They will be doing all sorts of tests in the underground cities, it will be one massive lab. Would be interesting to see what kind of race of people they will develop over time, but we will not be around to see that, and i think that could be a good thing.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

It will take a few trips to set up a viable working Colony,possibly a decade or so.It is sheer madness to think that one trip will be enough,you need proven technology not experimental.

Yes i think the whole idea is totally nuts, but here again is the video of how it should work, with advance landers and rovers building the habitat.

Good to know tax payers are not funding it, but the private companies who are have to get the money from somewhere, so somewhere along the line we will be paying for it in what they are charging us now.
If i were around to see it actually work then I might feel it justifiable, but by the time they have it sussed, if they ever do, what ever these private companies are selling to us, the costs would have rocketed. WE WILL be paying for it somehow, and somehow I do not think it is worth it, humans living on Earth together is more important.

Seeing that story about James May off of Top Gear visiting NASA, of coruse, that's the answer isn't it! Send the whole Top Gear crowd! They'd love it, and it'd get Clarko out of our way for ever! :clap:

Be fun to watch the others try it,  if nothing else!!  :w00t: :w00t:

plus, they wont exactly have midwifes and doctors to help a birth along will they?  Or tend to any complications that may arrise. Or have the 'right' drugs for all eventualities? Now will they?
what if she needs a cesarean?? Loses blood? Goes into coma? Who you gonna call?

Well about Sex, i would say A Magnet Shoes <- Stand Still and they wont send doctors or engineers if something fails, they will train the chosen ones in Medical - Mechanical Engineering - Computer Science - Communication - and other stuff i dont know the name of

Just out of curiosity, do any of these people have any experience in Space exploration? Perhaps people might feel more confident coming forward if they know that there are some people who know something about astrophysics and Space travel on the board.

Although I can't help thinking, in view of the selection process which seems to involve America's or Britain's Got Talent style auditions, of the Golgafrincham Ark Fleet Ship B. I wonder if it might all be a plot to get some of the more flamboyant an extrovert off the planet and well away from everyone else. :innocent:

Right now with our tech it is a two year round trip.  When they do go they will need to come up with names for fifteen more months.


I am a mormon.  If I don't use mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the mormon faith. Thank for careing and if you don't peace be with you.
