We created spacecrafts that will sustain their energy for 1 billion years, and sent them outside the solar system. So yeah.
#11 to #6 - anon (07/06/2014) [-]
if you're refering to Voyager, yeah no, they have at least less then 500 years of energy to sustain their systems, and Im pretty sure its MUCH lower then that
#32 to #11 - newzalaman (07/06/2014) [-]
Oh yes, my mistake. 1 billion years is the estimated lifespan of the information stored in those spacecrafts.

voyager 1 only has enough energy to power it's systems until 2025...

Doesn't matter. still impressive as **** .

Why would you assume people would act in such outlandish insane ways. Colonizing space would be the modern equivalent of the European colonization of the Americas. People would go about their work and set up a new world for mankind.

Mark my words. If I could apply to do this, and I got it, I would do it in a heartbeat. I would love to have the privilege to journey to a new planet.

Love the enthusiasm in the donations of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Going to mars is a bad idea.... I mean all the Russians who went there all died off

People are going to slowly go crazy and start killing each other up there, and/or just waste all of their time by having a whole bunch of sex. Calling it now.
User avatar #4 to #2 - castereleven (07/05/2014) [-]
Why would we sent people who are that mentally unstable to mars?
User avatar #5 to #4 - pacoseago (07/05/2014) [-]
After being there for like 15 years and being there for the rest of your life could be stressful.

At first, I had dyslexia and read mars in your post as wars, and I immediately thought "To win!"
User avatar #8 to #5 - castereleven (07/06/2014) [-]
I don't think i'd go insane and kill anyone. I have sympathy and a conscience to keep me from doing that.
User avatar #9 to #8 - twiztidxson (07/06/2014) [-]
Yeah but It'll only be a matter of time before they start summoning demons and **** .

If you read the article, people undergo 8 YEARS of training. Including living in confined spaces, and with others.
User avatar #30 to #29 - twiztidxson (07/06/2014) [-]
..what does that have to do with a Doom reference?
User avatar #12 to #9 - adamdavid (07/06/2014) [-]
Why is it a given that we would all start offing each other. Think about it we kind already had this experience. The colonization of the new world, people leaving for a place they had never seen knowing that odds are there not coming or the initial move from Africa in the early days of the species there had to been that first few people who said " **** it lets keep walking. Humans can explore in small groups and not kill each other, it just takes certain kinds of people. explorers, and if where out of thous then what the **** happened

People were not meant to spend their lives trapped like sardines in a box. You ever have that friend when you were a kid who you loved hanging out with, but that sleepover lasted just a little too long and you wanted to get the **** out of there? Now imagine it's a coworker, you are trapped in a tiny ass box with them, they fart, they smell bad, they never shower, and you cannot escape.

Except that you apparently can't have sex in Zero-G. It has something to do with the human male being unable to get, let alone sustain an erection in space. This was cited as a reason for not allowing a porn studio that had been willing to pay to be able to film a porno aboard the Space Shuttle's Skylab expansion.

Wait, so there's no gravity on Mars? Freaky.
User avatar #10 to #1 - bjornkrage (07/06/2014) [-]
Oh yeah, I remember that. A kickstarter to start a settlement on mars. A kickstarter.

I don't know man, I think it's kinda cool that we have a ******* station orbiting the planet where we can send people whenever we want...with rockets.

it took 24 years to get from flying 40 meters to 5800 meters, and after that the next big milestone in flight technology took 42 years to reach.
The more advanced **** gets, the harder it is to get to the next step.

if technology were to advance in such a simple and predictable way, it would take 60 years(2029) to reach the next big milestone. the logic being that you take the amount of years it took to reach the previous milestone and add 18 to it. 24+18=42. 42+18=60.
#33 to #16 - anon (07/06/2014) [-]
If you take into account Moore's Law, which applies to a certain part of technology, it wouldn't be wrong to assume that because technology gets more advanced faster, we should be able to reach our next big milestone faster.

The problem is that there isn't a good "reason" for the politicians to explore the universe. I mean, we went to the moon ONLY because USA thought that maybe the Soviets would have the high ground. When USA came first, space exploration like that basically died off. If we just find something to motivate our politicians, we'll get places very fast ;)

It's still disappointing. If things had kept up at the rate they did in the first half of the 20th Century, we would have landed on Mars by the mid-late 80s , we'd have a moon colony by 2003, and we'd probably be well on the way to establishing a mars colony in the present.

Remember all advanced technologies will not be released due to greed. Money is what is stopping humanity from excelling
User avatar #17 to #15 - alleksi (07/06/2014) [-]
******** . It is the lack of competition (read: war, conflict).

if anything, greed is what should be fueling technological advancements even further.
#18 to #17 - underthetable (07/06/2014) [-]
free energy sources, free traveling, all being held back by companies. yeah war and conflict is about money as well.

Maintenance costs are a thing, as well as construction costs. Also pollution.

Costs are necessary to limit our consumption. If we just made all that **** free, our already excessive consumption of everything would increase, which could make all of our problems even worse.

slightly depressing
