In light of the recent International Space Station coverage, especially regarding the David Bowie Man and the first British national in space, I think it's about time to have a space thread. Space industry, space itself, space science.

Anyway, I'll start, what do people think about the proposed space mining ideas?

I like the sound of that. Do you have links to any news in particular or should I just google?

You mean apart from the others?

They had to become American citizens to go up.

Becoming an American citizen makes you no longer a British national?

Maybe, maybe not. Depends whether the rules say "Americans only" or "no foreigners". The FCC had rules saying "no foreigners", so Murdoch had to both take American citizenship and give up Australian citizenship.

While NASA were insistent on only taking their own nationals, the Soviets had no such qualms. They're the ones who took our actual first Briton in space.

Not specifically space related but Terraforming interests me.

How can an atmosphere be created an a planet that does not have one in a short space of time? Is it possible for us to do that now?

That's not true. Accepting any other citizenship incurred the loss of Australian citizenship until 2002, it's nothing to do with the FCC, or American law.

IIRC, it relates to him buying a bunch of TV stations in the 1980s that would go on to become the Fox network. He did in fact become an American citizen as a result of the legal requirement at the time that anyone owning a TV station in the US be a US national.

What I mean is that >>3211 is making a distinction between ""Americans only" or "no foreigners"" that was not a factor in Murdoch's case.
