Life It’s Self


In the beginning, there was nothing but dust and no cosmic radiation, just cold dark space. Many years passed on…and…on…and on, thus has come a new era waiting to give birth soon…soon it will burst.

Then that’s when it happened-The Big Bang, the big bang was a big explosion of cosmic radiation spewing for eons to search to make life possible. But the cosmos was too hot for life. 70 Million years have passed and Stars are forming quickly to provide the gravitational pull that makes planets form into perfect spheres. And a little after 4.5 billion years, our solar system started to form, where the only home we have ever known-Earth.

Earth is magnificent, it provides everything for life to be possible, from plants to oceans, but don’t get ahead of yourself, it’s not quite time for oceans and plants to form. The basic ingredients for life are simple, energy-geothermal heat, gases- oxygen and carbon, a liquid such as water. These elements could have quickly found a foothold for life but on the other hand why water? Well in gases atoms move so fast they can’t catch up, in solids atoms are stuck together they can’t move, but in liquids, they can cruse, cuddle and link up to form molecules. Now we are at the point of life on earth. Why was life created? Why do we ask questions about why we

are here? Why do we have so much curiosity? well, the answers lie in the vast parts of space. To get there we need to go to earth and see the first things that happen. traveling 4.5 billion years into the future we see that life can easily adapt to hostile conditions. 230 million years ago from where we are now in the present day lies the Cenozoic Era.Cenozoic

The Mesozoic Era lies within Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs ravaged the earth. The most dominant of them, the Tyrannosaurus-Rex.

Earth had a warm Tropical environment most likely to support reptiles and insects. But let us travel a bit further into the future. From the present day, we are traveling 7 million years into the past. Humans first appeared as the most intelligent species to ever exist as we know so far today. We wrote cave paintings for the future to see how we evolved from the paleolithic ages to the Middle ages to the present day we know today. The present days we know now are amazing earth is just too perfect for humans in this era.

We sent rovers to Mars in search of life on the planet. But don’t feel down yet because, on July 20, 1976, the Viking rover found something unsuspected. The rover found a perfect amount of earth martian soil. Was this a sign of our first encounter with alien biology?

A once known friend of mine told me to reach the stars and become who I want to be when I get older. And I said, yea I will, and do you wanna know what I said I wanted to do, I said I wanted to go to Mars,Mars reach the stars and travel through the milky way in search of life. So by all of this writing of the story what does it add up to you, does it seem like life is just a tale in a book and we are just dreaming, or does life make sense for once. Why do we ask questions about ourselves? Why do we want to reach the stars?

Can we just go up and search? No, we can’t, there are many steps to doing these things. We must plan out the science, we must do the math, we must plan things ahead of us, we must meet problems head on, beat them and overcome those problems.

Make this a lesson as a short story of why life might exist.

life is staggering in numbers, the number reaches up to 100,000,000,000,000 habitable planets. just imagine what other species would look like, what would we find out about ourselves.

Thus we must plan things head-on before we meet the problem face to face. NASA taught me one thing: I went on a tour to the Kennedy space organization, they said to follow your dreams, just like my once friend told me. So follow your dreams. Meet the odds of perseverance.

The moral of the story doesn’t end here we need to just pinpoint how and why life is possible and why it exists. This is just the beginning of the story. Lets travel a bit into a couple days after december,6,2018 nasa scientist discovered something remarkable the viking rover as we talked about,found a simple relative soil sample just as the one the rover recorded in 1976.

The soil sample that they found,could be a foothold for life,the sample included a small trace of moisture how and why. Scientists still don’t know how or why. The only possible reasoning could be during a sandstorm near the poles of mars swept up some ice on the poles and carried it out near the site of where the rover was. Or was it placed there. But let’s not talk nonsense. The only piece of evidence found was a trace of mars soil,a little bit of moisture and the rest picked of parts of boulders that got chipped off of them from incoming sandstorms.

This could explain why some moisture was found,but how did the ice melt?

Mars temperature in the day is below freezing. This could not have happened, but however this might have been a sign of first contact with another planet’s wonders.

All we know is that we have not found spectacle evidence of actual life forms on any moons or other planets in our solar system.

Our solar system is filled with wonders waiting to be discovered, and we have barely scratched the surface of those wonders. However there might be a foot hold for life somewhere out in deep space. A Nasa scientist found a planet called T-Gardeen-B this planet orbits a red dwarf star in our nearest solar system, however the planet is very close to this star and the planet has a rocky surface and might have oceans to preserve life as we know it. Let’s get to the facts on this planet.

We know that the planet is very close to the star so there is a good thing about this and there is a bad thing about this. The planet could be tidally locked to one side, one side frozen in darkness, and the other hot and burning in flames. But let’s not guess that this is happening right now because we don’t yet know this. The possibility rate of the planet to support life is about 65% which means that we have a good chance of finding oceans on the planet.

Where there is water there is life so our best chance of finding life out there is to look for ocean worlds like earth. The guessed amount of earth-like planets is 100,000,000,000,000 in the milky way galaxy alone. Which means we have a good probability of finding habitable planets like earth.


We have come so far in our creation of life why stop the journey here when you can move on to other galaxies and reach the stars in the night sky, just why exactly do we do these things, well we do them because we care about the better good of humanity_Charles Grochala

The tale of life is just one chapter in, we still have billions of years left to go maybe even trillions

of years to go. Thus we know the things that we want in our future, this could be working as a law enforcement officer, or becoming an airforce pilot. All these things we do we do for the better good of humanity, we do it for ourselves most of the time. But the people that save us from danger and save our lives, and the people that search for a cure for cancer are the ones that we should be thanking, everyday of our lives. Just take a minute to enjoy what people do to make the world a safe place for your family, your children, your brothers and sisters, for your pets. All of these things people do for the better good of humanity, they do it because they care about people. Just imagine how much money people spend in america per year, just guess… 4.4 trillion dollars per year. That’s how much we throw our life’s away. Now for 1 minute i want you to think about all the wonders of earth, like the flowers you smell in the spring to the food that you eat on thanksgiving day, or just simply the things you love. All those things that you think of are the heart of (life) Life is full of possibilities we just need to reach them in order to have them.

Find what you do love and throw away the ones that you don’t want. Take a minute to think about those things, think about if they can change something in your life if they will harm you in the future or will they simply make your life a better place.

Now back to space and whether not we can reach the stars further than we have ever reached. We look forward to it, we should always think about the future and how we can get to our future, how we can make our lives better. We can be scientists or astronomists, or just simply extremist waiting to see the future. But guess what, all of that is going to happen in the next 5–10 years. We’re sending humans to mars in 2025, hopefully we have the chance to terraform the planet and grow and sustain plants to regrow the wonders of life that could have existed before we had technology and before we even existed. Icy enceladus have frozen oceans of water, we once thought that enceladus could support life, when the oceans could have melted and bathed for eons. This could have happened from when the beginning of the solar system was created and the ambient temperature was about 76 degrees fahrenheit. That is enough to have a tropical effect on moons in distant areas in the solar system far from the sun. Now we don’t have factual evidence on whether not this did happen or not. We don’t know now because the ambient temperature is too cold to have oceans in distant parts of space. We know that there can be oceans within the habitable zone of space, this is where we live.

Gases can form in the mid area of our solar system because the ambient temperature reaches 455 degrees fahrenheit. This can cause strong gravitational pull just like the planet jupiter, jupiter is the planet that has the most strong magnetic field.

I hope you enjoyed today’s article and hope for another see you soon and don’t forget to follow me im really looking forward to it.
