• Why don't we terraform every planet in the solar system?

    Alter the landscape, climate, oxygen levels, etc. of every planet with a solid surface to make them comfortable and livable for our future selves. Mercury, Venus, and Mars are relatively close and should be the easiest to deal with, so no real problems there.. The gas planets might be a little tougher to convert,... show more
    Alter the landscape, climate, oxygen levels, etc. of every planet with a solid surface to make them comfortable and livable for our future selves. Mercury, Venus, and Mars are relatively close and should be the easiest to deal with, so no real problems there.. The gas planets might be a little tougher to convert, but a solid platform (covered with soil) over the methane and ammonia (or whatever it is that fills Neptune, for example), and a solid wall to block the 1300mph winds, would be about all we need (I think). We'll have to deradiate and degravitate Jupiter somehow...that one sounds the trickiest so we will have to save that planet for last. After this planet goes belly up we'll all need a relaxing place to stay. So call it hard work well rewarded when we finally finish. Yes, I know it would be a lot of money but it will be worth it. And, yes, the engineering feats are a bit tricky, but we have such brilliant minds on this doomed planet, it should't be too much trouble to start drawing up the blueprints. The sooner the better- so lets get crackin' fellow geniuses! I would say have the report on my desk by Wednesday morning, but I don't know how to build a desk.

  • Why don't we bend space and move galaxies closer?

    instead of having to spend light years traveling there, why don't we "bend" space, an imperceptible fabric, but a fabric nonetheless. All it would take is some special machinery. And some very well thought out blueprints..

  • Why is Andromeda moving towards us?

    Best answer: Andromeda is the largest galaxy in our Local group; the Milky Way comes next. Therefore, it is "natural" that two huge galaxies attract each other since their positions are relatively close to one another (two million light years). There are more than 50 other smaller galaxies in the group, and maybe a... show more
    Best answer: Andromeda is the largest galaxy in our Local group; the Milky Way comes next. Therefore, it is "natural" that two huge galaxies attract each other since their positions are relatively close to one another (two million light years). There are more than 50 other smaller galaxies in the group, and maybe a small one could collide with our galaxy before Andromeda does. And by the way, Andromeda is heading towards us at a speed of 400,000 km per hour. Yes, you read right....four hundred thousand! Nevertheless, it will take a handful of billion years to expect the collision.

  • How does the flat earth mode explain the Southern celestial pole?

    Most flat earth models state that the earth is a flat disc centered around the north pole. The Sun, moon, and stars rotate around this pole. This explains why the north star (the north celestial pole) dose not move. But then why do the stars also rotate around the southern celestial pole? If the earth was flat,... show more

This explains why the north star (the north celestial pole) dose not move. But then why do the stars also rotate around the southern celestial pole? If the earth was flat, wouldn't there be only one? Or does the north celestial not really exist? I will admit, I have only seen the southern one.

  • Why will it takes months to fly astronauts to mars?

    I'm pretty sure since we last went to the moon technology has increased to the point that we should be able to build a spacecraft to get them there in a week or 2
