What I mean by this is how are we going to sort out how long it takes to get to a planet or, how are we going to face conditions through long distances.
On Monday, we discussed the distance between planets. As the planets got further away from the Sun, the bigger steps we had to take. And since we didn't talk about how long it would take to travel to one of those planets ( also because I knew that the further away, the longer travel e.g Pluto takes 9 years and 5-6 months) it came to my mind.
So what if someone went to Pluto, what would they do in the 9 years and 6 months. Report to Earth? Do daily activities that would be done on Earth? (e.g eat, drink, sleep) There would definitely be some changes with their body too.
It would also take a long time to come back too; probably the same amount of years, it would definitely be a long time before we hear of the astronaut again. It would not take a long time to go to the moon because it is close to Earth and orbits the Sun with us. Every planet orbits the Sun with us in fact!
It is the same with Mars. Mars is usually on our right and as it is close to us, from here to there it wouldn't take long.
So the question I would like to ask is: How are we going to undergo the conditions and time of Space Travel?
I would like to hear your thoughts.
