Most hard sci-fi is dry, bleak, slow-paced, and written pretty boringly. Often with some pretentious political message or an earth-story that has no place in space hammered into it. It works in movies and literature from the 1960's-1970's, but is just too much to bear past that. There should be more hard sci-fi that shows how cool space, space travel, and the scientists that work in space are. Not just bleak political drama, tired tragedies showing why space is dangerous and a bad place to go, and plotlines that you could place on Earth and not really have anything changed about them. A new generation of scientists should be inspired to push further into space. Not warned to be cynical about it.
>>
>>135092052
Planetes and Space Brothers are pretty hard, though. Can't say they're too cynical about going to space.

>>135092093

Because people know that it's the domain of the rich. See Elysium. They're gonna prance around in their space dinner parties and leave the rest of us down here doing their labor as they watch us with their satellite panopticon.

>>
>>135092716
Rich people pave the way for the rest of us.

Every single technology that was brought down in price to the masses has been like that. TVs, phones, electricity, computers, cars, you name it man.

Even then, rich people are still human, and in space or on another planet all their money is worthless except for when they bought the rocket and suits protecting them and getting them there. There can still be drama and excitement in space fiction even when it's all wealthy. Hell, people read about the rich all the time, it really wouldn't be anything different in space. Planetes was basically all rich people prancing around and it was still amazing.

What I thought was cool about Planetes was that it was mostly rich people prancing around in space, with some not so rich people working menial labor labor positions in space. Like the main characters, who pick up garbage so that said garbage doesn't collide with a shuttle full of rich people.

Exactly.

I'm sure by the time said rich people are in space like that though it would be all automated collection and the menial jobs like that wouldn't even exist because it would cost too much. Realistically the people who are paid to run and maintain the automatons and machines would be making fat stacks regardless. 30-50 years from when planetes takes place it wouldn't be terribly unrealistic to think the average person would be flying towards mars by that time for the price of a plane ticket now. I'm just wondering when humans will see the level of space flight that's in planetes with the rate we're going at.

Yeah, private investors are the ones jumpstarting the interest in space. With the way NASA was being funded and the relative lack of excitement and extreme cost that the space shuttle and the ISS programs generated, I was thinking space was going to go nowhere.

Despite me saying that the rich are going to fund our way to space for the rest of us, it still doesn't seem like there's any tangible thing we could get moving on before setting up bases on the moon or mars.

I wonder what the price for platinum and other rare metals will be when asteroid mining comes into effect? That figure is quoted for current market prices and once asteroid miners basically make the monopoly from flooding the market with cheap precious metals it won't be 4 trillion anymore.

considering that cheaper everything benefits the overall economy there would probably still be a boom in everything else.
