Show us on this 3D printed doll where Space touched you.

Mars ain't the type of place to raise your kids. In fact, it's cold as Hell.

Quantum Apostrophe: BigLuca: Other than your maniacal hatred of space exploration (and incorrect apostroph'e usage), you seem like a pretty normal guy. So I always assumed the space thing was some sort of satirical/sarcastic statement ... but I'll be damned if I can figure out what it is.

That you have to be insane to not understand the size of the vast emptiness that is space, that sci-fi is fiction and not real engineering, that materials have limits, and that none of the delusions from the Space Age make any sense.

And I don't hate space exploration. Like I've said about 1/Planck times, I hate the delusions and uncritical gee whizz attitude of otherwise normal people when confronted with the escapist drivel from the space whackjobs.

Some poor idiot wants to die on Mars, it's a mental illness, not some sign that Star Trek is just around the corner. Because you just know that's how some people think.

Still too complicated to understand?




I see you're a visionary .

Mind you, I'M not going.  I'd rather live out on the Canadian Shield (and I don't want to do that).  But I admire the hell out of him for what he's doing.

Quantum Apostrophe: Jon iz teh kewl: Quantum Apostrophe: Jon iz teh kewl: no. there's actually gonna be a reality show on Mars in the next few decades

Oh how cute. I'm sure they'll stay at the 1997 Japanese Space Hotel on their way to Mars on a 3D printed spaceship. Great view of the Solaren orbiting solar arrays from there. Waitaminit, none of those things ever happened, or ever will. Hmm, I wonder if this is all just another scam with "private space" in it?

well 3D printing *IS* the future isn't it

Of course it is. I fully expect it to fully replace every single industrial or chemical process out there. All this nonsense about different kinds of materials and precision machinery to make ICs, it's just a conspiracy to prevent us geeks from 3D printing houses.

Tell me exactly what you think 3D printing is the future of? What is it you think we can't build now but 3D printing will let us? What is it you think we haven't been doing already for the last 20 years or so? There is no "future" of 3D printing, you're living in it NOW. 3D printing is like VR was in the '90s. Lots of hype, with a very few legitimate uses for very technical people.

And can you tell me what happened to the Space Hotel? Or Solaren? Or OTRAG? What's different this time?

That's no satire.

Every IQ point and dollar that was wasted on space exploration, 3D printing, flying machines, computers smaller than a room etc have been resources denied to life extension research. Because science is a zero-sum game. All science Nobel Prizes should be rescinded from their recipients and awarded to Ponce de Leon for his valiant effort.
