Going to Mars is not empty of danger. The reason behind this is the atmosphere of the red planet and the challenges faced while going there.
Elon Musk’s company SpaceX, including the US space agency NASA, is preparing to go to Mars. In such a situation, it is expected that in the coming few years, a person will step on the soil of Mars. But going to the red planet is not empty of danger, because there are many reasons that Astronaut may die before completing the journey. Let us look at some such reasons.
While going to Mars, the danger of radiation on the way is extremely high. In addition, the amount of radiation on the surface of Mars is very high. In such a situation, there is a possibility that Astronaut’s death can also be caused by radiation.
To go to the red planet, Astronaut will have to board a spacecraft. But there is a risk of this that if the spacecraft explodes during the launch itself, then Astronaut may be killed. At the same time, even after landing on the surface of Mars after exiting the earth, there is a danger of explosion in the spacecraft.
Gravity is very low on the surface of Mars. Astronaut’s bones and muscles will be weakened due to low gravity. At the same time, even after exercising, the risk of weakening of the muscles will remain. On the other hand, due to low gravity, there is also a danger of losing eye light.
Astronaut completed his journey safely and is now examining the surface of Mars. But during this time, his spacesuit explodes. There is a danger of his death from this as well. The burst of spacesuit will reduce the amount of oxygen present in it and Astronaut may die.
There are dust storms on the red planet, which often last for weeks. The amount of salt in the soil of Mars is extremely high, which is dangerous for the human body. Apart from this, this sandy air can get trapped in the doors of spaceship or space colony and prevent them from closing.
Astronauts will miss home because of being away from the Earth for a long time. In such a situation, there is a possibility that they may have to deal with mental stress due to this. Experts believe that if the Astronauts are unable to cope with this problem, then they can also kill each other in anger.
