If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I actually started playing Mass Effect for the first time yesterday. After many mentions of colonizing worlds, I thought about this question: Would I become a colonist if I took the chance. So to you all I ask this: In the event that we are setting up colonies off Earth and you had the ability to do so, would you take the risk and become a colonist or would you stay on Earth? Would it also depend if the colony was being set up on the Moon, another planet/satellite, or space station?
I'd take any opportunity to leave Earth and search the black sea we call space. I kinda' wanna' know what else is out there. Even if I end up finding nothing, at least no one could say I didn't try.
I've been working on a patent that involves a mini-rotating blade that powers on electrically destroying kidney stones, before they reach the urethra. Also, I'm designing a patent, that will line the urethra with a super, rough sand-paper material, so that the stones wouldn't hurt as much, should they get past the crotch-installed, garbage disposal....I haven't quite worked out how the hard material will work with erections, however. So females are the first to be tested. Don't worry about their safety, though, as the ladies to beta test the "installment" will be German; because German ladies are tough....
Also, Mr. Kitsch has been reassigned to Jupiter. We feel his adventurous exploits will be much more appreciated there.
Actually, when taking orbits in to account, Earth is currently approximately fifty-five-million miles closer to Jupiter than Mars is.
Earth's gravity and natural air pressure compresses the spine.
The reduction of gravitational pressure on the spine results in a longer spine.
Some astronauts have come back from the International Space Station nearly two inches taller than when they left.
The same thing happens when you sleep, but on a much smaller scale.
I'd love to but my wife wouldn't even approve of me getting a fly in/fly out job.
I'd sign up without hesitating
Seen way too many horror movie in my life to join.
Cmooooon some space movies had happy endings like um...uhhhh..... I'll have to get back to you on that one.
I'd love to see it in my lifetime but that's very unlikely. In any case I'm far too old to be a part of it even if it was happening now.
The greatest obstacle to manned space flight within our solar system is solar radiation. A large solar flare at the wrong time during the moon landings would have exposed the astronauts to dangerous levels of radiation although on a three day mission their chances were good. Not so on a trip so far as Mars.
