This forum is specifically for the discussion of factual science and technology. When the topic moves to speculation, then it needs to also move to the parent forum, Science Fiction and Fantasy (SF/F).
If the topic of a discussion becomes political, even remotely so, then it immediately does no longer belong here. Failure to comply with these simple and reasonable guidelines will result in one of the following.
- the thread will be moved to the appropriate forum
- the thread will be closed to further posts.
- the thread will remain, but the posts that deviate from the topic will be relocated or deleted.
Thank you for understanding.
