We need to sort out the mess we have made of this planet before Phuking up another one
And all this time I thought it was perklempt. Thanks for the skewlin.'
But saying verklempt always gives me schpilkas in my genechtagazoink
Semple, I did add that NASA page as a link, but I would like to add that it is not my concern whose money is being spent, but that it's being spent to live in Mars which is way beyond our usual extravagance. NASA might always have been purely educational in it's "Jorney to Mars" but there are people doing, I must say, Exceptional work and using their brilliant minds and lots of money towards "Settling there":
Of course I Have no right to interfere in how people spend their money and can only feel bad, wishing that money had been spent elsewhere.
By some reports the Pentagon misplaced $8.5 trillion dollars between the Obama and "W" administrations. With a $600 billion dollar annual budget how is that even possible?
War (or the prevention of war) cost us dearly. Scientific inquiry is always welcome.
Huge amounts were taken by Chaney's company, Halliburton.
True, some of the trucks were so full of money that some of it was blowing off onto the road and people were grabbing it as it landed on the road.
Nah. Not worth it man. We already know there are aliens there. Lol
Martians are consummate liars. :-)
They don't take US seriously, so why should they take our concerns seriously?
We are bankrupt as it is
As indeed is the UK, both morally and fically
How we getting there? Government would leave behind
The question I have is : Why do you think Randy Cramer is honest and NASA is not, when it could be the other way round? Is life on Mars a commonly held belief? If your answer is yes, that will be my next post..
That way all the idiots can move there, including the drama queen celebrities. And since they'll be moving to Mars, they can never come back to Earth because of the affects gravity will have on their bodies. Bon voyage!
I just realized it is all in the fear of an apocalypse that we need to settle part of our species elsewhere.
absolutely. guess what you call an apex species trapped on a single planet? if you guessed doomed, you guessed correctly.
Oh my god.. Sorry I deleted my previous comment because I had made some changes and that reply got deleted too.. :(
Sorry I don't have time to read a lot but I came to know about Mars one from an article on Reader's Digest.. It looked pretty authentic. But I did find this on the Internet:
And this video:
Lol..... I wish I didn't have a 25 chapter test this week. All this is so tempting.
For whether it is a scam or not, we'll know in 2020. 5 years is not too far..Wait? It does look unreal? We haven't yet stepped on Mars and in five years, we settle there? :(
Returning to the discussion, Really how does knowing about another planet help us again?
The only thing I would love is the evidence of other life forms which we might communicate with and learn from and yes, probably another planet that is close by like Mars but is more similar to Earth than it, like with water, air, atmosphere, lithosphere.. I mean Earth is perfect, optimum, and another Earth is really far away.
I'm sorry but money spent on space exploration might be money well spent but just because money is being wasted elsewhere doesn't justify wasting money somewhere else as well, does it?
Is it well spent? Brings me to the question of whether it is all about being the "first in the world" to do something, because look at the kilometers of barren land in Africa and even Antarctica.. Isn't that easier? Shouldn't we try to cross our continental barriers before taking this high jump?
I agree with all your arguments on how space exploration is actually helpful. It was dissolving in my ignorance, and the fact that all I was thinking about was settling on Mars, which brings me back to the barren land comment.
By The barren land comment, I meant why should we cultivate another planet when we aren't yet done with our own?
It's hard to answer this. It's not a yes or no question
So you believe this man is telling the truth... That the atmosphere in Mars is completely breathable, while NASA is lying that it contains 96% CO2.
Do you find it easier to believe that a planet so close to Earth is so Earth like, and has the perfect atmospheric mixture of gases, OR Do you find it easier to believe that the contrary has been studied by a panel of scientists?
What about stepping on the moon, and NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Mission.. Do you also think the rovers and those pictures are false, all their photographs are man made; or do you think it's all true but they feel like Mars should be lied about. There's also Rosetta by ESA, and MOM from India, so I guess it's not only NASA exploring Mars.
Sorry. Maybe My low IQ and lack of historical knowledge are starting to get the better of me. Yes, the video doesn't talk about gas composition but I looked into the claims of Randy Cramer. And like I said, my poor brain is unable to comprehend the rest of your comment because there's so little I know about the Cold War.
Yes, It seems far fetched. Ok... Maybe I'm wrong and aliens exist, and all; the countries and NASA are all lying. Maybe you and the retired CIA officer and Randy Cramer have beliefs. One day, I will find out what's true and today is not the day.
Sorry about my disinterest.
I found out i could disagree with and love a comment at the same time. I still don't believe aliens. I'd rather believe ghosts.
There are so may people talking and not being heard but sometimes they deserve ignorance...look..
Once, there were rumors that a person mixed his HIV positive blood in a juice tetra pack and some believed it and some never cared, and we all knew it was false because it never showed up in the news like other food related scandals. It was only on the internet. Another popular website then claimed it to be false.
But... I also believe that some people do go unheard fir years together like Mendel talking about inheritance and people talking about other conspiracies like Julian Assange.
Ok... You have to admit there are some ridiculous things coming up on the Internet. If you can't ignore the fact that they could be true, then you still can't ignore the fact that it could all be made up. I agree that talking about the news thing was a little too naive, but I would never believe that news, because I knew that it was all wrong. Everything can't be true. When we believe one thing over another, we need strong concrete evidence in support of that thing which is why I would say the Earth is probably a sphere, cuz I can see ships sailing off the horizon, and the horizon disappears even from the aeroplane...lol... All I want to say is that I might not believe just the photographs that tell me the Earth is round, but I will certainly believe it when I see it myself.
In the very same way, I am asking you: Is there anything other than statements by people on YouTube that can convince me that Randy Cramer is right and NASA is not?
So far I haven't seen anything from the Moon that can help us...so NO.
What if they had found some precious metal or something else of value on the moon?
What about the world under the water...? Has anyone really explored that...?
They are exploring it.
Well, ya never hear about it...and I'm as interested in Atlantis as I am about the moon. I was excited about the moon...but nothing has happened...
Yes of course. I understand some exploration must be necessary but so far I don't see how any has helped us... I mean, you know the example about curing the common cold....
I don't see what being on the moon has helped us with the internet...unless the very act of going to the moon has precipitated these inventions we use everyday...
But being on the moon, taking back some rock and saying something like Wow...this will cure the common cold...or this will become a new form of computer...well I haven't seen anything like that happen.
Building up the immune system would be one way of curing the common cold and if they could bring something back from the moon to do that...well that would be great...
Also there are schools of thought that the latest inventions are, well, too much. I know people who live simple lives without computers and cell phones.
Whether you think going to the moon has helped us or not is irrelevant. The point in exploration is that you go explore; you find out what's out there. If we hadn't gone to the moon we would just be sitting around wondering.
Yes... but the fact that it seems to have become a financial drain and a competition among nations make it more dubious.
There might be more co-operation but nevertheless there is and always will be competition... I mean I can't see the US saying to Russia...we've found something new on the moon....and we'd like to share our findings with you guys...!
And still how can exploring the moon help the poverty in the world?
Did it make sense to search for the new world?
From the adventure seeking perspective, absolutely.
From the 'barging in and taking over' viewpoint, no. Amrite?
better than supporting babie killers like Planned Parenthood
well you make a compelling point right there. i'd rather my money not go for either programs, one is murder of the innocent, then other is waste to get bragging rights. but if it HAD to be one or the other i would pick space travel
i am learning cheaper ways of doing it
I am more for space travel then going to mars if any thing goes wrong you are dead and you will all depend on your team to survive you will be trapped.
well, I really don;t care so long as NOT ONE PENNY comes from any tax payer money. if they aquire that money through som euseful WORK then by all means, but off my back? waste ot time money, and will ultimately serve no other purpose other then bragging rights. an expensive bragging right
It would be easier to live in space then Mars.
