I love Star Trek, I love space, I love astronomy, I dream of travelling the universe(s), doesn't it just blow your mind just how mind boggingly BIG it is (space)...the light from the most distant galaxies thus far identified has travelled for BILLIONS of light years, so the light we see now, as it hits our eye, has travelled those billions of years from its point of origin (that distant universe) a time where our own galaxy did not exist. The most distant stars visible by the naked eye are thousands of light years away....meaning we are seeing them at this moment as they were thousands of years ago! And Time Travel? Read the 2 paragraphs before this one, it's has always been there.....Teletransportation? A scientist at cardiff university Teletransported an atom from one side of the room to another a few years ago. (A zillion atoms may take some time hehe)....Plasma energy? Just take a look at a nebula or supernova...pure plasma energy. There is so much more.....looking at Jupiter, Mars or Uranus (no pun intended :wink through my telescope is an indescribable feeling....up there with good food and sex...sometimes..even better. Just incredibly, incredibly awesome. Seeing the two comets Hale-Bopp and Halleys a few years ago, did any of you catch that? I just wish that Humankind could spend more time pondering the stars, planets, and the universe.....it puts life into a different perspective, I think it would solve a lot of the worlds ills. And Star Trek? The man Roddenbery was a genius. Although I wonder if and when the time comes for us to be able to travel the universe....if it will be in a spaceship....or something else? Anyone else have similiar feelings and interest in all things cosmic?
