The Mars Voyage
The journey begins when a team of young, enthusiastic and dedicated decides to take steps forward but the journey is not from one city to another, not from one state to another and neither from one country to other. It is from Earth to Mars. There would be other interplanetary journeys too.
This tale has several bumps that may seem long and are told in a manner that has fewer conversations but greater descriptions. It would be having a bunch of scientific concepts and would act as a fair substitution to common fairy-tale. The fiction focuses on the key roles played by a number of individuals to make Mars Terraforming successful and how they became legendary by their dedication to the project and be successful in aiding to the world.
A team from ISRO has been dreaming for an interplanetary voyage and for that dream they’ve been working research and development. The source of inspiration of the team is MOSSAD, MOSSAD is well known for its secret counterterrorism operations and gathering of information. Mossad’s former motto, “For by wise guidance you can wage your war” is a quote from the Holy Bible. The motto was later changed to another Proverb passage, “Where there is no guidance, a nation falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.”
The team took inspiration from Mossad to defeat enemies but here the enemies were not humans. Under the guidance of Astrophysicist Bhargav the team of space engineers is working and doing every possible thing for making Mars Voyage successful. By considering governmental issues we know that, it takes time to make things watertight but what if the entire system is corrupted? What if the roots are damaged? Actually, it needs a strong consolidation, strong workforce to place things in right manner. Will they succeed? Will they succeed in making their dream come true?
01. No Earth as home
January 17th, 2080. Sector 47, Indian Community, Mars, at 7:00am
Earth is not inhabitable anymore. After the alien invasion in 2060, earth is partially contaminated with radiations as we used Nuclear Weapons to win the war and as a result we did fall short in saving earth but we saved the humanity. It was on March 12th, 2025 a UFO was landed on earth and aliens came out of that, explored earth and went away. After few days it was observed that those extra terrestrials visited earth with a special purpose of discovery of existence of life and some other purposes that remained nameless till 2040.
Those aliens with whom we fought came here to win our earth as their planet was destroyed badly in core explosion. They were cruel and had dreadful purposes but then human race defeated them.
Most of the people are living on mars now. All countries fought against intergalactic aliens and thrashed them like anything. It is no surprise saying that, “Alien invasion brought us stand together”.
From the last 4 decades, Science and Technology have been approaching forward in sky-high manner. Teleportation, High-tech Mechanical armors for human and so many other fictions are not fictions anymore, yes! They have become facts now. The continuous research and development programs gave fruitful results and entire human race have touched several so called LIMITS those were next to impossible decades ago. Lack of conventional energy sources as like crude oil and fossil fuel coaxed us to invent new energy sources and as a result we started using pure and long lasting energy and it was nuclear energy in much modernized manner. We have made various devices that could control nuclear power as well as its extraction from its very small portion of radioactive elements like Thorium. As one knows Thorium is available in the outer coat of the earth in massive amount. Other Radio actives are used to propel spacecrafts for interplanetary voyages.
We have made power plants that were programmed to convert sea water in potable water and besides that extract consumable and pure energy that could power up vehicle called B-hydra. B-hydra is made in varieties as per its usage. B-hydra is a convertible and multipurpose vehicle that can carry from one to eight persons from here to there. The project B-hydra took almost 8 years for the development and then it has been released for common public. B-hydra could play roles of car, bike and aircraft as well. B-hydra itself is a revolutionary vehicle and moreover it is made in INDIA. Country wise varieties of B-hydra are available now. Russia and Germany have also contributed in its design and development but the core ideas have been developed by Indian Engineers.
After many years of continuous efforts of Astrophysicist Bhargav from ISRO, technical students realized the value of their own country INDIA and they started dedicating their precious knowledge to it by choosing various research organizations PRL, BARC and ISRO etc as their research field. Finally because of all these, the rate of Brain Drain decreased. Gradually, India has become a leading country in space science and nuclear science as well. Besides these all, after much more trouble Switzerland’s Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN) have succeeded in making a sufficient amount of antimatter that can be used as a pure, pollution free and enormous energy source. We have started using it in various manners.
