Does it make you feel nothing at all? Stop for a moment and imagine: how does it all unfold? Will we eventually travel into the farthest reaches of the galaxy under the benign auspices of something like Star Trek's United Federation of Planets? Will the universe, instead, be colonized with brutal and uncompromising imperialism by something like the Alliance in the short-lived Firefly television series? Maybe you imagine that corporations will dominate space, consuming it as a natural resource like the RDA Corporation in the film Avatar. If you are anything like me, then you have absolutely no idea what is genuinely likely. I don't know anything about space, space travel, or the possibility of extra-terrestrial life. I'm not even a particularly competent science fiction geek. [More at site... thanks to Diana Cammack for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
