Everyone could see Hobbes. They just saw him as a stuffed animal.

Exposure to solar radiation having a relationship with Alzheimer's is not an explanation for a child having an imaginary friend.

This headline makes no sense.

The comic in the second post gives me a sad. :(

Calvin and Hobbes is almost as funny as Garfield.

Radiation can be potentially harmful to humans? No way!

Space Nutters are already brain-damaged by definition, so send 'em up! Just don't let them back. They won't mind, they love their precious vacuum more than this stupid ball of mud anyways.

So... Why not wrap the space-ships in sufficient amounts of rock or lead? Or thicker armour in lighter materials, like foamed lead or somesuch? Presumably there are engineering problems associated with the additional mass, but maybe it could be boot-strapped by construction on the Moon or somesuch? I mean, the Moon already lacks Van Allen belts, so it would be a good testing area as well as a good staging area. I hear it also has deposits of Helium-3 for rocket-fuel.

Or maybe we should send morons who think we'll develop technology that will allow medical immortality in the near future. Oh wait, that kind of technology won't be developed unless we become a type II or at least type I civilization which means space travel. Guess you're farked, QA.

Solving the health problems of space travelers is inevitably linked to promoting life extension on Earth. The fact that FARK's most obnoxious anti-space troll knows but ignores this just shows how troll-y he/she/it really is.

Is subby trying to say that Hobbes was imaginary but the Spaceman Spiff stuff was real?

0/10 - unless you are in the field of an invisible cretinizer, then I pity you.

Hollowing out an asteroid and strapping engines to it isn't actually the worst idea in the world.

Got to be a way to create a small scale version of the Van Allen belts - a magenetic field that would deflect the radiation.

Shields up!

That comic in the second comment also makes me sad.
