Haha WOW Quantum Apostrophe hates space. Like, space raped his uncle hate. Is he this much of a tool at other times, or does his space racism bring it out of an otherwise innocuous dweeb, hm?

SewerSquirrels: Quantum Apostrophe: bbfreak: OnlyM3: Brilliant .. hire a PC bunch with zero plans of building a vehicle to put them anywhere.
Yes, if only there was a shuttle successor in the works. Oh wait.
CGI != reality.
And how is space being explored by going up 0.1 Earth radii?
Again, I am stupid and need these obvious things explained to me.
It's like saying I am exploring the ocean because I dipped by toe at the beach.

FSM knows I should know better than this. (sigh)

If we put people on Mars, perhaps the point isn't what we might find there or even the spin off technology that are derived. Maybe the point is that "we" are there.

Have you ever wondered why Sir Edmund Hillary climb Everest? Was the point of him making such an arduous journey to plant the flag of New Zealand at the top? I don't think so.

Maybe if we go to Mars, it's because we want to. Maybe, in another couple thousand years, if we leave the Solar system, it's because we want to.  Maybe if we become a space faring bunch of ape descendents, it's because we want to. Or maybe we should just stop dreaming and climb back into the trees because dreaming is for schmucks and space nutters, right QA?

Those trees are filled with delicious, delicious nuts.  Wanting to abandon those tree nuts is what makes you a space nutter - because as much as you want it to be true, there are no nuts in space.

stevetherobot: What about the men being sent to Uranus?

Tragically, most were injured in a training crash.  The doctor in charge reports that not only did it wreck them, it dang near killed them.

I guess we live in the reality where Carter gets to be an astronaut.

Bright side no snakes in our brains.
