Which planet do you think is the best for colonization in the solar system


(The Collector Of Useless Information) #163

we cn colonize solar planets and light travels years to get to us from the nearest star


(Merlok keeper of the liberty top-hat) #164

Well you were talking sbout spreading the species


(The Collector Of Useless Information) #165

yes u can do that with the solar objects


(The Collector Of Useless Information) #166

If we dont find FTL we will send one way ships to stars and we have made a atom go FTL


(Merlok keeper of the liberty top-hat) #167

Yea but ftl is highly dangerous you have no idea if you are speeding towards an asteroid or a planet and if you do know you wont be fast enough to stop the ship your on


(The Collector Of Useless Information) #168

yes and that is why we have plans to go in FTL in the outer solar system


(Merlok keeper of the liberty top-hat) #169

But what if you hit a rouge planet

Are you referring to quantum entanglement? Because that only transports information, so you would first need to transfer a phsyical object at STL speeds somewhere. And even the one-way ship idea is flawed … at the very least, it would be impossible to maintain a coherent human civilization. The nearest candidate for habitable planets is merely five light years away … and yet it would take forever to reach it, not counting any hazards inbetween.

It depends on the kinds of FTL. Something along the lines of a warp gate won’t mean you might hit something (thought it wouldn’t be great for exploration), and something like a hyperdrive would mean you’d miss any obstacles, since you’re in a different dimension.

(Also, space is ridiculously empty, the chances of hitting anything are almost 0)


(Merlok keeper of the liberty top-hat) #172

Im talking about the FTL where your just going the speed of light


(He who created all life in his stupid image) #173

This is impossible … unless you are light. Which you aren’t.


(Merlok keeper of the liberty top-hat) #174

nothing is impossible


(The Collector Of Useless Information) #175

it is but u can bend space time


(He who abuses the search function) #176

yeah, so am I

FTL travel might technically be possible, we just don’t know how.

That’s just not true

But in the end, this isn’t about which planet is the best for colonization, so REEEEEEEEEEEEE


(The Collector Of Useless Information) #177

The best planet to colonize is Kepler - 438b


(Merlok keeper of the liberty top-hat) #178

But we said animals could not survive in space until we found out tardigrades could


(Merlok keeper of the liberty top-hat) #179

Yes i agree keplar 438b is a good place for colonization


(He who created all life in his stupid image) #180

It might, yes. But he was referring to a physical object simply reaching the speed of c by our classical understanding of physics. Which is impossible for us.


(The Collector Of Useless Information) #181

WAR P travel


(He who created all life in his stupid image) #182

You need to understand, that there are differences between the borders of our accumulated knowledge and the laws of physics. What you mentioned earlier (if I didn’t misunderstand) was mathematically impossible. Science is trying to find a loophole and bypass this fact, instead of just ignoring it, like you do.
