We will discuss an important Question. What if alternative Universes are being formed all the time? The Big Bang might not be a unique event. We might live In a duplicate parallel reality among the many other parallel realities.  Somewhere there’s a duplicate of you, me and everyone else. Are we in a Universe or a Multiverse? 
Uniqueness is an idea so usual that no one questions it. A recent picture of the cosmos is coming to light, where nothing is unique. This recent picture challenges the notion of Uniqueness, in which duplicates of things are unavoidable. There might be duplicates, not only of objects but of me, you and everyone else.  And if it’s right, where are they? Why haven’t we seen them? There was a time when the word Universe meant everything that existed, the notion of more than one universe seemed impossible. But if we go beyond our Milky Way and even beyond the distant galaxies and beyond the end of the observable Universe, we might find that our Universe is not alone. There might be other Universes, in-fact, there might be new universes being born all the time might have stars and even a planet that looks familiar. We may be live in an expanding sea of Multiverse! Some of these might not have the basic requirements for the formation of matter. Others might have planets, stars and Galaxies that look familiar to us but with a slight difference. And if there are many other Universes out there, some might be even identical to ours except for the slightest Details. For Example, in any other parallel reality, it might be possible I am the Prime Minister of India. And if the multiverse exists, we will have to encounter a lot of possibilities that might exist. There could be other places where duplicates of me would exist and would think, act and speak in the same way as I do, but with some slight differences. 
Is it science, is it religion, is it Philosophy? As a Physicist we should not and we don’t ask these questions. We follow the logic, and the logic leads there. There was a time when people thought Earth was at the centre of the Cosmos and everything else that exists revolved around us. Then scientists like Galileo and Copernicus showed us it’s the sun that’s at the centre of our solar system. And our solar system is just a little neighbourhood in our Gigantic Galaxy. And our galaxy, it’s among the billions of galaxies that make up our universe. These ideas sounded shocking and outrageous when they were first suggested, but now we don’t even think to question these ideas. The idea of different alternate universes or the multiverse might be the same.  It just requires a radical change in our perspective of the cosmos. 
So let’s talk about where did the idea of Multiverse came from? What are the evidences of its existence? Well, a lot of astonishing discoveries and theories have suggested we may be a part of the multiverse. The very first among them is the Big Bang, the theory of the origin of our universe. According to this theory, our Universe began 13.8 billion years ago in a very hot and dense, violen* explosio* of a very tiny primordial nugget. Over millions and millions of years the universe cooled down and it lead to the formation of Stars, galaxies and planets. The universe is still expanding because of that explosio*. But there’s one major piece of this theory that’s missing. The Big Bang tells nothing about what caused the explosio*, throwing everything outwards. What caused the BANG? So, what furled the violen* explosio*? What force could set everything moving outwards? 
In 1979, a young physicist Alan Guth laid the foundation of the idea of the multiverse.

Elon Musk's Neuralink: How Does It Work And What Can It Do?



Neuralink corporation is an american company that was established in July 2016 by Elon Musk and some other partners including Ben Rapoport, Dongjin Seo, Max Hodak, Paul Merolla,
Philip Sabes, Tim Gardner, Tim Hanson, and Vanessa Tolosa .
Curious to know more about how Neuralink works and what can it do? Keep Watching!

——————————————————————————————-
Two years upon its foundation, Neuralink had received approximately 158 million dollars of which 100 million dollars was from Elon Musk and the other 58 million dollars is from the other partners and research foundations. The number of employees of Neuralink became around 100 in August 2020, however,The company is a fast paced and growing organization that’s continually improving its technologies in the neuroscience field. The main objective of this video is to answer two questions regarding Neuralink business. The first question is, how does it work? And the second one is, what can it do?

Finding ways to stimulate the brain in paralysed humans in order to allow them to control computers; is the main aim of Neuralink where they are developing ultrafine threads that can be woven into the brains of patients to detect the neuro signals. According to Musk, the system has been tested on a monkey that was able to control a computer with its brain and now Neuralink has applied to US regulators to start trailing this device on humans because their plans in the present focus on patients with severe neurological conditions. So how does it really work?
Well, Neuralink has developed an extremely small device called the N1 chip that is a 4mm square chip and consists of a tiny probe containing more than 3,000 electrodes which are attached to flexible threads that can easily monitor the activity of up to 1,000 neurons. Each one of these threads is thinner than a human hair. This newly developed system has numerous advantages, one of which is that it would be able to target very specific areas of the brain without compromising the integrity of the other areas, which would make it surgically safer. Moreover and by using machine learning, the system would be able to analyse recordings and that would help work out what type of stimulation to give a patient. However, Neuralink did not reveal the mechanism by which the system translated brain activity or even the way the device stimulates brain cells. After all, it’s a new technology that will take a long time to fulfill its purpose, so it will not take over people’s brains all of the sudden. However, according to Neuralink, the system would ultimately allow for symbiosis via artificial intelligence; that is it would generate the required interaction between the brain and AI.
At first, the N1 chips will be implanted in the patients skulls via traditional neurosurgery, however, they aim at inserting the chips safely and virtually painlessly through very small incisions by a robot surgeon. Unfortunately, in order to monitor neurosignals, the N1 chip needs to be close to each nerve at a distance less than 60 microns and beyond that distance, the chip would not be able to detect individual impulses and will monitor noise due to the overlapping between signals coming from different nerves. Despite the fact that Neuralink did not reveal the way N1 chips work, it’s worth noting that Brain-Machine interfaces work within a typical procedure. These interfaces use electrodes in order to translate the neuronal information readings, known as action potentials, into commands that are capable of controlling external systems such as a computer or even a robotic arm. In addition to that, the N1 chips are specially designed for the neurological disorders resulting from the inability of the brain to connect with nerves around the body; such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. Moreover, they can be developed and upgraded to treat some injuries to the spinal nerves including Paraplegia and Quadriplegia.

Elon Musk Mars City By 2050!



From the mission to Mars, to what it would be like to have it filled with people, join me as we talk about the Elon Musk Mars City By 2050!
——————————————————————————————-

——————————————————————————————-
Elon Musk is a man on a mission, and that mission is to get humanity not just to Mars, but to get them to Mars in this decade. This is why he built his own space organization in SpaceX, to do what NASA (at the time) couldn’t do, inspire the need to be in space again. And he has succeeded, and now, SpaceX is not only one of the leading places in all space travel designs and plans, but they are indeed looking to be the group to send a person to Mars. But the plans go beyond that, he doesn’t just want to land a person on the surface of Mars and say he’s done (which is what we did with the moon if you really think about it), but he wants to set up a colony there.
Surely you must be thinking, “well a colony would be nice, but that’ll take some time to get up and running, right?” And you’re absolutely right. It will take a lot of time and effort, but some of the work is already being done because of SpaceX via their Starship. You see, the biggest problem with getting to Mars…is getting to Mars. We for the longest time barely had something that could get us to the moon and back safely, and even then (like Apollo 13) it was very easy to screw up. With SpaceX though, they’ve been working on faster, stronger, and most importantly of all, reusable craft that can operate in space, come back to Earth, and then be outfitted again for future missions. And it’s this Starship class of ship that we’d be taking to Mars to go and make a colony.
Musk wrote in a message that the eventual goal for his “Mars plan” is to launch each Starship vehicle three times per day on average. Each Starship will be able to carry about 100 tons of payload to orbit, so, at that flight rate, every vehicle would loft about 100,000 tons annually, he explained.
Now, Musk may sound like he’s just spouting out a number here (and if we’re being honest…he kind of is) but in truth, he is trying to abide by the laws of space and reality. What do we mean by that? Simple, when it comes to the facts of space travel, having the right windows to travel in are essential. Not the least of which is trying to minimize travel time by making sure you are in the correct windows.
Confused? I’ll explain. Think about the solar system we are in, ok? Think about how every planet orbits around the sun. Now, if you were to look at Mercury, and its orbit, and then compare it to Earth’s orbit, you would see quite easily that its orbit was shorter than Earths by a very good margins. 88 days compared to 365. So now, compare the Earth’s orbit around the sun to Mars. 365 days…to 867 days. Yeah…that’s quite a leap. And because of that, the Earth and Mars aren’t in the same alignment most times. Thus, Musk, NASA and others are aiming to try and get people to Mars within certain windows.
“Building 100 Starships/year gets to 1000 in 10 years or 100 megatons/year or maybe around 100k people per Earth-Mars orbital sync,” he said in a tweet.
So for him, he’s thinking REALLY long term by not just trying to get to Mars, but also trying to make it so WHEN we get there, and we have enough time and resources to make a true colony, we have the ships necessary to get a full colony made in a decent amount of time. By “decent amount of time” I mean about 50-100 years. Yeah, this is not a quick process, however, the quicker we get started, the quicker we get done, right? And that’s one of Musk’s biggest goals. Trying to do things now instead of hoping something will develop later to make things more speedy. Because waiting around just isn’t good when you’re trying to shape the human race towards its future.
After hearing some of his numbers, he stated one fan asked if he was seriously stating that we could have a million people on Mars by 2050. His response?
“Yes.”
Obviously that would go against his timeline we just spelled out in part because of how long it would take to MAKE a colony that could house a million people and be both functional and self-sustaining, but hey, goals!
Before we talk about whether these goals are feasible or not, be sure to like the video or dislike it so that we can work to make these videos as best we can for you the viewer! Also, be sure to subscribe to the channel, that way you don’t miss ANY of our weekly videos!
So let’s break this down, shall we? Could we really have a full-on colony city on Mars by 2050 that has a million or so people on it?

At What Height Does Outer Space Begin?



These days, spacecraft are venturing into the final frontier at a record pace. And a deluge of paying space tourists should soon follow. But to earn their astronaut wings, high-flying civilians will have to make it past the so-called Kármán line.
This boundary sits some 100 kilometers above Earth’s surface, and it’s generally accepted as the place where Earth ends and outer space begins.

From a cosmic point of view, 100 km is a stone’s throw… and is also a limit that falls abundantly within the domain of the gravitational attraction of the Earth and its atmosphere. So, how did humans come to accept this relatively nearby location as the defining line between Earth and space?
The answer is partly based on physical reality and partly based on an arbitrary human construct. That’s why the exact altitude where space begins is something scientists have been debating since before we even sent the first spacecraft into orbit.
Where, exactly, is the edge of space? It depends on who you ask.
With more countries and commercial companies heading into the stratosphere, the debate about how to define outer space is heating up.
Ask someone where outer space is, and they’ll probably point at the sky. It’s up, right? Simple.
Except, no one really knows where “air space” ends and “outer space” begins. That might sound trivial, but defining that boundary could matter for a variety of reasons – including, but not limited to, which high-flying humans get to be designated as astronauts.
Now, with V. Galactic seemingly on the cusp of launching paying passengers onto suborbital trajectories, many people are wondering whether those lucky space tourists will earn their astronaut wings. As of right now, they will, according to U.S. practices.
Is that a problem? “No, I think it’s great!” says NASA astronaut Mike Massimino, who in 2002 with the mission STS -109 Columbia contributed to the repair of the Hubble Space Telescope.
Here, we take a look at the ways space is currently defined, the confusion surrounding the demarcation, and what the future might bring.
International treaties define “space” as being free for exploration and use by all, but the same is not true of the sovereign airspace above nations. The laws governing air space and outer space are different; flying a satellite 88 km above China is just fine if space begins at 80 km up, but define the edge at 96 km, and you might find your satellite being treated as an act of military aggression…

Artificial Gravity: Why We Need It, How We'll Do It



For those who watched, have you ever noticed that Captain Kirk is standing still on the Enterprise? Why is that? I mean, if you are in the deep space, far from any planet’s gravitational attraction, you should be floating because of the absence of gravity. Captain Kirk is standing with his feet on the Enterprise’s deck. He seems to weight the same that he would weight here on Earth, and also all the objects on the Hermes – as the interplanetary craft in the Martian is dubbed – are behaving as if they were in your room, and not in a spaceship travelling in the deep space. 
Something in the Enterprise and the Hermes is simulating and creating gravity. 
How is it possible? 
We know that Star Trek is sci-fi. But what about real life? Is it possible to recreate artificial gravity? And why do we need artificial gravity?

Imagine that you’re inside a vehicle — or another machine — and you are spinning around so fast that the force presses your body against the wall or seat. As you spin faster and faster than pressure forcing you against the wall increases (and conversely it decreases as the spin slows down). Sure you’ve experienced it before. The weight feels exactly like the force of gravity that keeps your body grounded to the earth.
Think about it. You may have experienced it in your childhood, when you visited for the first time an amusement park ride, with a classic Rotor Ride that has produced a great deal of joy since the middle of the 19th century. Did you remember it? How was it? I remember mine. It was so cool! But then I vomited. By the way, a handful of people, including astronauts, experience the same phenomenon in a human-rated centrifuge, a machine that spins to produce these high “G forces,” also called acceleration. They experience this G-force aboard high-performance aircraft during high speed turns, and during launches into space and when spacecraft rapidly slow as they reenter Earth’s atmosphere.
 
Now I want to ask you a question: have you ever heard of a reduced-gravity aircraft?
A reduced-gravity aircraft is a type of fixed-wing aircraft that provides brief near-weightless environments for training astronauts, conducting research and making gravity-free movie shots.
Versions of such aeroplanes were operated by the NASA Reduced Gravity Research Program, and one is currently operated by the Human Spaceflight and Robotic Exploration Programmes of the European Space Agency. The unofficial nickname “vomit comet” became popular among those who experienced their operation.
 But let’s go back to the Rotor Ride. 
This type of rotation produces gravity — artificial gravity to be precise. It provides weight to your body! You can’t distinguish the artificial-gravity weight from the weight on Earth: to your bones and your muscles, it wiìould be pretty much the same!
Why haven’t we built ourselves a centripetal space station yet?
One problem is the size. In fact, the scale of such a craft would pose some (big) problems. According to physics, the smaller the spacecraft is, the faster it has to rotate, so if you’re going to generate gravity, it’s got to be done with a large spacecraft that spins very slowly. The bigger the disk, the slower you can rotate it. 
Are NASA and others researching the possibility to travel in an artificial gravity spacecraft?
The answer is yes. Since the 1960s, NASA scientists have been considering the prospect of artificial gravity by way of rotation. However, the effort, funding and overall enthusiasm have waxed and waned through the decades. One example is the Nautilus-X project.

3 Nations Arrive On Mars!

3 Nations Arrive On Mars!

The Mars race to the red planet has long appeared to be exclusive to the biggest billionaires and their corporate backups, but someone else has crossed the white ribbon first. We’ll talk about these folks and more in today’s episode!

If you’re like me who loves all the news going around about the red planet, you probably would have already heard about the biggest players in the game of getting to Mars first. Of course, first and foremost, there’s the ever popular SpaceX program by Elon Musk. Then we also have Blue Origin by Jeff Bezos.You can really tell that there’s really huge interest in bagging the medal of being the first corporate entity to bring Earth to Mars. I mean, for something to get two of the world’s biggest billionaires? I don’t think they are men who like to waste time on anything they wouldn’t believe have any value whatsoever. Be honest, guys. Who among these two did you place your bets on?
Well, if you did place any money on either of them, then I have bad news for you.

After beginning their 480 million kilometer journey — or, for you Americans watching the show, about 300 million miles — mid July last year, Mars gets visited by not just one, but two unmanned space probes just this February 10th. The first one, arriving at the 9th was United Arab Emirates’ Hope, followed by China’s Tianwen-1 just about a day after.

This amazing feat placed both countries as the fifth and sixth cultures from Earth to successfully be welcomed by our vermillion neighbor. The first four to make it there were, firstly of course, the USA, followed by, India, the old Soviet Union and Europe through the European Space Agency.

Actually, if we include NASA’s Perseverance arriving by the 18th, that puts Elon and Jeff way, way behind. Keep up, boys!

As of the current moment, Hope and Tianwen-1 are already orbiting the Martian atmosphere. A Herculean challenge that they completed with flying colors.

The amazing feat that these two spacecraft accomplished is already super impressive, considering that about half of missions sent to Mars were unsuccessful. You see how many crash-and-burns SpaceX missions had in its lifetime, right?

But, okay, I know that Mars appears to be an extremely popular destination for some of the most important entities and individuals in the world, but these missions did not go there just to have a vacation. Let’s talk about what these probes were sent there to do, shall we? Let’s begin with the first to get there, UAE’s flagship interplanetary mission, Hope…or Al-Amal, as locally known in Arabic.

UAE is not entirely a newbie in terms of sending instruments in space. Officially speaking, Hope is the fourth one in their resume. You can imagine the level of sophistication in the technology that they are bringing, with the history of space missions they have already launched.
Now, let’s move on to the next visitor to our sister planet and potential future home: China’s Tianwen-1. I’d like to talk about the name for a bit before going any further, because I just can’t get over the fact that it is an extremely poetic name.

One translation of the probe’s name is “a quest for the heavenly truth”.
Last but not the least, let’s now talk about the last visitor to Mars, NASA’s Perseverance. Or Percy for short. Pretty cute name, isn’t it?

Following a long line of predecessors, one including the popular names such as Opportunity and Curiosity, this probe is tasked with a mission to know more about the Red Planet. Upon arriving within the vicinity of Mars, it’s scheduled to land on the Jezero Crater.

And did I tell you that Percy didn’t come all by himself? The rover is also carrying Ingenuity, a robotic helicopter that will serve as a part of a handful of tech demonstrations that will be carried out by the rover. The mini helicopter is aimed to determine the feasibility of flight on the red planet. Moreover, Ingenuity will fly over the landing site of Perseverance to help plan its route better, and to look for targets that could be interesting to pick up.

Einstein's Theory of Relativity Made Easy!

Einstein’s Theory of Relativity Made Easy!

From what it is, to its impact on the world at large, join us as we explore Einstein’s Theory of Relativity made easy, and explain it so everyone can understand it. (Simplified)

Watch Our “Wormhole Theory Explained – Breaking Spacetime!”

So where do we start with something as big and as complicated as the Theory of Relativity? I’m sure some of you wouldn’t even know what it is outside of its name, which is fine. But I’m sure you do know the man who came up with the idea, Albert Einstein. Einstein is revered as one of the smartest people to ever live, and he helped shape how we perceive both our world and our universe. So it might surprise you that this very brilliant man once started off as nothing more than a patent clerk. No, really, he did, and that’s part of the origin story to the Theory of Relativity.
Because one day, after doing his work at the patent office, he went on a trolley car to go home. And he would do this day after day after day. This is important because while he was on that car, he would think about the universe at large. He would ask himself questions and try to figure out the answers as best he could with the information he had. And one day, he was going away from a clock tower when he asked what would happen if the car he was on was going away from the clock tower…at the speed of light.
This may seem like an odd question to ask, but lightspeed travel is something that scientists are honestly trying to achieve right now, and these questions were truly the building blocks of this really happening. Anyway, back to the clock tower. Einstein theorized, as well as realized, that if he was moving the speed of light (which if you don’t know is 299,792,458 meters per second), the hands on the clock tower (meaning the minute hand and the hour hand) would quite literally appear to stop in place.
But, he also knew that while he himself was traveling at the speed of light and seeing everything stop more or less, everyone who was at the clock tower, and seeing things in “normal time” would not see them stop. The clock tower and its hands would keep ticking along as if nothing wrong.
Yet in this experiment, for Albert Einstein, time had literally slowed down, and it was at this moment that the “light bulb” went off in his head. Because it was through this experiment that he realized that if you go faster and faster through space, you’re actually causing time to go slower around you. But how was this possible if time was quite literally a constant force in the universe?
To try and answer this, Einstein would look to some of the other fathers of science to try and figure out the missing points in his equation. For example, he looked at the three laws of motion via Sir Isaac Newton. Newton notes that while objects do move at a certain speed, their values are never an absolute. Mainly because every speed we go at is based on a force imparted on something, or relative to something else. Such as how a car can go 65 miles per hour on a highway…but that’s only because the ground and friction ALLOW it to do so. No friction on the road? You’re not going that speed. Thus why he notes that every speed has to have “in respect to” another force or object that is allowing or perceiving that object’s speed.
However, in contrast, there is James Clark Maxwell, the father of electromagnetism, who notes that of all the things in the universe, it is light that is fixed. And as noted, light goes 299,792,458 meters per second. That will never change. That speed is another constant force in the universe. Anyone, anywhere in the world, or even anywhere in the universe will be able to determine that the speed of light is the same, it won’t change, and that’s part of the reason why the universe works like it does, because the speed of light is constant, right?
But therein lies the problem, or at least, Einstein realized that this was a problem. Because Newton said that no speed in the universe could be an absolute. But then Maxwell counters this by saving the speed of light is ALWAYS a constant. Which means that these two very universal and very accepted pieces of science are at a contradiction. Which is something you never want in the world of science, trust me.
If you’re still not getting the full picture of why this is a problem, here’s another thought experiment from Einstein to help explain it.
Imagine you are at a train station, and you are standing out on the platform when a storm comes. Then, out of the blue, two lightning bolts strike on either side of you. Because of your position in the middle of these lightning bolts, you perceive them at the exact same time, and the light reaches you at that same time.
