Everyone knows gravity attracts matter — it's one of the reasons why we stick to the ground. But how does gravity feel about antimatter? According to the scientists at CERN — the same organisation responsible for the Large Hadron Collider — we're about to find out.

Long before we try to go to the stars, I think we should start by colonizing this solar system and that can happen as soon as humanity as whole finally sets aside their petty differences, work together as one family and just do it.
With the population of the earth being around eight billion, if even a good percentage of the working age population were to combine their mind power and muscle power, we could have colonies on the moon and full scale cities on mars, in mere decades. All it takes is the desire and the effort.
Peace be with you.

If the average Joe could get into orbit, the space-race would get a kick in the ass. Space cowboys would start heading out in all directions.

Space travel even to the moon is way beyond private investors right now, yes you need resources, resources of the entire planet. Stop watching those National Geographic space shows and come down to earth. Reality is really much more mundane that what TV show watchers preach to us, (after all, TV shows are for ratings, much like conspiracy theorists regardless of what their educations and employment might have once been, are for profit, personal profit), not fact.
