Nasa technology used on Mars 'could prevent

4 posts in this topic

Nasa technology used on Mars to find underground ice could be used to search for water hidden throughout the world’s deserts, a UN conference has heard.

Equipment used by the space agency’s probes could eventually be used to stop the world plunging into conflict and war, Nasa scientists claimed.

The probe, launched in 2007, discovered that desert which covers Mars sat on enough frozen water to submerge the Red Planet.

It used equipment, dubbed Marsis, that consisted of a radar sounder with a 131 ft (40 m) antenna fitted to an orbiter that was then able to bounce radio waves 2.3 miles (3.7km) beath the surface of Mars.

As a result that same radar technology should be used in the vast deserts of the Middle East and North Africa, said Essam Heggy, a planetary scientist.

there will be enough water to go around. with the amount of rain we have here in the North West of England we could export it. 1p a litre and we'd still make a fortune.

If there's so much ice on Mars, and even the moon. . . we should definitely keep colonization on the backburner til we sort ourselves out, then make a serious effort, once we stop the major fights, to go to other worlds with colonies.
