The Future of Space i wonder if we can explore the milky way ?

How do we explore space? Do we use a giant Robot or do we use a giant Spaceship? Also Are there any life out there and if there is then where are potential places that we can find them .Since technology is much better than before ,so there are machines out there that we can see out there in the future .

The Neumann Machine

Since it takes a estimate of 2.5 to 3 billion years relevant to Earth to explore the whole Milky Way, we have to nail it down and this is exactly what a mathematician did. His name is John Von Neumann. He created what we know as Neumann Machine. This machine self replicate itself or will make more itself. This machine can do the job easily and quickly and also believe to be breaking no laws of physics. This machine will simply launch itself in another planet and take if not all than most of the planet’s and then replicate itself and repeat the process . The good news of this technology will nail the exploration down to approximately 4 million years relevant to the Earth which is pretty good if you’re covering 100,000 light years. The bad news is that we need more development to reach the that stage because we are missing 3 vital parts which is a great deal artificial intelligence so the machine can decide to go to a rocky planet instead of a burning star, miniaturisations so we can give all the commands in one tight space , and better propulsion to go through space with minimal fuel needed. After we have these parts , then we can expect the Neumann machine out there somewhere in space .

This is the New Horizon getting near the dwarf planet Pluto

The microfluidic electrospray propulsion spacecraft

The other spacecraft that we can use in future is a pocket size a propulsion concept that work like this . This concept is called microfluidic electrospray propulsion this work by the first and lowest layer which is a layer of metal which have to melt at a pretty low temperature then you have electrical current that goes on top of the metal so that the metal can melt . the next layer is a layer of very strong metal that have very small hole in it so the molten metal can literally spray out.How we are going to use ut is that we are first going to send hundreds of the little thing into Earth’s orbit and when we want to we can send hundreds and hundred of these things and to explore deep space to find more discovery. The excellent thing about this is that all of the cost together only cost as much as a space shuttle and because of this if you lose you say 10 of them then you don’t care .

Potential Life

But , if you don’t want to have such a project that is that huge , then you might think of going to certain places that you are if not sure then almost sure that we can live on. First let's start out with our own solar system so we can save a few billion dollars first the first one that might be good is Europa - the moon of Jupiter . This moon is found to have frozen ocean that use to be water flowing around. But the problem to this is that it is very far from the sun so we might need to have to use artificial sunlight and have to melt all the ice so too expensive to explore right now . The kuiper belt can also be a place to search for live because again there is a source of water which is vital for life. Freeman Dyson , an astronomer , “Europa and the kuiper belt are very likely to have life on it .“ This means that we can explore these planets and have a higher chance to find life that other things in the places in the solar system

that Another planet that can have potential life on it and the planet in called Kepler 186f where can potentially have life on it because that it has everything life needs to survive.

Europa- the moon of Jupiter

Neil Armstrong , First man to land on the moon,One step for man ; One giant step for mankind .

This means that the struggles and accomplishments of mankind and what we can do things greater in the future !

Relevant- closely connected or appropriate to the matter in hand.

Replicate- make an exact copy of; reproduce

Laws of Physics- A physical law or scientific law is a theoretical statement "inferred from particular facts, applicable to a defined group or class of phenomena, and expressible by the statement that a particular phenomenon always occurs if certain conditions be present."

Approximately - about ; estimated

Light Years - a unit of astronomical distance equivalent to the distance that light travels in one year, which is 9.4607 × 1012 km (nearly 6 million million miles).

Vital - very important ; necessary

Artificial Intelligence - the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages

Miniaturization- the trend to manufacture ever smaller mechanical, optical and electronic products and devices

Propulsion -the action of driving or pushing forwards

Minimal- of a minimum amount, quantity, or degree; negligible
