I wasn't being completely sarcastic with my first post, I just think the idea is kind of funny. Also I agree with Obama that we should scale back NASA for the same basic reasons. Instead of spending billions and billions on colonizing the Moon and Mars we should focus on the realities of Earth. Don't get me wrong spaceships are cool and everything but the Cold War is mostly over and we beat Russia to the Moon, lets move on.
And have you seen a dry erase board filled up with all the Algebraic letters and numbers by one of these people. It's not pretty. I don't know about you but I have no desire to understand the Universe through numbers and "strings". Whether Universe has nine dimensions or four makes little difference to me. To me String Theory is just a highly educated scientific religion.
footnote: I have never played Civilization.

That is until they make the Super Large Hardon Collider.
