It may come as a surprise, but there are actually honest people out there who want to deliver what they promise. They are actually, believe it or not, the majority of businesspeople out there.
I know some pretty disillusioned contributors to Kickstarter projects that would say otherwise.
Whereas I, who (amusingly enough, perhaps) have been a copy editor, had no trouble at all reading your post. But I also have little trouble reading text in a mirror, or letters that are upside-down. That seems to hint that this may be a cognitive thing, and for some people significant whitespace works and for some people it just doesn't and it won't, and the endless arguing about it might be pointless.
Perl forever! You can write it, and afterward you won't even be able to edit it.
but what are the chances of finding a good vintage of scotch to go with all of this breaded goodness they are going to be having up there?
Alcohol is definitely going to space. Ballantine's zero-gravity glass is made in cooperation with something called the Open Space Agency, which also has a design for an automated Dobsonian telescope. Ardbeg is going to space. And a vacuum still is an old science-fiction trope.
Well, for starters, LinkedIn only leaked data for around 6 million accounts. Yahoo leaked data for half a billion accounts. Also, considering that people use Yahoo for their personal email and to track their finances, the data on Yahoo was potentially much more sensitive than anything on LinkedIn.
Musk himself said he is focused on building the transportation infrastucture, not the colony itself. He is leaving that to others and basically inviting people with resources and ideas to join in.
Ah, I see. So we can think of it as kind of a Hyperloop to Mars.
And when you read the comments on the first story, the first posts will be about the unthawed brains of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The second story will have 400 comments, but all of them will be shitposting by the GNAA AI.
Meh! Not for me though- I will stay on green-green earth; however, I understand the motivation for those who are more adventurous than you and I. Most people won't want to leave, but plenty will.
Just look at the number of people who are willing to risk their lives to climb Mount Everest. And nobody's planning to live there.
I was curious if they were bringing a significant enough quantity of eggs to support this breading program. Breading isn't any good without a binder.
This Official NASA Research is studying the egg problem.
There is also a proposal to import green cheese from the Moon.
Out of several tens of billions of humans, only a fraction have not yet died, and of those who died, only a small percent of disputed cases indicate recovery.
On the contrary, I have never died before and rumors that I would do so are spread by fact-checkers of the liberal press and corrupt global warming scientists.
I like the part in the SpaceX video where the rocket lands, and the door opens on magnificent desolation. This is artistic license. Obviously the material for a habitat would precede the arrival of people.
But yes, a first-try planetary colony won't necessarily work. Getting there is dangerous, and once you're there being able to continue to provide the population with air, water, food, shelter, and energy is going to have significant risks of lethal failures.
If all else fails, lower your standards.
