Water On Mars Is Trapped Inside The Planet!

Is there water on Mars?
How can we explain the absence of liquid state water on its surface?
Is there any chance to extract water from the inner of Mars?
How much water was present billions of years ago on the red planet?
Scientists are trying to figure all of these things out. 
As years pass by, we start to get new answers, which lead to new important questions. 
But, why do we care about water on Mars?

Are you thirsty? Good news: we got water. And maybe it is much more than you think.

The first spacecraft from Earth to visit Mars was Mariner 4 in 1965. Since then, several robotic spacecraft have flown by, orbited, or landed on Mars and sent back lots of information about this world so different from our own.
Mars is a cold, bleak wasteland, with very thin air that we Earthlings could never breathe. However, many of the pictures our telescopes, orbiters, and rovers have sent back show signs that liquid water might have been on the surface of Mars long ago. Also, we can see ice caps at the north and south poles.
All these signs of water are very exciting. Why? Because on Earth, almost everywhere there is water, there is life. Whether the water is boiling hot or frozen, some sort of creature seems to thrive in it. 
At this point, is fair to ask ourselves: is it the same on other planets? 
If water once flowed on Mars, did life once thrive there too? 
Or, maybe there is still water on Mars, only it has gone underground. Could there be tiny life forms—like bacteria—on Mars even now?
That’s why we are looking for water. Is it enough for you? 
“Can Mars support life?”: this is what we are actually asking when we ask “Is there water on Mars?”.
All of these questions – together with the curiosity of human mankind – pushed us to go and see what we could say about Mars, the dream planet, which some braveheart already calls “Second Home”.
If we ever find water on Mars – or at least if we ever find a way to get water on Mars without bringing it from Earth – it would be a revolution, and we could start to drastically change our mindset in the prevision of human colonization of Mars. 
Probes were launched. Laser beams were sent on Mars and reflected right back on Earth. Telescopes were pointed on the Red Planet. Thousands of images were captured. A big quantity of cinematical, spectroscopical, chemical and biological data was collected by scientists over the years. Rovers landed on Mars, etc…
As you can see, we spent a lot of effort to understand better the secrets of this Romantic, cold, red planet. 

Here’s what we already know about water on Mars. 
On Mars, meteor strikes may have generated tsunamis 10 times larger than anything seen here—behemoth waves of destruction capable of submerging the Statue of Liberty and the Capitol Building.
The mega-tsunamis would have occurred about 3.4 billion years ago when two large space rocks slammed into a chilly sea in the Martian north. The first of these impacts, according to a study published this week in Scientific Reports, spawned massive, nearly 400-foot-tall (120-meter-tall) waves that carried bus-size boulders many miles inland. The waves flooded more than 220,000 square miles (570,000 square kilometres), an area larger than the many U.S. States. How do we know that?
Today, evidence for these ancient cataclysms takes the form of channels carved by the receding waves, lobe-shaped fields strewn with boulders, and craters that appear to have been filled with now evaporated seawater.

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?
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?
