Put the money for the toys on the big thing
instead. Fund the "Entrprise" and well have
a "go´see"....


Even if we could magically build a warp ship like the Enterprise, you still gotta know where to go.

In Star Trek terms what we're all doing now with compiling a list of interesting places to target future telescopes and perhaps probes is what they called "Stellar Cartography".......




Naaa...Just point in any direction and "ENGAGE"...
Human is an explorer by nature..
Cloumbus just had a vague notion that "There must
be land over there"..The Vikings did the same..
Sure space is a tad bigger


But as the finders so far are concerned, there are
planets in every starsystem...How big, how close
to the star, is it habitable...WHO knows...Lets
go´see......

Im in, whos with me....

If only it were as easy as doing it on a Hollywood set in Star Trek uniforms

Pitch, in Britain at least, is a term to describe any playing field...


I know. i know. it's one of the reasons we rebelled you see...

If we stop dreaming and fantasise we will loose
hope. And at that moment we will loose our
humanity.

Agreed. Dreaming drives science. But dreams alone will not get us to the stars. Hard work and dedication to providing the pre-requisite resources to get us there will.

That and some green to fund the research into warpdrives...
Or else we´ll have to stay here and keep dreaming...

Well there is research into warp drives and other unconventional paths which may lead us to shortcuts to the stars.

This was the state of Breakthrough Propulsion Physics investigations at NASA about 12 years ago.



Only the grayed out boxes appear to be dead ends.

Cant build things no ones thought up


Dream before you leap

Heres a topic i just made.
Its ON topic but different
so in another part of ATS.

also i don't think anyone ever built anything which they were not at least neutral about whether it could be done or not. if you deny something can be done you will never do it. it'll be someone who thinks it can be done or might be possible. the dogmatic who pronounce that FTL or gravity control cannot be real will never invent it. Skeptics never do anything except obstruct and slow advancement.

Too bad THIS project by the ESA never made it. It wouldn't be as good as ATLAST but it would have been launched next year and it would have been a great opportunity to get some more details of already confirmed exoplanets.

Also, i think the main concept was pretty smart. It's more complex to get a coordination between several, individual telescopes to combine them as one whole mirror and of course the payload will be higher but in the end it pays off, it think, for several reasons. One of them would be the mailfunction of one telescope, that will result in a lower resolution but won't result in an end of the mission itself, for example.

Yeah, it was sad that both Darwin and the NASA version of it, the Terrestrial Planet Finder died. I think there was an assumption in the US that if TPF was cancelled Darwin might still go ahead.

Instead, both died due to budgetary or other reasons.
