Scientists will travel to another planet. It will last 1000 years Source:

— our only home, but it will not last forever

An Outstanding astronomer called our only home the pale blue dot and talked about the necessity of careful attitude toward it. The world is facing a lot more threats than in the past, and one of them — climate change — represents the most serious danger. But if something happens to our planet, where will we go? Recently a team of scientists from seriously ask this question. The researchers intend to develop a plan for the colonization of distant from Earth exoplanets.

This is a really difficult job. As reported , the researchers are considering the likelihood of a long journey to another solar system, namely Proxima Centauri. may take centuries or even millennia. This means that the life of whole generations will pass on Board the spacecraft. However, the challenges facing such a mission are so many that scientists ' comments sound somewhat unexpectedly.

Theoretically travel to another star system possible

Executive Director of the Initiative interstellar studies Andreas Hein said OneZero, that from the point of view of physics fundamental obstacles for such travel no. There are a number of other issues that researchers have yet to find, but with regard to the fundamental laws of physics, then none of them will be broken. However, just to build a spacecraft to populate his people and to send into space today we can't. Researchers have to figure out how to sustain human life in such a long space journey. And if you remember the results of the latest research, even 50 days spent on the ISS is fraught with blood flow. Besides, sending humans to still remains in question, since scientists have not found an effective way to protect the astronauts from deadly cosmic radiation. Moreover, there are other health problems that can occur because of prolonged stay in weightlessness, and some of them are still practically unstudied.

But even if we assume that in the future most of the above problems will be solved, there is still one unknown — namely, the exoplanet, which will go the space ship. Whether it would be hospitable?

Before you is a twin of the Earth — exoplanet in the star system of Proxima Centauri — Proxima Centauri B

Can't help noting that the development of this plan resembles the plot of a sci-Fi works of the French writer Bernard Verbera "Star butterfly". The novel tells the story of the billionaire and talented scientist who work together on a space ship called "Star butterfly". The ship will go on a thousand-year journey to a distant , and on Board the butterfly will be 144 thousand people. That flight happened to passengers "Star butterfly", it becomes clear by the end of the journey, as the planet gets only two. Turns out, scientists have to consider not only the obvious, physical threat of space travel, but also how people will behave, which will not be able to leave the spaceship. Besides, where is the guarantee that a few generations later, the colonists will not change his mind about the mission that they carry from birth?
