All the lightbulb says is "You were born." and for some reason that's the harshest feels of the whole post.

You were born too late.
You will never explore your Mom.
Feels bad, man.

Actually, they're going to start colonizing Mars in eight years.
There's a website if you want to sign up.

You were born a thousand years to late to become a fossil after you die. You were born a thousand years too early to be transplanted into a robot. Feelsbadman.

When were you born? The first people to explore Mars will almost definitely be in this century, and will quite likely be within 2 decades.

For those who don't know much about exploring Mars: If you can send a couple people, you're actually much closer already to sending a lot of people to make small colonies than you are for say, the moon. Because the moon orbits the earth, you can go there and come back literally any day. But because of Mars' orbit, there are only 2 options (usually only the worse one): a 5 week stay on the surface after months of travelling, or a 2 year stay in total. Meaning you must have full life support, etc.

So don't count yourself out because of when you are, and instead make sure you don't get counted out because of who you are, because that'll be the bigger issue.

my dad and stepmom are already signed up for colonizing mars
they were something like 4&5 on the list
I don't know why, but this actually sounds like a better last goodbye than a funeral to me

We are born just in time to explore earth. 500 years ago you should be one of the "lucky" few to get to another continent, get a dissease and die in a random battle far from home. Now you just have to buy an airplane ticket and YOU will discover places YOU have never been too.

Russia plans to send a manned crew to Mars by 2032? I think.

Obv' America has to one up Russia so we'll probably be landing on Mars around 2020-2030. I'd say colonization and terraforming of Mars will happen around 2040-2070, so you may be old, but if you play your cards right, you may find yourself aboard the shuttle to colonize Mars.

2032 you say?
THEY KNOW, THEY ARE PREPARING.
IT'S AN EARLY ESCAPE PLAN.

We haven't explored the bottom of the ocean and the deepest jungles yet. If you want to become an explorer, you still can.

I think about this all the time. I've always wanted to explore space, and i don't think i'm going to be able to even leave the Earth in my lifetime. This is probably why i'm trying to become a theoretical physicist and/or astrophysicist. Even though i can't physically go into deep space, at least i can study and make theories about it.

On the flip side, there is also a lot of information we can learn right here on Earth. You don't need to go into space to research quantum physics.

I've also always though that the government isn't funding NASA nearly enough. They have the potential to do so much, yet they get a very small amount of money, and their budget is STILL being cut every year. It really is ridiculous that our government doesn't understand how vital space travel and colonization are. If we don't move somewhere else, we're going to be wiped out. It is an inevitability. But no, end up OVERbudgeting military assets and stimulus packages that don't even work anyways. We're too focused on the now, we need to use some foresight and see how what we're doing is slowly killing us. But we're kept in the dark, and so is space exploration.

You are born at the most perfect time to explore the galaxy.
I mean, just look at curiosity, we actually sent a rover to another planet while at its closest, it's only 35.8 million miles away.
Just look at the NASA picture archive
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html
I mean, sure, only a small percentage of the human population can actually go out and touch the surface of the moon, but, it was the same thing with Columbus and his sailors. Not everyone in Europe could get on Columbus's ships to explore the Atlantic.
Now go out, buy a telescope, and explore the Galaxy, damn it Or, if you're poor, go to the link I put in this comment.
