Live in Space & Win at Life | Jupiter@Nite BETA7

This evening on J@N we get inspired by talking about a tiny moon, and end up musing about what life would be like living in the luxury of outer-space.

 

Then we talk about new ways that game developers are motivating us to be better at life.

Saturn’s TINY moon:

It’s only 5 miles across.  Kind of like a private island.

WAIT A MINUTE.

Can we buy & live on a tiny space island-moon?!

Chris & Jeremy get their geek on regarding THE FUTURE of ultra-exclusive real estate, and how awesome it would be too look out from your private villa at the planet-rise of Saturn and its epic ringscape.

 

Giant space rock gets a close-up:

But tiny extra-terrestrial moons aren’t the end-all, be-all.  How about an even LARGER island, situated among the multitude of moon-sized chunks of rock floating throughout our solar system’s asteroid belts?  Perhaps not a private island, but how about a Asteroid Day Spa & Resort?  Could the universe’s next Sin City be stationed on a space rock?

 

Lunar dust stirred up by solar winds could destroy man-made structures:

But with all our off-planet excursions, will our equipment hold up to the POUNDING inflicted by the vicious sun and its heinous winds, conspiring with the dusts and debris of space-bound objects?  Signs point to ‘no’.  Sadface.

But enough of the future, what about life RIGHT NOW?  Can every-day tasks be made more exciting, more rewarding?  Can it be made… into a GAME?

 

These guys seem to think that it can…
