I think colonisation will be a pretty brutal period in time.
Yes.


My support would go out to the common masses in the hope they take back liberty and self worth and leave the "superior people" behind.
Your support doesn't count for much, sitting on Earth. It's them that go that count. The "common masses" and the "elite" will all die when the Sun gets hotter, no matter what.

Stories like this make me wish I had more qualifications to become an Astronaut and help create history by colonizing other planets


Me too.

I love reading real science threads. Or real science projection.

My SciFi needs to be plausible/probable.

#3...how do we know that for sure?

Maybe if I'm lucky one of my granddaughters may have inherited my sense of adventure and desire to challenge the unknown and want to venture into the great unknown! I was just born way too late....

So a really honest question, how many of Americans can adjust to a "new" set of values? 20 percent?


Americans? Huh? This is about humans.

Still one can hope that the "high race" will fade and the "common race" will prosper. We all know how it will end though, or rather Replay. I am sure within a century a new group of self righteous ass****s will begin to gain some wealth and power, believe they are above the rest, and begin another cycle of the class system, those that have and those that don't.

Hence my earlier statement people are stupid, history is ignored, the past repeats itself, and everyone eventually suffers for it, usually those too weak or too honest to be anywhere but the bottom.

Yeah. It sucks.

And yet, we go on.

Until the virus that is humanity becomes exstinct, the universe implodes, the universe spreads to far, energy becomes thin and the stars begin dying bringing about galaxies worth of ice ages.

Oh it is funny yes, but it saved Matt Damon in the Martian.

We need manure to grow things

I am still convinced we are planet germs. That is why animals move in sync with the planet and we are just a constant problem.

Germs do what germs do.

Animals do what animals do. We are animals. Smart animals. Though our smarts can get us into trouble, they also provide the potential to solve problems that animals without smarts cant. When we get cold, we can light a fire.

We can leave this planet and survive its destruction, if we have the will.

Which is why Terrence Mcenna said that mushrooms gave rise to humanity 100,000 yrs ago!

Not certain that is true but it does make sense

Ahhhhhhh, haven't seen it yet.

But, it took me 10 years to see the Exorcist. I didn't wanna be influenced by hype.
