Elon Musk And the Planet’s End

 Beatrice from France          

          The earth was formed 4.5 billion years ago. It is the third planet from the sun. Now the number of humans living on earth average 7.5 billion. That means that 7.5 billion brains could figure out a viable solution to quit our planet before. But how can we? Elon Musk is possibly an example.


Most of us have known that our sun will explode in 4.5 billion years and will destroy our planet, but there are a lot of other possibilities that could kill us that are not very well known.


As you can see in this documentary, the end of our planet could happen from a nuclear holocaust, a genetically engineered disease, a resource depletion, a huge disaster caused by a physical and scientific experiment, a deadly asteroid impact, methane bursts from the seabed, the creation of a black hole by the scientists or at least a super-volcanic eruption.

Elon Musk is one of the most famous entrepreneurs and engineers on this earth. He is the founder of and very involved in SpaceX, Tesla Inc, Neuralink, the Boring Company, OpenAI and Paypal. He definitely has no limits.

This man is motivated by goals in his life. He wishes to establish a human colony on Mars in order to reduce the risk of the human extinction. Also, he is trying to fight against the global warming through sustainable energy production.

At least this man understood the human mission which is to keep humanity alive.



Elon Musk not only has dreams, he is also a businessman. Why is he so famous nowadays? Elon Musk knows how create value and how to invest each dollar earned again into another company. He creates business value cycles in order to reach his goals. He is a great example to follow.

          To conclude, I think we do need more creative and determined people like Elon Musk. This real example gives inspiration to others and fits well with the very famous quote from Oscar Wilde,  “always aim for the moon to reach the stars.”


The mystery of the universe

In this article, I will explain one of the three reasons that support the Big Bang theory and I will talk about some questions that scientists can’t answer. First, the big bang Theory is a theory of the origin of the universe. The universe spread out around 13.7 billion years ago and it was 10 times smaller than today with no defined center.

The first reason that we observe in 1928 with the Hubble telescope, all galaxies are moving away from us. Most of the people think that other galaxies are moving in the space-time continuum, but it’s the space-time continuum that is expanding. That means the nothingness in the universe is expanding. The expansion of the Universe imaged like the swelling of a raisin cake.

Some of the question of the universe we can’t answer. Why did it happen this way? Why did it appear? One of the questions that scientists can’t answer it’s about the universe mass.

Scientists are able to measure the visible mass of the universe. (The visible mass is the protons, the electrons, the neutrons and the neutrinos). Their scientists are able to measure the total mass of the universe with the total gravitation. The problem is the visible mass represents only 5% of the total mass. So they worry about the other 95% of the galaxy. They call it the dark matter. They don’t really know what is the dark matter but some scientist has made a theory about it. We don’t have to confuse the dark matter with black holes that are completely two different things. That could have a link with the expansion of the universe.
