Journey to Planet Mars: The Obstacles Elon Musk Must Overcome to Realize his Plan

For a long time now, life on a different planet other than Earth has only been what the Silver Screens, science fiction books and comic strips can offer. But Alas! Finally, that dream of invading one of the habitable planets and probably start life a fresh- planet Mars, is almost coming to a reality, thanks to Elon Musk’s plan. As the current Chief of Executive of SpaceX, Tesla and SolarCity, he has formulated a plan to transport at least 1000 people per launch and 100 per rocket to mars. The plan also targets at least one million people by the end of first round of the trips. It sounds like a brilliant idea, right? Well, it would be, but Musk will have to overcome a few obstacles before starting life on Mars.


Every project requires a certain amount of funds to run, but project “Colonize Planet Mars” is not the regular level of projects that need a few millions of dollars. SpaceX, a Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, an aerospace manufacturer, and space transport services Company, has estimated the total cost to Musk’s plan to be a whopping 10 billion dollars. That figure is also what Musk himself has declared to be a main challenge for his endeavor.

In sacrificial efforts, but which can only be compared to a drop in the ocean, SpaceX has devoted nearly 5%, which amounts to several tens of millions of dollars, of its assets to the interplanetary transport system. Considering also that the Congress is yet to pledge any funding to this project, it is unclear how Musk will mobilize funding to the project.

Giant Rockets Needed

To transport at least 100 people per spaceship, an ideal rocket booster size will have to measure about 254 feet tall and 39 feet in diameter. That size, combined with a nearly 400 feet tall spaceship, would appear as a giant to the revered Saturn V. But that is not the problem, as it has not been determined how that machine will be airlifted from the ground. Estimated to require four times as much thrust as that of the biggest rocket that ever existed- the Saturn V, critical speculations have that it will be too big a challenge for Musk to sustain.

Safety during Transportation and on Mars

Considering it is a bigger and never-before venture, it is still questionable how the safety of the 100 people in every rocket will be maintained, and how they will be protected from the higher radiation on Mars. Although Musk has proposed some system of shielding using artificial magnetic field, it is not yet clear how he will go about that, at least within the shortest time.

Manufacturing Plants in Mars?

Well, Musk could not only be the man behind the company that explores the highest places, he also happens to be the person having the highest level of imagination. His idea to make the transportation efficient by setting a carbon dioxide and oxygen liquid plant in Mars to provide alternative energy for the rocket engines is sure one of those. However, Musk is yet to explain in detail how that plant will be established, and most importantly, where it will obtain some of its vital resources, such as water, which is rare in Mars and only exists as ice, not forgetting the process of converting that into fuel.

Cool Gadgets You Should Take During Your Next Travels

Traveling can be a fun time if you are prepared. From packing your clothes to boarding your plane or bus you need to account for everything that could go wrong and right. But do not forget to pack gadgets that can make your traveling life easier and more fun.


Modobag is hand luggage that you sit on and drive through the airport or in the town instead of walking. If you do not want to drive it you can still use it like any other, normal hand luggage but after a long day of traveling and you still have one more stop to go to you can take a seat on your Modobag and drive it to your next location.

It is designed to give your legs a rest as well as to decrease walking time but you can still squeeze in a bit of exercise if you want because it is changeable. Alternately you can just use it as a comfortable chair while you wait for your plane to board/ arrive. It has side pockets to quickly access your passport and other important documents or to keep your tablet, phone to listen to music. It may be experience but it offers a lot and you can view it as an investment.

Iain Sinclair Cardsharp Credit Card Sized Folding Knives

Many people like to have Swiss Army Knives in case they need to cut something or to do other things such as opening a bottle etc. Although a credit card sized folding knife does not have as many features as a Swiss Army Knife it is still a useful gadget to have because not everyone uses all the features of a Swiss Army Knife so it is pointless to carry it around if you only use the knife feature. And since it is the size of a card it can easily fit inside your wallet or pocket. The blade pops out instead of slides out like a Swiss Army Knife but a cardsharp comes with a child-proof resistant lock.

ThermaCell Rechargeable Heated Insole

If you are one of the many people whose feet get cold during air or bus travel then I would suggest in buying a pair of rechargeable heat insoles. These can slide into any type of foot wear and come with a charger so you can charge them while you are sleeping, showering or do not need to wear them. They would be great for skiing and snow hikes plus you never have to take them off. They come with a remote control that has three settings on it. �High’ for walking in the snow, �low’ for just a cold day or while you are traveling on the plane or bus and �no heat’ the reason why you never need to take them off because you can switch off the heat.

Cool gadgets are fun and some of them can be very useful while you are traveling, but look and shop around for interesting ones that are coming out and think what you could benefit you the most.

8 Cool Tech Gadgets You Don’t Know About

5 Accessories For Traveling That Make It Easy To Carry Gadgets And Everything

There are so many things about traveling that can cause stress, which sometimes we wonder why we bother leaving the house at all. For one thing, there’s the packing. Stressing about whether or not there’s room in your suitcase for everything you need on your trip can be a real headache – and if you go over your baggage weight limit, you’ll either have to pay the airline an overabundance baggage expense, or leave a couple of things behind.

Some excellent travel gadgets and accessories can significantly reduce the stress of going on a trip. Taking the right travel accessories with you can make your trip easier, less complex, comfortable too and help you have a happier holiday.

1) Travel Steamer.

Regardless of how you pack, wrinkles happen. When you want to look great, a travel steamer can alter the situation, rapidly remove stubborn, packed-in wrinkles without harming fabrics. A good travel-specific model, for example, Travelon will minimize the space and weight it takes in your luggage.

2) Earplugs.

I never go anywhere without earplugs. Whether you’re on the plane, or in a hotel room, earplugs that block out unfamiliar noises can give you the sleep you need. Foam earplugs are easy to use and surprisingly comfortable and effective they compress to half their size for easy insertion, and then slowly expand to block out noise. Hearos is a good brand that provides 33 dB of noise reduction (the highest available).

3). Travel Charger Adapter

If you rely on cell phones and other gadgets to stay in touch while traveling, the Travel Charger Adapter is probably the most useful travel gadget you will ever own.

The Travel Charger Adaptor combines adapters suitable for use throughout Europe, North America, Africa, Australasia and the Far East, as well as featuring a handy USB control socket for charging MP3 players and other gadgets that you would normally charge through your computer.

4). Trace Me Luggage Tag

One of the things most likely to spoil your holiday is losing your luggage. Spending your entire trip wearing just the clothes you arrived in is painful enough, but knowing you’ll never see your precious suitcase contents again is deeply distressing.

With the Trace Me Luggage Tag, you can greatly reduce the chances of losing your luggage forever. The Trace Me Luggage Tag is strong and durable and contains an individual serial number and 2D bar code, linked for life to your registration details on a secure data storage system used by law enforcement agencies, airport baggage handling organizations and lost property administrations worldwide.

If your luggage goes astray, a straightforward scan of the Trace Me Luggage Tag will identify it as your property. Registering your Trace Me Luggage Tag is brisk and easy to do online, and there are no recurring expenses or subscription charges.

5) Packable Tote Bag.

Plastic shopping bags are ubiquitous in the US (though being phased out in places), but other countries don’t always provide them, or charge extra. Be prepared, and be environmentally friendly too, by bringing your packable tote bag. Tiny when folded, you’ll always have a bag at the ready to hold all your purchases.

6 Cool Phone Hacks You Did not Know

It is virtually impossible to study all the features of your phone, some you will never know about in the entire life of your device, whether Android or an iPhone. I have 3 cool phone hacks for each type for both operating systems.

Three Cool Phone Hacks on Android

1. Remotely Lock your Phone

If you ever lose your phone, the Android Device Manager,available on Google Play, allows you to remotely lock the phone and erase all the data in the phone by remotely performing a Factory Reset.

All you need to do is activate the Device Administrator Settings which allows Android Google Play services to erase all data on the phone, change the screen lock ,and lock the screen.

2. Remotely Control Your Desktop Computer

Control your desktop from anywhere using your Android. You only need to install the Chrome Remote Desktop App on your desktop first and follow the prompts in the interface which will also require you to give permission to your Android device and to create a 6-digt PIN to be used later by the phone, where you will also need to install the software.

Installing the software is even more straightforward on the Android device. Follow all the prompts and enter the PIN you had earlier created on the desktop. Once the app is operational you can now operate your desktop remotely from anywhere.

3. Bypass your Security Code While in a Trusted Location

You can de-activate your security code whenever you are in specified, trusted locations. Therefore, anyone can access your phone without the need for a security code. Obviously, care must be taken to ensure that this feature is not activated in public places.

To activate the feature, go to “Smart Lock” under “Security Settings.”

Under “Smart Lock” you will then be required to specify your “Trusted Places,” which can be home or any other place you deem fit.
Three Cool Phone Hacks on iPhone
1. Etch-a-Sketch
Your iPhone can actually mimic an Etch-a-Sketch. All you have to do is shake the phone whenever you make a typing error and the screen will clear and allow you to start all over again.

This is a useful hack for those who hate the dexterous operations required to operate the “erase” tab. And it doesn’t stop at text only, the feature can also be used while editing pictures.

2. Charge Batteries Faster in Airplane ModeSwitch your phone to Airplane Mode and it will charge faster.

Because in the Airplane Mode all the background processes that consume power, including all radio-related operations, such as GPS and internet, will be off.

The difference in charging is not day-and-night, but it can shave off some minutes especially when you need to leave in a hurry. Remember not to check the charging process often as the screen background light consumes considerable power too.

3. Invert Display Colors at Night

Love browsing late at night while in bed? Do you wake up your spouse because of the bright light? Simple. Invert the iPhone display colors and you will not have to worry about the light. The text will be lighter than the background and this will be less invasive in the dark.

How Protective Accessories Can Prolong the Life of Your iPad

No matter how sturdy, versatile or perfectly protected your iPad is, the risk of getting it damaged beyond repair with a single drop on a hard surface still exists. If you want to protect your valuable electronic companion from unfortunate accidents, unnecessary bumps and scratches, consider buying a protective case for it. There are attractive and fun designs on the market to choose from and all of these accessories can keep your pricey gadget safe from harm at all times.

Here are some of the most important benefits you will enjoy through the selection of protective iPad accessories.

The main advantage of iPad covers and cases is the ability to protect your expensive device from damage caused by falls, scrapes or knocks. Because of the wide range of shock absorbing materials used in case manufacturing, these accessories offer high level of defense against damages that can potentially render your tablet unusable.

Statistics show that buyers who have purchased protective iPad cases experience fewer problems resulting from accidental damage. These statistics prove the fact that investing in a high-quality casing is one of the best ways to prolong the life of your favorite device.

While covers protect the front of your tablet, cases have the added benefit of covering its sides and back, as well.

Besides protecting your tablet from accidental damage, high-end iPad cases provide great functionality and various useful features that can increase the value of your electronics. And who doesn’t love having an extra functionality added to their favorite gadgets, right?

While back in the day most case models were designed in a way that prevented the user from utilizing some of the tablet features unless the case was removed, today, the picture is completely different. Most iPad case manufacturers focus their efforts on making protective accessories that allow you to use all functions, as well as to take advantage of new ones.

Some iPad covers come with a physical keyboard that transforms your tablet into a handy notebook. Others provide holders that, when folded, turn into a convenient stand for your tablet. The list goes on and on.

Protective casing also allows you to customize your tablet, making it stand out from the crowd. If you’re looking for ways to tweak the design of your iPad to reflect your personality or to just change its default look, casing is the way to go. Thousands of different designs are available for you to choose among, which gives you incredible self-expression opportunities.

Selecting the right iPad cover may be a confusing and time consuming task, especially with all the shells, sleeves, play-through cases and flip-style covers available on the market. When shopping for protective casing, remember that choosing the cheapest or most expensive model is not necessarily your best bet. Look for an accessory that provides good protection, looks and functionality at a reasonable price.
