How realistic/possible is a manned mission to mars by 2060?

I'd put it around 90% by 2060, but that's because everyone is talking about it like it's going to happen in the 2030's. Honestly, if we could work out the whole radiation problem then we could almost do it now if someone was willing to throw enough money at it.

I know science doesn't care about our feelings, but tell me of any alternate theories other than everything freezing to death or being ripped to shreds that allows something, anything to keep on going and surviving.

Can we eventually develop the technology that allows us to "jump" to a new, younger or possibly truly unending universe with different laws of thermodynamics to carry ourselves on?

Hold me, /sagan/.

look at it from an information/data point of view
of course this is just highly hypothesized
everything has a counter part[] cold/hot dark/illuminated push/pull etc.
some theories state that a dark hole is a counter part to a white hole which spews out matter (how are they created and are they confirmed? Who the fuck knows and no) {but dark holes weren't either until a few years ago}
imagine being sucked a dark whole your matter might be crushed as to an extend of atoms or even further, now what happens if that matter gets funneld throw a small needle point and spewed out on the other side? Well it might contain the same mass, same elements, same amount of protons, electrons, neutrons blah blah, but who says it is assembled the same way it got in? So maybe your conscious/selfawareness or what the fuck do I know gets lost its just dead matter after that transfer. Or maybe we are all wrong and nothing really happens to us as beings really from ego point of perspective.

>On the left we see what galaxies should look like according to our understanding of gravity, On the right is what we observe

It's kind of like a car traveling doing 30mph and hitting a wall, vs two cars going at each other at 30mph. The two cars' speed both driving towards each other will the impact seem like its 60mph, and thus will seem to be moving faster. On the edges the stars aren't under as much gravity from each other so they're slowly making they're way until they're feeling each others' gravity more and more to increase the velocity.

The mass of energy making up the Galaxy had spinning inertia during it's original conception, and it's simply maintaining it's own momentum. It's a single system in that it shares the same mathematical/energetic origin and the evidence of this is obvious by observing it moving as one mass. The picture on the left is a basic misunderstanding of cosmology and physics. It is looking at the stars around the Galaxy as mere debris and studying it as of the center mass of the Galaxy should be effecting this external debris.

I have no fucking clue what I'm talking about, but I highly doubt this is a real debate in the way it has been presented here.

Hard to say, but the fact it is a pattern now is a problem. The key thing is that issue needs to be popularized beyond space-related media more. As soon as other ISS nation starts suggesting it is a sign of growing Russian incompetence (the most likely scenario), even if it isn't, Rogozin and the rest of Roscosmos is gonna want to save face and will have to figure out what's going on or put it a stop to it (in the unlikely event it sabotage).

With all the recent climate events of this brave new time period in earth history we've started to call the Anthropocene i've started thinking about the great filter and Fermi Paradox.

Maybe climate shifts due to sentient species discovering hydrocarbons as a source of energy to fuel their industrialization IS the great cosmic filter.
They all fuck up their homeworlds beyond repair before they realize what the fuck they are actually doing and that#s why we haven't come across any aliens yet.

It's a train a thought i've had for a while now and the more I observe humanity the more likely it seems.

What do you think of this, /sagan/ists?

Maybe we're the only intelligent lifeforms to exist in the present but maybe intelligent life came and went eons ago, before The Sun and the planets formed creating our own solar system.
