but alas, not real. although Peter Mayhew is a bit hairy. hands like shovels too. nice guy.

I'd like to see a fight between a Wookie and a Klingon. the Wookie would win but it would be a good one.

I would hope so. Otherwise, way too much information.

Indeed!

Gas giant moons, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. It'll be a long time but we'll colonize them one day I believe. Now those worlds would be anything but dull! It's sad to see support in space exploration wavering. People say it costs so much. Well yes it does, but imagine the onslaught of wealth from the asteroid belt. A second gold rush! There's money out there, that'll pay and pave our way to colonization of the solar system.

Not dull in the slightest!

Space is boring? Wow. Where the hell have you been?!

In the last three decades, we've learned more about the bodies in our own solar system than mankind knew in all of recorded histroy about just the Earth. There are worlds out there where the geology is as ever changing as the weather, planets where there are volcanoes the size of continents, and canyons where our Grand Canyon would get lost in one of their minor tributaries. Ring systems that defy mechanics? We got 'em! How about south poles to gas giants that are in geometrical shapes? Got those too.

You can keep your paltry cannons on the space station. We recently slammed a 300 pound puck of copper into an asteroid at a muzzle velocity that would have made Jules Verne's moon cannon blush. And we did it deliberately! We blew a crater into that rock the size of a football feild!

You can claim space to be boring if you like. To me, that just proves you've been watching too much BS TV, and not watching what's been happening in the real world.

Now Fan, stop holding back my freind. Let us know how you really feel.

There are already harnesses being developed. They resemble nothing more than a sleeping bag. I don't think there will be much need for them though, because if we are to spend any length of time in space artificial means of producing gravity will need to be employed. Space stations and craft will probably spin to create centrifical force. Things will get done the old fashioned way when that happens.
