Hitching a ride on an extrasolar object – Take lots of supplies and plan for 10000 years

Hitching a ride on an extrasolar object – Take lots of supplies and plan for 10000 years — I was working out what is needed to image nearby stars and planets. But I remembered that Oumuamua extrasolar object.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heliosphere#Heliopause   If another one passes by, or there was some way to catch up, Elon

Humans can colonize Milky Way Galaxy through intelligent devices, and search for gravity signals

Humans can colonize Milky Way Galaxy with intelligent devices, and search for gravity signals. — Galactic civilizations using intelligent devices can live billions of years. So the most likely “species” for human devices to meet would be intelligent devices. Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope might look for intelligent messages in the galactic plane. And space

Colonizing Titan, Colonizing Deserts, Giving AIs to tens of millions to do trillions

Desting: Let Me Explain Why It Would Be Preferable To Colonize Titan Instead Of Mars at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_InuOf8u7e4 The deserts on Earth are a lot closer; would benefit humans and related DNA species immediately. And, planet Earth in the long run. People are planting billions of trees, but still not in a sustainable manner. You want

Start from space, gather from space, analyze and process in space

Scott Manley: NASA Spacecraft Returns Extraterrestial Material To Earth. Scaring Scientists During Landing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQi-CN8Vn1w A space lab for this kind of thing, so you do not land it, do not shake it or break it. Less expensive to send probes from space, gather samples from space, return them to a space lab. (Do not allow

China should create permanent stations in Moon orbit now and StarLink for the Moon, “First city ready for humans”

DongFang Hour:  China’s Plan for a CREWED Lunar Landing in 2029 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-KrMfIkDdg I would be much more impressed if they would send a permanent station to Moon orbit now, have some crew stay in rotations of a few months. Send rovers and instruments down to the surface operated by crew in orbit. Get Elon Musk

Richard Behiel – on linear regression for 3D gravitational calibration, and 3D gravitational imaging

Richard Behiel: The Beauty of Linear Regression (How to Fit a Line to your Data) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=my3lsV-VQjs Richard Behiel, The vector tidal gravity signal from the sun moon and earth at a superconducting gravimeter station is simple Newtonian GM/r^2. The suns vector acceleration on the station, minus the suns acceleration on the center of the earth.
