The earth is the only intelligent and civilized planet in the solar system. The reason why the earth will become a beautiful planet of life is that there is a very important external element that is in the habitable zone. Only planets in a habitable environment can form a suitable ecological environment. There will be a large amount of liquid water resources on the surface and a thick atmosphere will be protected.
Without this important external condition, it is basically impossible for the earth to become the current civilized planet. Therefore, after human beings walked out of the earth, the first thing to explore is the habitable zone of the solar system. Within this habitable zone, the Earth is not the only planet. We also have two neighbors, one is Venus and the other is Mars.
Since Venus is closer to the earth, the first planet to be explored after human beings walked out of the earth was Venus. But when the probe reached the orbit of Venus, we discovered that it was a planet of purgatory. The very thick atmosphere of Venus blocks our sight of detection, and 95% of the atmosphere is carbon dioxide. The terrible greenhouse effect makes the surface temperature of Venus as high as 460 degrees Celsius, and there is also an acid rain layer in the atmosphere of Venus, which often rains acid rain.
Such a harsh environment of Venus hindered our probes from detecting, so in the end, scientists had to give up exploring Venus and focus on Mars. Compared to the environment of Venus, Mars is much better. Human probes can not only learn some conditions on the surface of Mars from the orbit of Mars, but also can land on Mars for close-range mobile detection.
Through continuous exploration of Mars for half a century, we have also gained a lot of knowledge about Mars. At the beginning, scientists believed that Mars was very desolate, a red desert planet with no water and life on its surface. It is also believed that Mars has remained desolate since its birth, but as the exploration continued to deepen, we discovered a large number of ravines, canyons and basins on Mars. These places have been eroded by water. There are indications that a lot of water once existed on the surface of Mars.
Therefore, after research, scientists believe that about 4 billion years ago, Mars was also a beautiful ecological planet like the Earth, with oceans on the surface all over the world, and there was life. And because Mars is farther from the sun, the early cooling time is earlier than that of the earth. The earlier cooling caused the water vapor in the Martian atmosphere to condense when it was cold, and the rain condensed into the ocean on the surface of Mars, and the early stage was born. Primitive life.
That is to say, the formation time of the Martian ocean may be earlier than that of the earth, and the time of birth of primitive life is also earlier than that of the earth. However, because Mars does not have a strong magnetic field to protect it, the atmosphere is constantly losing, and finally the surface water is also constantly losing, life is also extinct and disappeared, and it has become a desolate desert planet.
The tragedy of Mars did not take place on the earth, so life on earth continued to evolve, and finally human beings were born and human civilization formed. So someone put forward such an interesting topic: if Mars did not become a desert planet, but continued to be a beautiful ecological planet like the Earth, then the primitive life of Mars will continue to evolve, and there will be a high probability that a smart civilization will eventually be born. , Forming a Martian civilization.
If Mars gave birth to a Martian civilization, the development process is similar to that of humans, and the advancement of civilization strength is about the same. When humans leave the earth, Mars civilization may also leave Mars. When both civilizations have stepped out of their home planets, it is only natural to find each other’s existence. After human beings walk out of the earth, they will see a beautiful Mars and guess that there may also be a planet of life and civilization.
In the same way, the Martian civilization will also see the beautiful earth and guess that the earth may also be a living planet, and there are also earth civilizations. When two civilizations launch probes at each other, the existence of civilizations will be completely exposed. At that time, can Martian civilization and human civilization live in peace?
Some people may say that both the Martian civilization and the human civilization are in the same solar system. We should be able to live in peace. Is this really the case? Let’s not consider that Martian civilization will treat human civilization selfishly. Let’s first look at what kind of attitude human civilization will have towards Martian civilization.
Here, let me ask my friends first, are human beings a peace-loving civilization? Some people may say that human beings are particularly kind and peace-loving. If you think so, it would be too hypocritical. In fact, we have seen a history of war in the history of human civilization development for tens of thousands of years. From the Stone Age to the present age of science and technology, there have been many large and small wars within human civilization.
Especially in modern times, two world wars broke out within human civilization. Through a history of wars, we can also see that human beings are a very warlike nation. Even in the modern era of relative peace, there are no major wars, but small local wars and small frictions often occur. This is a war gene engraved in human bones, and it is difficult to fundamentally change it.
There will always be wars of hegemony in human civilization, so facing an alien race completely different from human civilization, can we live in peace with it? I am afraid it will be very difficult, unless the alien civilization is stronger than ours, forcing us to dare not provoked, and even we will take the initiative to make a peaceful voice and communicate with it.
But if the strength of this alien civilization is similar to that of mankind, or even weaker than mankind’s strength, mankind may not be able to conduct diplomacy in a peaceful way at this time. It is to plunder and colonize. We must know that due to the problems of resources and population, human beings desperately want a second earth to live and survive.
At this time, we discovered that there is another Mars in the solar system that is completely suitable for human survival. Just imagine what humans would do? That is to remove all obstacles and take Mars as your own. Of course, before colonizing Mars, we will first evaluate the strength of Martian civilization. If we find that the strength of Martian civilization is not as good as ours, then an interstellar war will inevitably occur, and the home game will be near Mars.
Humans treat Martian civilization like this, so what will Mars civilization treat mankind? In fact, it is difficult for us to judge this point, because many of the militant personalities of human beings are influenced by the culture of human civilization for thousands of years. If the Martian civilization went from birth to development to technological civilization, there would be no hardships and no wars.
Or the entire Martian civilization has been a whole from the day it was born, unlike human civilization with hundreds of countries. Then the Martian civilization may have always been peaceful and stable. Under the influence of this kind of culture, the Martian civilization may have no war factor. The attitude towards human civilization may be very friendly. In that case, they will not take the initiative to invade the earth.
Of course, if the Martian civilization is the same as the earth civilization, it is also a long history of war, then no matter who the strength of the two is strong or weak, an interstellar war is also inevitable. It can be seen that it is not a good thing for two intelligent civilizations to be born in one star system. Once they both have strong strength, the possibility of interstellar war will be very high.
In the end, an interstellar war may be a devastating disaster. It is important to know that any civilization that can step out of its home planet to launch an interstellar war has at least a powerful weapon that can destroy the ecology. Humans have powerful nuclear weapons that can cause the planet’s ecology to collapse hundreds of times. Similarly, the Martian civilization has a high probability of having such a powerful weapon. Once the final hit is fiery, it is possible to use the destructive ultimate weapon regardless of the consequences.
At that time, the ecology of both Mars and the earth will be completely finished, and there will be no intelligent civilization in the solar system from now on. Seeing this, we should feel very fortunate that although Mars was a beautiful ecological planet 4 billion years ago, early primitive life may have been born, but it did not grow up in the end.
The ecological collapse of Mars has turned it into a desolate desert planet, which has provided huge benefits for the future development of human civilization. We must know that every ecological planet is extraordinary. A beautiful planet like Mars, in addition to having excellent ecological restoration conditions, is more importantly a large amount of resources. We must know that relying on the resources of the earth is completely unable to satisfy the development of human beings towards the interstellar.
In the future, we will continue to transform Mars and make use of the abundant resources on Mars for continuous development, so that Mars will come to life again. Become a habitable planet, a large number of humans migrate to Mars, and Mars can also be used as an important transit station for humans to explore the more distant starry depths at the edge of the solar system.
