Exactly what I've been waiting for.
 
#SpaceVR is going to take all of us civilians to space, without exponential costs or tough training. Space is now down here.

Elon Musk plans to land the first men on Mars around 2026. A billion people on Earth can arrive on the red planet at the same time, thanks to SpaceVR.

It's Crater-palooza on Dwarf Planet Ceres (New Photo) ... "A new photo from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows the battered surface of the dwarf planet Ceres in unprecedented detail.

Dawn captured the image on May 23, when the probe was just 3,200 miles (5,100 kilometers) from Ceres. The photo's resolution is about 1,600 feet (480 meters) per pixel, scientists said.

"The view shows numerous secondary craters, formed by the re-impact of debris strewn from larger impact sites. Smaller surface details like this are becoming visible with increasing clarity as Dawn spirals lower in its campaign to map Ceres," NASA officials wrote in an image description today (May 28). ..."

Oddly enough, I think cities floating in Venus's atmosphere will be more practical long term colonies than on the Moon or Mars. The problem is gravity. 

The Moon's gravity is definitely too low for proper human birth and development; and I'd bet that Mars's gravity is also too low. Barring unlikely eugenic practices in the colonies, or similarly problematic genetic experimentation, I doubt colonies in such low gravity will be viable. 

However, Venus both has appropriate gravity, and at a level where the atmosphere is around Earth pressure, has roughly Earth temperature.

It's science fiction, but I loved the Red Mars/Green Mars/Blue Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. It had both terraforming and clandestine genetic engineering as a solution to colonizing Mars.

+Juana Leilani I think it may be a still from a 3-D interactive computer image. An image search of it lead me to a French company named Arcus, who's name is attached to the credit given for the image. Sorry, thought it looked a bit too processed, as well.

Mark your calendars for next week's award ceremony.
Michael Interbartolo originally shared to Space:
 
Next week watch the Virtual awards ceremony for Humans in Space Art Video Challenge winners
NASA will host a virtual awards ceremony at 11:30 a.m. CDT June 4 to honor winners of the 2014 Humans in Space Art Video Challenge. Join the conversation as NASA astronaut Nicole Stott and celebrity judges host this live Google+ Hangout.

The top five winning videos will be screened, and the messages each conveys about the future of space will be discussed. How each film uses creative techniques to communicate ideas also will be discussed.

build a pelter panel where the heating and cools surfaces are warped to the point that they are on perpendicular surfaces.

by building a uniform formation of depressions across the surface area, all sides cooling all surfaces parallel with the fuselage heating.... perhaps the heat generated by friction would induce the revers effect of causing cooling in the groves that then will for turbulence that causes the hot surfaces to cool and keeps a small buffer zone of cool air between the vessel and the outside world.

"Journey to Space" - a #3D movie experience at +The Museum of Flight in #Seattle !

The film recalls the glorious days of the space shuttle, reminds us that the space program did not end with the end of the shuttle flights in 2011, and vividly tells the exciting story of the next chapter of space exploration.

Learn more about the film and the Museum: http://www.museumofflight.org   #avgeek   #aviation   #space   #spaceshuttle   #DoSeattle

Have a space or astronomy question? Ask it here!

Well, I got the virtual evil eye from +Fraser Cain for talking too much this week, so I'm sure there are plenty of questions we didn't get a chance to answer :) Ask away!

+Morgan Rehnberg​ well I'm always getting stumped not being able to prove a negative ("prove it doesn't exist"), which is how to cookie crumbles.

Ugh.... Moving in, could you maybe talk about how scientific discoveries are made and shared, specifically how hard it would be to keep quiet an inhabited planet that can sometimes be viewed by the naked eye and is constantly getting closer to the earth.




If this isn't your wheelhouse, no worries

I guess it would be just another "what if" scenario that continue to stimulate people's minds. Like different bees all from the same hive, and more are born all the time.
Still, they are interesting and thought provoking.

The space exploration program should be privatized. It would give much more for funding and competition for the industry, but I am sure there would be drawbacks. What is your opinion?

Privitization is good.

As for problems with corruption in government: at least there are many methods of control unlike private business. After all, when was the last time you got a CEO fired?

ALMA capture Giant Flare Shooting of Red Star
Details : http://goo.gl/XMVVtv

Super-sharp observations with the telescope Alma have revealed what seems to be a gigantic flare on the surface of Mira, one of the closest and most famous red giant stars in the sky. The discovery could help explain how winds from giant stars make their contribution to our galaxy's ecosystem.

Please,tell me you support science...I'm fed up of people saying Earth is 6000 years old.
 
''Lie.Planet Earth is only 6000 years old.All the scientists are lying when they say thousand of million years before,the bible says it,they are so dumb that they say the Earth wa s created with an explosion,lie,God is the creator of the Earth and all being breathing on it and the universe and the bible does not talk about another civilitation,regards''

Oh,my i was so blind!!! I dont know if i must cry or laught...this is so stupid that it can't be real....

Are we going about this in the wrong way?

I know there are species of plants in the Amazon, that can allow for people to Astral Project, their spirit can pass through the universe and enter dimensions that are so astonishing, they cant find the words because they don't exist to describe such an experience, maybe we are not meant to space travel physically but spiritually? Just an idea.

Astronomers have measured the galaxy’s diameter at 100,000 light years which means little until you appreciate that one light year equals 6 trillion miles, the distance a beam of light travels in one year. The fastest spacecraft ever built, the Helios probes, reached 157,000 mph (253,000 km/hr) as they zipped around the sun studying the solar wind from the mid-1970s to 1985. While that’s nine times faster than the International Space Station, it would still take 4,383 years to travel one light year at that phenomenal pace.

The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy with a prominent dense bar of stars across its core. The sun and planets are located with a spiral arm some 27,000 light years from the centre.

Even fleet light takes 100,000 years to cross from one side of the galaxy to the other. A light ray leaving Earth 100,000 years ago, when Neanderthals were the dominate human species in Europe, recently arrived there in our mobile-phone obsessed era. What will Earth look like 100,000 years from now?

What does the question mean? Just assume there is life out there. Did that change your way of thinking?
Now assume there isn't.
