See your death on every planet in our solar system
JVTech News See your death on every planet in our solar system
Space exploration can be both exciting and dangerous. The Newsweek newspaper thus details the survival times of each of our solar system’s planets, some of which are more astounding than others.
Dangerous journey through our neighboring planet
If such a subject at first glance can make you smile, this helps to better understand the conditions of life on the planets of our solar system. Thus, we can better imagine the conditions for life on such and such a star. Let’s travel through your solar system to find distant lands that fortunately will never be explored.
It is the planet closest to the sun, but also the least massive, which gives it its extreme specificity. You have a choice between extreme heat or extreme cold. On the sunlit side, you can get up to 427 degrees Celsius. All the water in your body will evaporate in an instant. Survival takes seconds.
Instead, on the other hand, we are down to -183 degrees Celsius. If it’s clear that you’re about to freeze in place, it will take much longer went into hypothermia and lost all vital functions.
The average temperature is 167°C, which also evaporates all the water in your body. These extreme temperatures are caused by a lack of atmosphere. Without forgetting that we need 21% oxygen to breathe, mercury is guaranteed shortness of breath.
The planet Venus is quite close to Earth, much more extreme. Just look at the temperature which reaches 462°C. The worst thing for the human body is the atmospheric pressure 92 times higher than Earth’s. It’s like being at the bottom of the ocean, you will only break.
If you tried to breathe on Venus, you would instantly die of asphyxiation. The air is 96% carbon dioxide. Not to mention the acid in the air which will burn you from the inside. Survival will not exceed a few seconds.
There’s been a lot of talk about the red planet establishing a potential human colony. We can therefore say that it is the most habitable planet in our solar system and it is. This does not prevent that no one can survive on this planet with protective and respiratory equipment.
The amount of oxygen is only 0.145% versus 96% for carbon dioxide. For temperature it’s another story. If at most we reach a very reasonable 20°C, the average temperature is -63 and can down to -143°C.
Therefore, it will take you longer to die on Mars from asphyxiation, but death is inevitable.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune
The four great gases are grouped together here, because they share common characteristics that don’t stand a chance for humans. The principle of gas planets is that they have no surface, unless we think of the core as a surface.
In terms of vitality, on the surface of the core, we end up with temperatures exceeding 8,000°C. If you don’t yawn right away, the atmospheric pressure is equivalent to 160,000 cars piled on top of you.
Knowing that the clouds are at -100°C, you won’t even notice your death. You will first faint and die in seconds.
And the Moon?
Our moon is no friendlier than some planets. Lack of oxygen will cause you to pass out before dying of asphyxiation. The absence of an atmosphere also causes deep variations temperature ranges from -150°C to 150°C.
Finally, it’s about what happens if you fall into the void of Space. Surprisingly, this is definitely not the worst death. In 15 seconds you pass out and in just one minute you will die.
What we can conclude from all these different deaths is that Earth is where we were created to live. If there’s one thing to see in all of this, it is we have to protect our home, because there is no magic planet.
