Raptors Republic Android & iOS App

Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    wasn't necessarily a cataclysm that destroyed Mars. It doesn't have a moon large enough to cause ongoing plate tectonics. Our moon tugs at the core of our planet causing the molten iron to create a magnetic field. The magnetic field protects us from the solar wind blowing our atmosphere right off the planet. Mars has a super weak magnetic field and loses about 1 tonne of atmosphere per year through ionization...once you lose atmospheric pressure liquid water has a hard time existing at surface level, it can only exist as a gas or solid. So as the atmosphere went so to did the water at least any of it that didn't freeze or go sub surface. There are probably large water stores on Mars from about 30 feet below the surface on down.

    There was actually a controversial experiment that went to Mars in the 70's(on Viking) that essentially confirmed life in a microbial form on Mars. I can't remember all the details now but NASA discredited the findings.

    We now know that Mars still has water, at one time had an atmosphere and surface water. It would have been possibly a lot like earth except who knows about if there was life or life similar to earth at that point. A cataclysm hit Mars, destroyed it's atmosphere, changing it forever.

    Agreed. It doesn't matter what percentage you give the on life being out there. In the infinite vastness of space it exists. I did read, can't remember whose, thesis on nothing in the milky way along intelligent life sources because they would have realized the makeup and death of stars and realized they have to spread, like we do and would therefore already be here. Brain explosion.

    Charon looks like the death star....
    But, on the topic of aliens; anyone is a fool to believe we are alone in this universe. We know so little of what's out there.

    They just found another solar system with a gas giant like Jupiter about the same distance from its' star as our Jupiter and its' star is relatively the same size and age as ours. Pretty cool stuff. It is just gonna suck when vger comes back

    So I studied up a little today. Pretty much everything they assumed about Pluto was wrong. There is warmth underneath the surface, probably radioactive in nature. Amazing.

    (Speculation) If there is water under the crust there could actually be life on Pluto. It seems like in the last 20 years science has discovered our solar system is a lot different than we initially observed with more primitive instruments. In the next 100 years I think we'll have a lot better idea on whether earth is unique in housing life or if it's a common occurrence in some basic form throughout our solar system in hospitable areas.

    Very cool story from Pluto. It's too bad those bastards at NASA had to go and demote Pluto a few years ago.

    It's pretty cool yup, but... where are the aliens hiding?
