We came from the stars.  To the stars we will return....one way or another.

It is nice to know Mankind may have a choice in how that happens.

An excellent post.  It's been a long time since I have seen anyone quote that song!!!

 

And here I thought it was by Crosby, Stills and Nash.....should have read the credits.

One of my computers is linked to Seti. and I am involved in a program that detects asteroids.  have always been very interested in space and space programs. especially those that concentrate in looking for extra terrestial life in outerspace.

I know I am because as has been pointed out, we may need to find another home sooner, as opposed to later, once the Trump administration has scorched our earth with its anti-environmental policies.

By my unofficial count, there are only two currently posting here and one is on "break".

 

Many aren't "fans" of science.  Just saying....

 I'm pleased the US funds much scientific research.  Will this continue under a Conservative government?


Heck yes    theres' money in them thar stars!

 

Actually exciting news,  start building the ships!!!

 

 


The elites are hoarding more and more of the wealth so that they can escape into space once they get done raping the planet and Climate Change starts accelerating too fast !!  Wonder if they'll let Trump go with them ?    Naw !!!!!
