Any of you find outer space extremely weird and surreal?

    • I really don't give a **** about space. Too big. Once you get some perspective of just how tiny we are. It all becomes a bit unfathomable.

      I think it is wild we can go to the ocean bed and not be that surprised that there is a cyclops down there that could swallow a town.

      I don't really know how anything in my house works let alone the universe.

      I have some awareness of what happens in the human body in sickness and in health.

      I'm willing to sack off space. I buy New Scientist and Science Focus and I'm fascinated by things but when they start chopsing off about space I have no interest. I'd rather know the science behind the perfect cup of tea or whatever

        I was reading about this, for like the past 2 weeks. It’s crazy how many “science fiction” concepts have become reality.

          I guess they want plans in place in the event certain death is heading our way.

            I wholeheartedly support 'them' , I mean a cataclysmic asteroid strike is a low probability event during any given window but given enough time it becomes virtual inevitability... Like the next mega volcano or whatever - problem is you just don't know if it gonna come next year or in 10 million years. One of those kinda things worth having a few $$$ thrown at it just in case though I reckon.

              it is because they use movies to literally show us reality in our faces.

              • IMHO the deep ocean is way more weird and surreal than space and we know way less about it .

                    We do not know less about our oceans than we do about space. That is discussed earlier in the thread I believe, or some other thread.

                    There is a misconception that because we still need to physically explore like 80 something % of the ocean, that we know less about it than space.

                    Here is the issue: We have already explored the ocean floors with the help of marine engineering advancements.

                    We do not where Space ends, or if it does end, or what is way out there, and we never will get anywhere near the “edge”.

                    Lastly, we have only sent probes out to explore space, and that is only our own Solar system.

                    While we have explored 5-10% (roughly) of our oceans, and have actual footage of our ocean floors, I couldn’t even tell you the % of space we have explored. We do not even know where it ends. We can only talk about what we have observed.

                    • The % we have actually explored of space, physically (meaning probing/rovers), likely is:

                      0.00000(an endless amount of zero’s).1%

                      That is if we are strictly going by what we have physically explored, by any means.

                      While we are able to observe/see deep into space with giant telescopes, we can’t even see if there is an “edge”, a “bottom”, or a “boundary”.

                      We can peer into the bottom of the oceans. We know for a fact that there is an ocean floor. That is a fact that has visual evidence. It is not a theory. Humans have physically been to the ocean floors, by any means, meaning bots/unmanned/cameras etc.
