I'm not sure this will help or hurt human colonization of Mars?

https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/745840...ravel-harmony/

SEX-BOTS will help humans colonise Mars, according to a love-doll enthusiast who helps "test drive" randy robots.

YouTuber, love-doll collector and sex-bot consultant Brick Dollbanger told The Sun that we'll soon by relying on droids for space travel – and said we'll eventually become bots ourselves.


"You-tuber, love-doll collector AND sex bot consultant"? Is that a real resume? Is "Brick Dollbanger" the guys real name?

Well this does come from the Sun which is not exactly a noted space exploration source.

American Nick Hague and Russian Aleksey Ovchinin were forced to abort their mission on the cusp of space, at an altitude of approximately 50km (164,000ft).

They landed safely in Kazakhstan after a 'ballistic re-entry', during which they experienced forces of up to 7G.
Just another reminder of the incredible risks of rocket launches and space travel. I never could understand how space suits could hold the heavy brass balls of astronauts.

More of those strange Galactic radio light wave bursts:

https://www.space.com/42085-mysterio...scoveries.html

A new study reports the detection of 19 previously undiscovered FRBs, including the closest one to Earth and the brightest one ever seen. The results boost the total tally significantly; just three dozen or so FRBs had been known previously, with the first detection coming in 2007.

FRBs are brief (millisecond-long) but intense emissions of radio light, which can pack as much energy as our own sun produces over the course of nearly a century. Their source is the topic of much discussion and debate. For example, some researchers have suggested that FRBs could be generated by advanced alien civilizations, though most astronomers favor natural explanations, such as fast-spinning neutron stars.

MOONMOON
It's MOONMOON though SUBMOON is also in the running:

A moon of a moon has no formal name, perhaps because we have never spotted one, but both submoon and moonmoon have been suggested.

Stephen Hawking left us bold predictions on AI, superhumans, and aliens

The late physicist Stephen Hawking’s last writings predict that a breed of superhumans will take over, having used genetic engineering to surpass their fellow beings.

In Brief Answers to the Big Questions, to be published on Oct. 16 and excerpted today in the UK’s Sunday Times (paywall), Hawking pulls no punches on subjects like machines taking over, the biggest threat to Earth, and the possibilities of intelligent life in space.

He seems more than a bit behind the curve on those predictions. Anything new or unique in them?

Where he gets it wrong IMO is in the idea that only the wealthiest will benefit and that there will be a race of "super humans". I suspect that these benefits will be available to most everyone living in the 1st world. Relative to us, EVERYONE will be a "super human" in the not so distant future.

Bezos is spot on here:

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/15/blue...ed-summit.html

Blue Origin founder and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos predicts we'll have 1 trillion humans in the solar system one day — and he laid out Monday how the rocket company plans to help get there.

It's impossible to predict, but I'm always amazed at how no one seems to account for the possibility of people changing their views toward technology completely. It wouldn't be crazy if over time people decide/realize that unfettered technological advancement isn't necessarily progress. I suspect this would be most likely to happen once AI and robotics advance to the point where human work is no longer needed and there's an epidemic of meaninglessness that dwarfs today's issues of depression and anxiety.

That does seem reasonable for the hoi polloi but the riche will still be living in their holographic worlds.

I'm not really sure that makes sense. I would presume the "riche" would want the "hoi polloi" wasting away in VR, not the other way around, if it's even possible to have such a class structure given there could be no markets due to human work being obsolete. It would seem a type of aristocratic upper class society would first emerge post-work but how long could it last?
