It kinda sucks though... To think that were probably not gonna be around to see space travel... I mean, Yeah, We MIGHT Go to the moon, But the moon is TERRIBLY Overrated compared to all that.

Man, This makes me feel really philosophical. I break for Aliens!

I'm currently converting this, then I'm gonna burn it and show it to EVERYONE I KNOW.

Dude, space travel will take a looooooooooooooooooooooooo*deep breath*oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong ass time. Because the galaxies are light years away from us. But we can't go the speed of light and current physics states that we will never be able to. There are some theories(not yet proven) that if true going the speed of light is possible. Sadly we probably won't see those galaxies.
Light travels ~ 300,000km/s if I remember correctly, and there are 31,556,926 seconds in a year. 300,000km/s * 31,556,926 s = 9,467,077,800,000 km that light travels in a year.. very humbling. Mine was bit off because of rounding, but here is what most say a light year is 9.4605284 10(15).

the video was too long, and boring, and didn't tell me anything new.

the part with the numa numa song wasn't even funny, and i had to close the video before i died of pure shittyness

but no, we'll never meet the aliens before our galaxy blows up and we have nowhere to run

I've thought as the world like that, just miles and miles and millions of other galaxies, it's so obvious there are other thing out there, much more than us, and if we all worked together and stopped bitching about nuclear weapons, and who bombed who we could invest into this and finally find what is out there, fuck this world, there so much more to this than the shit we have to put up with.

I get a bit annoyed on this subject because everybody will work together apart from the leaders of each country, I mean look at the gaming community, everyone from everywhere getting along but all the leaders are bitching and fighting, if everyone just worked together (hard i know everyone is so stuborn) then we'd actually acheive something worth writing down in history.


"but no, we'll never meet the aliens before our galaxy blows up and we have nowhere to run"

A billion years from now, the sun will explode apparetly, just look how far we've come in 200 years, imagine in a billion years, the sun ain't going be something we need to worry about anymore.


But yeah meeting other people and planets isn't all that safe either, I mean think about all the diseases, and all are diseases and theres mutating, and omg i can't even imagine universe would problably fuck its self in it's ass i dunno.

Ahh makes you wonder, good brain food. You guys should check out "IMAX Hubble's view of the Universe", it's a video of compiled images taken by the Hubble, really amazing. Like someones already said it makes you feel, so small.

It shouldn't at all. It should make you feel that there is something besides us that exist and all the countries need to unite.

Remember that "invention" thread and I said I'd have every monitor installed with a secret fist in the monitor that would shatter it to pieces when it flew out and knocked the kid in the face?

...Here's me wishing I patented it just a bit earlier before you bought your monitor.

Astronomy fails to be important until some fundamental laws of physics can be bent/broken, for instance the closest know cluster of stars is 4.39 light years away, which if we are somehow to figure out how to maintain going the speed of light, we'd need to build a craft that could support it's inhabitants(and the craft) for at least 4.39 years. This is why in our lifetime we will most likely never see a rover mission or men in other galaxies.

ah, this is where your wrong. if we were to be traveling relatively close to light speed yes it would be 4.39 years to everyone outside of the space craft. but inside it would seem like it took only a few weeks. Because of time dilation, the faster we move in space the slower we move in time. at 99.99999999% light speed the length of the ship would shrink to the size of a mere dot resulting in the density of the ship to be increased by a factor of 70,000, at which point time would be amost slowed to a stop. the amount of energy needed would be enourmous, and close to infinite. but it would make the trip a whole lot less noticable. and inside you wouldnt even notice a change in size.

but concidering it would take 6 months, accelerating at 2g's, to reach the speed of light, and another 6 months to slow down.. it wouldnt be all to fast

but i guess that can always be changed by increasing the acceleration rate. if they were to accelerate at 6g's (which would seem like wieghin 6 times what we would on earth) it would only take 2 months to speed up and 2 months to slow down. but some kind of life support would be needed to keep the passengers alive. but if you have the technology to send a ship through space at close to light speed you should be able to keep someone alive traveling at 6Gs for so long. and maybe it wouldnt even seem like 4months on the ship... more like just a few weeks.

I need doug around to clarify something for me..

my friend was sayin sumthin about the reason you cant travel at the speed of light is because you'd be infinitly massive... care to explain?

wrong, its actually the other way around.. he must of ment having an infinite mass, not being infinitly massive. because as you increase speed you actually shrink, which increases your mass.. at light speed you would have shrunk to an infinitly small size with an infinitly large mass

its pretty crazy stuff.. for example, like a car exactly 16 feet long stationary traveling at 120 MPH would shrink down to about 15.9999999999974 feet in length. nothing at all noticable, but if you were traveling at 580 million mph (which is about 87% light speed) your ship would shrink by almost half.

pretty deep stuff here.
so i hear Einstein once stated that time travels at the speed of light... does this complicate space travel if we ever reach the speed of light? heh
