Why we are going to explore the mars?
We should explore Mars for many different reasons. Space is the final frontier of exploration. What better place to start than Mars, the closest planet? Mars is a lot like the earth. It has ice caps at its poles. Its day is about as long as ours. Mars also has canyons and mountains, similar to Earth. We also think Mars may have had water in earlier stages of development.
Mars also could help us find some of the secrets of the development of our planet. Mars may hold valuable minerals which could be very useful. We could find a new energy source that would be very valuable. We should also explore Mars out of pure curiosity, since the days of Orson Wells and his "War of the Worlds" (which caused much hysteria), people have wondered about Mars. We have just begun our journey into the Solar System and with new information and data being revealed every day, we should definitely explore our neighbor and fellow terrestrial planet.
For Dr. Adrian Brown, a SETI planetary scientist searching for extraterrestrial intelligence, the most obvious benefit of Mars exploration is the advancement of science.
"In trying to reach out to the next frontier, we always have to reach out to the limits of our technology," Brown says. "Just consider the Age of Discovery. We wouldn't have invented such precise timekeeping and navigational technology if we didn't need to in order to cross huge expanses of ocean to reach frontiers in Asia, Africa and the New World."
In other words, to satisfy our human thirst for exploration, we'll have to push technology even further. In the same way that the 20th century space race gave us such innovations as long-distance telecommunications and water filters, the technologies we develop for Mars will affect life on Earth.In addition, the exploration and eventual colonization of Mars would give humanity the foothold we need to spread to other worlds -- a move that cosmologists such as Stephen Hawking identify as a crucial step in the long-term survival of the human race.
