    Not going to happen. Humans destroy everything. Greed consumes people.
    Yeah, look at Trajan's Column. The Great Pyramid's. The Hagia Sophia. The Sistine Chapel. Notre Dame. The Dome of the Rock. The Arc de Triomphe. The Moai. The great pyramids of the Aztecs. The Great Mosque of Divrigi(I can't even begin to go into all the beautiful Islamic architecture, just go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_architecture). The Taj Mahal. Qutub Minar. Zhouzeng Garden, the Forbidden City, the Iron Pagoda, Longhua Pagoda. Wat Chedi Liem. Prambanan Temple, and Borobudur Temple. Versailles. Beeethoven's Symphony #9. Shakespearre's "The Tempest." Aeschylus's Hepta epi Thebas. Marcus Aurelius' Meditations. Luo Guahzhong's Three Kingdom's. Just to name a few. A very, very few.

    Yes, all man knows how to do it destroy.

    yup... jakko's right here.

    humanity has potential for pretty much anything. it's just that destroying is so much easier than creating.

    I think it'd be more correct...er to say that humanity fails at perfectly preserving.
    Are you happy? I am happy.

    but zomg look at all the rocks that were killed to make those!!! all the mud that was slain to stick them together!!! all the trees destroyed to write on!!!


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Ergo...

    I never said man never had the potential just saying they destroy way easier than they create.

    I would just leave that planet alone. Let us first deal with our problems here on this one planet. Then lets seek the other
    planets.

    I think it'd be more correct...er to say that humanity fails at perfectly preserving.
    that too

    By the time we're able to reach that planet fast enough, I think our technology is sufficient to preserve our little Earth.

    Only as far as atmospheric pressure is concerned (6m down to be precise). Resistance would probably be the same as on earth but you (particularly your limbs) would feel heavier, unlike underwater where the water actually supports your weight (making you feel lighter).

    Interesting, though.
    Sigh, would be nice if we had prototype ships equipped with fusion drives so humans could at least visit Mars.

    They don't know if there's life on it or not. Gotta wait untill they have the tools to find out.
