Since Starcraft 2 is a science-fiction game, is anyone excited about the Orion spacecraft? It's old news, but the spacecraft is coming along.
Not all that much I think. More interested in some more theory before we really start working on Mars missions. We have too much shit going on at home to spend this much resources on the subject.
That said, it'd be interesting to see what happens when it launches, seeing as how I personally have no real impact on the process and it's already running now anyway.
And it would be a waste of time... Already have a probe sent to Mars, already have enough info of the Moon.
If this is to have any reason, must be a crew sent for decades and must aim to other planets. If a step is to be made further and still in the solar system (because with the laughable technology presented in public, going beyond is unthinkable), the direction has to be - JUPITER MOONS, Saturn or Neptune Moons and or Neptune itself.
Anything closer is a waste of time. If you wanna drop your asses in a different environment just to say you're the first humans, but when there's already a probe and pictures there, it would be a huge waste of time, money and resources.
Human spaceflights are PR missions.
Instead building the orion, they should have the James Webb telescope already up and running.
Without people in those places, we can't see what all those nooks and crannies in them underground caves we might possibly find usin' a telescope.
For that you have the robotic missions.
Humanity will have to colonize space and other planets to increase it's probability of survival. Data gathered about the human body during space missions will be very useful.
We are centuries from having self sustainable colony on an other planet. And even if we will have one, most likely the foundation of it will be built by robots... (humans in space suits are pretty bad workers, not to mention the health risks)
We already gathered lots of data on long term space mission effects on human bodies by the ISS.
Well appearently NASA announced that an announcement was coming in a few weeks, Saying they have discovered something on mars that will "Change All History books"
my maps will always be Free. and Available to the public at the earliest possible date.
If you need a tester feel free to ask IShadowWolf.258
You can also catch me on the IRC most times.
Not necessarily. We already have the ability to create self sustainable colonies by applying space station and closed ecological system technologies. The ISS's inhabitants currently work in space suits with the use of powered tools and robotic crane, not to mention that people had already briefly worked successfully on the surface of the moon. In the near future, space suits will be augmented with powered exoskeleton's. As materials advance, space suits will be much more effective at shielding radiation and resisting tears. We still have uncertainties about pregnancies in space, birthing in space, human development, performing surgery in space, and all the other effects and necessities of living in space permanently; we require more data.
Our expansion into space is really limited by lack of better method to get to space and land on planets safely and economically. Theoretically, we could actually modify the ISS into a rudimentary space "elevator" by extending a long cable from the ISS to the surface of Earth and extending another cable from the ISS away from Earth.
No we dont. All closed ecological system projects failed on the long run....
Why to make exoskeletons when you can remote control it with some AI help. If quantum entangled communication become real than you can remote control it without ai because there will be no delay in communications. Human body will be a waste in the future explorations... (and I wasnt even mentioning how much cargo it takes all the life support stuff...)
