I just found this site as part of what seems to be something of an exodus from Reddit and wanted to say hello (and figure out how posting works). Also, in light of recent events I wanted to share one of my favorites quotes from Dan Simmons' "The Fall of Hyperion"
"Our new age of human expansion will terraform nothing. We will revel in hardships and welcome strangeness. We will not make the universe adapt ... we shall adapt... If humankind survives this test, our future lies in the dark distances between as well as on the sunlit worlds."
