Brilliant Pebbles? Subsume all neg nuclear impacts?

 

Followed by some arguments that that makes nations more willing to use nukes... I doubt Brilliant Pebbles would be able to catch all of them.

Not if you can win solvency. The primary benefit of brilliant pebbles is that benefit of shooting down a gravity well rather than up it.

Here is just a sampling of the technical papers that would be solvency evidence for colonization cases. All of these are available through AIAA (you can either buy them through us, or access them through college libraries). This is just a selection from the first search page of our library using the term "colonization." The entire library has over200 papers on colonization alone:

I'm predicting my 1NC strat will (at least for a while) be Dollar Dump, on-c and framework.

DA is almost interchangeable, but not really.

Seriously, nuke the moon is a viable option with plenty of literature. Someone should run it.

"Space... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before."

 

Aff - build the starship Enterprise.

... NO options for kritical affs...?

 

If that's what you really think, you probably aren't a very good critical debater.

If you just wanna be kritikal for the sake of being kritikal you could reject the resolution and cite imperialism/manifest destiny and escaping suffering bad/Nietzsche.

 

Or you could have some fun and fiat that the USFG build something so pointless and expensive that it would collapse the economy entirely and then argue that capitalism will never die until it becomes so unsustainable that a new market system has to emerge, then go for some cap bad and dedev good.

The lit on the space elevator basically says that whoever builds the first one wins control of space because it lowers the cost of space development so drastically.
