Quantum Apostrophe: Here's another question just for you: How are you going to act when reality finally sinks in that humanity isn't going anywhere?


It's going somewhere. It's just the only place in our lifetime it can possibly go is either nowhere, or extinct.

/1 or two more generations need to go past till we live in space.

OhioKnight: He wants to colonize Mars, lots of other people do too, and he thinks he can do it with the tech he's developing in about 15 years. He thinks a Mars colony can be self-sustaining with current tech and a few billion in investment. He thinks the issues involved in this can be overcome and that he can do it.


Nicola Tesla believed that he could beam electricity through the air via enormous tesla coils that would energize the atmosphere itself, and you'd be able to pick up the energy with an antenna.

He's right, but it works at a distance of millimeters, not inches or feet. Certainly not miles.

The Spruce Goose Technically flew as well. But only once.

History is littered with the failed exploits of very smart men.

In parting, I give you the russian ship, that can jump over bridges... Neat idea, never went anywhere.

So Elon dies on Mars. Where the anerobic bacteria in his gut survives and begin the evolutionary process added by the gamma radiation that Mars's thin atmosphere is incapable of stopping. The end result being a super bacteria specializing in digestion of the human body, just waiting for the next explorer to come and bring it back to earth..........

It looks like it's going somewhere in a hurry in that picture.  The cruise missile tube placements look like fun.

They are jet engines. It's a ground effect craft. All the worst parts of a boat and a plane combined in to one horrifically dangerous package.

Space Cowboys.  It is on the Moon and not Mars, but the end result is close to this the basic idea of the headline.
