    Maybe Newt is finally realizing that pandering to the whackjawed Social extremists is a losing venture?

    There is no decent reason to bar gays from getting married in America.

    Begs the question if Newt really ever was a Social Con himself.

    What makes you believe this? We still retain the capacity to launch sizable probes into space. And you don't need that much to simply use gravity to change the trajectory of a relatively large asteroid or comet if you detect it well enough in advance. What we don't have is a good way of stopping a good sized asteroid on short notice.

    Did Newt run out of women who would marry and divorce him? Is this his Plan B?



    Joking aside, that is pretty cool.

    Hehe, dude we can't stop a decent size asteroid, period! How is it that you think we have the science to stop a good sized asteroid even 20 years in advance?

    Newt has lots of grand ideas, which at their core premises aren't bad, but his problem to the GOP is that he inherently isn't anti-Government. Newt views Government in many ways that Clinton does: a tool to reach goals.
    And a moon base would be ridiculously expensive in a time frame where we are like to still be in double digit trillions in debt no? That is a grand idea indeed!

    Why do you say that? What's stopping us from taking the delivery systems use to deploy exploratory probes and use as a gravity tool to change the trajectory of an asteroid? Or better yet, release light and heat absorbing material into its path and let solar activity do that for us? The hardest part about that is finding them in time. Getting the tools up there isn't that hard and we do have the capacity right now to do so. What we can't do is reliably and safely stop a large asteroid on short notice. If we find it out 10 years from impact, that is well more then enough to solve the problem. Give a year or 6 months and we're reliant upon nukes. And that won't go well.

    Doing it in 10 years would be crazy. Doing it on 30? Not so much. The idea behind it is still solid. But we're better off getting fusion working first before we go to the Moon for fuel.

    By the time that it would be economically feasible to even consider constant lunar travel, we will most likely have advanced enough for on earth fuels to be plentiful. Algae shows promise. I'm not saying it's a stupid idea, it is just literally out of this world.
