Rockets & Space

History Repeating?

What if we never knew about space, never made it to the Moon, never knew there was something beyond the Earth's atmosphere? Would history repeat and we would find out and explore space like we did before? For thousands of years we did not notice the existence of the solar system. It was believed that the Earth was stationary at the centre of the Universe. While the Greek philosopher Aristarchus of Samos theorized on a heliocentric reordering of the cosmos, Nicolaus Copernicus first developed a mathmatically predictive heliocentric system. Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, and Isaac Newton, developed an understanding of physics which led to the idea that the Earth revolves around the Sun. The first exploration of the solar system was conducted by telescope, when astronomers first began to map those objects to small to be seen with the naked eye. Galileo Galilei was the first to discover details about the individual bodies of the solar system. Galileo has discovered numerous vital facts about space. Would that mean that if we never knew about space we would need the same exact people to discover it again?

Future, We'll Be Further

It is proven that in the future we will go farther and explore the other planets in our solar system, but will we ever explore outside of our solar system? To explore things outside of our solar system it would take massive amounts of fuel,food,water,and oxygen also it would take hundreds of years to travel such far distances. The rockets would need to be able to withstand being in space for that long. It is possible that we will be able to make a rocket that can do all of these things and hold all the items that will be needed based on the progression of how rockets have been built over the years, but until we're able to make all these massive changes it could take hundreds or thousands of years. There are at least 100 billion galaxies in the universe. A galaxy is full of stars: Our Sun is just one of at least 100 billion stars in our own Milky Way galaxy and each of those stars could have their own planetary system, which means of course we're going to explore past our solar system sometime durring the human existence. It's just a matter of time before we find out a way.
