Think future?
« on: 29/06/2014 19:32:25 »
We all know that classical theory restricts the speed of light as a fixed constant.
We all know that say galaxy m51 is some 25 light year away so
are we to accept now that we shall be locked into say our solar system and travel to m51 impossible.
or
will we be able to visit m51 against all present day science/technology?
if the answer is yes... something is vastly wrong with present science
so
is the impossible, possible????

The truly impossible will never be possible, but things that now look impossible may well be achieved one day.  History is littered with examples of that.

We are not going to stars.  Even we are star dust in origin.

We can always look up and awe, appreciate and feel lonely.
