A frame from the movie “The Martian”

Humanity’s dreams of colonizing Mars appear to remain dreams. A recent magnetic storm has revealed a new obstacle to colonization of the red planet.

Mars has no magnetic field and therefore no protection against solar radiation. Therefore, recent disturbances to the Sun literally heated the atmosphere, causing aurora and significantly increasing the level of radiation on the planet. Scientists explain that if a person were there, he would receive radiation equivalent to thirty x-rays. According to Space.com, this was the highest level of radiation seen on Mars in the last 12 years.

The Mars rover Curiosity captured solar particles entering the atmosphere, causing the equipment to malfunction for an hour. We recently wrote that UNESCO plans to send a capsule containing humanity’s cultural heritage to the Moon. The data will be translated into 275 languages ​​of the people of the world.
