For anything space related.
I remember in year 2015 when the satellite thingy arrived at pluto. That was awesome to see those pics.
Here is some cool video I found on youtube it comes with cool music too


>you have been chosen to be sent to the international space exploration program
>you will be sent to a faraway planet in a high tech space vessel to explore and report back home whatever you might find out
>it travels with 1000x light speed and has enough supplies for 100 years of life
>it also comes with a 4K camera, infrared, high speed internet connection and a surround system so you can play music to aliens you might find
>you are connected to Houston space station 24/7 for questions and you will be given an instruction into your new space vehicle
would you accept or decline, anon?

and more importantly, where would you travel to?

here my favorite song from that video


I'm fucking in dude.

>where would you travel to?

The 'Hand of God.'


One ticket to the centre of the Sun please



what I always wanted to see is the neptune from near. It looks so beautiful. And after that. I dunno
I would probably just keep flying into infinity and just recording all interesting things I come across

Are there any song about flat earth?


Yes. Here are a few I like:

>Earth is flat by Jaba and Friends


>Flat Earth by Brainstorm



Bitches be curved but the earth is flat
Bitches be curved but the earth is flat
Bitches be curved but the earth is flat
A ratatat-tat
A ratatat-tat


Is that rap? I don't like that degenerate art form


This view of nearly 10,000 galaxies is called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. It covers an area smaller than a 1 sq. mm piece of paper held at 1 meter away. This is equal to roughly one twenty-six-millionth of the total area of the sky.

You're looking back in time 13 billion years when the cosmos was 1 billion years old.

I often stare at this image. It evokes a lot of questions which will likely never be answered.

The image didn't post. Here it is.



I imagine somewhere in these galaxies might be one alien wiz staring at the younger galaxes and wondering if there are other space wizards in them


>satellite thingy
it's a probe and called New Horizons, anon


It just seems impossible. It's not possible to travel past the speed of light and I can't think how you could connect to the internet.

You might be able to go to a faraway planet within 80 years. I'm talking really far, but not really any measurement. I'm just going off a skewed memory probably. You'll be old and probably dead. You'll never find aliens on that planet anyways.

Also those cameras are actually meant to record you and put you on a comedy show. They'll record your entire life and laugh at your cringe.

Not only that, but there'd be nothing to see.
Just some distant specks of light - never growing closer or distant, to the human perception of space and time.

I think the feeling of leaving the solar system and entering interstellar space would really be something though. You'd probably go insane immediately.
Imagine being on one of the Voyagers right now….


I was recently out scouting for comet 141P/Machholz. I slowly started scanning the southern horizon even though I knew that it would be after sunset before I could bag my game. But still, it is, after all, the thrill of the hunt that makes nailing your target that much more rewarding.
I was using a pair of 8X42 binos. In hindsight, that may have been an optimistic endeavor - I never did manage to locate it.

A funny thing about the discovery of Neptune is that it was served on a silver platter for the astronomer who would eventually be credited with the discovery. French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier publicly presented his calculations for his prediction of the planet's position on the 1st of June 1846, and astronomers throughout France responded with a resounding silence.
Two months later, Le Verrier took a proactive approach and reached out to German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle, who discovered Neptune the same day he received Le Verriers letter - within 1" of where Le Verrier had predicted it would be, and within one hour of searching for it.

In theory, any amateur with access to a modest telescope could have been the one to discover it.


Space is endlessly fascinating, but it terrifies me in a way that nothing else does. My scariest nightmares have always been about planets crashing into each other, or the Earth falling into a star.

I hope aliens are nicer than humans if they're real.
