sorry, just a link this time original.gif

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

Interesting article Bizarro. original.gif
Although I doubt there will be colonization in 20 years, the research and developement done by the ESA, particularly in the propulsion system, could be extremely valuable for future deep space adventures.

I had no idea the UK doesn't support human space exploration huh.gif

purplestuart,thanks for the link but i've read all of that already before.
what i've said above is just my personal thought about it,i still think there's some wierd plotting behind it.....well,like i said that's just for what i think.... original.gif

but anyway thanks purple for supplying me the stuff and let's hope this plan will all be smooth,it would be a great achievement for us humans to put a colony there,we'll be waiting anxiously... original.gif

I hope so too - i'm not sure that it'll be that soon though, possible not in our lifetimes - it really depends on political will and that just isn't there at the moment, which is a pity

never take me too seriously
