Each night when we look across the sky we always think to touch them and shift our sweet home around them thanks to the living superheroes like Elon Musk who want to colonise Mars by 2025 but is this process really possible in near future? Here we will let you know developments made in this field and how much stones are yet to uncover.
What is Interstellar colonisation?
This phenomenon includes sending of various concepts of embryos or other life developing cells from Earth to an extrasolar (exoplanets) planets around any other star system. “The technologically more challenging but more flexible scenario calls for just carrying the biological means to create embryos, that is various samples of donated sperms and egg cells”.
For this the very first thing we need is a big even giant spaceship with a way larger speed than normal spaceships.
Regardless of the “cargo” used in any embryo space colonization scenario, the basic concept is that upon arrival of the embryo-carrying spacecraft (EIS) at the target planet, fully autonomous robots would start the first settlement at the planet will start cultivating foods but Initially planets will be terraformed first and then after these embryos could be unfrozen also in this process we would need to develop an artificial uteri. The embryos would need to develop in such artificial uteries until large enough population is present to procreate using biological means.
Developments and other concepts in this field :
Many physicists have proposed the idea of sleeper ships,in which adult humans will be sent in sleeping for long time using researchs on hibernation as we have already seen in Passenger movie.People from different cultures and social backgrounds need to be collected for this so that once they reach those exoplanets, they could spread their knowledge of respective Art and Sciences.
Difficulties in extrasolar developments :
Biological : Each fluora and fauna needs their respective atmospheric pressure and biological conditions to develop. Every exoplanets will have their radiation levels and cosmic activities which can also have adverse effect on the embryonic cells.
Robots : whether we could ever create the robots with such high intellects and understanding so that they could themself start the life or could grow foods on totally different conditions than the place where they are being tought.
Ethics vs Artificial Intelligence : this is also the most popping question that if children and organisms can be raised in the absence of biological parents but only with Artificial Intelligence. Will they get intellects towards life?will they could ever understand the basics of life without being able to see the blessings of mother? Will they further reproduce biologically or will they rely upon the methods over which they gained life.
Spacecraft Propulsion System: a rocket propulsion system is much needed that could accelerate the spaceships to a high speed and decelerate again upon nearing the destination. Even assuming a speed one hundred times faster than any of today’s spaceprobes and a target planet within a couple of hundred light years would lead to a journey lasting several thousand years.
Exoplanet : the biggest and the most important aspect of all these processes is to find a suitable exoplanet with reachable distance, with bearable cosmic activities and which could be terraformed with present level of science within less time.
