Our Future on Mars

General Purpose: To inform

Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about our future on Mars

Thesis Statement: Knowing, in depth, about the Mars missions, how we are possibly planning on terraforming the planet, and our ultimate future on Mars, can open your mind to the possibilities that are out there for humanity.

Introduction

I. We will have to leave Earth one day. The only home weve ever known.

II. My name is Daniel Beheshti and I will be instructing you all about our future Mars.

III. I am a world renowned Astrophysicist. Graduated from UC Berkeley with PhD.

IV. We will be going over the Mars missions, how we are developing ways of terraforming Mars, and our overall future on the planet, re-cap, Q & A

(Now, lets learn about the Mars Mission)

Body

I. Mars Missions

A. The crew will be designed a rocket by a manufacturer, and be sent into orbit. There will be six groups of four astronauts who will be sent over to Mars, in 2024.

B. NASA will also be sending more and more people following the Mars One mission, starting in 2026.

(Next, lets talk about possibly transforming Mars into a habitable zone.)

II. Terraforming

A. DARPA is creating organisms that will be able to sustain life, and further the life, over time.




B. Essentially, we are picking and choosing the best genes from whatever forms of life, and creating something entirely new.

(I think wed all like to know our future on the planet.)

III. Our Future

A. The lack of a magnetic field on Mars is the real problem. Radiation finds its way onto the surface, harming anything in sight.

B. We are on path to becoming a multi-planet species. Earth will, one day, be so disastrous, if a meteor or some natural occurrence has not claimed us. Humanity has a long way to go.

(I hope I have enlightened all of you on some of the really interesting plans being made at the moment.)

Conclusion

I. Knowing, in depth, about the Mars missions, how we are possibly planning on terraforming the planet, and our ultimate future on Mars, can open your mind to the possibilities that are out there for humanity.

II. We have gone over what they are planning to accomplish when they get there, how life would be able to grow on the planet, and how our species will comply when it is tested.

III. Maybe leaving Earth is for the best. We were brought up on this planet, but there is so much out there. Id say theres almost too much, really. Maybe, this will be the start of some new Star Trek space traveling species.
