you know what we are going to find? Rocks. You know what we are going to find on the next plant? frozen rocks or melted rocks. All we ever find is rocks....or flaming balls of gas.

In the end, it's all just the same old hydrogen atoms. Smiley

Not quite, there isn't a significant amount of hydrogen (molecules and/or atoms) in rock.

I mean it's all the same anyway. I was refering to fushion, but breaking it into even smaller bits might make more sense for the sake of the analogy.

I liked the sky-crane thingy. Can't I get something like that to get to work faster?

I'd positively like to strip her electron shell off and get covalent, knowwhatimean?  But I lack the charm, people say I'm too strange.

what I asked myself about that crane, did they lower the rover first and then, when they were approaching the surface, pulled it back in again to lower the relative velocity towards the surface? Cheesy

ps: of course are there other lifeforms out there(statistically-speaking), only questions is if we can every reach them in anyway before our solar systems stops existing^^

I doubt it, since that would potentially expose the rover to the exhaust.   The crane couldn't stop firing the retros beforehand to avoid that, since it needed to get clear after it let go (plus, unless it was way heavier, it would lose its leverage)

well like I said before, good chance that, if we are just talking about lifeforms in general, the moon europa may have something... of course either bacteria or underwater-plants that feed off planet warmth... in best case wierd fish. Nothing too exciting but you know...

I dont think it did that in the animation I saw. However, I can imagine that a sky crane thing like that is higly stable, since so much weight is hanging from the crane (the thing weighs about the same as a car). Much like a parachute, only with rockets.
