Perhaps they hv turned blue. Some of them live in a community whose core was a big tree that grows likes miles & miles up into the sky, from which their men hop onto big, powerful birds that can carry them anywhere, with one man matched to only one bird with whom he has been, well, like primordially paired with.

There may be life out there... or there may not. There may be black holes/dark matter/wormholes... or there may not. There may be lots of them, or they may be dangerous, or they may be useful... or they may not.

One thing is for sure; whatever we think or know today will almost be completely different to what we think or know 50 or 100 years from now. Perhaps only 10 years from now amazing new discoveries will be made or theories...theorised.
it makes me laugh when people who have evidentely not the slightest idea of what they're talking about arrogantly laugh at something they're talkin about expecially when they mock those who know better misrepresenting and possibly not understanding what those who knows better tells. But i'm pretty sure you totally grasp concepts like the redshift or gravitational lenses and the empirical evidences of cosmic theories you can obtain from those and on you make your assumptions based on the deep knowledge of phenomenons as such.

it's even better when this kind of mockery comes from religious people cause in that case is evidentely a projection of their forma mentis, where they don't understand concepts like doubt, confutation, theories, experiments and empirical evidences cause what they believe in as absurd as it obviously is can't be ever put under scrutiny or doubt and therefore they assume everyone behave in the same way with scientists feeding the thruth to ignorant masses accepting it passively as if they were some sort of priests.

I apologise, my post came across different to what I meant, I intended it to be humorous rather than mocking. These guys (Esp Professor Hawking) are far more intelligent than I will ever be. I'm sure that any predictions and discoveries are based on many intricate and complicated calculations, but it seems that every new discovery seems to disprove what was largely accepted as scientific fact; that what we assume is true today is different to what was assumed to be true 20 years ago, sometimes much shorter than that. It is not a great deal of time ago that some assumed there were canals on Mars, or that the stars were gods, and noone had heard of dark matter until recently.

It is good at east that the space programme in the US seems to be getting back up to speed, and only by further exploration and getting men and women up close to these spacial phenomenon that we will truly find out what is actually out there.

I have read that distances in space are so impossibly vast that it is almost certain humans will never come across another life form. Unless we or some alien race develops faster than light travel we will be forever confined to the few planets closest to us in our solar system.

Not so sure that meeting another life form wud be such a good thing. Cud lead to conflict & confrontation. Which cud be potentially devastating. To them, or to us, or both.

Please read my post no.10 above. There's a way to transport human beings across very long distances in space as suggested by Arthur C.Clarke, the famous SF writer. I think it is feasible.
