3D PRINTING AND SPACE EXPLORATION

Already we've seen the application of 3-D printing to space exploration, when recently NASA allegedly scanned a Martian rock and printed it back on Earth to have a closer look. Now, if you're like me, you probably don't for a minute believe NASA went to all that trouble over a mere rock, but probably wanted to look at something entirely different, something that may have appeared suspiciously "artificial" perhaps.

But now yet another possibility is emerging. Suppose one found evidence on Mars(or any other nearby body for that matter) of microbial life, and had the ability to sequence that microbial life-form's genome. This could then be beamed back to Earth, and with the requisite technology, 3-D printed here for study. If that sounds fanciful and ridiculous, read on:

Our Best Bet for Colonizing Space May Be Printing Humans on Other Planets

In other words, forget about sending probes to Mars, scooping something up in the soil, and returning the probe, and the sample, back to Earth. Just "scan" and press "print." As the article notes, the possibility even has one scientist suggesting its past use:

“Maybe that process has happened before,” Steltzner told me over the phone this weekend. “Maybe that's how we got here.”

If so, then that implies the technology to do so, and that we're "not from here" and that something technologically sophisticated by way of human civilization existed in ancient times. It's a whopper of a statement to make, and full of enormous implications, illustrating again how hugely the "worm has turned" in recent years, as more and more in the mainstream are voicing opinions that only a few years ago were only voiced in the alternative community.

The article goes on to note that the same Steltzner also proposes another idea:

"One idea floated by Steltzner is that we beam the human genome into the universe through radio waves—like we're already doing to try to communicate with intelligent life—and see if anyone receives the transmission and can figure out how to interpret it."

Before the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Agency jumps on that bandwagon, however, it might want to consider the possibility that this may not be such a great idea, for if there is any ET out there advanced enough to get from "there" to "here," and if that ET should be hostile, giving him or her or it a copy of our genome is probably a very bad idea, for he or she or it could conceivably come up with some very nasty bio-weapons.

But if you're thinking all this is still impossible, consider the following sobering words from the article:

"It sounds far-fetched, but it’s an area of biotech geneticists are currently exploring. Being able to store and transmit genetic code the same as any other kind of data is the principle behind the “life printing” gadget being developed by biologist Craig Venter, the US biologist that’s famous for helping map the human genome and creating the first synthetic life.

"Venter is developing a “digital biological converter” device that can transport a digital DNA file, at the speed of light, and recreate the original lifeform in the new location from that data. He calls it biological teleportation, but it’s more like a cosmic fax.

"Venter believes the process could be used to “print” alien life, if there is any, here on Earth. If, say, the Mars rover discovers microbes on the planet, it could beam back digital copies of the genomes to sequence here on Earth. There's a prototype already, which unsurprisingly has attracted the support of NASA and DARPA.

"So if we believe it's possible to print a Martian organism on Earth, could it work the other way around? At this point, Venter’s experiment is only tackling life-printing at the individual gene level, but single-celled organisms like bacteria are next in line. “More complex creatures,” the New York Times reported, “earthly or Martian, will probably never be possible.”"

Thank goodness for The New York TImes, huh? People once said man could never travel faster than 30mph, because the sheer speed could be a health hazard to our human bodies. Impossible? probably not. Computers, aircraft, automobiles, submarines were all once impossible too. Venter's life-printing gadget is but a Model T, a biplane held up and together by canvas and bailing wire.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Interesting article!

    I think the thing that annoys me the most about visiting one of these sites belonging to the scientific ‘committee of conformity’ is having to read all those mind-numbing comments from the brainwashed victims of western science, or, the ‘evotards’ as I prefer to label them.

    It truly is depressing to see so many minds that believe they have all the answers gathered together in one place!

  2. I’m afraid most scientists have a lot to learn. Firstly they don’t know how the universe was formed and secondly they don’t know where “we” come from. Main stream scientists, using the physics of Heaviside haven’t a chance to bust all the mysteries of today’s world, and all this talk about 3D printing rocks is just “wind”. The problem is that mainstream scientists don’t want to look where the answers really are, ie metaphysical or esoteric, the funny thing is, that that’s where the answers are. Newton, Descartes and Leibniz are some of the most prominent scientists of the forgotten era, but they did understand that there was a hidden science that was suppressed in ancient times. The Hermetica has all the hallmarks of that ancient science and our “modern” scientists wont go there. So once again our hidden human history returns to bite us on the butt, and 3D printing rocks on the Moon or Mars isn’t going to benefit mankind, but they would like us to think it will, FOOLS.

  3. how about a 3-D printing exposing the Vatican and its last (if not all) Popes, priests, pastors, etc. and their minions?- all of these clergy/religious institutions are fronts (most clergy don’t realize they’re pawns)-

    we continue to be lead to look off-world for things when we should be looking at terrestrial problems; we’ve been lead to believe the enemy is “out there” when the enemy is within and commands technology we’ve been told only exists “out there”-

    I wouldn’t doubt “now that we have the formula right we can send ET back home”- fine- but how does that help the normal person?- it seems the correct formula (like start with non-existant money) not only keeps ETs at bay but continues to enslave humanity at an ever increasing rate-

  4. Wait a minute. If the secret space program has ships that can travel all over the solar system and beyond, then why would they need to 3-D print anything? Just get in the Enterprise and go there in person.

  5. When you drill down beyond the origins of the dna or its complement, you get to the eternal question of fate vs chance.
    I for one will go with chance, even though, the house wins; the outcomes, can and do beat the odds.
    Probability maybe the way,
    but when the observer comes to the dance,
    chance is a game changer.

  6. Like all these ideas science fiction has been there Orchid Cage publish by DAW distributed by Signet books forty years ago I guess. Dealt with idea reconstructing human being from data sent to a planet from local elements. I consider this part of a meme that humanity will never leave for the stars soon if ever. Just our masters don’t want us Utermensch committing Drapetomania and get away from them.

  7. Take this in conjunction with the mind scanning research mentioned in the Doctor’s post of 19 June and things become very interesting indeed.

  8. Whether it does so furtively, or even with a malicious intent, the black sector’s mad race toward a man-made omnipotence often seems less objectionable to me than the aspiration itself is remarkable. This world ought not be left to Lotus Eaters alone. What exists to be achieved ought to be attempted — if only to be mastered and then prudently laid aside.

    Personally, though, I wouldn’t choose to be transported through a 3-D printer for fear it might run out of paper.

  9. If they’ve really got the ability to duplicate down to the DNA level, I’ve got to wonder how fast their output has to be. Ain’t gonna happen at 2 Mbps. This would also indicate that the Replicator (for food, equipment, etc) is basically here. Hmm, wonder if they have those tricorder thingies as well 🙂

    Hear that toilet flushing in the distance? It’s the American empire.

  10. As a method of studying what creatures could be on Mars, perhaps.

    But going the other way and sending your clone’s information to be built on Mars, or further away, has some problems.

    The biggest difficulty is that what turns genes on and off to do their work is still a big mystery. That’s why cloning a sheep takes inserting the cloned cell nucleus into another sheep’s fertilized egg that’s been emptied of its nucleus. (Then the mitochondrial DNA of that fertilized egg adds information to the resulting clone, making it not quite a clone. This raises some questions about Venter’s 2010 man made life story within the NYTimes link.)

    There’s a lot science doesn’t get about life, and this cloning idea, like a lot of GM, reinforces the idea that science has a near complete understanding of life. And I suspect that’s what we’re being sold here. Not the ability to send your information to another star system for copying.

    Real teleportation seems easier and more effective, but opens up other responsibilities.

    1. How is this like what Alain Aspect demonstrated?

      This whole use of radio waves seems like a conscious misdirection from what’s possible.
