I think it's interesting to talk about the universe and its properties so easily (physical properties, etc.), but then when I think about the scale of just a single galaxy, it's mind = blown.eek.gif

Anyway, in general. Why send humans? Its so irrational and inefficient. Besides humans have been proven to go nuts in relatively short time in total silence and darkness. No way something remotely human would remain "sane enough" over the thousands of years needed for interstellar travel even if we make the technological breakthroughs to extend its life that far.
However, we are already capable of engineering far more survivable entities that can, in theory, travel the interstellar distances and wake up once within range of the destination. If worried about potential contacts with other lifeforms we can pack along few nukes programmed to blow as soon as the drone estimates its in danger of being captured.
Based on history of life on earth it is, in my opinion, naive to assume that something that has endured through the evolution in their environment is docile and well meaning towards all life. Far more likely it is something like humans. A vicious master of its savage domain, aggressive, expansionist and willing to wipe out any life-form it perceives as threatening even if its from the same species as itself. Being docile will note make you a dominant life-form in your environment.
As they say "nuke it from the orbit, its the only way to be sure" wink.gif

Great way to start our relationships with aliens thumb.gif
You might be hostile so I am just going to nuke you.

I guess I'm cynical, but I doubt if relations with alien civilizations will be at all peaceful. Unless they vastly outstrip us in technology and culture (or we vastly outstrip them) I'll hazard we'll be committing genocide or having it committed upon us.

So personally if we need to booby-trap extrasolar probes to keep our technology and/or location secret from unknown aliens I'm perfectly ok with nuking the crap out of any aliens that stumble across it.

Want proof?
If that MIT thing was possible. Then what happens if you are cloned, and your memories are put in the clone while you are still alive? You would still have your own thoughts while their thoughts would be separate. So even if it was possible. YOU would still be dead. Defeating the purpose.

Oh yeah I didn't think the memory bit would allow someone to live on. It was a proposal to re-diversify an un-populated planet after Earth goes boom. Cryogenics is still possible though.

I wonder if we will ever find the supposed worm holes. Supposedly there are 12 on earth, one being the Bermuda Triangle. Imagine if a worm hole allowed you to travel faster than the speed of light, and take you to other planets, solar systems, galaxies, and universes. So that's where all those missing planes went.
