We are human beings. We will never ever live WITH anything except other sentient beings. We manipulate and reform and invent. The only reason the Earth holds value is because we dont know how to make more Earths. In fact having more planets make nukes a lot less threatening to the species as a whole.
Lots of innovation comes through competition and a lot of our innovation and the reason we are so intelligent from an evolutionary standpoint is BECAUSE of war. It doenst take a lot of brain power to kill herbivores, but it sure does take a ton to outsmart the other tribe. Iron sharpens iron. I dont think war is that useful in the current day but war definitely had its purpose in the past. Even the Cold War is what led to USA vs Russia space race since nukes cant be used or we all die. Just saying even with the horrors of war it did serve its purpose.

The world is a bizzare place my friend. thumb.gif great post

I can guarentee that. I understand certain things are hardwired into my mind through evolution and i am reminded of my instinctual and animalistic past everyday...why do you think most PC Games revolve around killing, destroying...When i look at it from a distant perspective i just shake my head and think wow is that nuts but i can understand why it is that way.

But i used to have the notion of everything should be devoted to space exploration, well no...more should be devoted to space exploration and i belive everything we are dpoing on earth right now is all in some small way preperation for our departure.

I agree that your points are just as important, so that we can make it until then.

Yup, we've got to do it sometime, and there's no time like right now.

I'm still counting on seeing the first Martian landing, and possibly going there. They're going to need truck drivers on Mars too, right?

I've recently become interested in space exploration. I hope this really takes off. Its about time the human race truly moved into space.

excellent good to hear that, what got me into space was buying a subscription to Astronomy magazine after reading a few i went space crazy and started reading a ton more, mostly on space colonization. thumb.gif

Everybody now, go study and become areospace engineers so we can all leave this rock biggrin.gif or become billionairs and hire areospace engineers to do all the work.

Eithier of these two options is fine and you will be doin humanity a great service.

If you do become a billionair please please push for moon colonization mining.

Recycling does nothing. Until we can learn to recycle without it costing more in current practices. Current recycling methods aren't efficient at all.

You can stay here then and watch technological breakthroughs in space filter back down to Earth. The rest of us will be signing/lining up for duty rosters on the next space missions.

We do know how to live 'WITH' the planet. Sadly, for the foreseeable future we will still be killing each other. But that's not a bad thing. There are still remnants of Neanderthal man in present men, of which in my opinion should be eradicated. Immediately.

Has anyone noticed an increase in the amount of movies where aliens try to take over the world?? Anyone think its the goverment secretly trying to warn us that the end is near and we cant stop them?? Or the aliens feeling bad and trying to give us a heads up?

Nope. No current secret-government-knowing alien apocalypse is on the verge. No conspiracies. The reason you see movies of alien invasions is because it strikes at the primordial fear of man's history. Invasion on any level is a scary thing for humans. Whether it be another country, a species of insect, or alien, it's scary all the way around.

James Cameron movies aren't even good. The one movie he did do that was good was The Abyss. Everything after that has been crap or the same stupid story line used in 9/10 Hollywood films with different environments and the like. Take Avatar and compare it with Titanic. Literally, same dame story with two different casts, two different settings, etc. I'm with you, not a Cameron fan by any means.

Once this is done, there will be money spent on ships developement and we would reach that planet in a short lapse of time (hopefully)
the closest earthlike planet, and by earthlike that means they think that it has liquid water on it is Keplar 22b, which is 600 light years away. thats 600 years at the speed of light.
lol... the fastes thing that humans have EVER created was a deep space satelite called helios B, which travels 252792 km/h, and that is only 0.02% of the speed of light.
tru facts^

believe me a want to go to friggin space and live like mass effect like everyone else, but this will not happen within FOREVER!!!
no but really, living like mass effect would be the coolest thing ever tongue.gif
