NASA to find God in our Solar System

NASA to find God in our Solar System Clapway

Governments, academics, and scientists may differ in many trains of, thought, but they can all agree there’s one major obstacle standing between us and exploring our solar system. Developing advanced propulsion technology has always been an issue here on Earth, however, NASA has started to address that. They have begun testing a new system that could get a spacecraft further than ever before. Will this lead to finding proof of God, or lack thereof?


The secrets for NASA to travel beyond our solar system lie in a region of space called the heliosphere. The heliosphere is an area dominated by the sun. Here, protons and electrons are released at extremely high speeds. Previously, NASA has tried to develop a spacecraft propulsion system using sheer power, but now it might be possible to make one without propellants at all. To do this, the agency will need to harness these 400-750 kilometers per second wind speeds. Like a sailboat for space, the system will use an E-Sail that takes advantage of theses protons released from the sun in order to propel the spacecraft throughout our solar system and beyond.


At first glance, a giant space sail sounds simple, however, it’s everything but.  About 10-20 electrically charged aluminum wires will protrude outwardly from the center of the spacecraft in order to make a circular sail. Each of these wires is only 1-millimeter thick and 12 and a half miles long. That’s like a paper clip the length of 219 football fields. Using those aforementioned protons, the E-Sail will use electrostatic energy to push them away. The photos will be deflected by the wires and they will be positively charged. For those familiar with the physical exchange of momentum that means thrust for the spacecraft. From there centrifugal force pulls the wires into place as the spacecraft shoots through our solar system at one revolution per hour.


NASA has admitted that this technology is at least a decade away. To send something like that through our solar system, understandably requires a good deal of testing. When it finally is released, however, it may provide answers to some of mankinds biggest questions. God and science have always butted heads, but since there is a lack of proof on both ends, the argument for his existence continues. However, this is changing. Science is delivering more and more proof of how we came to be. Interestingly enough, it looks to contradict many God theories. Evidence on the religious side of things, though, hasn’t changed since it’s creation. The further that NASA can go into space, the more data they will gather about our universe. Perhaps they will find God out there amongst the stars. Another possibility may be  finding proof that God never existed in the first place.
