I have been in informal talks with pioneer one and they have begun accepting bitcoin! Let's all show them this is a worth while endeavor!

I just donated 5 bitcoins to Pioneer One.

http://pioneerone.tv/
http://vodo.net/pioneerone
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneer_One

I am a big fan of Pioneer One and Vodo.net. This is an alternative distribution model for creative content (film, music, literature, are, whatever) which, if we consumers support it, will end the traditional model. It works like this: a creator produces something good, makes it available as a free download, and those who like it donate something to permit creators making a living with their creative work.

Pioneer One (2 episodes so far, a third coming) has been made with tens of thousands of dollars instead of tens of millions of dollars like 24 or Lost. Of course is not yet as good as major TV series, but I found it a solid and professional work.

that intro vs the senate committee is not fiction and actually happened. that character is based off Robert Zubrin.

The real version is far more dramatic,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5uImXbhQM8

His plan named Mars Direct has been adopted by NASA for their Mars Design Reference mission by the mid 2030s and can be done within NASA's current budget over 10 years.

This is a video of how such a mission would look (Mars Direct),

Lol  great we're going to have this debate about space colonisation again.

I like the part when Zubrin says:

Quote from: Zubrin
It's like Colombus coming back from the New World and say "nah it's worthless, forget it.  Burn the ships."

Well, yes!  I'm pretty sure that, if Colombus, when arriving in America, found only a deserted dangerous place, with very little resource, only rocks and a deadly solar radiation, then I guess he would have say exactly this.

Instead, he found a luxurious country with gold everywhere and indigeous people who were offering their topless wives as a welcome gift.  No wonder he wanted to establish there!

The Colombus comparaison is just ridiculous.  To me, the first men on Mars should be compared to Tenzing and Hillary, the first men who climbed the Everest, not to Colombus.

Mars is a distant place that we know it exists, we know what it looks like, but we can't go there.

America was a place we didn't know it was there, we didn't know what it looked like, but where we were able to go.

Dreaming of establishing on Mars is just as serious as dreaming of establishing cities in Sahara or farms under deep oceans.

It is just *not a place designed to sustain human life*.

We could be building space hotels and perhaps habitable colonies within the earth orbit. Mine any asteroid that come near us and get rich(or even just the moon).

The Earth is no more designed for us then we ourselves fit to it. The difference between man and the other animals is that we don't spend millions of years evolving to adapt to our environment, we fit our environment to us. Shaping Mars for habitation is not incredulous, and places well within the bracket of extremes people experienced through history.

The issue here is your own mind, not our abilities.

Yeah, I should have written this the other way around: we are not designed to live on Mars.  Nor are we designed to live under the ocean, in Antartica or at the top of the highest mountains.  Pretending the opposite is just silly.

Yeah adapting our environnement is cool.  But there is a limit to that.  We don't live in deserts on earth.  We don't even live on water, although we technicaly could, I guess.  There is just no benefit in doing so.

Now, maybe you can talk about terraforming Mars, but this is a very different topic.  It is just basically a very, very long term investment.  Who would finance this?  Why?   Why should I work to finance something I will never personnaly benefit from??   It is just an economic non-sense.

Let me make something clear: there is no designing going on. You are the result of millions upon millions of years of trial and error. Possibly, in millions of years from now, humans will have evolved into being capable of living on Mars or other planets with no type of life supporting technology (like we are able to here on Earth, breathing oxygen and such). What's stopping evolution from enabling us to live in space, with no space suit or anything?

Well, maybe the fact that those millions of years of evolution you describe all occured ON EARTH !

Evolution is a gradual process.  Going and flourishing suddenly out of earth in a totally different environnement is something that has just never been done.

Also, evolution is contingent.  You see only what has succeeded.  For one success, many failures.  So there is no reason why humans should succeed in everything they try to achieve.

Seriously, you can try to go and live on Mars if you want, I don't mind if you do that by your own means.   But I will try my best to prevent you from funding this crazyness with tax money.

Blah, with nuclear energy, anything is possible for the next several billion years. The only problem is a political one.
