Aliens resurrecting

while watchign a documentary about how water and other compounds for life as we know it, are found throughout the solar system I have begun puzzling at history. Early universe history that is.

The organic compounds that were delivered to (probably all the planets of our solarsystem) earth by comets had to have come from somewhere.

Panspermia?
Maybe, bacteria and what makes them, are very hard to kill. They can lie dormat in frozen cores of comets for aeons and then thaw when the thing crashes.
The supposed discovery of alien bugs in the upper atmosphere seems to support that theory.
It is confirmed, however, that at least components of nucleic acid are present in comets.

Selfinsemination?
Our sun is a third generation star, meaning that after the big bang a star formed. Much bigger, much brighter and much hotter than ours. It burned out quite fast (in stellar terms), blew up and left material behind that hasn’t been there before.

During the normal fusion process of a sun burning there is Helium created by fusion of Hydrogen. But in a supernova all the other stuff is created! Everything that we know, and are!
It is all created in a violent explosion.

The second generation star might already have had a planet with life on it, or at least a primordial soup sloshing around in it. Once that one blew up these building blocks of life might have remained withing the zone of destruction, our sun formed in that cloud, so did our planets, and earth. The entire system might have brought life to itself. Or it happened like this and life came from somewhere else entirely. (Go back to Panspermia)

Omnipresence?
Perhaps life is just like the religous people claim for their gods: Omnipresent.
It has a chance to sprout everywhere in the universe, and does so quite often. Only recently remnants of a solarsystem had been discovered in which a planet once had existed that consisted of 20% water! (Earth consists only of 0.02% water, the rest is rock. Please, don’t confuse the entirity of the planet with just the surface.)
Just think about that. A planet that is 20% water! How much life could be there?!
A friggin lot.
Perhaps there were water aliens. Maybe they built spaceships and left their planet before the star died taking their homeworld with it. Someday they might turn up on our little planet, a rather dry spot for them, but it might suffice.
Perchance they drill down into Europa’s surface or Enceladus’s and make a base there?
What we might find out there in the universe is beyond count. Beyond imagination. We will find life, sooner or later (if we don’t kill ourselves before then, that is)

What ever the truth is, it is beyond us for the moment, but we will find out sooner or later. Perhaps there is life based on other substances than carbon? Who knows. Let’s land on Titan, and find out. I figure it is the best spot to look for alien life based on other elements than carbon.

I hope we discover some sort of alien life within my lifetime.

Jumping from Space

(please note: most of this stuff was written shortly after the SpaceJump…btw: any productnames that AREN’T real by this day, I hereby claim intellectual ownership of the name!)

Since Felix Baumgartner’s spacejump I concluded, Apple should jump the trend of corporate space exploration.

Since RedBull has a better space program than NASA or ESA – at least people wise – I’m convinced with all the money Apple has, it could come up with even greater stuff for future generations, and the Hipsters can say “I liked space before it was cool!” (to which all the trekkies out there will reply with the Vulcan hand greeting “No, WE liked space before it was cool”).

But seriously.

If apple went to space they could have all kinds of cool Apple branded shit floating around. Their spacestation (for wealthy tourists) could be called iSpace or iOrbit, and communication with earth is done via iTalk.

Their version of a shuttle will be the iFly.

They even could take over SETI and smuggle it in the background of iTunes, the feature cannot be turned off and will be called iAlien. It sorts through the space signals, much like Seti, but the user will never know whether his computer helped in finding shit. The iAlien will also be included in all Apple products that have an internet connection: iPod, iPad, iPhone.

But I digress.

The toilet aboard iSpace will be designated iCrap, right before you go on a space walk in the apple branded and designed spacesuit iWalk.

You can also reach the new mothership via a space elevator called the “iLift”.

BUT!

This is only the first station along the way to deeper space. Commercial lunar colony “iMoon” will be the next step along the way to “iMars”. Air supply in all of these stations will be called “iBreathe”, and in the greenhouses of the stations on Moon and Mars they have iTrees, that grow iFood!

First Apple has to sponsor another crazy man jumping from the edge of space and call the event “iBasejump”.

Where and when was it conceived that Corporations should go into space? Especially corporations that would take REAL exploration and commercialize it?

RedBull would have cameras EVERYWHERE, and life broadcast every thing that happens on the RedBull spacestation via their own TV channels. Apple would call everything “i-“, as showed above. “Hey we found an unusual rock in the plains of mars, we call it the iRock”. Their logo feces would be smeared EVERYWHERE.

If this continues, soon we’ll have a commercial spacestation called “iSpace” orbiting earth in the shape of bitten apple, waking the unnerving feeling of a deathstar pointed at earth in some of us.

Why do the US cut NASA’s budget into little bits and spends a multitude of that money on fucking airconditioning in the fucking desert?

Just the airconditioning! Not war assets or something, just the fucking airconditioning! You know, if it’s too hot – DON’T GO THERE! Drop your bombs and sod off.

No we leave space exploration to corporations.

You can map out where these corporations will settle on mars already! Some Linux/Unix corporation will camp inside Olympusmons, not only might some still present geothermal heat provide power for them, but the mountain shields them from radiation – which will come down to Mars’ surface since there ain’t a Magnetosphere – plus, they will not have to build any Windows …

Hard competition at Olympus Mons with fucking apple who would rename the mountain for the “iMars” station into “iVolcano”…

Redbull would stage races in the asteroidbelt together with NASCAR, just for shits and giggles.

Operating from their Martian Orbital jumping station.

I can totally see RedBull hogging shit from the Red Planet in heart beat. Just as I can see Apple smearing its Brand logo in the rusty red martian sand.

Now the only corporation hellbent on settling on Venus – a planet so inhospitable we named it after the goddess of love – will be Microsoft.

Why?

Because they love harsh conditions.

Windows IS a harsh condition!

The first three attempts to land a probe will end in the thing freezing up, the fourth and fifth will veer off course the sixth, seventh and eighth will burn up and/or crash the ninth, as they are settling for just a lunar colony, will be a triumphant success. Everything will go on just like that.

Meanwhile NASA and ESA will announce that they have discovered a new fuel and promptly get sued by apple because the molecular structure of that fuel looks like an iPad.

Samsung and Google wont bother with the Inner Solarsystem and go right for a cutting edge base on planetoid Pluto.

Just watch out for the Apple Mothership in the shape of a bitten-off Apple, because our fears were correct – it IS a deathstar…
