Some people once put forward the saying that “the earth is the cage of human beings”, but in the past hundred years, with their own strength, human beings have flown out of the earth and set foot on the moon. Now they are planning to land on Mars and focus on the solar system where the earth is located.
There is always a magic power in the solar system, which has been attracting us to continue to explore. Not to mention in front of the universe, even in front of the solar system, human existence is negligible.
Our understanding of the solar system only stays on the surface. We yearn for freedom and don’t like to be fettered.
Will humans eventually be trapped in the solar system? Do we have a chance to fly out of the solar system in the future?
Some people think that it is inevitable for human beings to fly out of the solar system. Although at the present level of science and technology, our understanding of the solar system is far from enough, we can be sure that we really see the solar system. Now that we know its existence, we will try our best to understand it and even make use of it. Believe that human ambition is immeasurable.
The space probe launched by human beings has made four small achievements: Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. On June 13, 1983, Pioneer 10 crossed the orbit of Neptune.
As we all know, Neptune is the farthest from the solar system among the eight major planets, but unfortunately, Pioneer 10 still hasn’t flown out of the Oort cloud surrounding the solar system.
Pioneer 11, launched on April 6, 1973, is the second space probe to study Jupiter and the outer solar system. It not only visited Jupiter, but also used Jupiter’s strong gravity to change its orbit and fly to Saturn. After approaching Saturn, it left the solar system along its escape orbit.
Voyager 1 was launched on September 5, 1977. On August 25, 2012, Voyager 1 became the world’s first space probe to cross the solar circle and enter the interstellar medium.
According to the data, as of October 23, 2019, Voyager 1 is 21.1 billion kilometers away from the sun. Voyager 2 is Voyager 1’s sister probe. On December 10, 2018, Voyager 2 has left the solar wind layer, becoming the second probe to enter interstellar space.
It has been more than 30 years since the detector flew out of the solar system. With the continuous development of science and technology, it will give mankind enough time to rush out of the solar system one day. Although it is impossible to achieve this goal in this century, it will be possible in the future.
Some people think that humans will never escape the solar system. They believe that, according to the calculation of the fastest aircraft of human beings, the speed can only reach 0.5% of the speed of light, and it will take at least 20000 years to fly out of the solar system!
If we have a chance to get to the edge of the solar system, it is difficult to get rid of the huge gravity of the solar system, which will make us spin blindly in the solar system.
If we can also get rid of the shackles of gravity, we are likely to enter the interstellar open space, where there is no gravity of any planet for us to use, just like the feeling of not reaching the village before, not reaching the shop behind, and this feeling will last for tens of thousands of years. Can human beings survive then?
The answer is No. So they think that human beings can’t fly out of the solar system, and will eventually be trapped in the solar system.
Xiaobian is optimistic. He believes that human beings will not be trapped in the solar system and will be able to go out one day. However, it is not easy to wait until this day, which will cost a lot. Driven by the future of science and technology, it’s not a small idea to break through time and space and go out.
Do you have any ideas about whether human beings will be trapped in the solar system? Welcome to comment area.
