Hello

I'm happy I found this place and very sure I'm in the company of some very brilliant people.

I'm the webmaster of cygo.com, around since 1999, focused on science, astronomy, space development (yes, like land development except it's space), mining asteroids, and assisting entreprenuers and going industrialists in setting up businesses in space.   This also addresses the concerns of environmentalists, U.N. space law, etc. 

There are many challenges ahead.

The ignorance displayed by so many adherents to religion alarms me and I have to wonder how we protect the hull of the ship from these people. 

Some technocracy seems to be an essential requirement for future survival.

 

Anyway, thanks for letting me in and I hope can contribute more than a sermon.

 

LOL

Welcome.It's you science

Welcome.

It's you science guys that make self indulgent asshats like me look good. So snap to it and post something "sciencey" so I can regurgitate it on facebook and coerce easily led, morally casual women with daddy issues to show their admiration in that special way that only a gal with bullemia and low self esteem can.

I'll hop over to your site now... The truth is i wished my brain worked like that... I suffer from science envy. It may be true that the site needs more people like you... but it's also true that the world does too...

I'm posting from the beautiful Fingerlakes in upstate New York.  The Sci-fi writer, Rod Serling, often used the names of the towns around here in his stories.

No.

Just that a spacecraft's hull, although likely to be meters thick (not like the aluminum cans of today), is subject to internal forces (ie. human) that could compromise its integrity, similar to a submarine except the inside is pushing out rather than the outside pushing in.

Welcom cygo.  Good to have

Welcom cygo.  Good to have you here.  The more science freaks we have, the better.

 

Perhaps you would do me a favor?

 

I signed up for your forum but it seems that my user name is large enough that it flows over the first line of any post.  Would you please change it to AIGS   ?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

AIGS

From Africa, humans have spread out across the earth.  The "natural habitat" has become, simply, any place you can make live-able.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

That was very well said.  In many ways, Space is actually a much better habitat than a planet- more controlled conditions, more readily available energy (from solar, and environmental protester free fission)- if we can just get the resources up there to build without gravitational drag.
