An interstellar civilization, one that controls several planets, is nearly impossible for nature to eradicate.
Extinction scale meteor? Let's watch it from our ******* MOON BASE!
Pandemic? Shut down the space ports and synthesize a cure using the ******** of natural resources spread across federation space.
******* Supernova? Oh I'm quacking in my waste recycling vacuum suit! Looks like we have to start terraforming again!
Space exploration is a necessary step towards becoming that civilization.
The phase in our species progression where the only threat we'll have is ourselves.
And the Covenant.

Smartfags is terraforming possible? Go.
User avatar #576 to #566 - lavitts (08/08/2012) [-]
Not yet. At least, not on a planned, planetwide scale. Technically, every change we make in our environment from large-scale deforestation to gardening is a kind of terraforming. However, something like making Mars hospitable for human life? Not in this century, I think. If someone thinks we're closer to it than that though, I'd love to hear it. Every step closer counts.

if there was an extinction scale meteor that destroyed earth and we were on the moon, then we'd be ****** too, smart one. think about it. the moon orbits the earth. the earth orbits around the suns. earth is obliterated. what the **** happens to the moon?!
User avatar #58 to #26 - jokeface (08/07/2012) [-]
Actually the moon could theoretically orbit the Sun, or get pulled into the gravitational pull of another planet, depending on the circumstances of the Earth's destruction and it's location relative to, say, Mars. But that's irrelevant anyway, because Earth is the only place in our solar system with the resources needed to support human life. If we built a base on the moon then we'd constantly have to keep it alive with things we get from Earth, like water and oxygen.

As I finished typing all that I realized I ended up reinforcing your comment. So I shall thumb you up.
User avatar #153 to #58 - nogphille ONLINE (08/08/2012) [-]
actually, an extinction scale meteor wouldn't necessarily destroy earth, it's highly likely extinction scale meteors have already collided with earth and it's still here?

also, terraforming would mean a sustainable environment, not relying on materials from earth...

Chance of something big enough to actually wipe out the rock is pretty slim, given how ************* old the rock is.

You'd have to leave Stevie Wonder in charge of the telescope to not see that coming.
User avatar #52 to #26 - trostell (08/07/2012) [-]
A meteor that could wipe out all terrestrial life on Earth would not destroy the planet. It wouldn't even need to be the size of moon to accomplish that. It would just need to be big enough to kick up a cloud of dust that blots out the sun. Three weeks in, no more plants. No plants, no food for herbivores. No food for herbivores, carnivores start killing eachother off for food. After they're dead, the fungi and bacteria starve as well, killing more forms of life on this planet, except those that live in the deep ocean where there is no sunlight. Ever.

Now, unless that meteor hit the moon first, then the Earth, the moon base would be totally fine, as Earth would still be there.

This is exactly why we haven't put a MAN on Mars. The "poor" people in this country want every cent spent on them so that they don't have to get out and get a job and pay taxes. My god, it is mankind's DESTINY to explore the stars and we can't even get a man out of our ******* gravity well because everyone wants the government to spend money on them. All the politicians have pet projects they don't have enough money for so they take money from the tax payers. All these ghetto assholes want their big ******* rims and their big screen tvs and buggies full of junk food. Here in my house we live well over the "poverty line" and we have a tv from the Nineties in our living room and we don't have a fridge full of **** to snack on all god damn day, yet we still have to pay for these lazy ***** to get fat off government subsidies! These people aren't ******* poor! I say get rid of ******* welfare and put all that money into NASA so we can actually advance our species like we should have been since we landed on the ******* Moon!
Anyway, sorry about the rant. ******* useless assholes like this just infuriate me.

Well, for one, the lawmakers who passed it didn't even have enough time to read through the whole thing. According to Nancy Pelosi, "We have to pass it before we can find out what is in it," like its a ******* xmas present or something. The you have the issues of cost, which it is going to cost billions more than they said it would, as if we aren't in enough debt. In the end, its going to force everyone onto a single payer system with ****** health care. That's only the tip of the iceberg. Another thing, as a side note, the bill transferred control of FAFSA (which pretty much controls every student loan that is out there) over to the federal government. What that has to do with healthcare is ******* beyond me. There is tons more wrong with this bill that it would take hours for me to gather the info and explain it all.
#263 to #253 - Rascal (08/08/2012) [-]
people are pretty dumb then for saying, "yah free health care." dumb ***** . like the government is gonna pull that free health care right out of their ass. how has no one done anything about it yet? the U.S. is gonna die, i swear.
#268 to #263 - solinvictus (08/08/2012) [-]
Just like the saying goes, "There's no such thing as a free lunch." someone is footing the bill somewhere down the line. Worst of all, the Supreme Court ruled it constitutional, and the vote hinged on a so called "conservative" justice (Justice Roberts) and he voted for the damn thing. >:(

should we just kill ourselves now? better yet let's just go do whatever at this point since the country is pretty much downhill right now. not like it matters anyway. i'm being serious btw. like seriously. what's the point of doing anything anymore. some dumbass gets his dumbass way and everyone dies because of that stupid **** . let's just go rob a bank already. damn
#291 to #280 - solinvictus (08/08/2012) [-]
Oh no, never give up. That is exactly what they want you to do, to roll over and let them kick you. And you don't want to go about committing crimes just because it seems hopeless. By doing so you would yield the moral high ground. No, there WILL be an America after all this. What ever that future America is is up to us to decide. So never give up.

I have now read through your complete thread, and I have to say, you are one of the most intelligent and down to earth people I have seen before. I started reading simply because an opinion actually go thumbed up on here, and I can see why. Thank you for not being like the majority of our country and actually understanding how things work. I know how ****** our country is and it's refreshing to see someone so realistically minded.
The only thing I have left to say, VIVA LA REVOLUCION!!!!
#399 to #372 - solinvictus (08/08/2012) [-]
Oh, stop it you. I'm actually quite use to getting tons of red thumbs for my opinions so this is quite a surprise. Oh, and we have a wonderful country, we're just in a really ****** situation and we have a really ****** government trying to fix it.
#406 to #399 - Rascal (08/08/2012) [-]
I would agree with that. It is time for us to do what our constitution says we are entitled to. When the government it broken it is our job to fix it. Why haven't we yet? Oh, because the second we try to we will be considered terrorists and be arrested for trying to do what the constitution allows us to. The new terrorism laws will stop us from ever being able to. They would stop us from even getting a trial in many cases and impede on our direct rights. How can our government put laws in place that completely take away what our country was founded on?
#424 to #406 - solinvictus (08/08/2012) [-]
Well, we'll see how this next election turns out. Personally I think Romney will do a good job (He damn well better do a good job). He wasn't my first choice, but he is a good business man, and that is what our economy needs. If Obama wins? Well, "The recovery of freedom is so splendid a thing that we must not shun even death when seeking to recover it." A little quote from Cicero that I found. :)
#440 to #424 - Rascal (08/08/2012) [-]
Great quote. At this point, I think Romney is just the lesser of two evils. However, I feel like no matter who makes it into office something more drastic will have to happen. It isn't something I necessarily want to see, but I don't see our government getting fixed without a bit of revolution. We have spent the past 10, nearly 11 years revolutionizing countries from the middle east, yet we are not doing anything here. We need to fix what is happening and worry about our own country. I agree that things like welfare need to leave, but we also need a complete overhaul of our government. It is time for this "wonderful" country of ours to return to its former glory and reclaim the ideals we were founded on, not the ideals that have been manipulated to what they are today. It is time for change and the time for action is coming ever nearer to us. It is time for something to happen. I will give anyone a chance. Since Obama has blown that chance, I will give Romney a chance this next time around, assuming he manages to beat out el presidente, which doesn't seem too far fetched. However, if he cannot do anything to fix it, I feel like we need to organize as a country and actually do something about it. We need to make our country somewhere that is seen as a refuge and wonderful place to live, not just for our citizens, but in the eyes of the world also. We have spent too many years being hated by the world, it is time to become a glorious nation again. We have gone from truly great leaders to the scum we call the government today. It just isn't right. I don't want to live in a country that is consistently going down the toilet and waving to the rest of the world on the way down. It is as if we don't even care enough to fix our country. The time for change is among us.

These poor fags want other people to pay for their mistakes, i say **** em, if i turn out to be poor for some reason im not going to ask for hand outs from successful people, like it's my right to have their money, no, ****** man up, stop having kids, stop buying so many drugs, get a job and be a part of society. Like ****** seriously, it took me 3 weeks to find a job, it's not as hard as these lazy ass holes say it is, you just have to put forth the effort
#279 to #266 - solinvictus (08/08/2012) [-]
Personally, I believe in helping real poor people who are down on their luck through charity. But giving them money through the government is just subsidizing their poverty and keeping them in that state (which isn't real poverty). and what makes it worse is that Obama recently did away with a bill passed in the 90's that made people on welfare look for a job (pretend to anyway) in order to continue getting their welfare checks. They don't even have to pretend anymore.

#269 to #207 - durkadurka ONLINE (08/08/2012) [-]
You ******* get it.

The politicians are happy to oblige those people because they will keep being reelcted by those people. And thus you have a system where the same politicians keep holding office and the lazy bums on their couches keep getting their checks. We have more people on food stamps than ever before and it's no accident.

I believe Ben Franklin said it best when he said “I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

We are doing a disservice to the poor by making it easy to be poor. We need to stop giving them fish and give them fishing poles.

Precisely my friend. Just shows how far back this issue goes. In fact, they were having this same problem all the way back to the Roman Republic. How little we have learned in 2000 years.

Perhaps, but Rome still lasted 500 years after the fall of the Republic. Perhaps, even if our Republic falls, another generation may rekindle the flame, so to speak. In fact, Emperor Marcus Aurelius wanted to restore the republic and may very well have if he hadn't had died in Germania.

NASA and the other scientifical institutions worldwide are trying to make the people's life easier. You have to thank NASA for having television, cell phones, being able to talk across the Atlanic and Pacific via phones, internet and many other things. Their funding should actually be increased, not lowered. You should lower the funding for the other useless things. And with that stance of yours, you'll always ask why the ancient Greeks were the most advanced civilization in European history.

I do find it hilarious that people say putting a rover on Mars is a complete waste of $2.5 billion while, as this person said, spends over a trillion dollars a year right now on its military. Why spend money expanding the horizons and knowledge of humanity when we can stay here on Earth and brutally murder each other, right?
#129 to #81 - pariahlol (08/08/2012) [-]
I agree but I also disagree. Some of the most important discoveries in history have been pressured into existence by war. War tends to be a driving force when it comes to technological advancement. While it does suck that we are killing each other, eventually war will be pioneering space as well. It's just that early phase where we don't know enough to even have war up there. But once space travel becomes legit, war will speed up the space race for sure. Still not saying it's a good thing though

People can be so ignorant sometimes. Think of it like this, earth isn't going to last forever. Its either A) we stay here and die, or B) we eventually move. Sure this isn't out problem, but think of future generations and humankind as a hole. So stop complaining about how your tax money goes to fund these projects. They're the only possible way humankind can go on living

We are in collision with another galaxy before the sun goes out. So either the world stops bitching, America starts spending more money than exploring space and we get the **** outta this galaxy and into a different one that isn't the one running into us.... Think we can do it in 4 billion years?
User avatar #67 to #64 - djequalizee (08/07/2012) [-]
hell yes, oh, and by the way, not trying to be a know it all, but the chances that we'll collide with any other stars is very low. the risk is the black holes in the middle of the galaxies. which also has a low chance of any collision. but dark matter is a different story. we don't know what it will do. its unpredictable. we don't know its properties. all we know is it exists and its everywhere. and it could have something to do with our demise.. the more you know eh? :3
User avatar #72 to #67 - garymuthafuknoak (08/08/2012) [-]
Who knows.... A lot can happen in a couple billion years. That is if we don't kill ourselves before we can even see these events. I give humanity maybe a couple thousand years seeing how we are all acting....
User avatar #78 to #72 - djequalizee (08/08/2012) [-]
yeah, we have to learn how to co-operate as a whole and not destroy our selves first. then we worry about other things destroying us. humankind is a feeble thing. struggling to survive, and for what? to explore and expand. our purpose is to survive, make something of ourselves. and until we all realize we need to work together to survive, we're at the mercy of almost anything that could go wrong
User avatar #83 to #78 - garymuthafuknoak (08/08/2012) [-]
couldn't of said it better. it's saddening to see billions of dollars go to war and not to what actually gets us places. and yet people still complain. if we could work together imagine the places it could get us to. times like this i wish we didn't have greedy people and socialism was made before capitalism. then i could see us working for the greater good, but greedy people infect both systems so it's merely a fantasy.
User avatar #92 to #83 - djequalizee (08/08/2012) [-]
Exactly. people have a hard time doing stuff for other people. they only do it for their own personal gain. also, not going to start a ********* here. but extremist Muslims/terrorists are a huge part in why we cant work together. they think their way is the only way. they hate us because a god does. they have no clue what they're doing. so they look for the next voice to tell them what to do. its pretty much impossible to get all humans to help each-other, even if the world depended on it. which is really sad honestly. i mean, everyone should just treat each-other with a mutual respect. "hey, i don't like your view on that, but its your opinion, and i respect it." <~ that could end a lot of **** before it even starts
User avatar #104 to #92 - garymuthafuknoak (08/08/2012) [-]
both sides are to be wronged. I find america want's complete dominance, which wouldn't work out if we were going to work together and the terrorists are gonna be terrorists. If you take terrorists out america wants too dominate everything if you take america out terrorists are gonna cause terror. greedy people on both sides. they **** it up for everyone.
User avatar #107 to #104 - djequalizee (08/08/2012) [-]
yeah, i see your point there. we need to just come up with ******* compromises. the problem is some terrorists don't listen to reason. ANYWAYS, it seems to me that all we have to do is make fair agreements. it seems like america is slowly digging its self a hole

Why cant we all just 			*******		 enjoy the pure fact that together as a race that we have done something so amazing as landing on mars, something that is for the most part a mystery to us and could lead to countless wonders. Cant we just enjoy that? Instead of bickering like a bunch of penny pinching ass hats.

for a few hours the night it happenned, I just sat in my computer chair, amazed.

We launched a robot 300 million miles through space and landed on the surface of mars.
Perfectly.

**** i love science.

We've also done it three times, already.

#443 to #434 - dcrazy (08/08/2012) [-]
Yes, because we know everything about something after we explore it a couple of times. That kind of thought process is like saying ok well ill read the first page of this book and put it down cause I think I know how its going to end. We should strive to explore and look at all the wonders around us and learn from our experiences, even if its nothing! At least then we would know its nothing and isn't that the greatest thing about life, trying to figure out the unknown?

Actually, I didn't say anything like what you implied. In fact, I was ecstatic to hear about the successful landing and I would personally give anything in the world to reallocate the country's resources toward technological advancement, exploration, and further understanding of our solar system. I was also distressed by the fact that I heard virtually no coverage from any news or media outlets covering the landing, itself. It flew extremely under the radar, while the Olympics (an event that has occurred every four years for literally hundreds of years) continued to dominate everyone's attention, for whatever reason. On the other hand, however, I think that people that are nothing but flabbergasted at the fact that we have performed such an amazing feat as landing a rover on another planet (when we have actually had the same thing happen at least three times, in the past) seem to just be &quot;jumping on the bandwagon&quot; (however under the radar that bandwagon may be...) of the Curiosity landing, without actually knowing a lot of the key facts about it. I merely got the impression that Mr. Anon up there was one of these uninformed &quot;Bandwagoners&quot;, and felt that I should share a bit of information about the subject matter. Sorry that I wasn't more clear.

I also apologize I thought your statement was implying that it was a pointless effort to go again since we have in the past. As for the anon I'm always against bandwagon hate since we all don't know everything and because something that was maybe pointless to you before could really interested you know, and maybe you just haven't found that out until well now.... P.S sorry if my sentences ramble or jump around or anything like that its really late where i'm at

the best policy is to keep learning about a subject once you're aware of it, theres no such thing as knowing everything no matter how much you've learned, theres always more to learn if you keep looking.
