    Dear Science and Star Wars,
    I read the book, we stuck on the Earth, but we can't travel in outer space. Let me show you. :(
    What People Need to Survive?
    To survive, humans need water to drink, air to breathe, food to eat and reasonable temperatures. None o these are available on the other planets in our solar system.
    Water is essential for human survival. Liquid water has not yet been discovered on the other planets in our solar system.
    Before we can travel deeper into space, we need to ensure a reliable supply of fresh water for space travellers.
    In space, we need to recreate an atmosphere similar to Earth's. Our atmosphere contains oxygen, which humans need to breathe for survival. The carbon dioxide that we breathe out is taken in by planets. Plants recycle the carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, which goes back into the atmosphere.
    Presently, we take our food with us when we venture into space. However, if we intend to go deeper into space, we must be able to replenish our food supply without relying on Earth.

    i still dont understand how there exist people who think the Earth is flat and dont think that space exists.

    Lol in the part about the ISS, the whole "pretend this is a live convo but it's really recorded" thing, plus the background music, make it feel like some 90s cartoon thing, or like those old documentaries I used to watch in class.

    I really like the part about the research on fighting cancer that was mentioned on this video that’s happening in space cause I’m fighting cancer right now and I’m soon to be a cancer survivor.

  • Spectral

    I'm pretty sure the things that need to be invented before NASA decides to even think about letting normal people into space is:
    Artificial gravity for ships and stations.
    an easy, fast, and safe way to earth and back.
    Enough fuel per trip.
    a good life support without the use for suits.
    enough supplies.
    any other thoughts?

  • The Forever Lasting

    In an episode of "Through The Wormhole" hosted by Morgan Freeman, there's a part about a Mexican Professor that has an equation for a warp drive that does not violate the laws of physics. Miguel Alcubierre I think his name is.

    No one in Star Wars, as far as we know, has traveled farther than 120,000 or so light-years. And maybe not even that, since it's the length of that Galaxy.

    Is there a way to make artificial gravity? That would be a BIG help for traveling in space

    I am sad to say that I have to unsubscribe from Star Wars channel...
    Knowing full well how the players see micro transactions especially the ones that are pay to win, Star Wars BF2 still had them in the game and then started amending it according to players... greed incarnate and I will not be a part of that... so I am unsubscribing from all things start wars

    One of the biggest scientific goofs in star wars is that parsecs are actually a measurement of distance. Think " She's the ship that made the kessel run in less than 12 inches" it doesnt make any logical sense

    Awesome episode. That news about the cancer attacking stuff was wonderful. Loved seeing the spheres as well, that looked cool. However, I was blown away by the little room with all the windows. That blew me away. Too bad I am so old now, it would be great to go up in space.

      Probably uses normal gasoline fuel, but would take more to gain a lot of thrust, and probably wouldn't be like how mandalorians would use jetpacks, probably would be like the jetpacks from SW battlefront.

    I found it extremely enlightening that they solved the problem of potential muscle atrophy from not being able to do resistance training. Now, they can train, at the station; that's necessary for potential prolonged space stays. #StarWars #NASA #ResistanceTraining

      DC Caleb , that's not true at all! There is still so much for you to explore in the world! Even if you aren't the first person to discover them, to explore the wonders of the world is still just as rewarding.
      As for space exploration though, (and I'm as excited for that as anyone), remember that technological breakthroughs usually come when everyone least expects them! (Like say, the light bulb, the airplane, ect.)

      Alex Williamson's blind adventures Year ago

      The reason why is because of a 100+-year-old law. This law prevents scientist from Performing any new kind of cancer research on a human. So if you’re out of earth’s Jurisdiction, No one can do anythingabout it.So When they figure out a way to kill them Completely, all they will have to do is inject The anti-body Into the Part of the body that is effected, then the problem that has killed so many will be solved.
