      +Ethan Hayden the effect of 1/6 gravity on human physiology, radiation, micrometeorites, no water, vacuum, drastic temperature extremes, incredibly high cost to get even a small amount of mass there (major problem), etc, etc.
      If you look at films from the 50's they presented some of the same wildly optimistic visions of the future with flying cars, robots catering to your every whim, etc.
      Much more likely is humanity destroying itself or launching itself back into the dark ages.
      Ever hear of a Crisper? Now combine that with religious idiots that don't mind blowing themselfs up and you have a recipe for the end.
      Have a good weekend!

    I feel we should unify as a planet first before colonising other planets. With a unified earth, we can treat solar colonies as states, whilst having minor law differences still a part of a united community.

      Eric Lee Lol, says a westener! The block that nuked Japan is talking about not working towards self destruction ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
      How high was your horse then?
      I assume the west built the Atomic bomb to keep life and people on earth safe 😂😂
      Don't be such an imbecile and trow out accusations without basis.
      War happens when one side does not want to compromise, in this case the west, so if we do get extinct, you can only blame yourself ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
      Have a great day, and get informed, apparently you don't know very well what's going on this little rock we live on. Or maybe don't, might be better for you to die in ignorance when the nuke lands, or maybe not 🤔🤔 hard to say!

      The fuck is your problem? Are you really such a rightist twat that war is the only option for you? Come the fuck on, as if you’re smarter than everyone else. I don’t believe anyone would be ignorant enough to think humans are actively working toward their own destruction, but apparently retards like you exist. How high does your fucking horse have to be?

    • Sandy Baggy
      Sandy Baggy 2 години тому

      Eric Lee do you even watch news? If so are you blind to all the raising tensions in the world? Cooperation is nearly impossible at this point, at best, each of the superpower countries will have it's own base.
      If you recall in history, basically all colonies at some point got independence through violence or treaties, and since right now we're basically in Columbus style space era, what do you think will our "colonies" do when they're well established, prospering and we are shipping most of the stuff they produce back to earth? You have to also take into account:
      And the list keeps going, let's assume one planet colonized by the Chinese for some reason is under the US control, what do you think will they do when US flies it's flags above their homes, and brings is the western stuff? Remember that once this colonization business starts we're basically back to the wild west. The channel sugar coats a lot of stuff.
      Like humans are perfect and flawless, like we don't have cultural, political, and religious affiliations, come on! We all know that's not how it works!
      We sent troops to the middle East to kill them just because they believed in Alah, as you can see it doesn't take much for humans to fight each other, and that's without salting it with the greed variable.

      I shall give you $10 in the future should you prove to be correct within-well, let’s say 30 years. The years up to 2059, that’s plenty of time for our 2024 astronauts to lose their goddamn minds.
      Really, no strings attached. (UAclips comments are not legally binding, so if I have to sign something I will.)

      Eric Lee Wether you accept it ir not that's your problem, but internation rivalry is a thing, and this is how we are! What makes you think that it will for some miracle change in the future? As I said, don't be naive. It's always been "us" and "them" no matter how hard you want it to be different, it will always be like this, accept it, it will hurt less ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
      And according to you, caring for your nation well being is despising life and existence 🤔
      Solid logic mate 👍👌
