    Dennis, Jeff and Susan discuss the probability that there is Life, beyond Earth, in the Universe.


    How smart were we 2,000 years ago? Or 4,000 years Before Christ (B.C.)? Yes, we’ve come a LONG way in just the last 200 years, when we were just riding horses, to today, when we have cars, airplanes, and spaceships.


    Now, just think how long our universe existed. It started, with the Big Bang, about 14 billion years ago. Now compare that number to how young human beings are on our planet, the Earth.


    Astronomer Bob Berman confirmed that our Milky Way Galaxy contains 400 billion stars, including our own star, the Sun. NASA is now able to detect the other planets, like this planet Earth, revolving around those other stars.


    Furthermore, our Milky Way Galaxy is one of a hundred billion galaxies.


    Where does the TRUTH lie ? The laws of probability suggest there is Life, beyond Earth, in the Universe. 
    Just imagine a planet way out there with creatures living there MUCH longer than we've controlled this planet.  Instead of 6,000 years evolving on our planet, imagine residents of older planets over the last 14 billion years.  They could have gone WAY beyond planes & spaceships like ours.  They could have even visited our planet thousands of years ago.  Imagine if they were hoping to move to a better planet had they hurt their own planet with problems like climate change or global warming.


    They could have landed on our planet thousands of years ago hoping to relocate here but our atmosphere may have been much different than their's.  If we didn't have the right amount of nitrogen, helium, or oxygen for them, they couldn't take off their spacesuits and breath our air.  Of course, before they went back up into space, they could have been Godly enough to bring our planet beyond homo erectis (apes, chimpanzees, orangutans, etc.) to homo sapians (we the people).

    MarsCrew134 - SUEANN SEAH, Crew Engineer on Ultrahaptics & 3D Sensation

    in Science

    Sue Ann is a Crew Engineer for MarsCrew134, a team of highly trained scientist, researchers and filmmaker who will embark on a Mars simulation at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, USA.


    She is currently a researcher in human-computer interaction (HCI) within the Bristol Interaction and Graphics Lab at the University of Bristol. Her research interests are in exploring different types of multisensory interfaces and have a specific interest in haptics: understanding how the sensation of touch functions and how we can re-create the feeling of textures or objects through an interface. 


    One of the projects she is currently working on, Ultrahaptics, can create the sensation of 3D objects in mid-air using ultrasound. As a space suit creates a barrier between the astronaut and the environment, prohibiting full immersion into their surroundings, Sue Ann is interested in the current limitations of how astronauts interact with the
    environment and how those interactions may be improved. 


    The long-term goal is to design a space suit layer that is the perfect interface between astronauts and unknown environments: the suit protects humans from hostile world but also transmits necessary information in the inside in order to help astronauts discern various surface textures, the temperature of objects, even the orders of their surroundings, thus allowing them to better understand the unexplored world. This is particularly crucial with respect to future, long-term off-world missions.

    Bootstrapping to Space - Donald Jacques

    in Books

    You are watching TV one week night, jumping channels trying to avoid the usual fare of reality TV, when you see people in spacesuits.  But these are not the hi-tech suits you'd expect in a sci-fi show, but this stuff looks like NASA.  You stop for a moment and watch.  Wait!  These are real people!  This, is Survivor:  Space.  These people are on the show to be selected for the first team of four settlers to be launched to the moon.  And not some distant launch, but THIS YEAR!  Whoa!  How did they get there?  How was it paid for?  When can I get on the show - wait,  do I really want to go?  Hmmmmmm.
