Click and Read all about it.  Oh, and have a Wonderful Weekend !

  4. If you wanted a Milky Way bar and had to travel 870 trillion miles to get it, assuming you were traveling at the speed of light, then you should anticipate eating your candy bar in 2.9 million years. What this tells me is that human beings will have no major role to play in space exploration.

    1. We'll never get out of the solar system. All this looking for habitable planets nonsense is so absurd.
