Within the next 5 Years, NASA will have humans flown to the Moon. The space agency is also working on making a trip to Mars following the Moon mission. The space exploration mission has been taken up to help solve the mysteries surrounding the various undiscovered bodies and events in the dark Universe. According to Nobel Prize winner scientist Michel Mayor, the idea of sending humans to space leaving behind the Blue Planet is not a good idea. The possibility of humans colonizing on any other Earth-like exoplanets is probably impossible. The humans should rather focus on having resources saved and produced for making Earth healthier and habitable for the future generation.
The distance between our planet and the other neighboring systems is quite far. The researchers must have found the exoplanets to be habitable from the research point of view but, in reality, it can be completely wrong as well. The possibility of having a habitable environment, resources, and safety are all prohibitive factors in terms of the exoplanets. The livable planets in our galaxy are found to be located a few dozen light-years away. However, our Blue Planet is extremely beautiful and livable. NASA had thought of shifting humans to other bodies after finding the humans to have ruined everything on Earth. Technologies are being used to explore and study our Solar System from the future aspect.
Likewise, NASA has been working on a space weather mission but ironically it has been delayed again due to the terrestrial weather. The agency has it’s Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON) spacecraft ready for launch boarding a rocket landed by a plane this evening. The bad weather conditions near Cape Canaveral Air Force Station prompted mission staff to call off the mission by a 24-hour delay. The new launch window is expected to have taken place on October 10, 2019, at 9:25 p.m. EDT and lasts for almost 90 Minutes. The Space.com will be broadcasting the entire launch on NASA TV or directly on NASA’s website at 9:15 p.m. EDT on October 11, 2019. NASA, thus, has many missions in hand to achieve.
