Hi all

No conspiracy or suggestion of little green men however just an info graphic which shows mankinds Space exploration very nicely........

www.bbc.com...

Give it a little time to load (although my connection is slow today..?)

Food for thought how far we have travelled manned and remotely...

Have a great weekend

I never knew that 'Ceres' existed in our solar system as a dwarf planet....?

I always thought i knew the nine main planets but Ceres is classed as a dwarf planet or embyro planet with a mysterious light spot on it....?

Maybe there is a conspiracy after all ...;-)

With both Dawn arriiving at Ceres and New Horizons at Pluto in 2015 we are sure to know more. I wonder if Ceres has an ocean if it might make a nice warm up for Europa and/or a suitable place for a manned outpost perhaps a mostly ready made fueling station on the way to the outer planets.

Anyways thanks for the post

I clicked on the BBC link and got - We're sorry but this site is not accessible from the UK as it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee.

I'm from England, so dont get me started on the licence fee lol.

Any chance you could put up another way of seeing it please as me (and i'm sure others) would like to get the full picture to the story. If you can then thankyou.

I get the impression she's a little too small to have much of anything. Going by my highly scholastic and learned understanding of tiny weeny planetoids. of choarse!

oO

Wouldn't that have been a nice outcome for us all though, imagine the solar system peppered with tiny oasis planetoids orbiting the sun on a similar path to us, so we could hop on for a 36 month break or something as we swanned around the pools and ate the local fruits which grew daily and never needed caring for.

Ahhh *opens eyes* Waargh argh !!!11 Oo

on second thought, look what we did to the bloody big oasis that orbits the sun on the exact same path as us. I think we need to change the notion of evolution before we could engage in that fantasy. Be more picard and less ferengi.

It's a huge picture that they show. Only 967 pixels wide, but it's 6762 pixels tall. If I scaled it down and shared it here, you would not be able to see the information on it. However, I might be able to break it up into several images and repost it on here. Will take me a few minutes to do that however.

Here we go. I had to cut it up and scale the images down. Sorry, but ATS will not allow uploads bigger than 500kb.

Not much is known in fact but there is speculation regarding an ocean similiar to that speculated on Europa anyways I think the oasis are there.

Thanks for the find, and for the scaled-down pics. Will probably have to grab a magnifying glass later to have a close look at the chart, it looks really interesting. Ceres or Bust!

Answer:
Not very far in physical form.

Also, not very far in robotic form.

If you likened our exploration to date to exploration percentages like in some MMOs you'd find we hadn't even hit a percent of a percent yet.

There is so much to discover, to learn, to see, to experience in the universe and we're still stuck here bickering about who's god is better or more real, or who's country has the biggest penis.

Space as a culture!~ Long Live NDT!

I know I'm late to this thread but we only have 8 planets.
Sorry

Aldrin's book featuring a pitch to place a manned space colony on mars as soon as 2035 hit the bookstores today. Land on the moon or not, that guy is crackers. He makes less than zero sense. I heard him speak in LA once. My friend nudged me and said, "Filly , he couldn't talk, let alone moonwalk his way out of a paper bag". We need some sober voices leading us, not yutzes like this. I think they need to go back to the moon. Prove that one for openers. This mars stuff is wacko.
