Was the budgie a Nirvanah fan?
Reports on the fourth Case For Mars conference held last June in Boulder, Colo. at which Yoji Ishikawa, a scientist from the Ohbayashi Corporation of Japan declared that there would be 150 Japanese settlers living on Mars by the year 2057. Controversial views from other Japanese participants.
MARS HABITATION 2057
Mars, the red planet, may someday soon become a second home for mankind. At Obayashi, we looked into the future, to the 100th anniversary of Sputnik, the first artificial satellite to orbit earth in 1957. And we devised a Mars Habitat for adventuresome space colonists in 2057. The habitat is located at 20 degrees north and 70 degrees west, near Kasei Vallis, close to Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the solar system, and to Valles Marineris, which stretches for 4,000 km.
The habitat consists of a pressurized dome-shaped terrarium, capsule-type living quarters, a Martian farm, and so on. It is designed to support 150 people. Mars has an atmosphere, ice, and arable soil. Its natural resources could provide for human existence without supplies from Earth. Even oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water could be processed from the Martian environment to supply the habitat and its people.
So just got my laptop computer back from the repair shop.
Lesson learned: do not spill wine on your keyboard!
I see no obvious weapons, maybe it's a research or ELINT ship from another European navy?
New wine belongs on new keyboards! ...or something like that, wasn't it? :shifty:
