I found this movie on YouTube. It's in black and white. I thought it would be another B rated movie about green men from Mars. It was not. A scientist played by Peter Graves, AKA original Mission Impossible guy, establishes communication with an advanced race of beings on Mars. Communication is done with radio signals....

Good point. Great question. We just look for the most “likely” places life might develop. Interestingly, though, there are lifeforms like the ones you describe here on Planet Earth! You can find these lifeforms in Chile, specifically the Atacama desert. This place is burning hot and has had no significant rainfall in at least 250 years. According to express.co.uk “While...

It’s too late for that. Mars maybe did have a “livable” or as you might say “Earth-like” atmosphere one time, long ago. That time is past. It would never again happen without human assistance. It’s why we still search to see if any microbes or life of any kind ever existed there. So far, nothing.
This rather large SpaceX rocket is called the Falcon Heavy. Inside is the automobile below, which SpaceX hopes to launch in orbit around Mars with a flight schedule February 6, 2018 (assuming it doesn't blow up on the launchpad). You just can't make this stuff up. The automobile, which belongs to the founder of SpaceX... Continue Reading →
This hypothetical question doesn’t take the harsh realities described below. You begin by saying planetary exploration to Mars will bring new policies. Maybe here on Earth, like what we have in Antarctica, for Mars. The Chinese are likely the first ones to send a manned mission. In my pessimistic and realist point of view, Mars... Continue Reading →
Could we specialize in terraformation? It would be nice. Unfortunately, focused or not, terraforming is not realistic. Look at Mars. The problem is not creating an atmosphere. The problem is keeping it and protecting people there from dangerous rays from the sun. You see, Mars has no organized magnetic North or South. Without a magnetic... Continue Reading →
In my opinion, hopefully neither place because there is no valuable reason for humans other than our robots to establish a presence in either place. Robots are expendable and you don’t have to bring them back. They can transmit what they find. Both are dead planets. Both have no reason to settle there.
Okay. I admit it. I confess. This is a weird blog. It's my blog and I post whatever I want on it and I get, for some reason, a whole lot of traffic. I post about weird stuff. Space. Occasionally politics. Life and death stuff. Philosophy. Linux. Weird stuff. At all times of the day.... Continue Reading →
Not very big! It would just have to be natural. Not made by man! And it wouldn’t have to be there for very long either. Just long enough for it to be in orbit. The astronomical community doesn’t have a definition for moon other than it has to be a natural object. Thus captured asteroids... Continue Reading →
