Fark Rye For Many Whores: yourmomlovestetris: I've never understood sci fi shows that insist human beings will go everywhere.It's a desire.
yourmomlovestetris: I wonder if it would be possible to create a spaceship which is controlled remotely. For instance, you build a ship and send it across the galaxy, then create a hollow area within the ship that's quantum-entangled with a special chamber located on earth where all the fleshy humans can enter and work within. I know quantum physics doesn't work that way probably, but as far as a speculative setting goes, it could make for some interesting scenarios./I've never understood sci fi shows that insist human beings will go everywhere. It would make far more sense to just send robots or advanced ai's or find some way to pilot all of the stuff we send into space via remote control...

Notabunny: fta And while impulse drives apparently dump 100 percent of their energy into thrust, a real vessel, beholden to the laws of thermodynamics, would likely be bristling with a dizzying array of panels to radiate the excess heat generated by propulsion systems."Apparently"? What do you think is going to warm up your Earl Grey tea, dumass?

Great Janitor: What would it look like? Well, it depends on what inertia dampeners will look like, what artificial gravity generators look like, navigational deflectors required size to operate effectively to keep dust and space crap out of the way, and the size of the faster than light engines needed as well the size needed for the hydrogen ram scoops.And, let's face this fact: if the ship really can't travel fast enough to make the travel time from one star system to the other in a short enough amount of time, it will only have two functions: generational vessel to establish new colonies and robotic probes to explore space. And in both cases, the biggest problem is communication between colonies and space probes. The time it would take would be years. If we developed a way of communicating at the speed of light, it would take four and a half years to communicate between Earth and Alpha Centuri.In all honesty, I believe that we should look towards finding earth like planets with no intelligent life, that could be colonized by a group of people knowing full well, that it would be a one way trip. Given the population of Earth, sending out 3 billion people or so would help the Earth. And it really wouldn't be hard to find that many people willing to go. Just tell the Christians that these planets need to be colonized in the name of Jesus and that there is no such things as Space Muslims.
