Hey North sauce, Collin here. This weekend, as if it were a sign from the space gods, the holy trinity of Vsauce one, two, and three have each bestowed unto us a 10-20 minute video talking about Mars exploration. Since you should all currently be building your habs, these videos may give you some things to consider.
Instead of making every last one of you sit through 40 minutes of Mars facts, I will just give you a choice of three different prompts (each for its own video) and you get to choose whichever one particularly tickles your peach.
After choosing your prompt, be sure to write down which prompt you’re responding to at the top of your post.
Prompt 1: Watch this video, and then consider the importance of preserving extraterrestrial life. Is it our duty to protect potential martian life? Why is it so crucial to help Mars before we help ourselves?
Prompt 2: Watch this video. in the video, the importance of things like music and culture to the psychology of astronauts is brought up. Outside of maintaining mental health in the harsh environment of space, how is culture important? Why is it worthwhile to preserve culture, on Earth and in space?
Prompt 3: Watch this video. Is space exploration important to our species? Why or why not? What is the significance of exploring the final frontier, and the significance of putting another member of our species on another celestial body?
If you’re interested, I encourage you all to watch the other Mars videos that Vsauce has done.
