Don't hate the religion just because an ignorant person made a stupid comment and just so happened to mention God. Even though I myself am not religious, I have met a lot of smart/ logical thinking religious people.

Can't go uphill
Can't go from standing to laying on the ground without a dramatic temperature change
Can't get in an elevator
Can't climb 15 stairs
Can't jump as high as I can reaching my hand out as high as it can without it burning up.

Did she think this through?

Im not sure if im reading this chart right, but does that mean temperature wise, mars is habitable?
User avatar #98 to #77 - burningsmurfs (05/14/2013) [-]
I think that if disastrous atmosperic events hadn't occured on mars then it could be habitable by humans with less modifying that would require now. And Venus would be quite cooler probably if all the atmosphere didn't trap in extreme amounts of heat since it touches the habitable zone. I am not an expert in any shape or form and I can't tell if this is something I learned/saw on a science show or if this is just more garble the voices in my head planted in my brain. I have no citations. You have been warned.
#103 to #77 - linkcic (05/14/2013) [-]
There have been several discovery channel specials on the topic I believe. Yes, Mars can be terraformed for human habitation. It would just take an extremely long time.
#154 to #103 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
The gravity is not strong enough to hold in oxygen.

So yeah, you cant terraform **** unless you plan on somehow making the plan spin faster.
#166 to #154 - linkcic (05/14/2013) [-]
I know you're anon and you'll never see this, but you might want to check your facts. It's not the earth's gravity that keeps oxygen from escaping and gravity is not why Mars cannot keep gases. It's true that it's lighter density has prevented it from forming an atmosphere, but this does not mean that it is incapable of forming one with human interference. Mars is theoretically capable of maintaining an atmosphere similar to earth's with some help from us.
User avatar #146 to #103 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/14/2013) [-]
it requires us making it a stronger magnetic field and then filling the planet with oxygen and greenhouse gasses, not such a easy job, eh?

Actually, Earth doesn't have a perfectly circular orbit, so, its distance from the sun changes. It's furthest distance and closest distance in its orbit are separated by about 5,000,000 km. Differences of 5 feet in distance are made many times a day.

According to this information we'd die every year just because of our elliptical orbit.

The earth travels in an elliptical orbit, therefore Earths "Aphelion" or most distant from the Sun is 9.4 million miles and the Earths "perihelion" closest point to the sun is 9.1 million miles, with a difference of approximation 300,000 miles. This does not even account for the earths tilt which could add hundreds of miles of "closer earth" in the winter. The winter is when the Earth is closest to the sun.

91 million and 94 million and 3,000,000
User avatar #112 to #100 - vexaton ONLINE (05/14/2013) [-]
Are you australian? How can it be closest to the sun during winter, when it's the coldest?

I'm not retarded by the way, I just need an explanation.
User avatar #117 to #112 - oceanmist ONLINE (05/14/2013) [-]
when light has traveled 93 million miles, a few extra million doesn't really diminish the energy that much. What matters much more is the angle the light hits. When its shining dead on its more concentrated than at an angle. Like when you shine a flashlight at a single spot, or at an angle. Even at the same distance the dead on one is brighter.
User avatar #165 to #117 - vexaton ONLINE (05/14/2013) [-]
Like I said further down, it would make sense if that "winter" was on the southern hemisphere. Surely it has to be warm wherever it's closer...
User avatar #114 to #112 - mattmenzo (05/14/2013) [-]
The Earth is on a tilt like this " / " the reason Australia in fact has winter in the northern hemispheres Summer is caused by this tilt.

Lets say this --> O is the Sun and ---> \ is the Earth tilt on an axis

During the Summer in the northern hemisphere the sun and earth appear as so: O \
The top of the backslash would be the North Hemi and bottom the South Hemi. The tilt in the Earth exposes more land to the Suns radiation. This exposure of surface area is responsible for the hemispheres warming during the summer and Southern hemispheres cooling. Conversely during the North's winter it is opposite and therefore Australia has Summer in this configuration O / while the north has its winter.
User avatar #164 to #114 - vexaton ONLINE (05/14/2013) [-]
Yes, I know this, I just figured that it would not make sense that it is closer when it's winter, because it depends what you think of as "winter". I know the physics, it's the basics that confused me.

The question still remains, do you mean it's closer during a northern hemopheric winter, or a southern one,
User avatar #172 to #164 - mattmenzo (05/15/2013) [-]
The whole earth is physically closer to the sun during the months associated with northern winter.
User avatar #173 to #172 - vexaton ONLINE (05/15/2013) [-]
Ok. That's weird but I believe you.
User avatar #174 to #173 - mattmenzo (05/15/2013) [-]
It has more to do with exposed surface area then proximity. Imagine if you you had two pots containing 3 cups of water on a stove, one pot was tall and narrow, while one was wide and flat. which pot would the water boil in first?
User avatar #175 to #174 - vexaton ONLINE (05/15/2013) [-]
Wide and flat because of surface area on the bottom. Yeah
User avatar #176 to #175 - mattmenzo (05/15/2013) [-]
Exactly

Of course the Earth can be anywhere from 147,093,602 km to 152,097,053 km from the sun depending on the time of year. At least I think those are the right values.
#23 to #20 - parkourdemon (05/14/2013) [-]
You're right. The difference between summer and winter is a little over 3 million miles. The interesting thing is that in the northern hemisphere we are actually closer to the sun during winter and farther away during summer. This is because We are tilted away and receives less sunlight. The southern hemisphere is closer and receives more sunlight in the summer and is farher away and recieves less sunlight in the winter, resulting in harsher seasons.

I'm not going to let my kids have internet profiles until they're 13 or 14 for this reason. I had a YouTube account when I was around 11. Damn, did I make an ass out of myself.
