Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on another planet? Well science is just starting to maybe make your dreams come true. However, there is a debate about whether or not we should colonize mars. In my opinion I believe we should, the advantages of colonizing a new planet could be unimaginable. In this Mars essay example I will give you the three main advantages of moving to mars is the relief of the problem of global warming, overpopulation, and the demise of earth in case of a larger scale meteor attack, or any cosmic danger.
One key aspect of moving to mars would be the remodel of a planet like earth. With speculations of the earth's global warming and steven hawkings chilling prediction about how we have gone past a line of return regarding global warming, it would be of our best interests to colonize another planet similar to earth. If something were to happen to our green planet concerning the heat, we would ultimately pass as a species, but what makes us different from other life forms is our abilities for imagination, and adapting technology to surpass risk, and open more options. Another compelling reason to go to mars is the cosmic danger. If the earth were to be threatened by a meteor/ asteroid we would have nowhere to go, and we don't have the technology to stop a planet sized space rock. So if we were to colonize mars, even if the population on earth would dissipate our life form would thrive on mars.
Another main reason to commit to going to mars is, the growing population on earth. In the early 1900s the population census on earth was roughly 1.6 billion but a matter of 118 years the growth has skyrocketed to 7.53 billion humans roaming the earth. With many speculations of world renown scientists such as Stephen Hawking (who recently passed on March 14th, 2018) about how it may be earth’s demise. Their predictions can be backed with many mathematic equations and population growth charts. Another aspect to consider is the danger of sun. Since we are closer the sun than mars, if the sun were to slowly grow larger and start to make the planet uninhabitable, we would need to leave. But if we didn't colonize another planet we would be stuck on earth to either starve or bake to death
Although the claims for the mission planned by SpaceX founded by Elon Musk, a very talented engineer, there are also many claims against his idea. One of them is the cost factor. Sending humans to the moon alone was very costly, and with the growing debt in america and our allies, we really don't have the money to spend on theoretical decision, and spending the money on sometimes seemingless technology could affect our already damaged economy. Another reason to not send humans to colonize mars is, the danger. The danger alone in just constructing the rocket is nerve racking, let alone the launch which has proved in the past with unmanned rockets to sometimes end with a catastrophe.
In conclusion the pros of sending humans to colonize another planet supersedes the cons of not. If the planet were to be in danger with overpopulation, a death from sun radiation, meteors, or global warming we would need a place to go, and the most considered option would be to move to mars, a planet that was once just like earth, and might have had other life forms, but that's a talk for another day.
