Came here to say this. it’s so funny to me that people have somehow convinced themselves that the Earth will be around and habitable long enough for us to develop the technology required to set up a colony (a colony, not a base) on Mars. Sure, maybe it’s possible, but I simply don’t see how you could look at climate…
“why should we expect troves of people to want to live in a place that’s considerably more unpleasant? It seems a poor alternative to living on Earth”
I think humans will out-breed our ability to feed ourselves long before colonies outside our biosphere become independently viable.
This is actually kind of touching. Its like a family helping care for a member who is ill. Obviously, I may be projecting my emotions on the trees, but, it shows a support system that most humans don’t even have.
Former space suit design engineer here...the dust was extremely damaging to the bearings and other mating surfaces on the suit. It has a static charge and clings to everything. The regolith is very sharp and once embedded is very difficult to remove. Brushing it off did very little and maybe even helped to drive it…
“More human than human”, that’s our motto.
This is the correct take. The Warriors looked to be running out of steam in previous rounds. Their core players essentially added a sixth season’s worth of games in the process of their last five playoff runs. The Clippers and a completely dysfunctional Rockets team both took them to six games. There are no asterisks.…
NOW it’s a good article. Super fascinating discovery. I always appreciate how you guys reach out to other scientists to gauge their reaction to these discoveries.
I haven’t read this yet, but I had to comment immediately to voice my displeasure for this missing the very important Forbidden Sandwich tag. I trust this glaring omission will be rectified promptly.
My four year old son has apraxia of speech which is basically a defect in translating thought to speech - even though his mouth is fully capable of it. While we have him in a variety of speech services and he continues to improve, it’s very comforting to know these technologies continue to develop as assistive …
Giant isopods freak me out almost as much as horseshoe crabs. It’s like they’re just waiting to lay an embryo in my chest cavity.

My sense of scale was totally out the window before I saw the arrows. I thought I was looking at a crater you might ding a car rim on, not an Olympic stadium...
So would you say it was a ... virgin Virgin flight?
Watching this now using the NASA app on my Android TV box. This will be the first time I’ve been able to watch a complete spacewalk since I’ve never had the time before (I’m recovering from back surgery last week, so I’m out of work right now). This will be neat to see. :)
Well, I’m gonna go there.
He must not be getting his “medicine”.
This style of science writing on Giz ,which includes interviews with other experts in the field unaffiliated to the study, is really fantastic.
