  1. Our destiny as an advanced species is definitely not to physically rocket off of this Earth.

    The regolith DUST alone will make short order of all living things to arrive at either place, with its electrostatically-CLINGY pastry flour consistency, nano-particles with jagged edges. There is no liquid water present to wear down the edges. Hence, ‘asbestosis’-like symptoms will develop eventually with ALL living creatures exposed.

    Space suits and airlocks may keep the majority of the dust at bay. But it won’t keep it all out. And over a relatively short period of time, this dust will get into EVERYTHING.

    Humans in deep space + gamma radiation = Game Over. Period.

    The latest NASA shielding is still pathetically inadequate to protect living cretures. At the very least, it will require a wall of water at least 3 meters thick, to shield from radiation.

    Space exploration is a job best-suited for ROBOTS. They become our extended eyes, and don’t need complex life support systems.
