Generational Spaceships are an awful unlikely proposal according to Kim Stanley Robinson, though there may be some interesting solutions to the challenges discussed.  Thought-provoking reading.

For you writers out there, here’s a few story seeds:

  • Earth takes a stab at a Generation ship – but when FTL is invented how does that affect everyone’s plans?
  • Robinson notes that a big problem with a generation ship is making it a mobile ecosystem.  What if you built one (say inside a rotating, hollowed-out asteroid)?  What happens when you go bigger than ship to a miniplanet?


Hey, is it just me or does this War of the Worlds Walker from an old book cover look a lot like a Star Wars AT-AT?


Another story lead – Jogger finds 4-foot dead alligator.
