    HD footage of launch sequences and informative commentary. Amazing footage.


    There isn't a thread related to general things outside and inside of our atmosphere space related so I hope you don't mind in me creating one.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    It's like a Fruit magnet :(

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    And that is why I created this thread because that is a thread for live happenings, this one is for general interests astronomy wise.

    You better watch out.

    I'm gonna put on an iron shirt, and chase Satan out of Earth. I'm gonna send him to Outer Space, to find another race.

    Space is pretty big, it's pretty much the biggest thing in the world - ever

    Space is big. Really big. You just wonít believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think itís a long way down the road to the chemistís, but thatís just peanuts to space.

    Yes, I know its big. But what is on the other side. If you get to the edge and peer over, what do you see? I thought about this, and I think you would see a sort of blue hazyness.

    So nasa is building a new capsule and rocket to eventually go to the moon and mars, but like in the apollo days they first want to test their shit out without actually slowing down and landing. So they've come up with this asteroid intercept mission. If nothing else, it's a pretty cgi-movie.

    Yes he is. He could be a little less patronising when explaining things to people, which would be nice :)

    To be fair, the people he's explaining this stuff do don't have the faintest idea about any of this crap.

    Iif evolution is largely convergent and we where to see an exoplanet similar to earth we are more likely to encounter dinosaurs then any advanced civilisation

    Makes sense I guess. It took three mass extinction events to get rid of the dinosaurs, which makes them pretty hard in my book. I dunno how common extinction events are for sure, but I guess if we started again odds are there'd still be some dinosaurs around today (apart from birds).

    A planet or two (billion) full of alien dinosaurs sounds pretty cool to me

    Still doesn't make sense. It implies that we're the oldest planet around, which is probably not true.

    You simply have to look at the amount of time the dinosaurs, as a family have been around -200 million- years compared to humans. Also try and imagine what our evolutionary successors would be like million years down the line. Either extinct, not living on not living on Earth or with no material bodies. Its an argument I came across this wonderful book

    I think unguided evolution is over for humans. We will start to be able to engineer ourselves far faster than any natural evolutionary processes. Of course maybe that is still part of natural evolution as it's our evolved brains that will be driving things.

    Anyway in short we are going to end up with lasers beams and shit in our arms.

    I can certainly imagine Tesco's employee's have those scanners built into them. Who needs a till when they can just look at a bar code and make the beep sound.

    Tesco got so big by leveraging big data collected with clubcards to optimise the whole supply chain. Basically the same thing Walmart did in the 90's
