    Not the iPhone...haha. That would shatter if you put it at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

    NASA isn't the sole space agency on the planet :holmes:

    Regardless, suggesting that they'll shut down is just conjecture. What I was particularly referring to in that post isn't something that costs very much anyway :mmm: (it would probably cost a lot once it gets bigger but I think the government will think it worth it, and if not Europe/Russia/China can take it up :dontknow:)
    Fair rebuttal to my statement . Though it isn't just conjecture, I have read into the situation and heard directly from a government official as to their plans with NASA. I can't really go into anymore detail as it is quite confidential
    .
    I suppose you're correct, though I'm quite skeptical to the possibility of aliens, there simply isn't any concrete evidence from telescopes, rovers and phonograms(I think that's what their called) to back it up.

    I love the band, if it wasn't for Marianas Trench I wouldn't know about the actual geographic feature.

    What exactly do you mean..?

    y=f(x) is basically the equation of a line/curve...

    :dontknow:
    I think it's called translations of a line? I don't really know

    translations = changing the position of a line on a graph, usually done by column vectors.

    This sentence doesn't really make sense, considering that the number of "rules" involving y=f(x) is probably quite astronomical.
    Sorry, stressing

    There's at least 6, and I've lost my book so I don't know what any of them are, the only thing I remember about it is y=f(x) :confused:

    Yeah the problem I have with China is that they're seriously nationalistic People shouldn't be restricted from working with this stuff because they weren't born in a country with a space program :lol:
    I agree. But I do think part of the reason why the Chinese are a little too proud of their achievements is because they've been shut out of many international programs. They were rebuffed by the US from joining the International Space Station in 2009, for example, which is why people are making a big deal of how they're setting up a station of their own.

    I think less protectionism/patriotism when it comes to space is needed. The LHC is an excellent example of how Science can be conducted collaboratively world-wide, for the universal benefit of all. I don't see why space programs should be any different.

    Excuse me, sir, but I beg to differ.

    "Heard directly from a government official?" :holmes: I should say that if this was a US official there is no Official Secrets Act, so you wouldn't be under any obligations to withhold confidential info

    Curiosity found evidence to suggest that life could have been supported on Mars at one point :lol: Regardless of this, it's almost a statistical certainty that life on other worlds exists (if we were literally the only life in the universe, I might be more easily convinced to convert to a religion :mmm: Although I still probably wouldn't )

    Plenty of countries love the fist-pumping nature of discovering a new scientific development first, but hate it when other countries ask to join in. Sure, I'm a right-wing capitalist with beliefs that people should try and fend for themselves, but I acknowledge there are areas of society where such a method just doesn't work. For some things, it's just better to be collaborative rather than going it alone. :awesome:
