Quantum Apostrophe: doglover: DEMAND NASA send live humans to Mars already.Yeah!Why!?
Quantum Apostrophe: Wanna try that with 100 000 000 kilometers of utter vacuum? With nothing on the other side?
StarshipAngel: QA...oh QA...I know you are a troll, and I'm likely wasting my time giving you this, but, I post infrequently, and I just feel the need to speak.
Quantum Apostrophe: doglover: Quantum Apostrophe: You could use the same arguments for the inside of a volcano...Funny you should mention that....No. Inside the volcano. Like under the lava. Explore where the tunnels go! There might be lava beings in there. We have to explore volcanoes, and I DEMAND that we do so! Because Thag didn't want to swim!So, since you're so totally not spineless like me, you've booked your flight to go walk in a volcano, yes?Cuz you're such a vital, hairy male with a huge erect penis that you paint white and put NASA decals on it, yes?You big man, you!You're just a pathetic middle-aged white male like me, who breaks a sweat going up a flight of stairs, and you think you can live your childhood fantasies by proxy through test pilots in rubber suits.Grow up.picturescrazy: And yes my post was talking both about Mars and other stars. Sorry it got muddled.It didn't "get" muddled, it IS muddled.Mars is a dead rock blasted in radiation.Stars are so much further away it's not even worth discussing.
Quantum Apostrophe: No one's going anywhere. There's no point, except for symbolism.You can't eat symbolism.You know no one's going anywhere. It's just you, me and everyone else, here. Forever.
picturescrazy: You missed the point. Thag couldn't swim across the ocean, and his fellow cavemen had no idea that building a ship was even possible. We've already sent people into that vacuum. We know there's something on the other side (in the case of this post, Mars, which we've known about since the time of Thag even if we didn't understand it then), it's just a matter sending someone there to prove we can. And like Thag's friend, who are you to say our descendants can't make the journey. Who are you to say it's impossible. An ocean going ship was unimaginable to Thag. We're already closer than he was.
