How long can you stay alive on each planet of the solar system
Despite numerous problems and shortcomings, the Earth is still a great place. Just think about it: colorful sunsets, warm ocean breezes, dog, corn chips, Doritos - much pleasure! Finally, take at least the fact that we now do not evaporate without a trace. Yes, life on earth, the demon of doubt, beautiful - especially when you compare it with the conditions of any of the neighboring planets.
If Elon Musk gets its way, we will all soon to relax on Mars. But until that happens, it is necessary to continue to live here on earth. Believe me, not worth the risk and go to other parts of the solar system before all precautions are met. The famous American astrophysicist, author and popularizer of science Neil Tyson explains why. In short, be anywhere in space - a real disaster for the human body. Moreover, even staying in space in a protective suit does not guarantee the preservation of health. In other words, nowhere except we could not Earth would survive longer than two minutes.
So, here's a brief guide to the solar system, where each item ends with imminent death. However, there is one pleasant exception.
Let's start with the most intrusive option. On the sun, without a doubt, you will instantly be burned. "You simply evaporate, - says Tyson. - It is actually so fast that it will likely not hurt. And yet, our star - not the best place to visit. " Total Time: less than one second.
side of the planet facing the sun is very hot. The maximum temperature is about 427 degrees Celsius. Conversely, the opposite side - damn cool place. There's cold reaches minus 179 degrees Celsius. Tyson says that if you manage to be right on the line between these two poles and rotate between them, perhaps, "you could spend as much as you can hold your breath."
Total Time: about two minutes.
is easy to understand that at a temperature of about 482 degrees Celsius, or about any of the Venusian landscape speech can not go. "By the way, Venus is the same force of gravity on Earth, so you can walk - Tyson says - just a little longer, until evaporate."
Total Time: less than one second.
Due to the wonderful oxygen in our atmosphere, food and water, as well as everything else that makes our home the Earth fit for life, you can easily spend 80 years here. In fact, you can even spend more if you live in the "blue zone", that is one of the few places on earth where people tend to live longer than the world's population as a whole.
Total Time: about 80 years
"Mars is very cold, but the atmosphere there is very sparse," - says Tyson - so cold intensity will not be as sharp as it could be felt, whether such temperature on Earth. " Due to some warm, very, very warm clothes, you could walk on the surface of Mars for as long as there was a need to take a breath. How is going to solve this problem Musk, is still unknown. So, the total time of life: about two minutes.
Since Jupiter - a gaseous planet, life there could be extremely uncomfortable. On - or in - this vast world, "you always have plunged into the gaseous atmosphere and down as long as would not be crushed under the influence of gravity."
Total Time: less than one second.
Saturn, Uranus and Neptune
See above. As in the case of Jupiter, you dive deep into these gas giants, and ultimately will simply be crushed. Alas, even the rings of Saturn can not find a place with a solid surface to walk, albeit short-lived. So, bummer. It seems, will have to somehow try not to destroy the earth.
