NASA went to fuel consuming rockets instead of the available advanced propulsion as if we were not going to the moon or planets anyway.
A more effective Navy was proposed long ago by Tesla. (March 20, 1907 To New York Times)
Tapping into his world wide remote control armies might have been a wikileaks disaster but do you think Tesla would ever give out the password. Laser is pulsed naturally coming from voltage jumps in atoms would have little effect compared to the focused voltage of Tesla as we know propels his ship and might beat out the destructive power of any laser gun. Unfortunately neither the Navy or anyone else beating a path to the Tesla library will be let in.
What's the Tesla-NASA-NAVY-Wikileaks connection?

So much radiation that life is impossible.
Where has NASA been, to the Moon.

It uses Arsenic instead of sulphur? Definitely not instead of phosphorous?Because if it's sulphur, then the only real difference is that cysteine are not the only necessary ingredient for a thermo-stable protein.
I hope someone replied to confirm that it's phosphorous. Sulphur would be an enormous let-down.
Research conducted by biochemist Dr. Felisa Wolfe-Simon from the U.S. Geological Survey has turned the quest for alien life on its ear, suggesting that phosphorous, carbon, and the other fundamental elements found in every living thing on Earth aren't the only signs of life. Wolfe-Simon will explain the findings at a hotly anticipated NASA press conference today at 2 p.m.
After a two-year study at California's Mono Lake, near Yosemite National Park, Wolfe-Simon found that a bug will grow in the presence of the toxic chemical arsenic when only slight traces of phosphorous are present. It's a radical finding, says molecular biologist Steven Benner, who is part of NASA's "Team Titan" and an expert on astrobiology -- forcing the space agency to redefine the quest for other life in the universe.
"When we're searching for alien life, if it's not a Ferengi from Star Trek, what would it be?" Benner asked FoxNews.com. In his estimation, we've always defined life as something that has the exact same chemistry as a life-form on Earth. The new discovery will likely change that equation, because it means the basic building blocks of DNA are not quite what we thought.
Benner, said the arsenic-loving organism at Mono Lake grew without high levels of the nutrient phosphate (although some phosphates were still present). Just as important, it could change how we look for alien life on other planets, especially on Saturn and the moons of Jupiter.
