    The Dreamlike Void

    The thrill of microgravity, the silence of space, the awe of seeing the whole world through a window, the separation from all humanity that is both comforting and discomforting... I would never pass up on such an incredible experience.

    I Really Like Starwolfcreatecartoon's Last Post.

    I love how he got -right to the point-. At the end of the day, we don't really want to go into space simply to look at -rocks- :-)

    Distance Is A Problem

    I'm sure there are interesting things out there that we'll eventually discover (or will discover us), but feel it's not going to happen in my lifetime. According to the press (and we know how unreliable they can be at times), Stephen Hawking said recently that any aliens...

    Keeps Me Going

    At times when life has been so torturous and I was tempted to commit suicide, I have kept myself going with the hope of doing things in the future that are truly mind-blowing like travelling in space (to new worlds!) and time travel.

    It's a bit disappointing

    that we won't live in the time of interstellar travel but I'm glad to have lived in a period where we know so much about the universe and just how vast and complex everything is from the macro and micro scale. I'm loving the new Cosmos series. It blows my mind some of the stuff...

    What's Out There?

    Looking up to the sky, seeing the stars, I'd wonder what's out there. Ever see the pictures taken by the Hubble telescope of the galaxies? What's it like out there? There are all these Exoplanets out there, I'd wonder what it would be like to actually see some of those in...

    I would love to feel the "zero gravity" effect.

    Nothing weighing you down. Must feel awesome. To feel free.

    Silence Of Space

    Sometimes I lie back on the lawn and watch the dark night sky sparkling with stars. Then I recall Eckhart's words about all the noise in our minds that makes us run hither and tither, behind illusions and dreams. I wish everyone of us gets to go to space, somehow- dunno how, so...

    I Want to See the World As a Sphere

     I need to see the world as 1 thing. The weightlessness would be cool but what I really need is to see the whole world in perspective. The entire world in my sight. My whole life I'm told the world is round but to me it looks flat. I know it is really round but I want to see...
