A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post We could have a different evolution for both organic and inorganic life and based on the system's physical and chemical characteristics evolution may evolve differently on each world!
A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post Is there any way that we can make even planets with single celled life fun? I am invisioning a miniaturization technique when we are scaled down to single cell level and can see the microbes interact with each other and even glow in different colors. I would love to see interactions on the molecular and even atomic and subatomic level!
A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post We could spread microbes between planets or even from planet to moon if they share the same atmosphere!
I would like to simulate such a journey by piggybacking on a tektite in real time!
We could even simulate mass extinctions and perhaps even have planets that have very active suns where life never reaches beyond the microbe level before the planet is sterilized only to begin again!

A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post I have a question maybe you can help me with. A few years ago I read about a series of books (sci fi but realistic) that went from the birth of the universe through our species exploring the universe, but I was never able to find the name of the series or where I can find them. Do you know what series it could be? It was basically a cosmic history of everything from the Big Bang through us achieving interstellar travel. It covered billions of years!
A-L-E-X wrote:Source of the post I think it was ranked pretty high on the sci fi lists, and it's by an American author, but the series is fairly dated- from the 1930s I think?
