I actually thought it was a fairly interesting article.

that was good read. the part about 'generational' space exploration was interesting, sending up a small 'society' so they can procreate during the long voyage. that would be so weird to be born on a space ship, never see earth and yet know that you're on the most important mission in human history.

you would get to earth, and be like "this place is weird" or something cause you would be used to being in space, assuming you were up there for a number of years before you came to earth.

"The invisible pits of gravity have no surface, but rather a spherical "event horizon," which can be several miles across. Once inside the event horizon, light and matter cannot escape -- hence the invisibility. At the center of a black hole is a point called a singularity, where matter is crushed to infinite density. Space and time are infinitely curved. Things are just plain weird."

Sounds like my back yard!

the article said that those people born in space would never return to earth (how could they feasibly?). that would just be so weird to be removed from earth, knowing that you among will be the 1st generation to colonize a new planet; a whole new civilization starts with you.

that's heavy, i don't think i could handle that....

that would be weird its like "okay, i'm going out to space, starting a new generation and am gonna die out here."

But what i was thinking was, would if the new generation of kids Doesn't want to do the work, and get back to earth, or something like that. There could be so many problems with doing that. But that is a relaly cool article, i love learning about space.

wouldn't that be insane if the 1st generation born in space revolted and destroyed the ship? like "fuck this, i didn't sign on for this shit! i want to chill out on the beach and smoke a bowl, not be trapped in space FOREVER!"

what we really need are those sleep chambers from Alien, that's the only way to travel if you axe me.

haha, yeah. Or would if the whole crew gets in a big fight...cause obviously when you are with a bunch of people for like 43 years (i think it said it would take about that to get to the closest star or whatever, but thats the fastest so far...could go lots slower) there will definately be people who don't like/hate other people and "groups" or whatever will form and would if a big fight happens. And it becames like war on a ship in space.

yeah, even if they selected the crew based on the fact that everybody got along well, after 43 years im sure either A) everybody would be dead due to 'spaceship war 2087', or B) they would get to the new planet and instantly start fighting eachother for the best territory since they have no desire to share.

maybe they should purposely include a member that everybody else hates, a punching bag if you will. that would allow the other members to relieve their tension :nutkick: as a group and also provide something to bond over.  haha, boy would i hate to be that guy though :kodama:

haha, good post!

But yeah, in the "human nature" of course after 43 years you are gonna get sick of everyone you are "forced" to be with. And the people you don't hate are obviously "special" or whatever to you, but you will get sick of so many people no matter what. They will need to send with them multiple things for them all to bond over so that they have multiple things to relate to and talk about similarly to eachother.

They should just send up POUNDS and POUNDS of pot and some mushrooms and LSD and have them grow some pot so they can all kick back and relax every so often. Nothing like getting stoned and/or tripping in space. think of tripping in space and floating...oh dear lord that would be the most wonderful trip ever!

i know...and if things start getting tense, have the person go into a "trip room" which is decked out with TV's, vcr/dvd player for movies, really cool posters, colorful painted room, comfy couches/chairs, fridge of food/drinks, random things to play with. ANd have them eat some mushies or take some LSD and while they are waiting for the trip to come, they can smoke a joint/blunt/bowl/bong whatever they want. And let them kick it for a while.

And have multiple rooms for multiple people so 2 people who dislike eachother aren't in the same room so they wouldn't induce a bad/scary/violent trip or anything.

in your space ship you could, cause they don't wear their helmets in the ship. Outside you can't. Or they could just make food with pot.

Thank you! I just read that article and I have achieved knowledge of the depth of the "universe." (which is actually much bigger than what we perceive our universe to be when we speak of it). Thanks again.


Awesome link, black holes rule.
