A guide to rocket propulsion. 🚀
Mars is 52.225 million miles away from Earth. Alpha Centauri is 4.367 light-years away from Earth. Icarus, the farthest known star is 5 billion light-years away from Earth.
With our current chemical rockets, it would take 9 billion years to reach Icarus! Not only that but companies like SpaceX charge $62 million to send a commercial satellite to space. Clearly, these rockets are not efficient, cost-effective, or powerful enough to make space travel feasible.
These reasons have prevented space travel within deep space, but to combat this, new methods of propulsion are currently being explored to make space exploration and inhabitation a reality. …
Look up at the sky and the sun and the stars and the moon. Don’t you feel a pang of curiosity and wonder coursing through your body? Don’t you want to fly up to outer space and take a long look at it for yourself?
But wait… something is stopping you. 🤔
You think “Why should I waste time going to space and exploring it when I might as well spend my life working towards solving the big problems here on Earth?”
Exploring space proves to be advantageous in many cases and using it to reach higher levels will improve humanity as a whole. …
Read one page every night and you’ll end up finishing a book. Write one sentence a day and you’ll end up writing an entire article. Exercise one minute a day and you’ll end up with beefy muscles. 💪 💪
Seems simple right? Well, that’s what Atomic Habits by James Clear is all about.
