    The other day I read an article about the discovery of the three new earth-like planets. (http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/18/us/planet-discovery) Of course I had to share this information with everyone I knew, after all it's pretty cool. So...some friend and I were hanging out and drinking (end of semester celebratory stuff) and I bring it up in a "nerd moment." A "nerd moment" is when I get excited about something scientific that everyone else will not ever care about. My friend like me enough to pretend lol. So I go on this long spiel about how they found them and blah. At this point my friend asks me how are away that is. I tell her 6.5 trillion miles. She then says "that's cool we should go sometime, it will be a record breaking maned space mission." I immediate go into a rant about how difficult it would be to send a group of people there and get them there before they die. I also explain time dilation in there somewhere. I think she got it, but we were drunk so she might have just been saying yes because I was talking so fast. She then told me that it didn't make sense why we would look or place we couldn't get to. So, I just wanted to ask if it was worth it to be making these kinds of discoveries. I think it is even those we cannot yet go to these places.

    Sorry it took so long to respond. I was busy hanging out with friends in Andromeda and just got your message two million years from now.

    We might not be able to reach other planets, but the machines we create could explore other planets and proliferate throughout the universe finding suitable planets for human population and cloning us to deliver us to other worlds.

    LifeFlux saidCool Space Story Bro.


    Expecting a group of humans to agree on anything long enough to get us 6 trillion miles across space is a pipe dream.

    As is fixing up the planet we currently have reduced to a hovel.
