quote:Originally posted by neilepIf we can never find a way to exceed the speed of light and never find a way to shortcut our route then we will have to adopt the attitude of not having to get where we are going as soon as possible....it will have to be a generational ship.....many of our descendants will be born grow and die on these ships. Likewise, we shall have to deal with the issues raised of long term life in space, the body does not like it....Gene therapy will be used, cybernetic implants and perhaps even the ability to download ourselves into robots will all be vital to our survival.
quote:Our descendants will be as alien to us as ET would be to us today.
quote:gravity holds atmosphere?
quote:I thought it was a magnetic feild that held it .the moon has some gravity but 0 atmosphere. The moon has no magnetic field= no atmosphere.
