Title – From Geo-physics exploration to Planetary-physics exploration – A jump for the second quarter of the second millennium
We almost forgot that most of our acts are executed within the “small macroscopic world” governed by the classic laws of Newton, Maxwell and Thermodynamics. We also forgot that the extra-terrestrial investigations initiated in this second millennium use new technologies like remote sensing and tele-transporting information but still apply the principles of classical physics.
For the researchers in Earth Sciences it means to make the “jump” to a new continent “beyond the seas”. A new continent that comprises the closest aliens bodies: planets, moons, asteroids, comets….Do we call it Solar System? Where macroscopic physics will continue to be the basic methodology of our space-crafts.
