but the moon itself believed to have been formed from a collision of a planet with the mass that became the earth. in that model, the reason why composition would be uneven as the moon tidal lock with one side facing the earth that in fact due to earth's gravity acting on object of uneven composition.
words like "communist" and "capitalist" and "socialist" are those of theory, in practice all those systems have privileged elite at top of the pyramid who take away opportunity and rights of others to continue their power, all those have ethnic or other distinct groups that are more privileged, and "some are more equal than others" as the joke goes.
That was certainly interesting
We get most our useful metals from "un-oxidising" them, so I think it rather silly to say in 10,000 we won't have any because they will be "oxidised". The crust of the earth is over 20 miles thick and full of nifty useful oxides we can exploit for thousands of years. We have millenia of fossil fuel supply (unfortunately), plenty of coal. In space there is an infinite supply of metal ore and the energy to refine them. We've known how to smelt ores for thousands of years, so I don't see any barrier to any sentient species to make metal in any future age. It can even be done with the most primative of application of concentrated solar power.
The only mass deaths by influenza were caused by secondary infection, not the virus itself (e.g. spanish flu), so I don't think viral plague need be a fear other than a tailored biological warfare agent. Antibiotic resistance thus far has been only a very minor nuisance to be any real threat, more hype than reality. In fact, most the problem seems to be lack of sanitary conditions at our hospitals, Re-architecting our hospitals and methods of care so killing supergerms outside the body can be done with powerful chemicals is an easy fix
As for the long haul,
Raccoons? they've been around for 37 million years. But human to ape happened much faster. Maybe a sentient whale species will go onto land, or another ape species comes forward
Maybe your idea of a "social conscience" isn't the same as mine. For first world inhabitants, mine has the concepts of being responsible, self-reliant, taking advantage of opportunity and working hard so as not to be a burden on society. Maybe you think such attitudes are being a "cunt", but I call them good old fashioned values.
you are of mixed racial ancestry, you're too late
if you don't believe me, tell my what regions each of your grandparent are from, and I will tell you of the racial mixing proven by genetic analysis
Age often brings more conservative values. Slashdotters are getting older. Some of us always have had conservative values on many issues.
comets are icy and have tails when close to sun due to outgassing.
Asteroids (minor planets that are stony, metallic, or carbon compound based) can have tails for various reasons, some covered in the article.

I really wonder about people that complain google is unusable and never gives them that for which they are searching. are they lazy? uncreative? semiliterate? Maybe a well constructed online test could discern the truth.
where's my *DOOM*??? we can't even get a 1 mile asteroid to come closer than 2.4 times the earth-moon distance in the forseeable future. (1997 XF11 in 2028)
No, you are confused. The photoelectric effect ejects an election. Altering bandgap can be done without ejecting electron.
China is not a military threat to the U.S. Look at their arsenal, it is tiny, because China is smart enough not to waste money. Just enough nuclear weapons to ensure no one nukes them, just enough navy and air force to be a regional power. No one can invade them for their army is huge.
you are just posting competing hypothesis.
Linus refined his work over time, and yes had the technical engineering smarts to selectively recognize and incorporate good contributions. Linux scales from smart phones and appliances to supercomputing clusters, due in no small part to Linus' abilities.
you don't do kernel or system programming, do you? your "examples" are silly, sound lime you are just a software/os installer
no, this is not the photoelectric effect. the "bandgap" is range of energy levels where no electron exists. Thisproperty separates insulators, semiconductors and conductors. They are altering the bandgap with polarization of light
having done a bit of different kinds of math, seen Captial X used as random unknown variable, a set, and a matrix
