Some pretty cool stuff in our little neighborhood:

The Sun

Mercury

Venus

Earth

Mars

Ceres

Jupiter

Saturn

Uranus

Neptune

Pluto

Eris

Asteroid Belt


Kuiper Belt

Re: An Astronomy Lesson.

Question for you guys

Does anyone else find themselves walking outside at night only to look up at the stars and just feel so overwhelmed you almost fall over?

That's how I get, and I'm surprised nobody else gets that way and just ignores what's out there.

i do the same. i look up and wish there was some way i could see it all. i wish the entire world would stop with our petty differences and all look towards the sky, for that is the future. if the entire world was behind space travel, i could only imagine the things we could accomplish.

Re: An Astronomy Lesson.

Could you imagine right now that some planet with creatures just like us are trying to get off their planet because their sun is dying and they know what'll happen to them if they stay? Meanwhile we have morons over here who kill one another for piety ****.

Depending on how their government acts of course, they could've stalled and waited on it like how our world leaders just sit around complaining about natural resources which we could go get if we put the money into space travel and get resources from other planets, moons, etc.

This is true. Outer space is our future. As infinitely curious human beings, space is the next place to go and "conquer". Sure there is a lot about the Oceans we don't know, but it wont be long until every square inch of this planet has been seen by human eyes. Space presents a playground that will never run out of boundaries and things to discover. It's taken us this long to supposedly "master" one planet...we have our work cut out for us.

The stars aren't what the scientists tell you they are. They're really just pinpricks in the flannel sheet that seperates the Earth from Heaven. And the earth is only 10,000 years old.

yes! it freaks me out. space is very, very large and gives me the creeps when i look up at it. its so big... something could be looking at you or something.

when i was a kid, i used to have dreams of falling out into space forever.

but on a less nostalgic note, i read an article debating whether space travel is possible. combine that with hawking's plea that we need another planet ASAP, the human race is royally ****ed.

also, im sure that majority of the intelligent species out there experience difficulty just the same as we do. i think power, control, the desire to stand out is a result of intelligence. if there are peaceful, fully colonized planets out there, id assume they'd be insect like with a group/colony collective thinking (alpha centauri anyone?).. or how about aliens.. or the video game halo. the covenant had to unite their peoples under a single religious cause to have peace... the flood was a groupthink like species.

sometimes i wonder if intelligence actually is a good quality or our own demise.

It's not intelligence that may or may not be a good quality, it's free will.

I am a firm believer that Space Travel is possible. My dad and I talk about it every once in awhile, and he believes that suspending someone in time, like deep sleeps in a way, is one way of doing it.. and the other would be to just start a space shuttle and colonize inside of it until it reaches the other planet. God only knows what'll happen in the future though..

I'm sort of glad I don't have to worry about evacuating the earth or **** like that. But if someone asked me if I'd like to go explore space and try reaching another planet, even if I was probably doomed at the start...

I think I'd be stupid enough to say sure. Only to experience things no one else ever has, see things nobody else has ever seen before. It would be my kind of dumb thinking that other explores had, which got many things discovered on this planet.

Yeah, especially after a couple of drops.

The only time I look up when I am overwhelmed is when I'm on a creeper under the notch
