A space elevator may change how we explore our solar system

In the times of rockets, the best way to explore our solar system was by making orbital refueling stations. In this way rockets would only need enough fuel to get to orbit, then they would be refueled or even added onto for the journey to the destination (let’s say Mars for example).

In this video, the space elevator is a part of the system that helps us explore our solar system.

I’ve been keeping my hopes unbroken. Space exploration is all around me, it is my remedy.

As we explore outer space we have encountered many strange things, that will no doubt allow us to learn more about our planet, and ourselves

Here are a few things that will be of concern for space travelers and those who want to settle on other planets.

1) Ever wondered how and why plants have evolved to make use of radiation to power their growth and life: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiotrophic_fungus

2) Well apparently planets without a magnetic field–or only a small magnetic field–are bombarded by radiation that will be a risk to settlers: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2004/17feb_radiation/

Here is some information about the magnetic field of Mars:

Perhaps humans will have to live underground in some places to avoid radiation, or build radiation absorbing materials around themselves.

3) Low gravity also seems to harm people’s eyes: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/news/Astronaut_Vision.html and this is bad news for pilots, this is something else that needs to be researched no doubt.

Micro organisms (including bacteria) can become dangerous, and even evolve in outer space. They can be a risk to astronauts, and even start to eat the space station materials for example: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2000/ast26nov_1/

“Micro-organisms also evolved and became highly aggressive:” http://www.rt.com/news/iss-bacteria-mir-mutation-765/
