    Default DQ Space Program dedicated discussion thread

    Hey guys, the Fascinating Coffee Mug is selling really well, and we're making millions. Here's the currrent info on our sales.

    To be honest, I had assumed we wouldn't make that much money, but when I checked a few minutes ago, profits were in excess of 20 billion USD.

    I don't know how we did it. I didn't even know that Doctor Romanov had such a huge fanbase, or that that many of them are okay with drinking out of his moustache, but there you have it. I hadn't planned what I would do with my share, since I didn't think there would be a significant one.

    Here's what I propose: By next week, we'll have easily enough to fund our own space program. Among us, we probably have the skills to design our own rocket and moon base.

    Yes, my friends, I am suggesting that we travel to the moon.

    Think about it.

    Keep thinking.

    Okay stop thinking. Isn't that brilliant? It's not like we're going to spend our billions of dollars on anything better.

    At any rate, this thread is dedicated to the purpose of our ongoing space program discussions and/or communications, since I can't see any plausible reason that the majority of you wouldn't want to go along with this.

    I propose we call it the DQ space program.

    So where shall we begin in the construction of this rocket and station building, O Wise Ducky?

    Well we need to figure out where we can manufacture. I propose we launch from international water, though, to avoid some government freak-out. Turns out that very few countries like unidentified rockets launching in their airspace.

    Anyone good with rocket science?

    Will this be KSP powered?
    Rachel Constantine: I was especially interested in the section on Arroway's video unit. The one that recorded the static?
    Michael Kitz: Continue.
    Rachel Constantine: The fact that it recorded static isn't what interests me. What interests me is that it recorded approximately eighteen hours of it.

    Can't say I'm on board with this. Outer space is terrifying. I propose that instead of a space program we use the funds to devise a means of filling the interplanetary void with limitless atmosphere without it just coalescing around massive bodies, then use this technology to get rid of outer space.

    When we ascend to the heavens and conquer the moon itself you will be left in the dust on pitiful planet Earth!

    Jk, but really, we have the money - any help we can get on this would be appreciated, and think of what we could accomplish!
