On Sunday, SpaceX was demonstrating a crucial safety system of its Crew Dragon spacecraft, a capsule that is to carry astronauts for NASA to the International Space Station.
The meteorite, according to a team of scientists, was the chief perpetrator, while the volcanism, driving climate change in the background, might have affected life’s recovery in the wake of the impact.
NASA has said that astronauts could grow their homes on the Moon and Mars out of fungi instead of building them. The same project could also prove to be a sustainable and affordable model of housing on Earth.
