interestingly, i stumbled across this thread today
havent had a chance to start reading it, but i'll post for everyone's enjoyment
keep in mind, a good portion of the people posting in it are actual innovators working on experiements that exist to prove whatever they are working on

What do you think the average projected lifespan of a newborn will be in the year 2110?
About the same, give or take +/- 10 years. Aging is built into our DNA, and when our cells age to a certain point, scientists think something "clicks" to kill the cells to prevent cancer.

So your ancestors will still die, don't worry. Assuming you're not a virgin and will actually have ancestors.

Radical "flying car" predictions aren't ever realized. The coolest **** (the internet) comes out of nowhere.

i dunno, 17k in isolation from the rest of the pack..these two generational ships could have wildly different cultures, languages, other things that evolved differently

they'd probably try to kill each other due to suspicions and things

decendants :p (hah!)

anyway, oxygen kills cells
low doses of radiation have been proven to heal cell damage
i'm sure we can find other ways to heal cells or inject ourselves with healthy delicious aborted baby gene

I think that in 2110, there will be thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people who were born in the 1990's and who are still happy, productive people.

Okay Triple, we have a fundamental disagreement. I freely admit that much of my thoughts on aging are influenced by what I've read from Aubrey Du Grey and a few others. Feel free to read about him if you would like.

I plan on being one of those 100 year old men who still goes for runs every morning and does not look a day over 80. That will take me to 2082 if I play my cards right and who knows what kind of anti-aging treatments will be available by then. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get to see the next 100 years after that

Here he is speaking at TED 2007:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iYpxRXlboQ

If all of this is wrong and I die at 85 then it won't matter, I won't be around to care. But if there is even a tiny chance that it's possible to have massive healthy lifespans it seems silly not to try for it... silly to just give up and accept the "way it has to be"

look man i get it, i have both seasons of GITS on dvd se sitting on my bookcase.. i just don't think our society is advanced enough to spend what amounts to millions of dollars per person to give you a bionic arm

and hey, we're fragile too. indefinite lifespan? Yea, those aging drugs don't do **** if you drive into a tree.

virgin galactic wont be entering space until 2011
Virgin Galactic to test rocket-powered spaceship next year

reaction engines limited, which are producing the Skylon/SABRE engine(freaking sweet concepts)
i dont think i talked about them before
Reaction Engines Limited :: Projects - SKYLON : Overview


spacex:
aborted test. should be trying again shortly
Quote:
Elon Musk, SpaceX's founder and CEO, has provided the following update on the cause of Tuesday's aborted launch pad engine test:

"The valve that didn't actuate is the ground side isolation valve to release ground supplied high pressure helium to start the first stage engine turbopumps spinning at several thousand rpm. Once that happens it generates enough pressure to start the gas generator, which is a small rocket engine that powers the turbopump. There are no vehicle side valves actuated for spin start (just check valves), so it is an all engines or none situation.

The problem was pretty simple: our autostart sequence didn't issue the command to the normally closed ground side isolation valve. We had tested everything on the vehicle side exhaustively in Texas, but didn't have this iso valve on our test stand there. Definitely a lesson learned to make sure that *everything* is the same between test stand and launch pad on the ground side, not just on the vehicle side.

Ignition fluid (TEA-TAB) flowed nominally to all engines creating the green flame and the main valves opened, but no engines actually started and the system automatically aborted on lack of spin. The fire generated was from flushing the system of fuel and LOX from the open mains. No damage to the vehicle or ground systems and no other anomalies that need to be addressed. If all goes well, we will try the static fire again in the next few days. Right now, we are holding due to extreme weather. It is raining sideways at 46 mph and tornados have been spotted just north of the Cape.

It is important for readers to appreciate that what we are going through right now is the equivalent of "beta testing." Problems are expected to occur, as they have throughout the development phase. The beta phase only ends when a rocket has done at least one, but arguably two or three consecutive flights to orbit."

I love concept animations.

Reaction Engines Limited :: LAPCAT A2 Animation: Flash

They're like corporate videos. They have their own unique look and feel. Like paintings in restaurants and hotels.

static fire on the pad a success. SpaceX now has an FAA launch license for a year. They expect to actual attempt launch in the next month.

Find Jobs - Astronauts Jobs in North Las Vegas, Nevada - Bigelow Aerospace

Bigelow Aerospace seeks professional astronauts to fill permanent positions. Qualified applicants need to have completed a training program from their government or recognized space agency and have at least some flight experience on a recognized space mission. Specialized training and/or experience (ie: Medical, Payload Specialist, EVA, Pilot, etc.) is not a pre-requisite, but is definitely a plus.

Possible opportunities will come in two areas:

1) Ground
Working with Marketing Team to secure government and cooperate clients.

Working with Design and Fabrication Teams to help optimize layout of systems for on-orbit serviceability and ergonomics.

Working with Mission Control Team on final checkout of flight vehicles, both pre and post launch.

Help Develop Astronaut training programs for Bigelow Aerospace Professional Astronaut Corps as well as Client Astronaut Corps.

Work instructing in the Bigelow Astronaut Training Program

2) Flight

Perform as Professional Astronaut aboard Bigelow Aerospace Station Complex

Manage all onboard aspects of employee and customer astronaut personal safety

Maintain the Station Complex as required (mainly IVA, but some EVA as well)

Help clients with payloads or experiments (primarily with regards to integration into station***8217;s systems and communications)



Bigelow Aerospace is a leader in the commercial space complex arena providing a Low Earth Orbital environment and necessary services to cooperate and governmental clients in support of space research and exploration



up up and away

the runway at spaceport america

Spaceport America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
Spaceport America (formerly named Southwest Regional Spaceport) is the "first purpose-built commercial spaceport" in the world,[1][2][3] although initial construction is not yet complete. As of October 2009[update], eight suborbital missions have been launched from the port. Located near the White Sands Missile Range in state-owned desert 45 miles (72 km) north of Las Cruces and 30 miles (48 km) east of Truth or Consequences, it is currently under active development and is expected to be completed in 2010.

dude, i got to see a SaturnV in houston
holy god
the plumbing and and complexity of that rocket and all it's tiny, and huge parts...
it was awe inspiring that we can build something like that

Yea, the SpaceX engine is significantly less awe inspiring after seeing a SaturnV up close. It's probably a sign of technological progress that we are able to create a sleek engine like that.
