^ Is that so? Well Bio people don't like physics people very much either. *breaks bottle on head*

^^^^ and we philosophers are all way above your childish, trivial immaturated rivalry :)
*taps on your shoulders comiserating*

Untill human race will get there with the technology of next 100 years, it will change it's physics and behaviours after several generation in space, without gravity most of the time,
without much space to live in, boring food and less pchysical activites. so it would have larger brais to controll the space ship and navigate through space or something, and less muscles... they would look like aliens to us....so maybe a humanoid race of another planet or galaxy have discovered us decades, centuries or milleniums ago and will / have arrive/d with "alien-like" appearance...

Our technology is not quite there yet. If everything goes to perfection, it'll take a really really REALLY long time.

And I wonder.. would it be easier to give birth in space... turn the mother upside down and push?

Oh ^ thats cause the philosophers are too high smoking their weed to do much =]

Well i think in a space ship it would be easyer to breed the embryos in laboratories.
pilots, navigators or scientist can't efford to be taken off the work for such a long time...
and also it would avoid ppl get couples, to avoid trivial rivalry between lovers...just pick out athe best eugenic constellation without thinking of ethics or morals (religion should be forbidden on board)...


Yeah! You Physic ppl should smoke as well! especially the Astro guys, there must be some way to get there faster, find it out pls #D

So we should just breed like rabbits? Smexy. But what about food? Sigh.. so...futuristic..

And I'm in mechanical engineering. I get off on gadgets and robotic arms

well thats the problem, the supplies for the crew...we could start to send in regular intervals supply ships for next 80 years so that we have fast ships till then or later and pick up the supplies on the way, but thats too risky it would be different if we were biomechanical, eat energy from the quantum reactor core

Then how shall we feed the pigs? with our own supplies?

Just to add alil physics to the board, it is technically possible to reach an object 20 light years away even with stuff we could build in the foreseeable future. the thing is at the speed of light time stops and the closer u get to that speed the slower time gets (read up on the twins paradox if u want a bit sized summary of the physics involved.) Passengers on a ship travelling on a ship travelling near the speed of light (it is impossible to accelerate a macroscopic object all the way to the speed of light without literally turning it into light (electromagnetic waves) i.e destroying it and killing every1 on board.) would only experience a fraction of the time experienced by their friends and family watching them from earth. lol if u did a round trip u could come back nearly 40 years younger than the ppl u left behind.

Actually building a ship that could achieve such speeds is a problem though with anti-matter reactors and nuclear fusion no longer just sci-fi its conceivable that we could build something pritty damn fast in the future, if it could get there without killing every1 on-board is more difficult. You would need something in the way of a quantum super computer just to navigate at those speeds. Not happening for a good while but impossible it is not.

would it be enough for you to live on the moon?
it is possible in next 60 years or so, the japanese government has
an eye on the moon since the late 80'...

You could have a cylindrical shaped ship and rotate it around its long axis, creating a form of mock gravity through centrifugal force. As for boring food, how so? Fresh vegetables would be grown in hydroponic bays or gardens or even small farms; livestock would be bred and used for food...Essentially a generation ship would be an Earth in a bottle, to accommodate its human passengers...
