MOOP on Mars??

Talk about your camp or project's LNT plans (and MOOP problems) here. Discuss cleanup tips. Ask questions or share ideas on what works and what doesn't.

MOOP on Mars??

Post by Rice » Thu Oct 11, 2012 11:01 am

I wonder if NASA has considered that it needs a MOOP plan??

Really? NASA can do better than this...

I am for the exploration of Space, but it seems no matter what we do -- we are polluting. {sigh}

It's our destiny to ruin everything we touch.

If you ask me, every aspect of the space program ought to have a solid MOOP plan. We're already at a point where space junk is costing a lot of money and posing serious risks to other missions, it seems obvious that we need to get better at cleaning up after ourselves.

It is not our destiny to ruin everything we touch. For hundreds of years, there always be as much misery as happiness. We can all agree that there were crises and suffering and much more. But on the other hand, there were always discoveries and joy: the first flight to space, the first step on the Moon. Scientific centers are now producing many tools and facilities in order to identify and predict the where and hurricanes, to observe the asteroid thus making asteroid mission. Today, rockets are made not only to reach other planets but also to study the space. E.g. SkyHy rocket can investigate the earth's magnetic field. In the process of technology development, lots of stuff are ruined, but also many wonderful things are made.

NASA’s Office of Planetary Protection promotes the responsible exploration of the solar system by implementing and developing efforts that protect the science, explored environments and Earth.

When NASA announced this week that the space agency was searching for a new “planetary protection officer,” the internet went crazy over the six-figure position that sounded like something from out of this world. Headlines touted the role as a “job opening for someone to defend Earth from aliens” and memes followed closely behind.

The widespread attention — and misunderstanding of what the job entailed — surprised Catharine “Cassie” Conley, NASA’s current planetary protection officer, who has held the position since 2006. She’s glad to see people talking about NASA’s work, but wants to set the record straight: Her job is to protect both Earth and other planets from disease-causing microbes, not sentient beings.
