    @David B. Grinberg great comment, it makes me happy, I will answer for points too:
    1)Elon Musk this only getting notoriety for being a trailblazer of modern times, it starts to break image, practically a white beard of literatures pirates.
    2)A grand challenge for our society, I believe in this philosophy of try and try again until you get the success of your dreams, fall and rise believe it is the best quality entrepreneurs today.
    3)All that brought some disruption of ancient precepts has a certain notoriety, is a mission and both want to colonize another planet, but the many years believe that Christopher Columbus was a madman.
    4)As the competition for who will be able to reach Mars first I accompanied several news, and even have read your article, which by the way is lovely, I'm predicting a crazy race between European space agencies, American, Russian and other locations and great visionaries like Elon now just the question, who can accomplish this done first.
    thanks for sharing your opinion and this post.

    Kudos on the excellent buzz @Flávio Rodrigues Vieira. A few points:
    1) I admire Elon Musk for thinking big about interplanetary travel within out own solar system and announcing those plans publicly.
    2) Landing humans on Mars is a big enough challenge. Colonizing the Red Planet is an even bigger goal. This fits in with my philosophy of no risk no reward. Those who never try never succeed. Those who never fall never climb.
    3) In cosmic analysis, this is just a baby step, but an important one. Whether SpaceX, NASA, another country or commercial space startup is the first to land humans on Mars remains to be seen. But every goal starts with a vision and Elon Musk has always been known and admired for thinking big.
    4) On the other hand, I think other space startups are too concerned about profits over space exploration and discovery. A good example is Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. Moreover, NASA needs to reevaluate its own Mars Mission agenda in light of Musk's bold pronouncements, as I recently wrote here back in June https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/nasa-budget-needs-big-bang-for-mars-mission
    Thanks for considering these points, Flavio, and great buzz!

    @Robert Cormack thanks for the question, good is true fact that we have many planets with similarities to our beloved land, the big problem is how to get around to them, since the speed of light is around 1 billion km / h there is technology to travel so fast and yet is little speed compared to the nearest star; Centauri is at a distance of 4.2 light-years from our solar system. Even with our closest neighbor, but still it would take thousands of years to get there using current technology.

    New episodes of "Ancient Aliens" every Friday night on The History Channel or check it out online. I believe this is the 11th season already so that's over 100 episodes. Thus, there must be something to it. Why are most people so afraid to think outside-the-box or arrogant enough to think we're alone in a vast and expanding universe reportedly 14 billion years old with hundreds of billions of galaxies -- each galaxy containing hundreds of billions to stars and solar systems. It reminds me of when Issac Newton falsely convinced the world that Earth was the center of the universe and everything else revolved around it. How naive in hindsight.
    Lastly, there's two cool new shows you all might like: 1) "Westworld" - series premiered last night on HBO (futuristic theme park with AI human robots to satisfy the fantasies and desires of high-paying guests (based on novel by Michael Creighton, who went to my high school, albeit before me -- and produced by creator of Lost); and 2) "Timeless"- future time travel, series premier TONIGHT on NBC at 10 pm (EST).

    Thanks for sharing this, @Nick Mlatchkov, As you may know, there's a whole field of what's been labeled as "pseudoscience" about so-called "Ancient Astronaut Theory" and/or "Ancient Aliens." There's even a long-running TV series on the History Channel you may have heard of called, "Ancient Aliens." This is all very intriguing, to say the least. Moreover, there appears to be strong circumstantial evidence to support these theories, albeit no "smoking gun" evidence to convince the general public. http://www.history.com/shows/ancient-aliens/articles/ancient-alien-theory and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_astronauts

    By the year 1956, the earth was "clean" and only fragments orbiting our planet were sporadic meteoroids or small space rocks ... but in 1957, it launched the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, the former Soviet Union. The rocket responsible for putting it into orbit dismissed one of his pieces, and marked the beginning of a great space junk heap that now orbit our planet.

    And to exemplify the alarming situation, the astronomer Stuart Grey, University College London, created a video using data with the precise location of each piece of space junk, available in space-track.org. Remember that space debris shown in the video is not to scale.
    The large pile of debris was accumulating at an exponential rate, and in 1961, the launch vehicle Ablestar, carrying the satellite Transit 4A, exploded in orbit, adding about 300 fragments volume that orbited the Earth.

    In 2007, the number of trackable space debris (with size between the size of an apple up rocket engines) had already exceeded 9,000. And to top it off, the same year 2007 exploded a Chinese ballistic missile (test), adding 2,000 more pieces to swarm.

    In 2012, more than 23,000 objects larger than 5 cm were being monitored by the Space Surveillance Network American. And if we consider above 1 cm objects, this value amounted to more than 500,000!

    The danger of space debris

    Even a small piece of 5 cm is considerable danger. Orbiting the Earth at hypersonic speeds, these tiny fragments may contain the same energy of a hand grenade, which can rip the protection of a spacecraft, for example.

    The International Space Station (ISS), in turn, has special protection to prevent any fragment might compromise the mission and life of the astronauts on board, but still, she needs to do some maneuvers from time to time in order to avoid catastrophic collisions, as occurred in 2014 and 2015. in this last maneuver, the astronauts had to take shelter in the Soyuz capsule as the collision risk was too high.
