Good morning/afternoon/Evening to every part of world.
There are lot of research by astro-space scientist to find out extra-terrestrial liquid water. In space science it is a subject of discussion because it is recognized as one of the key prerequisites for life as we all are aware of that it would help to establish the extra-terrestrial human life.
It’s really a wonderful attempt by Government of different countries to invest money, till now no success however excellent work done by space scientist to find out signature of water at different part of solar system like Mars, Europa, Enceladus etc. Please see details at Wiki Site.
Recently my son knocked out my brain and asked following questions related to water:
- Why water is so important?
- What is the need to save water?
Answers are very simple:
- A– Our body is having 70% water content and every live-being on this Earth is fully or entirely depend on water. Most of the earth is also covered with Water (in the form of Ice/Water), that’s why water is so important for us.
- A– Saving water is important because water resources are getting exhausted by human (due to various reasons) and it appears that very soon (within 25-50 years) most of the cities will touch the danger mark where availability of water to be NIL.
Both the answers are self-explanatory to feed the brain of 6 years old child. Frankly speaking, if we cannot protect water on earth, as a moral duty does not make sense to establish mission to find out water outside of earth. It is a big question for each of us that Science is blessing or curse, few of the 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 per cent 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 per cent. “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.
It is an eye opener for each of us that life threat is present for our tomorrows generation, see the global findings (Reference: Worldvision.org)
- 844 million people lack basic drinking water access, more than 1 of every 10 people on the planet.
- Women and girls spend an estimated 200 million hours hauling water every day.
- The average woman in rural Africa walks 6 kilometers every day to haul 40 pounds of water.
- Children are worst affected — They are more vulnerable to diseases of dirty water.
My son made an attempt to depict water crises in the form of sketch along with a message, spread this save water awareness at war level to every human on this earth and try to make sure people follow the practice of water saving.
Thanks a lot for spreading the awareness, a small step is like a drop in ocean, which may not be big enough to count, however without that ocean won’t be accounted.
Thanks a lot for your time and support.
