a call to scientists to genetically modify humans so we can live in space and other planetary environments

Hawking has argued that humans must colonize space in order to survive and thrive. “Sooner or later disasters such as an asteroid collision or a nuclear war could wipe us all out,” he told Britain’s Royal Society in a 2006 speech. “But once we spread out into space and establish independent colonies, our future should be safe.”

here’s what we’ve got to do.

scientists, u have to start figuring out how u can genetically modify humans so we can live in space.

i think the problem is that our bodies are holding us back. (uh oh this is getting weird.)

but, u can’t just let loose a brain into space. it’ll explode. and how will it do anything for it wants to do  – like things u need your arm and legs for and to move about?

so, maybe scientists need to modify our whole bodies so that:

  1. we stay intact and not hurt in *any* pressure/gravity environment, heat, cold, acidity or alkaline-y levels (i.e. we won’t explode in space or on other planets with wildly diff environments than earth’s and
  2. we can survive without the oxygen mixture on earth, but can adapt to any crazy planet environment’s environment
  3. if we lose an arm, leg or organ, we should grow back a new one (note to scientists: look into the lizards that grow back tails.)

this doesn’t sound very promising or fun. maybe we were meant to live and die on this planet. i suppose its worth a shot, but are we setting ourselves up for disappointment? but a small part of me wants to encourage some crazy scientist to keep trying.
