[MEGATHREAD]space fan Predictions
if you have any ideas/preditction that NASA or SpaceX or any other company sould do in space exploration what is it? should we go to mars or back to the moon? any ideas are welcome

How about instead of going to space we launch a rocket down a trench?

lol

No reason to go back to the Moon, nothing there of value.

Mars is interesting, but also fairly fruitless as far as containing anything of actual pragmatic use.

Exploring the universe at large is where we should be focused, although it's a little outside our scope at the moment.

i know, since it gets too hot during summer NASA should send a manned mission to the sun and get an astronaut to unscrew the light bulb on the sun and replace it with a dollar store one beacuse it will be weaker

I would like to see a probe bring surface samples back from Titan or Europa.
Those seem to be 2 of the more interesting moons.

ISRU on the moon.. I think there's still a contest going on to pull oxygen out of moon dirt

ISRU is everything -- it'll be our reason for going places, will keep us living while we're there, and it's our return ticket home..

mars is more interesting but a moon base could be a good idea as the very low gravity could have some good science

Jupiter3927 a mission to europa or titan would be very good there are plans to send a ROV (remotly operated vehicle) to europa to go under the ice and explore maby even find life

or even a spacex ITS interplanetary transport system take humans to land on europa and do some science and bring back alot more samples a probe could

You guys are missing the point...these samples won't actually do anything for us in terms of advancing any scientific fields related to space travel.

This isn't a video game, it's real life. Bringing back dirt and rocks from the moon doesn't let you build better rockets.
killer_Foxy Sep 22, 2017 @ 5:43pm 
i know it lets you know about the planet or moon
Operation40 Sep 22, 2017 @ 5:44pm 
samples are very useful. they used moon samples to create mock moon dirt, so teams all across the world and create ISRU designs to pull resources out of regolith.

keep in mind guys, we still don't have a return sample from Mars, lol
killer_Foxy Sep 22, 2017 @ 5:45pm 
we could get samples to see what the surface is like then in a way make alot of it to test or practice landing a craft on it
Chibbity Sep 22, 2017 @ 5:49pm 
For the kind of money it costs to send men and equipment into space there needs to be a real practical benefit to doing so.

This is exactlty the reason we haven't been back to the Moon. It's a huge waste of resources that doens't really gain us much.
Jupiter3927 Sep 22, 2017 @ 5:55pm 
It's less about the scientific value and more about the 'can we actually do it' thing.
So far we haven't recovered anything that went out further than the Moon.
