Do you guys like space? I think space is really neat.

Naturally. What can you tell us about space?

Unfortunately, not much. I do know that it is very large and brimming with wonderful things to see. I'm no astrophysicist, and I don't know much about the specifics.

It is big. Also pretty cold and dark, like Russia.

All those images are edited. Space isn't colorful like that.

why is it so big?

You know usual photography doesn't reproduce colours well either? Most notably, you need special filters to prevent UV light from shining through.

Post unedited images.

What's going on in space? Where's KoryƏ's satellites and what are they up to? What will be the next major deed of humanity, what's up with Mars? Habitable planets in other systems?

It isn't big, just we are very very very very tiny.

I think we need a permanent base on Moon if we want to build better. Right now getting shit off ground is a major limit on how big and how fragile you're allowed to go. The Moon, on contrary, has no atmosphere and has much lower 2nd cosmic velocity (a measure of how strongly gravitationally bound you are on the surface), so there is no need for space probes to neatly fold into a rocket, and, if Moon has the resources needed to produce rocket fuel, also save on that.
Many say that isolation and low-g is a big issue, but the crew on ISS stays up in orbit for a couple of months already. Moon is much further, but probably better in those regards than Earth orbit.

What resources could the Moon offer?
If we want to assemble stuff why not just do it in orbit? There could be a fuel plant on the Moon and transport the fuel to the assembly station.

Here's an interesting article: https://www.space.com/28189-moon-mining-economic-feasibility.html
My understanding is that the moon would most likely be mined for rare-earth minerals, but we don't yet know the specifics of which minerals, locations, quantities, etc.

Well besides >>8579 (which mostly talks about what stuff we should actually mine on Moon to bring to Earth), lunar rock is pretty similar to Earth's basalts, so materials such as iron, titanium or magnesium could be mined there. Yes you could mine it on Earth, bring it to orbit, assemble there, and refuel at Moon, but if rich ore is found in some locations on Moon, you're cutting down transport costs for raw materials. Assembly in orbit might be even better than on Moon (zero-g), the only real thing Moon has to offer is possible raw materials already present there.

Actually you're ramping up the transport cost as the raw materials have to be transported to Earth first to process them then manufacture the parts for the assembly.
On the other hand if we move whole factories to the Moon then we have something. Also we have higher cost on transporting hundreds of workers to the Moon and back because they need some rotation every few months.

On that link there was another link:
https://www.space.com/21588-how-moon-base-lunar-colony-works-infographic.html
and it says on Earth a person needs 10 liters of drinking water daily. 10. How? Or they use binary?

I thought it counts water used for cooking too but then I saw separate water for cooking category
also
>dried food
meanwhile ISS has been growing veggies for quite some time

Everyone writes his own sci-fi it seems.
>so we're gonna like living on the Moon
>and we're gonna like dehydrate dried stuff sent from Earth
>it will be like when my parents weren't at home on weekend
<but dude, we can grown our food there

well yeah I guess the problem is that urban nerds tend to write more about living in space than normal people do

Very nice and aesthetic. Gas giants are very interesting objects.
I understand when you fly into it's "surface" you can't really crash, because it's gas, until you go deep enough pressure will crush you. Sort of like going deep into ocean. It's like big space ocean.
Also I've just read that it has probably a rocky core.

Now that after this vid pointed out it's kinda obvious to think that it's large enough object to make noticeable effect. Wiki says:
>the other planets also cause a small movement of Earth's axis in inertial space

I wonder if a sci-fi author wrote a book about submarine-like adventure under the surface of a gas giant. It has some potential. But to be frank the whole space travel thing is a submarine-like adventure.

Yep it do. I actually have an excel spreadsheet that I put together that allows me to calculate moments of precession for an arbitrary world.
