Any of you find outer space extremely weird and surreal?

    It is very weird and extremely impressive, and I have that same feeling about the deepest bottoms of the oceans. The things happening there and the beings living there feel just as weird but in a different way.

      I have been mesmerized by astronomy since I was a child. Wondering what’s out there, not having too many questions. It was simple as a kid. It’s just space. Earth is just one of the many planets in space. There’s trillions of civilized and developed planets out there. A bunch of aliens all over the universe, as tv shows and movies convinced me of it. Never doubted that.

      As I get older, I ask more questions, space becomes more complicated. Understanding the universe doesn’t get any easier, it just makes me more lost. Unlike almost any other subject on Earth. There are ceilings to subjects. You will eventually know more about the subject and have less questions.

      Like math, you start seeing highly complicated equations, but with practice it will eventually look as easy as 1+1 = 2.

      Learning about space, is infinite. Questions never stop. If you got an answer for one thing, now you a million more questions. There is virtually no ceiling on it. The smartest minds that Earth produced, like Hawking, Jansky, Newton, Hubble and Einstein, paved the way. But even their best work was just like 1% (just throwing that number out there) of what we have found out about the universe. And they were such geniuses that it’s hard for me to wrap around my head how a brain like theirs even existed. Their intelligence.

      Life can be formed around red and yellow dwarf stars, because they live the longest. They “live” over 10 billion years, therefore a planet in their goldilocks zone can be habitable and have time to develop life. Like our Sun is a yellow dwarf star. Then more questions arise…how many yellow dwarfs are there? Is there automatically at least one habitable planet around every yellow dwarf? Is there such a yellow dwarf with multiple habitable planets orbiting it? Or could there only be one habitable planet around a yellow dwarf? So many questions.

        There’s a study ongoing identifying all habitable planets within the observable universe.

        Based on the findings, the Kepler team estimated there to be "at least 50 billion planets in the Milky Way" of which "at least 500 million" are in the habitable zone.

        https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planetary_habitability

        And I’d be very surprised if there isn’t stars within that 500 million counted that don’t have multiple planets in their habitable zone.

          Like I get so used to living in this planet, and it’s very easy to completely forget there is an “outer space”.

          As far as our Solar system goes, it’s like we live in a rich ass gated community. Then you look at Mars and Venus and they are like uninhabitable ghettos of the Solar system.

          Then to make it more crappy, the whole thing about us being the sole planet that was in the zone away from the Sun enough for life to form. It’s surreal.

          And to also think that we just happened by chance.

          Then there’s things I think about like is the universe finite? Does it have an end? If so, what is beyond the end?
          Kev, I’m a highly observant Jew. I believe in the so called creation myth.

          The Hebrew Scriptures do not limit the creator from creating different life forms.

          I’m fascinated with the possibility of intelligent life beyond our galaxy.

          I also don’t believe you, us, me happened by chance.

          Again, I’m kinda religious and studied/brainwashed? By people who knew I’d believe anything.

          I believe.

            We lack the tool to know, what we don’t know.

              I am just glad we had something called curiosity. If we as humans only had this thought that another all powerful being created everything, we would be nowhere right now. We would be so primitive.

              Scientists are wrong every time, but they are wrong and they admit it and then they focus on finding the correct answer.

              Religions and faithful people know it all, they just read the Bible or Quran or something and then know it all. No curiosity. They stop there. They have the answers to everything about life, dinosaurs, magical people that roamed the Earth, space, how space started. The answer to all of that is: God did it.

              I am so relieved that curiosity, science, and learning is prevailing. If we were still majority faith-based or religious, we would not even have breakthrough research in things like stem cells and what they are capable of, cloning organs, and gene editing would not be a thing.

              Sadly, it was only in 2008-2009 that the ban on stem cell research was lifted. It took us that long. This is due to churches and religious people. They are literally a detriment to human life. The primitive-minded humans of this current Earth would have probably been perfectly fine with not trying find out real answers. They would love for everyone to join them in the “We don’t care about learning” club.

              Texas is another one. A state banning abortion. So damn stupid. It’s probably a state ran by old white men and old women. All probably faithful to god or they are religious. Great idea, ruin kids lives by placing them in foster homes or hoping they get adopted after the woman who wanted to abort it, was not allowed and can’t raise the child properly, and doesn’t want to. These are some of the things that churches and religions are pushing. I can’t imagine a world where churches and religions run everything. We would likely be a third world country.

                Dude after all that and you still think you are right.

                I literally just searched for it before the nice man provided the mission name and those Google and YouTube things bring it right up.

                And you say you can't or won't do it, because it's on someone else to link it to you? Shall we link you footage of landing on the moon aswell?

                What an embarassing man child you are.

                Thanks to several posters for lots of good posts and content.

                  you dont find it weird that every show on space is cgi? No actual footage

                    Religious ppl double down on their beliefs.
                    Searchers seek truth and just wanna know the truth.

                    Fools(sheeple) follow each other off the proverbial cliff.

                    if as I was taught, there is a creator, I want to know his/her essence.

                    Growing up, going to both church and synagogue was kinda very confusing.

                    I caused more than a few girls to abort my potential kids.

                    I got kids now, and I’m getting older, and I wonder if I made the right decisions @16-25.

                    living with regrets is a curse.

                    thanks for your post.

                      The universe is also expanding, which is also why scientists believe the universe is finite. And expanding universe means the universe had a starting point.

                      The popular Atheist answer to the question "So, who created the universe?" was "The universe is infinite and has always been here." They can no longer say this.

                      As for the end, Scientists have coined the term "The Big Snap" which is the reverse of "The Big Bang". Like an elastic band, the universe will expand till it reaches it's limit and snap back. But it's just a theory.
                      Good comment and it leads to the question what exists outside of the universe. In my opinion it is God.
