Do Extraterrestrials Exist?
The most intelligent thing we find in space is our own astronauts.
Do extraterrestrials exist? The answer is no they do not. After years of research, theories, and hope, no conclusive evidence has been found. What we have discovered so far, the fact that space is so deadly, and there are no radio transmissions from space, leads us to believe that they don’t exist, so why do we still hold out hope? There truly is no intelligent life outside our atmosphere.
The article from SETI is extremely crushing to itself. SETI, which stands for Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence, was founded in 1984 by Carl Sagan and Frank Drake. The title of SETI’s article is, “Search for aliens comes up empty, but extraterrestrial life could still be out there” (Shostak). It comes up empty, no life was found, or even a trace of a possibility of life was detected. The author is grasping at air to support the notion that life exists beyond earth. 1984 to 2019 is a long time to be searching with no results. This doesn’t help their case for extraterrestrial life.
When you think about all we know about our galaxy and space, in general, it doesn’t seem plausible for life to exist in such a harsh environment. Even for a human protected by a spacecraft can face challenges. NASA says, “Space is a dangerous, unfriendly place. Isolated from family and friends, exposed to radiation that could increase your lifetime risk for cancer, a diet high in freeze-dried food, required daily exercise to keep your muscles and bones from deteriorating, a carefully scripted high-tempo work schedule, and confinement with three co-workers picked to travel with you by your boss” (Perez). How much more dangerous is space for anything living out there with no protection? We live on earth where warmth, oxygen, and food exist. They say space isn’t cold because it isn’t anything, but it definitely isn’t ideal for life. The space around earth is about 50.3 degrees, in interstellar space, it is closer to absolute zero, which is what happens when atoms and molecules stop moving altogether. There is also barely any oxygen in space or on most planets. Food is necessary for all life in order to function. There isn’t a Mcdonalds providing food up there. There is no way life could exist. We exist and thrive because we have all that is necessary, but anything possibly living in space would die. Life simply cannot sustain itself in space because it is without these essentials.
We use radio signals to attempt to find intelligent life in space every day. SETI says, “The bottom line of the new observations? No extraterrestrial radio emissions were detected. Sure, there were plenty of signals, but all could be ascribed to human activity — either transmitters here on Earth or orbiting satellites” (Shostak). There are responses from us, not aliens. Transmitting radio signals is a futile act and SETI, or anyone for that matter, can’t prove signals have or will ever come from extraterrestrials.
So, does extraterrestrial life exist? No, it does not and you can see why. Alien life cannot exist because nothing has been found that would suggest they’re out there, space is so inhospitable that it’s impossible for life to survive, and even when people try to intercept radio signals from space, there is nothing to intercept. The most intelligent thing we find in space is our own astronauts.
Abstract Health risks associated with long term space flight are generally categorised into two main causes: reduced gravity and space radiation. The current numbers of astronauts, either retired or current, is often not sufficient to form conclusive suggestions. Overall, there is very detailed analysis of the functional risks to the body outside of low Earth orbit and for long term loss of normal gravitational forces. However, there is a disparity in countermeasures to protect astronauts embarking on long term missions,...
Have you ever wanted to go to a different planet? Have you ever wondered if going to a different planet is even necessary at all? Throughout the 20th century, our views of life on another planet has changed drastically. This essay will argue that a mission to Mars is not mandatory and instead dangerous. Because there are many risk like a virus being brought to Earth. Ethical issues like money. Therefore, astronauts should not go to Mars. If scientist decide...
INTRODUCTION The aim of this research paper is to evaluate, the critical areas related to, ‘The effects of competing risks on astronauts and cosmonauts.’ In above mentioned research which is a part of the area for the study in, Life Sciences in Space Research, it has been mentioned about the effects for the lives of our spaceman researchers. I have structured this research paper as following sub topics research method, motivation, problems, solution suggested, main contribution, identifying clarity. RESEARCH METHOD...
Mission STS-51-L, Challenger (OV-099) on 28 January 1986, the space shuttle Columbia the first space exploring disaster which causes the death of 7 astronauts, is the death of the astronauts worth it? Many people around the world are sacrificing themselves in order to explore space. Most people are looking at the sky above and start wondering what is behind it while their earth is literally calling for help, is there anything special about space that could overwhelm people about the...
In cancer research, viability tests are immensely significant. These tests are used to observe the characteristics of different kinds of cancer. In drug development, viability of hostile cells are tested against chemical substances to evaluate the potential of those substances in pharmaceutical use. Additionally, the adequate dosage for those drugs are also studied in vitro. Established in 1977 from a patient with acute myeloid lymphoma in the National Cancer Institute in the United States, human Caucasian promyelocytic leukemia (HL-60) cells...
Humans have been using animals for many uses like food, commotion from one place to another, games, and for many other purposes. One of the extended uses of animals is their use in research. With the advancement of medical technology, the count of animals being used in the experimental research has sky rocketed. Millions of experimental animals are used for the research purposes all over the world. For example, in UK, in the year 2011, the number of experimental animals...
ABSTRACT Since the implementation of the decentralization policy in education management in 2001,many local governments (PEMDA) decide to teach English as’ Local content’ at the elementary school level (or even in kindergarten). This LG problematic because the implementation of this without coupled with special preparatory efforts English teacher to teach in elementary school. This article discusses the profiles of English teachers who are required by proposing five main requirements: understanding the nature of children; knowing how children learn; know how...
Mars is the fourth planet in our solar system, yet its environment is extensively chillier than Earth. This is due to Mars’ weak atmosphere – less than 1% of Earth’s – which prevents the planet from preserving heat for lengthy periods of time and is less covered from the Sun’s radiation. Earth is made up of 21% oxygen which is indispensable for human beings to survive, whilst Mars’ atmosphere is made up of 95.97% carbon dioxide and has solely 0.146%...
Cell Division Mitosis Mitosis is a stage within the cell cycle whereby the parent cells divide into two to produce two identical daughter cells. Each daughter cell results with the same identical genetic information like the original mother as well the fertilised egg in which it originated from. Mitosis is the division of non-sexual cells. It is significant because it takes part in the development of embryos and the growth and progression of bodies. The nucleus divides and imitates the...
