Should we be embarrassed by the fact that 1 billion years from now an alien race could find our Voyager or Pioneer probes and read the plaques on the sides to see we were so stupid as to once consider Pluto as a planet?

UNC_Samurai: kg2095: tgambitg: Most everything beyond the asteroid belt will survive the death of our sun, barring some odd event that causes out sun to go through the extremely unlikely event of a supernova. The trick is to make sure that we seed ourselves elsewhere to make sure that WE survive. And to reduce resource use here.

Why is it important that we survive?

Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes, and - all of this - all of this - was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars.


Shouldn't you be traveling backward in time to help with a great war?

FTA: From a creative standpoint, Rozema wanted to explore our preconceived perceptions of how the universe appears which are fed to us by existing imagery from sources such NASA or even sci-fi films. By creating a generated universe, Rozema was able to take his own 'camera' to other angles and places within the cosmos.

That's it! The only way to fight National Geographic is with moar National Geographic!

I saw one of the Voyagers get blasted by a Klingon in the 23rd century.

And the Starman guys nabbed another one so they could listen to Kurt Waldhiem DJ a Mozart sonata.

I don't think this artist watches enough SyFy....

Fark In The Duck: Is Voyager heading  toward the supernova?  HTH did that happen?


It got lost.  It was built by men and driven by men.
