[quote:Anonymous Coward 832667:MV85MzU4NjBfMTQ1MTk5ODVfNkJENkJFOTY=] [quote:tiaka9] I think space colonization/exploration, should be at the forefront of human endeavors. It would provide an excellent alternative to our present solution to overpopulation, ie genocide and war. what more noble goal than to ensure the survival of our biosphere, and relieve the pressure on our planet, of a pent up stagnant humanity. I also suspect that the necessity of systems in space to be increasingly self-sustaining the further out they got, would lead to concepts and technology that would utilize matter and energy more efficiently. Maybe we should not colonize or terraform planets,putting ourselves at the whim of an alien geology, and atmosphere, but instead build Arcologies (architecturally designed ecology), eventually on the scale of a Dyson sphere. Somebody on the same wavelength! :cool2: [/quote] lets talk solutions, instead of doom, I propose another thread discussing the formation of a non profit NGO dedicated to opening up space to the general populace. given todays economic distress we should strive for Private America to be the next pioneers in global space exploration. Its time we regain our technological prowess, and show the world that we can be a force for good, and beacon of hope, once again. [/quote]
And I`m not talking about the half-hearted attempts by the space agencies involved with such projects as the international space station, but a truly concerted effort by the whole world to seek out life-sustaining planets upon which to colonize.
Earth has a finite amount of resources and the six and a half billion of us are using those up at an ever-increasing rate. Isn`t it time we all pulled together and reached for the stars?!
In the 21st century, I`d love to know what`s stopping us. Is it technology? Is it a lack of will?
