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.

Bernd 06/30/2017 (Fri) 18:28:26 [Preview] No. 8577 del
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

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.

>if rich ore is found in some locations on Moon, you're cutting down transport costs for raw materials.
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.

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.

I have been thinking about this thing recently that is related to space but also to biology but I guess it fits here.

Let's say men reach technological level that allows to freely colonize other planets. As we know our planets needs 24 hours to make a full turn which of course affects day and night cycle. But others planets have different rotation speeds. So what happens to humans' day and night cycles who start living on a different planet?

Let's say we have planet A which have 12 hours long day and planet B which have 48 hour long day.
Will colonists on A adapt to new cycle and sleep 4 hours + be active 8 hours? Or will he sleep and be active like on earth while experiencing 2 local days passing? How much such changes would be stressful for human brain?
Similarly on planet B will colonists switch and have 16 hours sleep 32 hour active phases or will they stay with the old cycle and basically have one dark day and one light day?

Is such adaptation even possible? If yes, then how? Are the ones that arrive there able to switch or is it something that would only be possible after couple generations via evolution?

Here is a post. Bernd 03/26/2018 (Mon) 19:05:46 [Preview] No.15316 del
Do I like space?

Between me and you, yes.
In my apartment? No, it's needless.
Space in general? Like, the expanding, mysterious universe? No. Quite frankly, it is of no use to me. The moon and stars have aesthetic value, I suppose, but generally I could do without knowing about a bunch of stupid shit about "space."

I took an astronomy class in uni and it was horrible. Pretty much all math and calculations and some chemistry. The only redeeming aspect of that class was the professor was a white haired, old, fat, neurotic guy with glasses who somehow steered every lecture at some point into the possibility of reaction happening in space that would cause "the complete sterilization of all life on earth." Kind of deep when you think about his obvious lack of a sex life or children. He used to sit in the cafeteria and just stare at all the sexy little college girls and then go and lecture about space and how the universe is going to kill us.

Depending on the situation artificial nights could be applied. I dunno if the radiation from the Sun changes anything beside the light ambiance.
Also maybe power naps could help.

Bernd 03/26/2018 (Mon) 20:40:31 [Preview] No.15335 del
For long day/night cycles, settlers will try to adjust their schedule to sleep at noon and midnight due to the excessive heat and cold at these hours. You might end up with sunset and sunrise as the work periods.

For short cycles, temperature swings from day to night are much shorter, so light is the only problem. Settlers could either drown out the night with their lamps and pretend they're still in Earth or adjust to shorter sleeps. which I assume is possible despite its side effects -see biphasic and polyphasic sleep patterns.

Bernd 03/26/2018 (Mon) 22:21:27 [Preview] No.15346 del
Humans surely could adapt to different day length. They did it in past multiple times. For example, in pre-electricity times people cared more about length of nighttime, not about hours, so, in summer, they slept less than in winter, especially when they need to go to work in fields at early morning. Humans also like to sleep in middle of day.

Only question is the limits of adaptability. I'm too lazy to seek links now, but I've seen multiple times that humans adapt to different activily/sleep cycle when they don't see real day/night. For example, some speleologists in caves got 36 (24 + 8 for sleep) or even 48, and it felt better with this cycle (this is also a source for conspirology about extraterrestrial origins of humanity).
