Technology is one of the ultimate aspects to the survival of our humanity. There is not that many other factors that have catapulted us as a civilization, as time and time again, the inventions from the railroad to the computer chip, have done wonders to the progresses that have to do with our processes of trade, transportation and our overall mode of thinking taking down walls of perception that we as a human entity have any limits that curtail our infinite dwelling of exploration. Humans are natural at being explorers, and as we enter new chapters, in yet another phase into human uncharted territory, that spans further than the moon and stares right into the red planet — Mars,  which is the closest to our own planet of the Earth. As the presidential election closes, the best candidate has won, and the current president readies himself to pass the baton to take over, it is without a question that all matters related to space and its exploration have to be further discussed. In case no one has noticed, while technology within the earth brings up countless of items and advancements for people to consume, there has to be more discussion about a race that has been taking place to build a spaceship that can put human beings and safely take them to where no one human has gone before.

The goal is complicated, yet the probabilities are not as unreachable as they were once before.The current president of the United States has literally put the thrusters, as his vision to send explorers to Mars is one that is of great ambition and of great importance as there are various companies in the private sector that are putting their resources along with their intellectual prowess to form groups of teams to realistically make this vision take place into a concrete sequences of trial and tests to obtain the results that when ready can catapult us into a reality that makes the human race into a trans-planetary species. In other parts of the world, China, members of the  European Union, India and Russia are all in for this challenge, as they are also using their resources to provide answers to all the complicated questions accompanying such incredible tasks, while the United States works with a private sector that has the most interesting twist as there undoubtedly is a brilliant collaboration between the public and the private sector that looks to expand beyond the profit model and touches upon the unordinary which is to travel to and from with the set mind of not just being able to go to mars, but more ambitiously gather the reality of beginning to grasp how is it that with all the information that has been collected through satellites and rovers that we can as human understand how to colonize that red planet.

The next president will no doubt have their hands full dealing with a  globalized world and the continuous unpredictability of nature, but the next elect president of the United States can not afford to ignore one bit of the progress that is taking place between the private company (Space X) and the public government agencies (NASA & Boeing)  as this space race can be the blast off the advancement to humanity. While a worst case scenario that includes the pipelines continuing to be laid and to explode, tankers capsizing and the carbon emissions fail to drop to the point that the planet becomes unable to host humans, than perhaps a path towards redemption will have been served by the actions that were taken by the 43rd elected president of the United States. The government agency of the US, has with the president laid a bold plant that is aiming to colonize Mars by 2030, to what extent this concept of colonization is not exactly clear, but the point at hand is that the government of the United States and its space agency is in a way back in business from what seemed to be a too long of a dormant state, where the only thing that had seemed to happen was launching satellites and missions to the International  Space Station.

Now the prospects of setting foot in our nearest planet do not seem impossible to take place within the lifetime of our grandchildren and with the recent explorations of the curiosity rover the thought of having a way to preserve human life in a martian atmosphere can even begin to have a sense of plausibility that can induce the notion that perhaps the grandchildren of the millennial generation can have (if all goes according to plan) a one of a kind trip to another planet as a viable choice during their lifetime. This is the process that is taking place and with a president that is open and supportive to the trials and errors that should take place between all public and private actors that are involved in making a sustainable form of transportation that can safely take cargo as well as human beings to a whole other planetary frontier within our solar galaxy – giving the human race the chance of being able to travel to a neighboring planet.
