Stephen Hawking, in his TED talk, (go to www.ted.com-search there for Stephen Hawking), states that mankind may destroy the earth over the next few hundred years. He urges us to develop the capability to colonize space if we want to survive as a species. He also states that while there is almost certainly intelligent life somewhere in the universe, it's not likely to be within 100,000 light years. It's up to us, then in our neighborhood, to continue exploring scientific, social and spiritual development for living beings. He says if we can make it for 100 years, we should be able to get viable colonization capabilities.

When can we bottle it to sell? ;-)
but is there carbon on the moon?
Scientists keep talking about comets 'seeding' planets with water or maybe life.. Can Denton explain what a comet actually is and what sets a comet into such a large and unusual orbit.
What will the religious fundamentalists say now as we prove more and more that we are not in a geocentric universe?
Isn't the moon's known purpose enough? MUST there also be life there?
Could the water on the moon be because the moon was once part of the Earth?
