previous years, but whether those images will be tangible l doubt?
Its very interesting though isnt it??
The best minds of the day agree that the laws of physics will not allow speed greater than the speed of light because there is not enough energy in the Universe to get that final bit of acceleration. I am a plumber, with a high school education, I will not be arguing with the science just because I don't fully understand it.
You may misinterpret my conceptions of our species. I don't think that, in the grand scheme of things, we are any more important than pond slime. We are a single species on an unimpressive planet in a backwater spiral arm of a galaxy that holds 40 billion planets roughly the size of the earth. It is one of 2 trillion estimated galaxies in the observable universes. (you start adding up all of those exponents and you come up with a tolerable high number of possibilities)
To think that we are special or deserve some sort of divine status is absurd. We aren't even smart enough to get along with each other, much less other species. We are too damn dumb to save the only home we have. The only thing we would have to offer, outside of this planet, may be lessons willingness to kill each other and destroy our only home. If we disappear in either a blaze of violent glory or whither on the vine and die a slow death, we would not even be a footnote in the Encyclopedia Galactica.
In practical terms, this means if we don't get our act together we ain't gonna make it, and if not, we certainly don't deserve it. We know what needs doing, but we are too damn greedy to do it.....
