@NatachaPalay has a theory. She is not a Scientist, but has studied Biology, Chemistry, Pre-Med (for three years), Psychology, Sociology, Marine Biology, and has been an Avid observer, Artist, Nature Lover and research collector her entire life. Plastic Continents feels compelled to share this theory, just so it can be read, heard, and hopefully defied.
The theory hasn’t been completely developed, but it goes as follow: “Earth is slowly turning into another “Mars”. Imagine this: water is life. Ocean is the water resource our Earth needs to strive, stay hydrated, and survive. What we are doing now is polluting the ocean to a point where it’s fragile ecosystem cannot function properly. Like our bodies, if you do not feed it with the proper nutrients, complications arise. Disease begin to develop (Coral reef dies, species become extinct) our atmosphere very much like our skin becomes thin and translucent and easily bruised, pierced, and hurt. If we want to survive as a species, shouldn’t we work as one? Stop pretending we are individuals when we all know we are all connected…. but what do I know, it’s only a theory”
There are significant differences between the planets, but their tilt is similar, their outer surfaces have similarities, in the last 15years we have been able to prove that their was once water on mars, and free flowing sand that shows movement existed. According to NASA.gov, there are eight co-authors of the Nature Geoscience paper, including Mary Beth Wilhelm at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California and Georgia Tech; CRISM Principal Investigator Scott Murchie of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland; and HiRISE Principal Investigator Alfred McEwen of the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in Tucson, Arizona. Others are at Georgia Tech, the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, and Laboratoire de Planétologie et Géodynamique in Nantes, France.
“It took multiple spacecraft over several years to solve this mystery, and now we know there is liquid water on the surface of this cold, desert planet,” said Michael Meyer, lead scientist for NASA’s Mars Exploration Program at the agency’s headquarters in Washington. “It seems that the more we study Mars, the more we learn how life could be supported and where there are resources to support life in the future.”
The discovery is the latest of many breakthroughs by NASA’s Mars missions.
What do you think?
It’s a bit out there, it is true. But if we are set on the Big Bang Theory, or the Theory we come from Apes, can you easily dismiss this one as well?
If Earth were to hypothetically slowly be turning into Mars, because of its source of water being polluted, compromised, towards a point of no return, what would our next steps be? How could we fix the issue? What are the solutions? Individually, we could make our own sacrifices to reducing our waste, make sure that it doesn’t overwhelm the balance and ecosystem of our ocean. Shouldn’t we start looking into Farms Ecosystem? How do the waste of the animals affect its surrounding? Which are the components to helping clean up the waste? In a fish tank you have the Plecos fish.
The Hypostomus plecostomus, the suckermouth catfish or common pleco, is a tropical fish belonging to the armored catfish family, named for the armor-like longitudinal rows of scutes that cover the upper parts of the head and body.
Members of the Loricariidae family of suckermouth catfish, Plecostomus, or Plecos, have specially adapted mouthparts, enabling them to attach to substrate. Most Plecostomus are peaceful fish and prefer to rest or slowly graze over the aquarium bottom, and do an excellent job of cleaning unwanted algae from the bottom and the sides of a fish tank.
It would be interesting to see past research on these animals, and what the equivalent species are that reside in the ocean, and help keep it clean.
