Humanity knows space more than the abyss! Everybody dreams to be in space to admire the magnificent view of earth, and other components in the universe. Astronauts are the most lucky who got the chance to be in space, the same space with full of mysteries!
Since pre-historic times, humans have always wanted to know what is in the sky. Cavemen at that time were puzzled, they were trying to find an answer, unfortunately we did not have the advanced technologies in that era like we have today! The urge to know what happened above the sky continued until humanity’s knowledge started growing, we started asking ourselves questions with unexplained answers. The truth with evidences were absolutely difficult to find, then came some early civilizations like the Mayans, Inca, the ancient Egyptians and so on, started observing, analyzing and studying space more than other mysteries. The Mayans were well-versed in astronomy, without forgetting their famous calendar, the Greek also studied space, the ancient Egyptians the same, and their life and works devoted in researching on space were extremely marvelous!
Time passed where finally a new advanced civilization formed, that is us, humans intelligence and knowledge continued expanding, today we have very advanced technologies, we invented gadgets to explore the space, telescopes, rockets, space agencies like NASA were created, man has landed on the moon, new discoveries have been made, Mars planet is being explored, new theories with proofs have been obtained, science has been our weapon to answer those unexplained questions which our early ancestors were trying hardly to find! And in this science revolution, we have successfully contradicted religious scriptures on space such as the world is not flat or has 6000 years old, or the sun rises from the east to set in the west, etc… Curiosity rover has landed on Mars in 2012, to explore the conditions on this planet, it is believed that the first extraterrestrial contact will be fully achieved within 20 years, other scientists believe the same. Many planets like Gliese have been discovered and said they can have life, new stars are being born, the list is so long to mention the number of explorations and discoveries has successfully achieved!
Science is still our dearest weapon but since when? Is science still that powerful so that in the future with the continuous growth of human intelligence, to answer the rest of the space mysteries? Has science reached its golden age? We are still a young civilization, we have a lot to discover, we have a lot to advance to answer unexplained things. What about the mysterious part of dark energy in the universe? Does dark energy exist or it is gravity which is acting in different ways? Will Higgs Boson answer our questions about the creation of universe and what happened before it or we will still need to think a ‘creator’ who created everything? Will we be in contact with Aliens or Aliens will contact us first? Will we have the chance to be on planets like Gliese which are hundreds of years of light far from us one day? Can we create a spacecraft which can travel faster than the speed of light? Can we colonize Mars or Moon? When we will successfully travel through time? When we will successfully know the mystery of black hole? There are not hundreds of questions, but thousands and thousands of questions which we ask everyday if one day we will find answers…
The most difficult questions relating to our life will be answered in universe! To unveil the secrets, more investments have to be done on research instead of wars. Science must be obligatory in schools and colleges. Children should have scientific knowledge since young age. All people should have the habit to think differently instead of being brainwashed and believe in fantasies. The more we believe in fantasies like the world is flat or the world is 6000 years old, we will not advance!
We still have a lot to grow, our civilization is only a drop of water in the ocean when it concerns the advancement of science and technologies, more research will have to take place, do not forget that even we know space at a greater percentage, other unsolved mysteries and studies have to increase particularly the deep-sea (Abyss).
