This is satire. We’re not like the Magrathean designer world – builders in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – Nowhere as advanced – But maybe it’s time to look to Mars, Europa, Titan, Enceladus to continue our journey in case something renders Earth completely uninhabitable. The only drawbacks are :
The lack of a magnetosphere on Mars to shield would – be colonists from radiation. They’d have to live beneath domed complexes or under the Martian surfaces or within crater walls. It would be a monstrous task terra – forming a planet sans magnetosphere.
Europa – Possible ocean beneath the ice, but otherwise non Earth – like.
Titan – Resembles Earth with a primordial ocean – of methane.
Enceladus – Icy, possible tenuous atmosphere
We could still live on these worlds, but not without transplanting oxygen – generating flora, possibly for use as a food source. Vegetarianism would likely be a lifestyle beyond Earth. Or production of a product like Soylent Green. 🙂
Terraforming these worlds would be dicey for the immediate future. & forget Venus. It would be hard to live on, much less terraform, a giant ball of lava covered by layers of carbon dioxide. Mercury, MAYBE.
It’s too bad there’s no DIY for creating an Earth 2. We should try to protect & properly maintain this one until there’s no choice but to leave.
Is it too late for the Earth as we’ve known it? Maybe it’s time to start thinking of building an Earth 2.0, suggests satirist Jon Methven.

& 3 – D printers can apparently be used to print somewhat BIZARRE art, too.
I think if it could print ” Audrey II ” from the musical ” Little Shop of Horrors ” or a small model of ” Magenta ” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show ” that would be interesting, too. 🙂
While UK architect William Stanley has recently launched a 3D printed jewelry shop, with which to execute his 3D printable creativity, it may be his 3D printed Skele-structure sculpture that stands heads above some of the other 3D printed work in the industry. The Skele-structure is a design that artfully combines 3D printed replicas of […]

Hmmmmmmmmmmm……. This is CRAZY ( In a GOOD way 🙂 ) !!
If they can make robots like this as toys, how soon will it be till AFFORDABLE custom – made domestic & other personal types of robots can be produced & made available to anyone with $ 500 – $ 1,500 that they can comfortably part with sans / going into near – bankruptcy ?
Maybe even robots that can help manage environmental concerns ?
If even a FRACTION of the material I’ve been reading has any weight, our world only has to hang in there just a tad bit longer ( 15 – 20 years ? ).
