Make the calculation. How many people have been saved by bullets and how many have died by it.
And those that have been saved did they had to kill anything in order to be saved?
I don't care which design they choose from what film, enterprise or a deathstar operated by a HAL 2012, i just want to go climb the mountains on Mars

LMAO...Ion drive. Why stop with an ion drive? If Tachyons are proved reality instead of theoretical, you can make a faster than light engine if you could figure out how to harness it and create a "warp" bubble around the ship. Ofcourse you have no way of steering that thing or knowing where the hell you're going or how you're going to get back and if you did get back you would return thousands of years into our future and everyone you ever knew would be dead for thousands of years. You would basically be Christopher Columbus in space and watch out for black holes.
You could end up on the otherside of the universe with no idea where the hell you were at and the stars wouldn't even be remotely familiar.edit on 13-5-2012 by lonewolf19792000 because: (no reason given)
Prophets of Science Fiction
Sci Channel Synopsis
What once was just imagination is now real; what was once the distant future is now around the corner. The 'Science Fiction' of the past has now simply become 'Science'. And the science of the future was strangely prophesied by a group of visionaries whose dreams once may have deemed them renegades and 'mad scientists,' have become reality!
The cost would be mindbendingly huge for little (monetary) profit.

A bullet is a thing. A tool. Steel is a waste of material. It's been used to kill people for centuries.

so cool. It is not realistic but still. Nice.
The gravity flywheel is just insane. I can't imagine that being built.
Still though I would take a trip up to a life sized Constitution class and like spend my vacation there. Why don't we build a hotel in orbit? We could make it like space ship, just not a functional one.
Like a resort of theme park. I say the first space tourism should be in a mock ship /Hotel. Preferably a constitution class. They could make a smaller Galaxy class, but Most would want to "visit Spock".
