Figured I'd make a thread for all the universe, extra terrestrial, and general space exploration - savvy ninjas.

I'm obsessed with the moons and planets nearby that could possibly support life, whether microbial or intelligent. Like Europa's one moon Europa. But I just saw this news about one of Saturn's moons that is exciting:

Is this from the department of redundancy department? ;)

 

On a serious note, I'm interested in the same, but not very educated. I'm more into (and slightly more well versed in) what makes up space and how it all works. Also, the occasional space event phenomena; like comets, meteor showers, eclipses, that sort of thing. As a child, I studied the constellations and whatnot quite heavily, and it's something that has stuck with me despite not being able to devote much time to it anymore.

 

EDIT upon thinking more - significance of the 0 versus an O in the title? Or just being different? Just checking lol. Now, if you were to ask about the paranormal, I might have more to contribute lol.

I went to outer space with Sigourney Weaver once. I won't go into details (You probably wouldn't believe me if I did), but I will NOT be going back again anytime soon.

If I remember right, which I'm probably not, she took that cat up into space with her. I was asking if you were calling yourself a pussy, but stopped short because I didn't want to offend if you missed the joke. I was tired, not my best work lol.

They were, they said they would send someone in 2020, but I remember reading their AMA on reddit, and with the little amount of money they had for the project, there was no way they would be able to send someone on that timeline.

We as a species will eventually have no choice but to colonize other planets. If we want to continue the human race that is.

I meant to say Jupiter's moon Europa. You don't like my mistakes you can stick it up Uranus... and I don't have a Facebook. Could I survive on another planet? Yes, after scientists have settled and assigned us the proper guidelines. I read some shit about Mars colonization, and that shit is way more complicated than I ever imagined. But it is possible. And inevitable; there are already plans to colonize. 

My wife and I write and illustrate children's books, and I wrote one about Europa and Mars that we haven't illustrated yet. Basically this regular young guy, he's a scrub that has a dishwashing job at a chicken joint, sneaks onto a space vessel in the near future and goes to a Mars mining expedition. That's just the beginning lol.. yeah I'm weird but I enjoy me. And I enjoy your mothers just as well.

Just because something is necessary for the survival of the human race, doesn't mean the people in charge are doing anything about it.

 

Also that's hilarious that you write and illustrate children's books.  I do too.  Not as a profession, though.  Just a hobby.  Which ones have you done?

I haven't tried to get any published, they're just for my daughters to have. I have one about a spider that terrorizes a toddler and her parents won't listen to her, they just keep correcting her grammar. They're kind of like yuppies. The moral is that there are tons of different ways to say words, not everyone can be the same. My recurring theme with our books is for children to question authority and even reality. And sort of like the other thread where I said to not always respect your elders if they're fuckheads. I had one where this kid becomes a monster when he gets upset because he never let's himself show anger because its taboo, so it slowly makes him nuts. But its too much like the Hulk so I never finished it.

I'm the better writer so I do the stories and my wife

Touche, my friend, touche! No offense intended, I just use that redundancy line whenever I see an opening. :)

 

I, personally, see it far more likely that we simply die out in come global catastrophe or something than colonize space. The fact is, some of the naturally recurring events that have led to mass extinctions in the past are already thousands of years overdue. The world could enter an ice age tomorrow, and it honestly wouldn't shock anyone in the field of science.

No offense taken. I never get offended on here unless someone is going way too hard on AMB's nuts. It baffles me more than science could ever explain lol

I wonder what beings will inhabit the planet after humans? Maybe nothing. Maybe dinos again.

Most likely, the same shit that has survived every single global extinction. It's some blue algae stuff called cyanobacteria - If I remember right, it's survived them all and caused one or two, to boot.

And roaches perhaps? I wonder how the deep ocean-dwelling creatures have fared over the eons. The Mariana Trench type fishies, the terrible, Cthulu ones.

Also, @scruffy , well played.

@entrappedmind , no significance to the zero except that it looks more, uh, "spacey" than an O. At least in my off kilter worldview.

As for paranormal experiences, we got two dope threads on that already. It gets weird.

entrappedmind said a bunch of shit that the site apparently decided to replace with a repeated quote... Fuck.

Okay, what I originally typed... (Mental note, start copy/pasting long posts into notepad for this very reason)...

 

First of all, you're assuming the Mariana Trench existed during the extinctions. It most likely didn't, because of the amount of change the earth's plates goes through over the millennia, and would have experienced between the various events. Even if it had, the majority of life at the bottom of the trench is bacterial and/or amoebic. Very few "fishies" have been discovered.

 

As for roaches, their survivability is actually a myth. They'd be just as susceptible to an extinction as any other insect.

 

Post isn't nearly as long as it originally was, but I think I got the gist of it. Sigh.
