Re: Elon Musk & the Mission to Mars

Unless Elon Musk provides a rocket trip back home to Earth The rockets are supposedly coming back. I figure what'll end up happening is average people will get hired for something like two year terms. Go up, run machines or whatever, come back if you're not down (or get fired), or sign up for anoth...

Re: Making Humans a Multiplanetary Species

I doubt forever will catch on, especially at first. More likely something along the lines of two year terms. It'll totally end up on TV though. Who’s choosing to stay, who’s getting voted off, etc.

Air? Crews have been breathing in space aboard the ISS for almost sixteen years. Submariners lurking about with their nuclear weapons don’t seem to mind providing their own air at all.
