So whether they would actually take over in the kind of way that's envisaged in some science fiction movies, it's not at all clear. Is there any realm where you think AI is likely to be highly beneficial, with fewer potential drawbacks? I do think that it's in space that AI has its greatest upsides and fewest downsides.
It's very expensive to send people into space. At the moment machines aren't as alert. The Curiosity Rover that's trundling across Mars now may miss things that a human geologist would see immediately. But that may change, and soon we'd be able to send robots to explore the planets in our solar system, and have large robotic fabricators to build huge structures in space.
So the case is getting weaker all the time for sending people into space. Some pioneers will go into space, and perhaps go to Mars. Privately funded projects can accept higher risks than NASA can impose on publicly funded civilians. The shuttle was launched times and it failed just twice—a less than two percent failure rate. Many test pilots, mountaineers ,and adventurers are happy to accept those risks. But those two failures of the Shuttle were a national trauma in America, which led to a delay in the program and a futile attempt to cut the risk further.
So I think the best opportunity is for the private sector to do this in a high-risk way. Space tourism is the wrong phrase to use. It should be space adventure, because it's not going to be routine, it's going to be risky, maybe even one way tickets.
Musk has said himself that he hopes to die on Mars, but not on impact. In 40 year's time, this might be realistic.
The respect in which I don't agree with Musk, or indeed with Stephen, who said the same thing, is in thinking there will be mass emigration. I think Mars will just be a place for the pioneers and adventurers, just like the summit of Everest and the South Pole. The idea that we can escape Earth's problems by going to Mars is a dangerous delusion.
We've got to solve them here, because dealing with climate change is a doddle compared to terraforming Mars. I hope that there will be some regulation and constraints on the use of AI and biotech here on Earth. But a group of pioneers living on Mars will be away from all the regulators.
Moreover, we're well-adapted to the Earth, but they will not be at all well-adapted to Mars. So they will have every incentive and every opportunity to use all the techniques of genetic modification and cyber-technology and so forth to adapt themselves to this hostile environment.
I think that's where the first post-humans will emerge. If it turns out that, as Ray Kurzweil says, you can download human intelligence into some electronic machine, those machines won't want an atmosphere.
They may prefer zero g. So they will leave the planet and because they're near-immortal, they're not going to be deterred by an interstellar journey. So one scenario, for the far future, is that there will be electronic intelligences, which will eventually spread from our solar system and far beyond.
I think it could well be that the instigators of those will be future pioneers on Mars. The whole written story sound negative to the rest of the world. What have the US done the last years? Apollo was the last one on the moon which was from the US. And then the comment: Why because they can? People wake up because there other nation as in Europe and Asia which has the potential todo things much better. Where was America the last years, and look now? All the ignorance about sience?
Sorry and then these comments? The leadership in all that has the US lost. The ISS is an international project. The Mars project is an international project, seen the hardware came from all over the world. Guys wake up please…. Both are expected to resume operation during day. Lander heater may be needed to make computer operable for start. Seeds germinated on surface of media had poor chance of proper growth.
Looks as if stems failed. But still included the experiment, and just accepted there would be less results. And, they saved all the money that stuff costs by simply not doing it.
In the end the launch deadline was not flexible. Either something went over deadline and got left out, or something went over its weight budget and the mission commander made a choice what to leave out. In the US where there is a different process, those other assumptions might be required to explain events. No moon colony of humans exists or was started. First country to establish a moon colony in the moon with reproducing females will own the earth. Do you want Iran, N. Korea, China or Russia to have the first colony?
Magnetics, solar reflective furnaces and photovoltaic panels could make refined metals while people control is all from under ground, radiation shielded control rooms. If this all seems remote, please read the history of Islam and how 12 million in russia were killed after WW2. The plants mutated due to solar radiation and were harvested by the rover to be sent back to china for testing to be used in a biological attack on the United States.

An Experiment Cut Short The LME received the signal to activate the water pump and begin seed germination soon after touchdown, and Chinese media started reporting on the successful sprouting of the cotton seeds on January 14th.
So a Lunar night is only half of that. Would be curious to know! Why is called the dark side of the moon if there is a Word has it, news people have been known to get other stuff wrong, also. Many folks already werent as anal about topics as you are now.
Have we spent enough bauds on this one? May I go now? Sir, you can go to the dark side.
