Just watching the ISS footage from NASA TV
www.nasa.gov...

The astronauts seem so huge and their body shape odd for space-travel.

I wonder if over time, communities of astronauts on journeys over vast distances will have offspring on the journeys who tend towards the following body transformations:

1. Height decreases as no advantage.
2. Weight/muscle decreases as no advantage.
3. Brain size increases as advantage.
4. Mouth size decreases as food is pre-digested.
5. Eye size increases as advantage.
6. Ear lobes shrink as no advantage.
6. Skin changes to grey - uncertain of advantage.

Maybe the theory that greys are simply humans from the future could be true.

Grey skin could be some form of natural radiation shielding?

Dont forget no nose or sinus because that sense is quite unnecessary and very prone to infection. Another missing trait from greys.

This is how I see it.

1. Height decreases as no advantage.
True however on the moon low gravity would cause humans to grow larger. Places with high gravity would casue humans to grow shorter.

2. Weight/muscle decreases as no advantage.
Depends upon environment: Gravity levels as above. High gravity environment would require great strength. Low gravity environment would require low strength.

3. Brain size increases as advantage.
Humans at the moment have a decreasing brain size as it becomes more efficient ( areas on brain outranked by outer areas not needed) However in the long run larger brain could be an advantage, but the reason the brain is getting smaller some believe is because it has reached it's functional maximum size.

4. Mouth size decreases as food is pre-digested.
Mouth size could be right but only if food pre-processed. Also would require no teeth.

5. Eye size increases as advantage.
A larger eye size would allow better night vision but would be partly determined by the head size.

6. Ear lobes shrink as no advantage.
True they serve no purpose.

6. Skin changes to grey - uncertain of advantage
None I can see. Camoflage not needed, grey environment.

Or even more pertinently, could shopping trolleys evolve into steamships?

However humans have been getting shorter and weaker for a very long time. So future of humans on this planet would be shorter, weaker. Brain size of humans is reducing, getting more efficient. But once it is efficient it may increase again. So far we would be a midget with a similar size brain. Possible human future, a leprechaun, like the film "Darby O gill and the little people" but with more advanced little people.

Holy # leprechauns are us from the future, same goes for the occult dwarfs from German mythology.

As far as evolution is concerned: sure, I would say it's plausible but there's so many other shapes/forms we could take too.

On another note, I think by the time we become advanced enough to travel through "vast distances of space" our technology will be so far advanced that we're much more likely to change our own appearances and characteristics ourselves long before evolution ever would.

The future is here! I'm exactly 5 ft tall, 110 lbs...big brown eyes....

So, you are saying I'm the new Barbie doll for the future....yay...everyone wants to be me.....

i think you are on the right track with your opinion
i think having no ears as for the grey's they dont need ears for hearing cuz they can read your mind
but still they supposed to have small holes right were the ear slope would be
could mean they need those holes for pressure compensation or something
just a thought

If we begin to live on space ships instead of planets I could see this being the outcome. I mean in the long run wouldn't it be safer to stay on a ship instead of a unstable planet that could eventually explode or collapse on itself.

A big function of ears are that they are used for balance, zero G does not require much if any balance

Don't quote me on this, it is purely speculation but I have a similar theory:

Perhaps the 'Greys' are us from the future. Maybe we have traveled back in time and that is what UFOs are.

Mr. Confusion here, with another question. I thought evolution took thousands and thousands of years. How long are these guys going to be in their ship?

Not ridiculing your idea, but, in consideration that evolution typically takes millions of years, and the distances involved with space travel (with current technologies and understanding of the universe), if there were some species, any species anywhere, or any when in the universe, naked mole rats, bats, or a bowl of jello gelatin left out could eventually evolve into greys.

65 million + years ago, age of dinosaurs and all, we, humans, were pretty much more or less naked mole rats.

Given those kinds of time scales, dependent on resources, competitive advantages/disadvantages, pretty much anything could evolve into ... well anything else.

Interesting theory! I'd like to add that our piloting abilities in the distant future aren't that great, given the UFO crashes and all.


I also heard that we're actually getting taller. I'm taller than my father, when he was my age he peaked at 5'11" and I'm 6'1". I know it's not much but I am taller. And my brother is taller than his dad too. Heard it was something to do with hormones in chicken or something. Can't say it's 100% true, it's just something I heard a while back.

Are you sure humans are growing shorter over time?

I don't believe that astronauts would be the only ones susceptible to these physical changes, but your average human would be.


1. Height decreases as no advantage.
2. Weight/muscle decreases as no advantage.
3. Brain size increases as advantage.
4. Mouth size decreases as food is pre-digested.
5. Eye size increases as advantage.
6. Ear lobes shrink as no advantage.
6. Skin changes to grey - uncertain of advantage.


Many of the changes you listed above would be a result of less physical exercise since the average person, especially children, are sitting in front of computers, TV, and video games. The fact that our food is lacking in nutritional value would also lead to decreased height and muscle loss. I believe that not having ear lobes, otherwise known as attached ear lobes, is a genetic factor. I have attached ear lobes and this is seen in most of my family members. Larger eyes would also be a change caused by sitting in the dark staring at a screen. Always wearing sunglasses may also cause this. Smaller mouths may be a change caused by a decreased need for speech as more and more people are chatting on computers and texting. If the Earthly transition leads to telepathy, this is another reason why we would not need speech and the mouth size would decrease. The skin would change to grey because we're always inside away from the sun, so our bodies would stop producing melatonin causing the grey tinge.

I also have another theory as to why these physical changes are taking place and it has to do with pesticides.

I don't expect people to agree with my views in the thread above. It's just an observation.

People getting taller may be caused by the growth hormones in meats, too.
If this were to stop, we would probably see children growing at a slower pace and not becoming sexually mature so early.
