i half watched a proggie todat where they think theres massive underground cave systems on the moon which hold frozen water.....

if they cant work out what's on the moon, then its pure speculation on Mars
buzzer, they know exactly whats on the moon, why do you think they haven't been back there for so long ;)

Who knows what the future holds. Mars could be just the planet we are looking for to put our overpopulated people on in years to come. They have found water and that is a good sign and possibly hope for the future I don't mind sharing my chips we our little green friends as long as the cnut pays his way.

We are all connected to the universe, we all come from stars, this was first realized

by Fred Hoyle, when a star goes super nova in the last dying moments the star creates most of the heavier elements and yes even oxygen is made which in turn goes on to create new stars and eventually planets.

We can prove what goes on in the universe. its all there to be read.

I just don't believe in god made the universe, there are apparently over 3900 gods that people believe in, something not quite right there lol.

It would be intresting for humans to put foot on Mars.
But aparently there is no way back if we landed there. The technology has not been devolved to get back to earth.
Just a pity the space shuttle is not launching tomorrow so we could but Donald Trump on it.

haha, i like that " put Donald trump on it " haha bully! apart from that, i think you may be right about that. there are some things being said that there are bases on mars and things have been said there is actually life on there, but we wont know until we finally land there? lets wait and see what happens,

thanks firebade.

@miggy there have been talks about that also, but think about its going to cost us billions of pounds to land there. how much would it even cost to send a good thousand people there???

thanks fireblade.

Most of the worlds issues is with religion, "My God is better than your God bullshit"

Some of the worlds best known Atheists

And they have made some astounding contributions and have changed the way we understand the universe and everything around us

Niels Bohr
Francis Crick
Richard Dawkins
Paul Dirac
Stephen Hawking
Peter Higgs

To name but a few

Do you remember that Atheist suicide bomber that blew himself up amongst the general public because of his beliefs?

Nope? Neither do I......

And no, I'm not an Atheist, I'm Agnostic ("agnosticism is the view that human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify either the belief that God exists or the belief that God does not exist.").

Anyway, back to the topic... kind of. Space exploration can push technology to it's limits, and as such, we benefit from it. Here's some examples:


1. CAT scanner: this cancer-detecting technology was first used to find imperfections in space components.


2. Computer microchip: modern microchips descend from integrated circuits used in the Apollo Guidance Computer.


3. Cordless tools: power drills and vacuum cleaners use technology designed to drill for moon samples.


4. Ear thermometer: a camera-like lens that detects infrared energy we feel as heat was originally used to monitor the birth of stars.


5. Freeze-dried food: this reduces food weight and increases shelf life without sacrificing nutritional value.

6. Insulation: home insulation uses reflective material that protects spacecraft from radiation.

7. Invisible braces: teeth-straightening is less embarrassing thanks to transparent ceramic brace brackets made from spacecraft materials.

8. Joystick: this computer gaming device was first used on the Apollo Lunar Rover.

9. Memory foam: created for aircraft seats to soften landing, this foam, which returns to its original shape, is found in mattresses and shock absorbing helmets.

10. Satellite television: technology used to fix errors in spacecraft signals helps reduce scrambled pictures and sound in satellite television signals.

11. Scratch resistant lenses: astronaut helmet visor coating makes our spectacles ten times more scratch resistant.

12. Shoe insoles: athletic shoe companies adapted space boot designs to lessen impact by adding spring and ventilation.

13. Smoke detector: NASA invented the first adjustable smoke detector with sensitivity levels to prevent false alarms.

14. Swimsuit: NASA used the same principles that reduce drag in space to help create the world’s fastest swimsuit for Speedo, rejected by some professionals for giving an unfair advantage.

15. Water filter: domestic versions borrow a technique NASA pioneered to kill bacteria in water taken into space.
