    More than anything else, this recent New Horizons mission was a reminder just how vast space really is. Even if we were able to build a ship tomorrow that was capable of traveling at the speed of light, it would still be a four and a half hour flight just to get to Pluto.

    While the thought of life on other planets is certainly fun to contemplate, their's some serious next level understanding if astrophysics that we're going to have to achieve before the possibility could be of any practical value to us.

    This^

    And the furthest humans have been from earth at this point is still "only" 249,000 miles - and that was the crew of Apollo 13, who almost had another noteworthy accomplishment to their names! Space is hard and space is fast. If it isn't going to be some sort of light sail/ion propulsion technology on a "colony ship" where generations are fated to spending life traveling through the cosmos, someone needs to get to work on wormholes - stat!!!

    I would also suggest the discovery of "life" on other planets has a value beyond the practical. For me, it's more about the philosophical, sociological and psychological outcomes.

    And, we'd probably want to eep them at a distance. As Hawking (or "Hawkings" as Wigshithead says) has postulated,
    "We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach. If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the American Indians."

    I've never considered getting a symbol. But a piss jug, on the other hand, is something practical that you could use everyday. I have considered an authentic Reilly Martin piss jug.

    That flight would be just enough time to watch a movie and have a horrible airplane meal

    I have seriously got to get one before he kicks. I love Riley and he sadly sounds like he's on the way out.
