Energy for a Future in Space
Updated: Sep 10, 2020
The British physicist Stephen Hawking (1942-2018) believed that in 100 years' time humans would have to find a new planet in order to survive, after having rendered most of the Earth uninhabitable.
Mars would be a possibility, but as it is about 229m Km from the Earth, a lot of energy would be required in order to get there and to survive there.
A mini nuclear power plant to supply light, heat and energy for tehnological equipment for many years might be the solution as it would work both in Manchester and on Mars.
Research for a future life in space can also benefit present life on Earth.
