Yes, pretty much true. Not to mention a steady supply of energy in the near-absolute-zero temperatures of space. That energy source would have to last centuries. 
It's a common theme in science fiction, but migrating to planets beyond our solar system will be a lot more complicated and difficult than you might imagine

I think it's pretty clear that the long, slow, multigenerational approach won't work. Either find a way to speed things up to no more than a decade, or put everyone to sleep for the voyage, or invent a new species.

Quite accurate, actually. 
 
Cow economics
  
SOCIALISM
You have 2 cows.
You give one to your neighbour.

COMMUNISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you some milk.

FASCISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots you.

BUREAUCRATISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away…

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income.

SURREALISM
You have two giraffes.
The government requires you to take harmonica lessons

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

ENRON VENTURE CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows.
The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company.
The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.
You sell one cow to buy a new president of the ffice, leaving you with nine cows.
No balance sheet provided with the release.
The public then buys your bull.

A FRENCH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market it worldwide.

A GERMAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows, but you don't know where they are.
You decide to have lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You count them and learn you have five cows.
You count them again and learn you have 42 cows.
You count them again and learn you have 2 cows.
You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

A SWISS CORPORATION
You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you.
You charge the owners for storing them.

A CHINESE CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You have 300 people milking them.
You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity.
You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You worship them.

A BRITISH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Both are mad.

AN IRAQI CORPORATION
Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.
You tell them that you have none.
No-one believes you, so they bomb the ** out of you and invade your country.
You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of Democracy…

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Business seems pretty good.
You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

Cool project where some guys did a scale model of the solar system in the desert. 
A team of space fans built a scale model of the solar system with planetary orbits included in a Nevada desert.

Good grief, do our tax dollars actually pay for this kind of nanny-state harassment? 
If a snack bar has fruits, nuts, fiber, protein, fiber, and antioxidants, is it healthy? Apparently not if it also has 5 grams of saturated fat.

Yep. Can't let this happen. 
It's a fight over the future of high-tech surveillance, the trust infrastructure undergirding the global software ecosystem, and how far technology companies and software developers can be conscripted as unwilling suppliers of hacking tools for governments.

Thanks, I was hoping this would happen.
 
It’s time for someone to tell the truth about the challenges we face. That’s why I’m running for President – and doing my best to put liberty, smaller government and common sense foreign policy on the national stage as alternatives to the tired policies of the “major” parties.

Yes, but only because science has turned into a religion that the political left is using to advance the power of big government.

This shouldn't be this hard. But I guess it's an an improvement over Galileo's era.

I agree that the proposed solutions are pretty lame. But that's not a good reason to deny the data. No matter the cause, there is a serious problem that needs to be dealt with in a rational way. I'm sure people could come up with better solutions if they'd stop the petty bickering.
