    If you want to stir the pot of imagination and do something that is achievable in a short time frame, go back to the MOON. We haven't been there since '72. It's been 40 years!
    If you can't do that, then you aren't going to make it to Mars.

    I think it would be better phrased by asking: Would you like to die on your way to (or at) Mars?

    Says who?
  • Al B Th... metalmi... 2012/08/03 12:38:23

    Says the facts! There is no life out there. NOTHING LIVING! GET A CLUE!

    There where microbials found on the returning landers that where sent to the moon, it is speculated that there are bacteria and even viruses on every planet. I know a virus isn't actually considered living, but bacteria and small microbials are. There is life everywhere around us.
  • Al B Th... caius m... 2012/08/03 22:31:50
    Al B Thayer
    So right of you to say speculated.
  • caius m... Al B Th... 2012/08/04 19:23:18
    caius madison
    No, you are literally wrong. They did find microbials, that is microbiotic life. They did this long ago. Just because they can't invent an iPad or air conditioning, write books, drive cars, perform surgeries, or cook dinner doesn't change the fact that they are life. What you mean to say is that there is no intelligent life or other animals in the galaxy, and that is very presumptuous of you at this time.
  • Al B Th... caius m... 2012/08/04 23:31:45
    Al B Thayer
    Well I used to dream of Space when I was a kid. But it got boring real fast. Have fun with your nothingness.
  • caius m... Al B Th... 2012/08/05 00:07:24
    caius madison
    We keep worrying about things here, the biggest reason we aren't up there in space yet is because everybody is still fascinated with this planet. Personally, I'm bored of this place, I wanna go somewhere out there. To each their own I suppose.
  • Al B Th... caius m... 2012/08/05 00:33:38

    Billeons and Billeons of nothingness. Borin man.

    metalmike13- Trust No One
    Yep billions and billions of boring, narrow minded, arrogant people like yourself.
  • Al B Th... metalmi... 2012/08/05 12:57:18
    Al B Thayer
    That's Billeons. You have to spell it like Carl Sagan says it.

    Narrow minded? Gee it only took 3 or 4 post before you start the name calling. Juvenile wouldnt you say?
  • metalmi... Al B Th... 2012/08/05 21:49:02
    metalmike13- Trust No One
    Sorry, I am not Carl Sagan, so I will not speak like him. Fact is, you are narrow minded and illogical if you believe there is NOTHING in the universe but us pitiful humans.
  • Al B Th... metalmi... 2012/08/06 00:14:57
    Al B Thayer
    Well when you find it just let me know. :)

    Pitiful humans were created by God because He loves us.
  • metalmi... Al B Th... 2012/08/06 01:53:07
    metalmike13- Trust No One
    Now the truth comes out. You deny any possibility of life in the universe because that would disprove your mythical god.

    Oh and your god loves no one for he does not exist. Also according to your mythical god, he will NOT forgive those who do not blindly accept him. Your god also does not love anyone who is of a different religion. Your mythical gods, love about .000000001% of the population of this planet.

    And you think your god created this whole entire universe just for us? You are arrogant and deluded. Keep drinking the kool aid.
  • Al B Th... metalmi... 2012/08/06 02:27:00
    Al B Thayer
    You win.
  • chas Al B Th... 2012/08/04 03:24:11
    AMEN !!!
  • metalmi... Al B Th... 2012/08/05 05:10:21
    metalmike13- Trust No One
    So you are so arrogant to think that the universe is ALL just for us? Really? That has to be intelligent life out there because there is certainly none here on earth.

    Oh and you have no facts there is not life in the universe, only your arrogance. beam me up scotty beam me up scotty beam me up scotty
  • chas metalmi... 2012/08/04 03:23:42
    King Chas and biology. Inhospitable atmospheres & planets are TOXIC, without question for human life. Its proven. The air and water on this planet EARTH is very clean, compared to other planets/galaxies.
  • metalmi... chas 2012/08/05 05:14:02
    metalmike13- Trust No One
    Oh really? Have you been to all of them? No? Do you know everything about the universe? No? Are you so arrogant to think this great big universe is just for us? Yes you are.

    It is litterally next to impossible that we will not find a suitable new "Earth". Getting to this place, however, is not yet possible. I feel your pain....
  • metalmi... caius m... 2012/08/07 02:13:06
    metalmike13- Trust No One
    No it is not possible yet to get there. With so many backward people who still think we are the center of the universe, the be all and end all, it will be a very long time.
