MBooda: Yeah. They're just going to use it for "study".[25.media.tumblr.com image 500x375]
miss diminutive: That asteroid, in turn, could be used as a base for further exploration to the moon or Mars.A base the size of two double decker buses? Are we converting to a squirrelnaut space program?
Freakin Rican: dont we already have a link for this with yo i heard you like moons so im putting a moon yada yada yada
Pinner: The size of two (2) double decker busses. And that is enough for a space base?Neat. LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!!!
Deucednuisance: "Scary" tag?I remember the days when this would have been "Cool" or downright "Spiffy".Sigh, what's become of us?
Weidbrewer: WE GET IT! THEY'RE GONNA ORBIT A FARKING ASTEROID!
amquelbettamin: What we need is a mass the size of earth in orbit around earth so we can orbitally accelerate a craft fast enough to reach another solar system. Not as big, necessarily, but a similar mass
JonnyBGoode: It wouldn't have a stable orbit due to the Earth's gravitational field constantly tugging on it.
KangTheMad: I'm leaving this one in the hands of my fellow Farkers.
Maul555: amquelbettamin: What we need is a mass the size of earth in orbit around earth so we can orbitally accelerate a craft fast enough to reach another solar system. Not as big, necessarily, but a similar massI can find no flaw in your brilliant plan.
TheDirtyNacho: This would have some ...interesting... gravitational effects.
WelldeadLink: I told you. Any headline placed in lunar orbit is unstable and may cause repeats.
