Mission water – The Search of water on Earth

Hello everyone,

Good morning/afternoon/Evening to every part of the world.

There is a lot of research by Astro-space scientist to find out extra-terrestrial liquid water. Water is one of the key prerequisites for life, that is why it is a subject of research. Extra-terrestrial existence of water boosts the programs to send humans in space for a long period.

It’s really a wonderful attempt by the Government of different countries to invest money. Finding water signatures at different parts of the solar system is an amazing achievement achieved by space scientists. They are able to locate water molecules at Mars, Europa, Enceladus, etc. Please see the details at Wiki Site.

Question of every child

Recently my son knocked out my brain and asked the following questions related to water:

  1. Why water is so important?
  2. What is the need to save water?

Answers are very simple:

  1. A– Our body is having 70% water content. Every live-being on this Earth is fully or entirely dependent on water. In the form of Ice or water about 73% of earth covered with it. This coverage is critical to keep the right balance of an environment.
  2. A-Lack of water preservation techniques causing water crises. It appears that very soon (within 25-50 years) most of the cities get into the danger mark. There will be no water in liquid form in the future if not done any planned care.

Both the answers are self-explanatory to feed the brain of 6 years old child. If we cannot protect water on earth then it does not make sense to find out water outside of earth. It is a big question for each of us that Science is a blessing or a curse. Sharing water crisis signature explained below:

Chennai (India) water crisis ‘Day Zero’:

The 2019 Chennai water crisis is an ongoing water crisis occurring in India, most notably in the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. On 19 June 2019, Chennai city officials declared that “Day Zero”, or the day when almost no water is left, had been reached, as all the four main reservoirs supplying water to the city had run dry.Two years of deficient monsoon rainfall, particularly in late 2017 and throughout much of 2018 had led to this crisis. Because tap water has stopped running, some families have been relying on alternative water sources such as distant, unreliable public water pumps, and costly private water tankers.

Cape Town (South Africa) water crisis:

The Cape Town water crisis in South Africa was a period of severe water shortage in the Western Cape region, most notably affecting the City of Cape Town. While dam water levels had been declining since 2015, the Cape Town water crisis peaked during mid-2017 to mid-2018 where water levels hovered between 15 and 30 percent of total dam capacity. In late-2017, there were first mentions of plans for “Day Zero”, a shorthand reference for the day when the water level of the major dams supplying the City fell below 13.5 percent. “Day Zero” would herald the start of Level 7 water restrictions, where municipal water supplies would largely be switched off and residents would have to queue for their daily ration of water, making the City of Cape Town the first major city in the world to potentially run out of water.

Survival of Water for the next generation.

It is an eye-opener for each of us that life threat is present for our next generation. We should set this as mission for water preservation . Please see the global findings (Reference: Worldvision.org)

  1. 844 million people lack basic drinking water access, more than 1 of every 10 people on the planet.
  2. Women and girls spend an estimated 200 million hours of hauling water every day.
  3. The average woman in rural Africa walks 6 kilometers every day to haul 40 pounds of water.
  4. Children are worst affected — They are more vulnerable to diseases of dirty water.

My son made an attempt to depict the mission of water crises via sketch. Written a sweet encouraging message to spread the awareness. At the war level, everyone should come forward to make sure that people follow the practice of water-saving.

Thanks a lot for reading and spreading awareness. We should make sure to give enough water to the next generation.

Thanks a lot for your time and support.
