James Cameron Now Headed Out of Space

Posted: April 21st, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
James Cameron Now Headed Out of SpaceSubmit Comment
James Cameron recently reached Earth's deepest point, the Mariana Trench, in a solo dive inside a unique submarine. Now comes word that he has joined a list of investors, which includes Ross Perot Jr and Google executives Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, to take part in a new space venture.

Planetary Resources is a company that promises to "expand Earth's resource base" by extracting raw materials from non-Earth sources and thereby adding "trillions of dollars to the global GDP."

The idea is based on the fact that asteroids can carry more steel than than on Earth. And steel is just one of countless of resources that can be mined. But for that to happen, the company must figure out how to safely land on an asteroid and mine it with limited gravity.

Any company that successfully accomplish this, will not only make resources on Earth abundant, but will also put trillions of dollars into their pockets. Ironically, the villainous humans in Cameron's "Avatar" attempted to do just that by driving-off the Navi in order to mine the moon of Pandora for its precious material.

Oh the joy! I have always dreamed of the day when such honorable corporate executives can not only mine asteroids, but other planets too! They can be more like Earth! I mean, who does not want to see other planets become desecrated putrid polluted versions of their former natural selves? I know I do!!

tomorrow: hey guys, let's get an asteroid into orbit to get metals, it's going to be totally save!

how is this not going to end well?

That's great, instead of making Terminator 5 or Avatar, James Cameron wants to go out of space.

Still scientists should stop this "searching for a new life on a undiscovered planet" thing.

I am happy the way Earth is becuase asking for questions and life on a new planet is a greed thing.

Ask for more, lose a lot.

"The idea is based on the fact that asteroids can carry more steel than than on Earth. And steel is just one of countless of resources that can be mined. But for that to happen, the company must figure out how to safely land on an asteroid and mine it with limited gravity."

Actually, that's NOT the most difficult part. The hardest aspect of asteroid mining is returning the material to earth!

"I was born at least 500 years too soon."

You and me both, but then you and I have no clue how wonderful or how awful earth of 2500 AD will be, really.

I do like though how more and more, the government is receding from space and private businesses are filling the gap.

Just yesterday, DARPA released a news brief on their Falcon HTV2.

http://www.darpa.mil/Our_Work/TTO/Programs/Falcon_HTV-2.aspx

Unfortunately, the material involved couldn't handle the laminar stresses.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypersonic_Technology_Vehicle_2

f*cker can reach any point in the world in under an hour by flying at Mach 20, that is, twenty times the spend of sound.

"The Sydney Morning Herald notes that when flying its fastest, the craft could cover 17,000 kilometres, the distance between London and Sydney, in 49 minutes."

Wow. And it is designed to also reach low earth orbit.

Well, you have to think about the parallels to Christ with this one. Both James Cameron and Jesus Christ have the same initials. Both have their apologists. Both have their disciples. Both spent a lot of time telling others how to live. Both proclaimed themselves King of the World. Both have terrible track records with women. Both descended into deep dark pits (Christ into a cave, Cameron into the abyss). And both eventually ascended into Heaven. The only thing left to make them identical is to nail Cameron to a cross and call it a day.

What Would Cameron Do?

"cool just to hop in a spaceship and leave this rock"

I wish I cold put into words what I think about that idea. I really can't. I think sometimes that there must be wonders beyond any man's imagination out there in space. I mean, what's going on next door in Andromeda? Right next door. What worlds, what life, what civilizations?

Sounds familiar. Dead Space?

than than on Earth?

Full props to James Cameron. He gets a lot of stick from everyone but he does his own stunts! The guy's got some questionable visions, but I love him anyway. And now you can remove the gun from my he...

Of course some type of ray-gun or laser weapon is recommended for such interstellar jaunts,Crom knows what lurks out there.

Oh and the title is once again a lie. Cameron isn't planning a trip "out of space" for himself, he's part of a venture to mine a rock delivered into lunar orbit.

Go see CABIN IN TH WOODS. One of the best "horror" films I've seen in a long time. Its right up there with The Mist, Evil Dead 2, and In the Mouth of Madness for me. Great entertainment for fans of the genre!

To the Moon with Cameron!

@ SAC - Had high hopes for it, loved the concept, basically gives a reason for every horror movie! just thought the execution got a little dumb.

Steel is man made, and thus not found naturally occuring in asteroids. The word you are looking for is IRON.
minkowski writes:
on April 22nd, 2012 at 5:29:51 PM

^^I think he meant to say that steel could be produced by factories on the asteroid, or in-space, for stations and ships, which is the long-term plan.

Putman,you son of a bitch,you gave 'cabin in the woods' 10 out 10...movie was sh*t...made no sense whatsoever....
SACdaddy writes:
on April 22nd, 2012 at 8:20:17 PM

@AYT BALL: Yeah I think it tried too hard at times to be different or funny which lead to some poor execution, but I thought that was far over powered by an unforgiving story that ultimately paid off in the end. I had fun watching it get crazy with the familiar conventions and then take things to another level entirely. Like I said before, it reminds me a lot of The Mist and Evil Dead.

@Rambo: You didn't understand it? It went to great lengths from the beginning to explain why everything was happening. If anything, they may have taken a little more time to explain some of the history behind the what was happening before all hell broke lose in the film. Knowing how the "situation" got to the point where the film begins actually might not be a bad idea for a prequel/sequel.
