    lol, that convo is funny as hell.

    The idea is cool, but we need to fix this planet before we fix another.

    No no no, think of it scientifically... So we terraform Mars... Then all the suspended bacterial life wakes up, infects us and we turn into Martian zombies hellbent on returning to Earth and eating brains! THINK, PEOPLE!

    I agree. I think we came from Mars. I also think that the Moon was strategically placed where it currently is - Possibly in the efforts of colonizing Earth.

    That's entertaining and all but the human genom project proves otherwise. Apperence is about the least reliable genetic trait.

    doubtful we could even do it. if they can do it to mars, why not do something here to fix the ozone..... all this shit that they want to do, but should be more dedicated to sht thats going on here.

    Getting ozone into the upper atmosphere is hard.

    Blanketing a planet with as much carbon dioxide as possible is reletively easy... We seem to be pretty good at that already. :D

    The object is to get enough greenhouse gasses into Mars' atmosphere as possible to raise the temperature. On Mars there are a LOT of gases frozen on the ground and chemically bonded with the rock... We wouldn't have to completely fill the planet, we'd just have to get enough to warm the planet enough that the gases that are already there can escape, basically have the planet terraform itself. If we can 'spark' the planet a little it should fire up on its own again.

    thats all well and good (in a tree huggin kinda way ;) )

    but it doesnt change the FACT that we are running out of space here
    this planet is being RAPIDLY over populated (there is a downside to all these people living longer)

    so unless people start dying at a reasonable age again, and the reproduction rate is drasticly slowed, we WILL run out of space and resources

    so what is left to do????

    It kinda sounds sensible that "The Human Race" has been trading planets for billions of years. We can't seem to stop ourselves from making a huge impact on one planet, so we give one planet a time to rest. A few million years should do it.

    As far as the Moon, The moon's revolution is axi-centric with The Earth. So that we see the same side, all the time. Simple, you know this.

    Why are there are craters on the earth side ? Why a crater at the exact closest point on the moon ? That shouldn't be possible by our known physics of the moon. I think the Moon was placed there to protect the earth from meteor debris and constant pounding. And it was placed with accuracy and purpose.

    Explain Pluto's moon. Charon is in perfect synchronous orbit with Pluto AND also always shows the same face. There's a side that has never seen Charon. You could set up directional WiFi between the two and never lose signal.

    As an aside, because of Pluto's odd orbit and Charon's position, Charon has forty-two phases, compared to our moon's seven.

    Try shooting a person behind a building without hitting the building.
