We can't even travel between the planets in our own solar system yet. After we can finally do that (will take a few more hundred years), we will have to travel to other solar systems within our own galaxy, THEN we will have to travel to other galaxy's. This is to say that a rock bigger than earth does not randomly end up in our solar system and accidentally bump into us (of coarse destroying everything). Hat's off to NASA! Not that you really ever could forget the USA, we will be immortally remembers for all that we have done to explore the vast world of space.

Right now we are limited by the speed of light. In order to travel between the VAST distances, we will need something that travel much faster. Hopefully, through this experiment, NASA will learn how to catch the solar wind coming off the Sun and catapult a probe millions of mph out of our galaxy. I sure hope I'm a live for that!
Duuuuuuude, don't forget to pass it to the left....... (j/k)



edit: doh, double post


edit2: I have always been interested in (and confused by) the whole jumping through folds theory of time/space travel. Very cool stuff.

Yeah, NASA definitely doesn't know anything about the sun.

They're only the largest, most thoroughly researched, backgrounded, and heavily government funded space corporation in existence. I think they might know a thing or 2 about thermodynamics.

We arnt limited by the speed of light. We have already broken it w/ reverse traveling lightwaves. We are limited by the energy it would take to make something go the speed of light other than light.

SentryOptic , seems like you discredit Russia's contribution after all it was the Russians who first sent out the satellite. You seem to think NASA is the only one who knows anything.

That probe is toast. I'l be impressed if it actually works.

All of that cash spent on space exploration and there are still millions below the poverty line. Fix your own problems on your own planet before you start looking for new stuff.

Then, yes, now, not even close. If you put what is left of the russian space program together with the entire european one, NASA is still bigger. Now, they are also a huge money pit, but until we privatize the space industry, it will continue to do so.

I thought that was not entirely correct? I remember a post about it a while ago and, while it gave the appearance of faster than light travel, it was just the way the numbers came out.

I agree, but having worked with the less fortunate, it is a society problem that is not solved with money. It is people that continue to strive for lifestyles beyond their means combined with a sense of self entitlement.

I don't understand how the thermal shield helps if it's going to go INSIDE the sun's atmosphere... I mean, it's going to get heat from behind it, too...
