    Settling on the Moon

    Colonizing a celestial body, like exploring space, is an aspect of our survival as a living organism. We understand the life cycle of stars, and we know that our star will eventually die. Our common goal must be to gain the ability to at some point leave and colonize other star systems with...

    Settling on the Moon

    It's already been said that space exploration should be our ultimate goal because we understand how limited the life of our home planet is.

    Settling on the Moon

    What's wrong with the old H.G. Wells idea of shooting things for a cannon? If the cannon is a magnetic rail cannon.

    Is there a way to delete a topic?

    Last time you tried to insult me and remove my post I got it back, Evo. This isn't the first time I've experienced and admin abuse their abilities on these forums. I was insulted and responded to said insult. The thread is not off topic if the same ideas of the original poster has connections...

    Is there a way to delete a topic?

    Yet again the point is missed. My misuse of a fictional term is not the issue. Admin opinion used to determine the course of a thread is not a healthy practice for a free flowing environment of thoughts, ideas, and scientific fact.

    NASA NASA: We're sending humans to Mars!

    Excellent points. What about the feasibility of a magnetic rail system for achieving escape velocity? Also I wasn't aware we had the technology to simulate the conditions of different celestial bodies. I can't help but think saying the data collected from a experiment on our planet would always...

    Is there a way to delete a topic?

    I again need a thread unlocked and if possible a post undeleted. I was unaware we referred to Earth as a "biosphere". I responded to an insult with unkind words, and as a result an admin closed the thread. I think the OP has the right idea about an explosion. If combined properly it's almost...

    Planetary collisions

    Does someone else remember a program made to simulate the potential outcome of the collisions of celestial objects?

    Shooting blocks of Uranium from planet to planet

    I think a better way to have said that is a sub surface pressure. The atmosphere of an M class planet has several layers. We live in one of them. Oxygen is a liquid at another. Iron and nickel are liquid at others, ect. I guess we name the atmospheres based on their characteristics, which seems...

    Shooting blocks of Uranium from planet to planet

    If what he's proposing is done closer to the center of the planet. The effects of fusion and fission devices in subsurface atmospheres is, I'm sure, a closely guarded secret. The biggest fear from uranium sounds like fallout, but if the gravity of a planet is great enough wouldn't it pull the...

    Shooting blocks of Uranium from planet to planet

    The goal is to make a molten metal core that generates a magnetic field similar to that on Earth. The actual thought I had was to shoot bullets from a rail gun into the moon comprised of nickel and iron. I'm too tired right now to confirm but if memory serves that's what we've proven the...

    Alternate CPR technique

    It's been known for some time that standard CPR can cause damage.

    Alternate CPR technique

    I was aware of this after watching a combat medic attempt to revive a wounded soldier. The trauma/damage caused by the bullet may have been repairable if there was another way to keep his blood flowing and providing oxygen to the brain until he could be stabilized. From what I saw the standard...

    NASA NASA: We're sending humans to Mars!

    I think we need to stop exploring and start building. There are experiments that need to be done off world for a better understanding of the physics of our universe. All of the science behind building life some where other than Earth is hypothetical until we actually start trying. We will most...

    Shooting blocks of Uranium from planet to planet

    I'm glad I found a discussion already answering my questions. If rather than shooting the uranium at the surface a hole was bore to the center of the of the planet. After which the uranium could be inserted. My thoughts were of using a rail run style projectile into the Moon. The object...
