Tbh I think what makes me happiest about the discovery of these exo-planets is this hopeful idea of perhaps life having evolved intelligent enough to where perhaps they already have, or will eventually, be able to look into the universe and see us just as we see them. Who knows if we’ll be able to travel that grand amount of distance (40 light years is very far), but it’s comforting to think of life out there staring right back at us across the expanse as we stare back at them, excited, acknowledging each other’s existences. “Hi! I see you! I know you’re out there! I’m so glad to know we’re not alone!”

Space related starters

Send one for my muse’s reaction.

  • “Which star is that?”
  • “This trip would be better with more aliens.”
  • “Which is your favorite planet?”
  • “We can’t breath in space.”
  • “How many planets are in this system?”
  • “I love this space ship!”
  • “Is that an alien?”
  • “We should go deeper into space.”
  • “How many stars are in this galaxy?”
  • “Mission control, are you there?”
  • “How is light speed travel even possible?”
  • “Don’t forget to put a space suit on before going outside.”
  • “How far away is that planet?”
  • “Hand me the laser pistol!”

Just what is the story of Voltron? I've tried to look it up, but I'm still confused.

*crucks knuckles*

In the close future, three teens study to become space pilots. One of them searches for her family who got lost in space along with another guy. 

One day, she receives signals from outser space that something is coming. Suprise! It’s the guy who was with her family who disappeared!

So, these three, along with this guy and another teen who knew the guy, go search for other weird signals around the area and they find a robot lion that’s also a spaceship AND a weapon. 

Because it’s the most logical thing to do, they all go inside the lion, which activates itself, and travels light-speed to another planet, where a spaceship-castle lies with a princess inside. She tells them that there are four more lions and they all combine to form a big human-looking robot who fights against a bad alien race. This race also is responsible for the disappearance of one of the teen’s family. 

Because teenagers are the BEST to fight in an intergalactic war, they accept the mission and now they each have one colour-coordinated lion and they argue with each other a lot.

Voltron: Legendary Defender is a reboot of an 80′s anime show named Golion, which is why all the above sound so stupid.

It’s a good cartoon. You should watch it. 

I know those planets are forty light-years away, but listen. forty years is nothing. if they invent light-speed travel tomorrow, I’m subpeonaing my favorite people, some smart people, some handy people, and some beautiful people and taking us on this magic carpet ride across our galaxy.

Scientists slow the speed of light

A team of Scottish scientists has made light travel slower than the speed of light.

They sent photons - individual particles of light - through a special mask. It changed the photons’ shape - and slowed them to less than light speed.

The photons remained travelling at the lower speed even when they returned to free space.

The experiment is likely to alter how science looks at light.
