The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

Well before NASA started selling out to private investors (well... majorly that is)... the Orion/Ares mission for 2020 was planned. I do not know what has happened to it as of now tho. Rest assured tho... it will be a private industry that stakes its flag in Mars... not a nation.

I dunno... Think it's still running... Isn't that why they keep the ISS going? Like, besides all the general research...
But naw, yeah... I really hope a private industry gets to Mars before any one nation can... Cause then it's gonna be hell... That one nation proudly declaring ownership of Mars and starting to act all 'fuck you guys, I got Mars'... If not the private sector, at least let it be something of a united attempt...

Nope... Obama cancelled it... like the ass wipe he is... -__-

It's all in the hands of the private sector now...

Oh... Well... The economy being as it is, I guess we need to focus on our planet before we try and get another one to ruin and exploit...

Yeah because spending billions of dollars that will only increase the deficit is really a good idea.

And besides the shuttle program was scrapped because after Columbia and Challenger we realized that shuttles were not as safe as we once believed and too expensive too really be as safe and as effective as unmanned exploration.

The shuttle program and other NASA programs will return as long as Romney is not elected.

(Not I am not saying reelect Obama just don't elect Romney.)

NASA hardly got money to begin with! On top of which manned missions to space are needed for several studies on cancer and other ailments. No it was always about money and politics... not safety... it's never been about safety. The shuttle program is done regardless of who becomes president. NASA already works with a bunch of private companies who will see any further progress done. I suppose it's not all bad that Obama closed the program tho. The economy... and it moves space exploration to the private sector... where it will gain competition once again... and thus a real effort.

Actually our population isn't exploding as much as people think... fertility rates in Europe are going down drastically, Russia is experiencing low fertility rates, and America is experiencing a decline in births.

Riiight... Cause setting up an outpost on Titan, a moon that has pretty much every kind of mineral and ore on the periodic table, cannot possibly lead to any good...

And yes... The privatization of the space race is what's gonna make a difference...

How are you going to mine it or bring it back to earth? How would the profit of mining the minerals even begin to offset the cost?

Also the life on titan might disagree with your business venture.

Where is the profit?

Economics 101 supply and demand... there will always be a demand for research and development... there will always be a demand for expansion... there will always be a demand for more materials and resources... etc. etc. etc. Space exploration offers all of this... and more...

Meat, you obviously lack the knowledge of how market economics work...

How would we mine the ore? Well, if not manned outposts, then robots... There's already several possible designs for one... How do we bring it back to Earth? Same way we got the mining equipment (and people) there... Get an orbiting base going round the planet, the mining robot would then send what it gets to there and it then gets shuttled (not necessarily by a shuttle) back Earth-way...

And how would the profit offset the cost? Oh OK... So I guess large-scale mining of a place where we do not need to worry about keeping the environment clean or the consequences to the population is pointless to you...
There's lots of minerals and ore there that's not commonly found on Earth, that alone is worth the effort...
Plus, who said anything about prolonged mining? We could just send a robot there to mine minerals we need for other projects...

No. Galactic expansion is long overdue.
