Gérard I can't hear and the normal voice nor the same voice modified to sound afraid either. Can you ?

Not the same scale but a few days ago, I was walking 40kms, the weather was somewhat nippy and I was so happy to have a bench and a sun ray for my lunch, along with a wonderful view on the Seine and Paris (I was at St Germain-en-Laye): I didn't need anything else.

I was this week-end in Orsay (suburb of Paris), for a funeral. Of course, I was sad, because the dead man was a nice guy. But, on the other hand, I met a lot of interesting people. Also I went to a restaurant. There were waiters and waitresses, from every origin (black, arabian, asiatic, white...) but they were smiling and happy to work together. Unless it is not so easy to live in Paris, because of the high prices of accomodations. We were near a business zone (Courtaboeuf). It's lively and refreshing. Every one works, there is no hatred.

Patience

Message  MurielB le Lun 11 Avr - 14:50

Hi everyone ! Hi Rémy ! hi Gérard !
When we travel the time notion changes all the more so since my husband and I are retired. Before our life moved in time with the medical consultations and now we are free to organize our timetable as we wish. We walk a lot and not always around the place we live. Anyway we have to learn patience which is not so easy. There is always something which goes wrong. Buses will break down, flights will be delayed, and maps will occasionally be difficult to read. At the moment it is impossible to get connected to the network and I feel dispirited when I can't use my computer when I want.
Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.
Ok but it's easier said than done

MurielB a écrit:... I feel dispirited when I can't use my computer when I want...
Muriel,
I guess that in addition to bad connection, you get bad light
Wink
There's no verb such as "dispirited" hence no past participle... but a good adjective.

If we chose to leave Earth...

Message  gerardM le Jeu 11 Mai - 20:24

Howdy.

Big History Project


If we chose to leave Earth, how far would we have to go? What resources would we need and how long would it take us to reach our destination?
We can construct space stations anywhere, but it might be advantageous to build them close to Earth or in Earth’s orbit. Staying relatively close to the Sun is useful, as it can provide most, if not all, of the energy we need. Staying within Earth’s magnetosphere would provide some free protection from cosmic particle radiation.
The moon would be the closest option for an enclosed habitat. Mars is another option, but it’s farther away and would take months to reach, rather than days. This will limit the number of people who can be moved there.
The nearest potentially habitable exoplanet actually orbits Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to our Sun. This system is 4.25 light-years away, meaning it takes light 4.25 years to make the journey. But we can’t currently build any spacecraft that can achieve speeds anywhere approaching light (300,000 km/s). The fastest spacecraft we’ve ever built moved at about 253,000 km/h. At that speed, it would take 18,170 years to reach Proxima Centauri.
