    The year is almost over! For all those science fans out there, this forum is dedicated to writing about this years science achievements. One being the new Mars probe which landed near the end of this year, testing Mars’ seismic activity and temperatures. Many other achievements were also made, feel free to discuss about them!

    Personally ever since i was a child (a long time ago) our science projects in space have always been the most inspiring to me.

    At the end of the day we need to embrace space exploration or long term we are doomed. It will be hideously expensive if we do it 'properly' but long term we do have to do it.

    I have followed what we are and have been doing if sometimes  only in passing. 

    Mir, followed by the international space station. And all the space probes.  The next logical step will be a moon colony. 

    Hideously expensive, but we do have to do it.

    At home i do have a National Geographic magazine. With images from the Voyager probes, magnificent doesnt even begin to describe it. Space is the future and we do have to embrace it. It is no good looking inwards at tiny little things, we need to embrace what is around us.

    To be honest i fear we will never do what we really need to do. We are still pretty backwards.

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    I personally don't worry much about humanity, if you look how our evolution was, it was quite exponential. This last 50 years, the progress done in science is quite spectacular compared to the progress done in the last millennia (lets be honest, religions and mostly the church had a blame on the stagnation of science, if it didn't consider each discovery a heresy, i belive nowadays we would already have colonized Mars or any orbital object) 

    At this rate, i'm sure science will find answers to the troubles astronauts face regarding long space travel.

    I agree with that idea, i sometimes see the humans like a parasite specie like in the horror scifi movies but where we are the monsters.

    I imagine the humans in the far future, they would colonize a planet, deplete it from all its resources killing any living creature on their way and than passing to another planet and repeat this cycle

    At the rate we are going we will never ever do that.

    Unless there is a massive cover up we dont even have a moon colony yet. If we cant even have a colony on the moon then we cant do much else can we?

    It will be hideously expensive when we do it. But it is the first baby step outwards for us.
