The First Baby That Will Be Born In Mars

Tahmini Okuma Süresi: 2 dakika

Recently mankind made Mars the center of the all of research about space. There are a lot of different reasons of that. On the other hand, Mars is not as favorable as you guess. No planet will be favorable and comfortable as our home planet Earth. So the first baby that will be born in Mars needs to be prepared as it is exciting. Turkish scientist Dr. Umut Yıldız from NASA founded a group in Facebook to collect people who want to discuss about that. This group is available for everyone. If you have some thoughts about this topic you can easily join the group and start to discuss. Let’s start with some estimation about the first baby that will be born in Mars.

The Nature of Mars

Doğa dediğimizde aklımıza Dünya tabiatı gelir. Fakat Mars gezegeni bundan çok farklı bir doğaya sahiptir. Şüphesiz Mars’ta doğacak ilk bebek için de en büyük zorluk bu doğal koşullar olacaktır. Mars yolculuğu şu anki teknoloji ile en az 6 ay sürecek bir yolculuktur. Bu yolculuk süresi de oldukça zorlu geçecektir. Bu 6 aylık yolculuğun sonunda da tabi ki inen ilk insanlar şezlonglarını serip güneşlenemeyecektir.
Tabi şu anda dahi olası en yakın tarih 2030 olarak öngörülüyor. O zamana kadar neler olur bilinmez fakat şu anda karşılaşacağımız zorluklar çok büyük. İlk olarak Mars atmosferi Dünya atmosferinin yalnızca 3 te 1i kalınlığında. Dolayısıyla güneşten gelen radyasyon çok daha tehlikeli olacaktır. Aynı zamanda Dünya atmosferinin %78 i Azot %21 i O2 den oluşurken Mars atmosferinin %96 sı CO2 den oluşur. Dolayısıyla doğrudan insanların bu gazı kullanması mümkün değil. Marsta yaşayacak insanların dışarıya çıkarken sürekli olarak oksijen maskesi kullanmak zorunda kalacaktır.

Earthal Selection

We are living creatures that have evolved on the planet Earth and are harmonious here. Mars, on the other hand, has the opposite conditions. For example, the planet Mars is about half the Earth's mass. However, gravity is also lower. That's a big problem for human anatomy. This problem can be explained as follows: Bones and muscles of the astronauts that remain at the International Space Station for a long time are melting over time as they are not used for a long time. For this reason, astronauts retain their muscle mass by splitting them into heavy exercises for 2.5 hours a day. But the bones cannot be so easily preserved. For this reason, astronauts who land on Earth are transported by wheelchairs and underwent physiotherapy for a few days. This could be the most difficult thing for an organism evolved according to world conditions. On the other hand, there are a lot of different things like solar winds, high radiation, cold weather conditions. Moreover, after a 6-month journey there will not be a center for physical therapy. (Probably)

Pregnancy Difficulties

Pregnancy is already a difficult process in many aspects of the world. Both hormonal fluctuations and physical development can be a major problem on Mars. If we think about the first baby will be born on Mars, it seems a low probability that pregnancy will begin on Earth. Because we are talking about a journey that will last for at least 6 months. Moreover, in this process, 2.5 hours per day of heavy exercises don’t seem like at all for a pregnant woman. At the same time, a high level of radiation below the unprotected atmosphere can have a very bad effect on the baby. For all these reasons, a pregnancy to start on Mars seems more likely. But this will lead to a very difficult process. There are many difficult needs to be met during pregnancy even on Earth. For example, she will live in a cave-like space under the ground for protection from radiation. Staying in such an environment for a long time can cause psychological destruction. There are many other possible problems like this. Of course, we will see whether these problems can be overcome. The process we are talking about is a process that can only take place at a later date. Before the first child will be born in Mars will probably be colonization and an environment quite similar to the conditions of the Earth. Of course, we assume that there is no emergency.
