Did You Know?


Dr. Jay Johar: When a loved one suddenly dies, we often feel more than a sense of loss. Often, there's a sense of guilt. And rather than dealing with the pain of that, it becomes easier to postpone. You have to allow yourself to feel, Hana.
Hana Seung: I don't have that luxury. Not here.

Known facts

Mars without an Atmosphere, Magnetosphere, and Ozone Layer is routinely subjected to intense Solar Radiation.

Radiation, Electro Magnetic Radiation (EMR), Electro Magnetic Pulses (EMP) from Solar Flares is not minimized because Mars does not have a Magnetosphere like Earth.

Because of this, even without Solar Flares, placing anything electrical on the Surface of Mars is not practical no matter what kind of High Tech Shielding or Materials are used nor is living on the Surface of Mars.

Earth's "Climate Change" happened before as caused by Polar Axis Shift, At one time the North Pole was the South Pole. Scientifically measured by Magnetic Deviation aka Magnet Declination. At one time the Earth's Magnetic Deviation from True North was 0 degrees, today depending on where you are the Magnetic Deviation is 20 degrees to 21 degrees, a 1 degree change means the Earth's Surface has moved 1000s to 50,000 miles, causing near Life On Earth Ending Weather, climates, massive Gravitational Changes, Teutonic Plate Shifts that broke apart the Supercontinent into today's Continents and huge volcanoes at the edges of each Teutonic Plate, extreme Heat with Oceans and Seas becoming Deserts, the Ice Ages, Continent sized Hurricanes with wind speeds up to a thousand miles per hour, Worldwide Earthquakes, Flash Freeze Storms that flash froze humans and animals solid while walking.

"Greenland" was named Green Land, because Greenland was actually that Full of Vegetation, Plants, Trees. Then things changed, just like before cartographers (map makers) mapped a "Northwest Passage" that froze over as instead of being a warm climate (temperate climate) became the Arctic.

Inducing a 1 Earth Gravity so that Mars Explorers can safely return to Earth is a reality, based on the Old Science of Centrifuges that would be required to get to Mars in the first place.

Use of a form of Aircraft in the Thin Atmosphere of Mars is possible for Exploration, Transportation, Search and Rescue.

Today's RQs (Reconnaissance "Drones") and MQs (Armed "Drones") have multiple sensors, day and night vision, Thermal vision, electro optical, that can easily detect anything human sized day or night, even detect tire tracks at night.

Too many Studies concluded that U.S. Army Special Forces (with U.S. Military Women trained by the CIA's SOG and SAD as U.S. Army Special Forces) trained as Scientists are the best selection for the First Mars Explorers and Colonists. Already Psychologically conditioned and experienced of doing the Long Term (Years) Isolated Missions, Operations, Tasks at Extremely Harsh Environments like the High Altitude Arctic Winters at Afghanistan's Pamir Mountains and Hindu Kush, unlike the other U.S. Military Special Warfare Forces only Short Duration (Hours, Days) Direct Actions and U.S. Military Conventional Warfare Forces requiring extensive Logistical Support. Most U.S. Army Special Forces have Multiple College and University Degrees, some Trained as Physician's Assistants with Surgical Skills to conduct the Humanitarian Assistance Mission.
