Has Economic Isolation Preserved Cuba’s Stunning Coral Reefs?

Buck Rogers, Staff WriterThe isolation of Cuba from world economy has meant that the Cuban economy has not been as influenced by global corporations and governments as most other modern nations have. The country is a bit “behind the times” when it comes to cars, industry, technology, and basically all of the luxuries that we consider necessities in the typical consumer lifestyle of the 21st century. As a result, not only are the Cuban people seemingly [...]

The New American Dream ~ The Case for Colonizing Mars




Excerpt from Ad Astra

by Robert Zubrin


Mars Is The New World

Among extraterrestrial bodies in our solar system, Mars is singular in that it possesses all the raw materials required to support not only life, but a new branch of human civilization. This uniqueness is illustrated most clearly if we contrast Mars with the Earth's Moon, the most frequently cited alternative location for extraterrestrial human colonization.

In contrast to the Moon, Mars is rich in carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen, all in biologically readily accessible forms such as carbon dioxide gas, nitrogen gas, and water ice and permafrost. Carbon, nitrogen, and hydrogen are only present on the Moon in parts per million quantities, much like gold in seawater. Oxygen is abundant on the Moon, but only in tightly bound oxides such as silicon dioxide (SiO2), ferrous oxide (Fe2O3), magnesium oxide (MgO), and aluminum oxide (Al2O3), which require very high energy processes to reduce.

The Moon is also deficient in about half the metals of interest to industrial society (copper, for example), as well as many other elements of interest such as sulfur and phosphorus. Mars has every required element in abundance. Moreover, on Mars, as on Earth, hydrologic and volcanic processes have occurred that are likely to have consolidated various elements into local concentrations of high-grade mineral ore. Indeed, the geologic history of Mars has been compared to that of Africa, with very optimistic inferences as to its mineral wealth implied as a corollary. In contrast, the Moon has had virtually no history of water or volcanic action, with the result that it is basically composed of trash rocks with very little differentiation into ores that represent useful concentrations of anything interesting.

You can generate power on either the Moon or Mars with solar panels, and here the advantages of the Moon's clearer skies and closer proximity to the Sun than Mars roughly balances the disadvantage of large energy storage requirements created by the Moon's 28-day light-dark cycle. But if you wish to manufacture solar panels, so as to create a self-expanding power base, Mars holds an enormous advantage, as only Mars possesses the large supplies of carbon and hydrogen needed to produce the pure silicon required for producing photovoltaic panels and other electronics. In addition, Mars has the potential for wind-generated power while the Moon clearly does not. But both solar and wind offer relatively modest power potential — tens or at most hundreds of kilowatts here or there. To create a vibrant civilization you need a richer power base, and this Mars has both in the short and medium term in the form of its geothermal power resources, which offer potential for large numbers of locally created electricity generating stations in the 10 MW (10,000 kilowatt) class. In the long-term, Mars will enjoy a power-rich economy based upon exploitation of its large domestic resources of deuterium fuel for fusion reactors. Deuterium is five times more common on Mars than it is on Earth, and tens of thousands of times more common on Mars than on the Moon.

But the biggest problem with the Moon, as with all other airless planetary bodies and proposed artificial free-space colonies, is that sunlight is not available in a form useful for growing crops. A single acre of plants on Earth requires four megawatts of sunlight power, a square kilometer needs 1,000 MW. The entire world put together does not produce enough electrical power to illuminate the farms of the state of Rhode Island, that agricultural giant. Growing crops with electrically generated light is just economically hopeless. But you can't use natural sunlight on the Moon or any other airless body in space unless you put walls on the greenhouse thick enough to shield out solar flares, a requirement that enormously increases the expense of creating cropland. Even if you did that, it wouldn't do you any good on the Moon, because plants won't grow in a light/dark cycle lasting 28 days.

But on Mars there is an atmosphere thick enough to protect crops grown on the surface from solar flare. Therefore, thin-walled inflatable plastic greenhouses protected by unpressurized UV-resistant hard-plastic shield domes can be used to rapidly create cropland on the surface. Even without the problems of solar flares and month-long diurnal cycle, such simple greenhouses would be impractical on the Moon as they would create unbearably high temperatures. On Mars, in contrast, the strong greenhouse effect created by such domes would be precisely what is necessary to produce a temperate climate inside. Such domes up to 50 meters in diameter are light enough to be transported from Earth initially, and later on they can be manufactured on Mars out of indigenous materials. Because all the resources to make plastics exist on Mars, networks of such 50- to 100-meter domes could be rapidly manufactured and deployed, opening up large areas of the surface to both shirtsleeve human habitation and agriculture. That's just the beginning, because it will eventually be possible for humans to substantially thicken Mars' atmosphere by forcing the regolith to outgas its contents through a deliberate program of artificially induced global warming. Once that has been accomplished, the habitation domes could be virtually any size, as they would not have to sustain a pressure differential between their interior and exterior. In fact, once that has been done, it will be possible to raise specially bred crops outside the domes.

The point to be made is that unlike colonists on any known extraterrestrial body, Martian colonists will be able to live on the surface, not in tunnels, and move about freely and grow crops in the light of day. Mars is a place where humans can live and multiply to large numbers, supporting themselves with products of every description made out of indigenous materials. Mars is thus a place where an actual civilization, not just a mining or scientific outpost, can be developed. And significantly for interplanetary commerce, Mars and Earth are the only two locations in the solar system where humans will be able to grow crops for export.

Interplanetary Commerce

Mars is the best target for colonization in the solar system because it has by far the greatest potential for self-sufficiency. Nevertheless, even with optimistic extrapolation of robotic manufacturing techniques, Mars will not have the division of labor required to make it fully self-sufficient until its population numbers in the millions. Thus, for decades and perhaps longer, it will be necessary, and forever desirable, for Mars to be able to import specialized manufactured goods from Earth. These goods can be fairly limited in mass, as only small portions (by weight) of even very high-tech goods are actually complex. Nevertheless, these smaller sophisticated items will have to be paid for, and the high costs of Earth-launch and interplanetary transport will greatly increase their price. What can Mars possibly export back to Earth in return?
It is this question that has caused many to incorrectly deem Mars colonization intractable, or at least inferior in prospect to the Moon.

For example, much has been made of the fact that the Moon has indigenous supplies of helium-3, an isotope not found on Earth and which could be of considerable value as a fuel for second generation thermonuclear fusion reactors. Mars has no known helium-3 resources. On the other hand, because of its complex geologic history, Mars may have concentrated mineral ores, with much greater concentrations of precious metal ores readily available than is currently the case on Earth — because the terrestrial ores have been heavily scavenged by humans for the past 5,000 years. If concentrated supplies of metals of equal or greater value than silver (such as germanium, hafnium, lanthanum, cerium, rhenium, samarium, gallium, gadolinium, gold, palladium, iridium, rubidium, platinum, rhodium, europium, and a host of others) were available on Mars, they could potentially be transported back to Earth for a substantial profit. Reusable Mars-surface based single-stage-to-orbit vehicles would haul cargoes to Mars orbit for transportation to Earth via either cheap expendable chemical stages manufactured on Mars or reusable cycling solar or magnetic sail-powered interplanetary spacecraft. The existence of such Martian precious metal ores, however, is still hypothetical.

But there is one commercial resource that is known to exist ubiquitously on Mars in large amount — deuterium. Deuterium, the heavy isotope of hydrogen, occurs as 166 out of every million hydrogen atoms on Earth, but comprises 833 out of every million hydrogen atoms on Mars. Deuterium is the key fuel not only for both first and second generation fusion reactors, but it is also an essential material needed by the nuclear power industry today. Even with cheap power, deuterium is very expensive; its current market value on Earth is about $10,000 per kilogram, roughly fifty times as valuable as silver or 70% as valuable as gold. This is in today's pre-fusion economy. Once fusion reactors go into widespread use deuterium prices will increase. All the in-situ chemical processes required to produce the fuel, oxygen, and plastics necessary to run a Mars settlement require water electrolysis as an intermediate step. As a by product of these operations, millions, perhaps billions, of dollars worth of deuterium will be produced.

Ideas may be another possible export for Martian colonists. Just as the labor shortage prevalent in colonial and nineteenth century America drove the creation of "Yankee ingenuity's" flood of inventions, so the conditions of extreme labor shortage combined with a technological culture that shuns impractical legislative constraints against innovation will tend to drive Martian ingenuity to produce wave after wave of invention in energy production, automation and robotics, biotechnology, and other areas. These inventions, licensed on Earth, could finance Mars even as they revolutionize and advance terrestrial living standards as forcefully as nineteenth century American invention changed Europe and ultimately the rest of the world as well.

Inventions produced as a matter of necessity by a practical intellectual culture stressed by frontier conditions can make Mars rich, but invention and direct export to Earth are not the only ways that Martians will be able to make a fortune. The other route is via trade to the asteroid belt, the band of small, mineral-rich bodies lying between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. There are about 5,000 asteroids known today, of which about 98% are in the "Main Belt" lying between Mars and Jupiter, with an average distance from the Sun of about 2.7 astronomical units, or AU. (The Earth is 1.0 AU from the Sun.) Of the remaining two percent known as the near-Earth asteroids, about 90% orbit closer to Mars than to the Earth. Collectively, these asteroids represent an enormous stockpile of mineral wealth in the form of platinum group and other valuable metals.


Historical Analogies

The primary analogy I wish to draw is that Mars is to the new age of exploration as North America was to the last. The Earth's Moon, close to the metropolitan planet but impoverished in resources, compares to Greenland. Other destinations, such as the Main Belt asteroids, may be rich in potential future exports to Earth but lack the preconditions for the creation of a fully developed indigenous society; these compare to the West Indies. Only Mars has the full set of resources required to develop a native civilization, and only Mars is a viable target for true colonization. Like America in its relationship to Britain and the West Indies, Mars has a positional advantage that will allow it to participate in a useful way to support extractive activities on behalf of Earth in the asteroid belt and elsewhere.

But despite the shortsighted calculations of eighteenth-century European statesmen and financiers, the true value of America never was as a logistical support base for West Indies sugar and spice trade, inland fur trade, or as a potential market for manufactured goods. The true value of America was as the future home for a new branch of human civilization, one that as a combined result of its humanistic antecedents and its frontier conditions was able to develop into the most powerful engine for human progress and economic growth the world had ever seen. The wealth of America was in fact that she could support people, and that the right kind of people chose to go to her. People create wealth. People are wealth and power. Every feature of Frontier American life that acted to create a practical can-do culture of innovating people will apply to Mars a hundred-fold.

Mars is a harsher place than any on Earth. But provided one can survive the regimen, it is the toughest schools that are the best. The Martians shall do well.

Day 9 – The Dance

There is an embedded video in the original post at heroesofthenow.com .  I choose to know how to embed them here, but until I do there is a sweet video of world class foxtrot...  Thanks for participating...  Love and Kindness, Marc

Life is a dance.  There is rhythm and movement aligned to the energy of Creation.  When we are clear and present, we are better able to ‘feel’ the beat; better able to align our movement to it.  In ballroom dance, the lead comes from the heart.  Proper frame places the heart in front of the head, symbolizing something very important, not to mention physically placing the organ out in front…  The hearts electromagnetic energy field is the largest of the human body, extending some several feet out in all directions.  When our hearts are full and vibrant, resonant to the rhythm of the Universe we lead with our authentic beings, just as in the dance.

There is much to be learned from Ballroom Dance.  The earliest known dances were “waltz-like” and the waltz itself came out of Vienna in the late 1600’s to early 1700’s.  The movement progressive and spiraling in nature reminds me of the fractals shown in the video.  More research to be done on Ballroom Dance and Fractals…  Any readers out there with insight, please comment.

Ballroom dancing brings about a connection to Creation energy like no other practice I have done before.  The dance inspires movement and rhythm, it creates energetic alignments in the body and brings one to their sovereignty, while in unity with another. Dance is an expression of Creation…

Today in your practice bring about an awareness to rhythm.  Connect to your heart.  Draw your shoulder blades back and down and feel your chest expand and allow your heart to lead.  Feel the vibrations of the Universe, pulsing through your heart.  Find the beat…

Life is the Dance.  We create our music when we connect to our heart.  We dance as we move through life experience with grace.  Look at the Waltz or the Foxtrot and notice the grace with which the dancers move across the floor.

video

If we all were inspired to move with such grace through our life experiences, perhaps the world would be a different place…

Right now connect with the rhythm and begin your dance.  Share the Love that you are with grace as you progress through the dance, through life…

Celebrate and create Joy today.  Inspire with grace.  Share Love and Kindness. Move with purposeful intent, just as dancers do, Just as you do…

Do the work and discover yourself, discover that inner partner that balances the outer and Dance…

Love and Kindness and

Blessings on your Journey,

Marc

Day 7 – True Nature

Hi, Blessings on your Journey Brothers and Sisters...  I was unable to post the links to the videos at the end of this post.  They are with the original post at heroesofthenow.com...  And they are really awesome.  Check em out... Maybe Dre can get 'em linked up...  thanks Dre, if you do...  Marc 

I am Love and Kindness, I feel Love and Kindness, I share Love and Kindness, I Love myself completely, I Love all that I am, I Love all Creation.

Look at the Natural world around you.  The animals, birds, trees and stones, all of creation in the Natural world provides the clue.  Look around and see what is happening in the Natural world.  There is only joy, only celebration.  Only Love.  The Natural world shows us our True Nature if we let it.  We are part of that Natural world, but over 1000’s of years we have disconnected from this.  Humanity has come to be the conqueror of Nature, placing ourselves at the top of the chain, very much a domineering force.

We have done innumerable wrongs to our Mother Earth, to the Natural world with our influence.  We have come to a place in time, where the Natural World is suffering and trying to heal.  Our Earth Mother needs to heal and she is.  Many of the Wisdom Keepers are trying to communicate this at this time.  Humanity has been dominating and attempting to control Nature and it hurts all involved.

Today in our practice we go deeper.  We take total personal responsibility and cancel contracts, etc.  We get into our breath and find our center.  We are grateful.  And as this all sinks deeper into our being we can begin to see.  There is a glimmer there, at the core of our beings.  The light, we are aware of it, but perhaps unsure.  In our quest to remember, this is a very important stage.

Here we must start to remember that we always have been a part of the Natural World.  We are no different than the birds singing to me right now through my window.  They are singing a celebration song to the rising sun, happy, joyous, free and filled with Love and Gratitude.  Do you celebrate the dawn of a new day so fully?  What about the spring blooms?  Do the flowers have an agenda, are they trying to conquer anything by rising up out of the ground and doing what comes Naturally?  No, they just do what is natural, growing towards the sun, blooming vibrant beautiful flowers that attract other collaborators within the web of life.  They are a pure expression of Love.  They are in their Nature.

So, today on this seventh day, a number of spiritual significance, we look for our True Nature.  It is right here  all around us if we drop all constructs and allow the Truth to shine bright.  Our True Nature is that of Love and Kindness.  All else is an illusion created over time to keep us from seeing.  We created it with the collective consciousness, it is what it is and now it is crumbling.

When we embrace our True Nature, we can see it much more clearly.  I am Love and Kindness and I take total personal responsibility for all my thoughts, words and actions. Anything that I experience or promote through action, thoughts and words that is other than Love and Kindness is part of the illusion.

How do you feel right now?  What kind of experience are you having?  How does your body feel?  Where is your mind and what is it doing?  Journal about these topics.  Explore.  Go deeper and deeper into your being, into your sub-consciousness and shine the illuminating light of consciousness into the shadow places.  What does Love and Kindness mean to you?  Write a mini-essay on this topic for yourself and only yourself.  Make some time today to explore this notion and see if it works for you.  Ask the question… What is my True Nature.  Strip away all the fear, greed, anger, hatred, self-doubt, competition… remove all obstacles from the path and search the depths of your being for the Truth.  How do you feel?

I have come to experience that my True Nature is that of Love and Kindness.  I have seen where I have come off that path and gone against Creation, against my True Nature and have recognized it to be the source of my pain and suffering in those times.  With a deep experience of gratitude, I humbly submit to my True Nature.

  • I am Love and Kindness
  • I feel Love and Kindness
  • I share Love and Kindness
  • I Love myself completely
  • I Love all that I am
  • I Love all Creation.

Check out this 2 part video.  Watch it several times if you are so inclined, there is much wisdom shared.  Find yourself, find your Nature.  Embrace the vibrations of the Universe… Love.

Blessings on your Journey…

Love and Kindness,

Marc

Day 5 – Stand on the Earth

 Here is Day 5...  If your are ready for more, follow the link at the end of the post to come to heroesofthenow.com for days 6 and 7...  Blessings on your Journey.  Marc

 Wow, here we are already 5 days into this wonderful Journey, with incredible insight and discovery.  As you can see this practice is somewhat cumulative in nature often being described as peeling the layers of the onion we dig deeper every moment.  Each of our previous days experience becomes foundation for the moment at hand.  We are in the process of re-training ourselves to ’see’ differently as many have been conditioned to see what the governing society wants us to see.  It is an illusion and as we begin to peel away the layers to reveal more information a new world opens to us… We must let it, to be sure… We must want it from the depth of our beings.  It is a commitment to ourselves and we continue now.

Come into your awareness, the practice, right now however you are.  Bring yourself to this present moment and begin to breathe consciously.  Take total personal responsibility and cancel contracts, etc and give yourself some time to meditate.  Find your center, that radiant core from which your being moves with Divine purpose.  Bring all of your awareness to right now, notice all of your surroundings… Open your eyes and look around.  What do you see?  Where are you? at work, the office, at the airport?  How close are you to our Mother Earth?  Are you standing on her now?  Are you grounded?

Write in your journal the sensations you are experiencing now.  Focus your awareness to how grounded you feel.  Allow that to hold whatever meaning it does for you and describe your sensations.  Just open the floodgates and let that pen float across the page or your fingertips fly across the keyboard.  Write it out, now while it is fresh in your experience.

I remember when I was working at a large government office, often I would enter the building at 5:00 am and never touch the Earth for the next 10 hours…  Sure there were windows, but I was inside with all that energy, all those vibrations and no way to ground out and reconnect with the vibrations of our Earth Mother.  When I did go outside, I was completely unaware of any natural surroundings as often I carried the issues from inside to out.  Is this your experience?

After you have finished your journaling, step outside and onto the Earth.  Stand barefoot on the ground if you can and close your eyes.  Align your body comfortably and relax… draw your shoulder blades back and align your center axis. Breathe.  Feel a connection to the Mother extending beyond your feet… roots, energetic roots that go deep, down and into the core of our beautiful planet, our home.  Feel those roots strengthen and grow, allowing energy to exchange between you and Earth’s core.  Feel the vibration of the Universe flowing through her, aligning your vibrations with it.  Allow any negative energies, dark or shadow thoughts and emotions to drain out those roots.  With conscious effortless effort ‘push’ those things you wish to leave out through your roots and allow them to dissipate into the ground…

Open your eyes and notice what you feel.  Look around you for natural Earth relations.  Look for the birds and trees, the grass and flowers.  Hear the freedom songs the birds are singing, inhale the life energy or prana and feel it’s tingle on your skin… Open your nostrils and smell deeply for the purity of the life’s breath.  Find a tree and place your hands on it’s skin… Feel the life energy flowing through this magnificent creation, feel your connection to it.  Look at it’s leaves, introduce yourself…  This tree is your brother or sister, it is part of all creation and perfect in it’s nature.  Find a stone and see it’s elderly wisdom, pick it up and hold it close to your heart.

Today, connect with the Earth.  Share it’s strength and power, feel her pulsing, vibrant and alive with the natural vibrations of the Universe.  This is our home, this planet we stand on.  Root deeply into this awareness.  See all the Earth relations with new sight.  Do the flowers strive to be any more than they are, beauty in the moment… Are the birds singing songs of gossip or ballads of despair?   Does water flow uphill?  Look around and take notice of things you may never have actually been aware of.

Presence yourself in nature today and stand effortlessly and gracefully on your Mother Earth.  Write about this experience on a new page of your journal.  Notice your sensations and thoughts, your clarity and peace of mind.  Do you feel different than before?  Did you feel the release or grounding?  Allow yourself to really explore your experience and share if you are so inclined.

Any time you may be feeling a little off, return to your home… Stand on the Earth and ground…

Love and Kindness,

Marc
