[NYTimes] Evidence of Water Beneath Moon’s Stony Face - Page 6

post #51 of 57
It really isn't that unexpected...water is a by-product of pretty much every acid-base chemical reaction. Water must exist all over the universe.

Still very neat...and convienent, to fnd out that there is a bunch so close. Water and fuel would be some of the harder things to transport to a moon base. If we could just get water there for all the reasons we need liquid water and making hydrogen fuel it would really cut back on the logistic problems a moonbase would have

It does not matter if we go to Mars or the Moon, when the Sun expands in about a billion years, than we will burn.
We need to move to a new place or at least on the other side of the Milky Way or else there really is no other hope. Unless we invent a machine that can move Earth itself to a new place.
Actually it is thought that the sun will last about another 5 billion years I believe.

It doesn't matter if it's 1 Billion or 5 Billion, we won't be "Human" as we know it know, we'll have evolved into something almost unrecognisably different long before the Earth dies.

As for overpopulation, nature has a way of culling species when they can no longer sustain themselves, disease, pestilence or war.

All the eco warriors are concerned about is Human kind as we know it now, they don't really care about the Earth, nothing we can do would stop the Earth spinning, they just wan't to maintain the status quo of what we have now, well it can't happen in the long term anyway, it's evolution. Nothing is constant but change, nothing is certain but death.

And you think $70 a lt would cover your costs of extracting the water from the moon and transporting it back to Earth?

Even more important, 5 billion years is more than enough for humanity to destroy itself. I hate it when people say that mankind is inherently evil. However mankind is definitely good at self-destruction.
The Sun is the least of our concerns ^^.

Honestly though, talking about mankind's future billion of years ahead of now is pointless. We won't even be what we call "human" anymore (remember guys, evolution!)

EDIT: Grilled.

The only possible explanation for such a dramatic increase in elements in the atmosphere is either a spontaneous ocean appearance, or the existence of a colony on the moon.
Or, you know, better equipment...
