    Back to your post, so if we become infertile in a hundred years time due to space travel necessary chemicals in our environment all your listed benefits are worth it? We would not need Barbree's new outer space home - he never thought the end game very well.
    In the same vein Branston has gone outter space - costing a fortune in bucks and pollution for a few minutes of thrills. All because he marvelled at man walking on the moon when he was a child. To me that walk was absolutely useless in the scheme of things. If Branston can do it so can everyone else completely wrecking the ozone layer probably. The world can survive without advanced science but advanced science cannot survive without the world.

    Do we think that there will be humanoid robots in the next 20 years that will take over human jobs?

    Remains of impact that created the Moon may lie deep within Earth

    Scientists have long agreed that the Moon formed when a protoplanet, called Theia, struck Earth in its infancy some 4.5 billion years ago. Now, a team of scientists has a provocative new proposal: Theia's remains can be found in two continent-size layers of rock buried deep in Earth's mantle. ...

    Hi Sprouty,
    No need to worry. My (admittedly amateur) view, is that all(?) galaxies have a Super Massive Black Hole (SMBH) at their centre. And just as it takes the Earth 365 days to circumnavigate the Sun, so our solar system is rotating around the black hole. Only it takes around 230 million years to get all the way round. Since the Earth was formed around 4.5 billion years ago it was made less than 20 complete trips around our SMBH. And we are still on the same circuit as when the dinosaurs were roaming the Earth.

    Since the SMBH is 28,000 light years away from us there is no danger of us falling in. Maybe a bigger concern would be that one of our nearest neighbour galaxies (Andromeda) appears to be on a collision course with our Milky Way – in about 4 billion years. Although by that time our Sun will be running low on fuel which is also bad news for Earth.

    Also, since nothing (with mass) can travel faster than the speed of light, even if we were on a collision course with the black hole, we still have at least 14 000 years to do something about it.

    What we should be more worried about are smaller black holes, which are more numerous and (probably) a lot closer. There's even a tv series about what might happen if one enters the solar system. Although the black hole itself doesn't make an appearance until the very end of the final episode!

    I think the chances of humans being made extinct from a black hole is extremely unlikely because I think it is far more likely humans will destroy the earth and go extinct long before that happens.

    And if humans are around that long then the chances are they have discovered a way to live elsewhere than Earth and will survive on other planets while the Earth is destroyed.

    Some of those pictures are breathtaking to behold.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.
