You're damn right I'm jealous, I'm not going to lie about that, if personal stuff didn't happen in my life I would probably flying Airforce black projects.

But there are some in our society that act lazy or uninspired concerning interstellar travel.
Wait long times, as the position they holds, thats impossible; that will never happen, thats a long time off, thats why they call it science fiction etc.
Uninspired and lazy!

Hmmm sure I am, in some way. But then again I know I won't be doing it, even if that is available for me. A journey like that wwould be my lifetime, and I know my love will not be going, even if she can.

On the other hand, Humans are really not ready for space travel, even if we have the technology. Think about it. On the rare occasion that we would meet another sentient species... *cough cough*

I mean, lets hope that what whatever species we met would be way more advance than us, or I am darn sure we would pretty much beat the daylight out of them and enslave/exploit them, if they are lucky enough not to get a total genocide. Ordos Xenos...

But practically, is it worth it to pull out the great adventure, when many of the planets on this little solar system is not even well explored? Hack, we did not even finish exploring deep oceans yet.

The readiness of socitey respect ot interstellar travel depends on this relation readiness~= reluctance/money x laziness if it cost more money or we give up too easily because it is to hard a task(laziness) we are not ready now or ever.
More reluctance we have; not give up on a hard task or worry about money issue, the more ready we are.

Well, if that happen we would have a interstellar war on our hands.

The only spheres I believe that is worth exploring in this star system is Jupiter's moons Europa and Callisto (maybe a global ocean underneath their crust), Saturn's moon Titan( it's the only moon that has a thick atmosphere and maybe have life under it's surface, of unknown composition).

Ahhh... I've missed this thread.



I wonder what has happened in the research on these matters in the intervening months since this thread was abandoned. (It seems that the thread-starter and greatest advocate of these theories has been banned... so it's unlikely we'll get any kind of answer.)

I re-read this one today,.. with all the extra perspective of the world economy currently in near free-fall... and the fact that Space Exploration is probably destined to take a bit of a back seat for a few years until the world governments can shore up the hemorrhaging financial markets.

It seems to me that we have almost certainly added several years (if not decades...) to being able to fund the kind of manned exploration of even our own solar system that it would take to prepare for any kind of mass colonization of the stars.

Reality strikes again...
