CSP presentation PPT final

  1. 1. Man on the Moon By: Marissa Langevin<br />
  2. 2. Colonizing the Moon<br />Cons greatly outweigh the pros<br />Humans won’t inhabit the Moon, it will be a whole new species<br />$10-20 billion each year to sustain<br />Being strapped to bed could hurt<br />Hard to hold food, brush teeth, and other everyday tasks<br />
  3. 3. Moon vs. Mars<br />Has been discussed among astronauts for over 50 years<br />Decided that we will colonize the Moon before Mars<br />The Moon is 238,857 miles away, Mars is between 36 million to 250 million miles away<br />Could get to Moon in 3 weeks going at 500 MPH on a jetliner; 6 months to go to Mars<br />
  4. 4. Apollo Missions<br />Nine Apollo missions have been sent into space<br />Seven missions had men land on the Moon<br />The first two missions had to go back to Earth before landing<br />First mission made 10 orbits around the Moon<br />Second mission came within 50,000 feet of landing<br />
  5. 5. LCROSS “Shooting the Moon”<br />Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) “shot the Moon” on October 9th, 2009<br />Sent a satellite into the Cabeus A crater in search of ice by the southern lunar pole<br />Found the ice, which can be chemically reduced to oxygen <br />
  6. 6. Marius Crater<br />Only known area on the Moon with oxygen<br />Enough oxygen to sustain a colony<br />213 wide by 269 feet deep<br />Could lead to breakthrough and help us find other craters with oxygen<br />
  7. 7. Spacesuits <br />Help to regulate temperature and oxygen <br />Will help to slow muscle atrophy and bone decalcification<br />Takes 500 man-hours (2 ½ years) for one person to make one spacesuit<br />All spacesuits are 3/16” thick, and made of 11 materials<br />
  8. 8. Spacesuits (cont.)<br />Apollo spacesuits weighed 180 pounds (30 lbs on Moon)<br />Current spacesuits weigh 310 pounds (103.3 lbs on Moon)<br />Spacesuits are white because they reflect the sun’s light and heat<br />
  9. 9. When We Might Colonize<br />Within the next 40-70 years<br />No definite plans where on the Moon to colonize<br />Would cost $10-20 billion per year to sustain the colony<br />
  10. 10. Pros of Colonizing <br />Great space observation location<br />Rest stop for astronauts, place to refill rocket fuel<br />Telephone‘s could be used on the Moon, with only a 3 second delay<br />
  11. 11. Cons of Colonizing<br />Many health risks<br />Lunar soil is extremely abrasive and toxic, and causes serious lung conditions<br />Hospitals would have difficulty functioning on the Moon<br />There is a risk of getting hit by a meteorite<br />Risk of jumping too high, or falling off the Moon into the never-ending depthsof space<br />
  12. 12. Health Risks<br />Still developing children and young adults’ spines and digestive systems would grow to abnormal lengths<br />Children would die before having offspring<br />Very poor blood circulation<br />Muscle atrophy<br />Bone decalcification<br />
  13. 13. Evolution to New Species<br />Evolution is constantly occurring<br />In space, humans would evolve into a completely new species<br />
  14. 14. Thank You for Watching<br />To me, colonizing the Moon is an expensive and risky task that may cause more harm than good to the human race in the long-run. <br />I hope you enjoyed my presentation<br />
