Hello nerds, can you tell me what exiting space projects are going right now, and what upcoming missions are in the pipes?

Thank you!

I know science doesn't care about our feelings, but tell me of any alternate theories other than everything freezing to death or being ripped to shreds that allows something, anything to keep on going and surviving.

Can we eventually develop the technology that allows us to "jump" to a new, younger or possibly truly unending universe with different laws of thermodynamics to carry ourselves on?

Hold me, /sagan/.

I like the hypothesis of what might come after universal heat death. If you know anything about Bose-Einstein condensates, you know that matter starts to act really weird when it gets close to 0Β°K. Groups of atoms and even molecules begin sharing quantum wave functions. Now imagine this on a universal scale. The whole universe and everything in it, whatever that might be, all having a single unified wave function. What might happen then? Given the untold eons of time available (assuming time will even still exist at that point) is is possible that the entire universe might experience some quantum event, say, tunnelling to "somewhere else"?

First one is Saturn's Hexagon on its north pole.
Essentially formed because of a turbulent storm near the vortex creating two weird waves that makes hexagons naturally.

Remember those quantum experiments where the outcome changes depending on whether its observed or not?
There are some ideas that follow up from that and state that universe itself exists in its current state because there is an active consciousness observing it, and that it can be altered by said observations.

If flat earthers have their way, we'd all be living in fucking star wars, and not even the 'good' kind, the Disney kind, constantly full of retcons, bullshit asspulls, general irrationality and incompetence, as well as hand-waving mary sues destroying everything cuz they magic paladins.

Fermi Paradox... why?

Another thread made me start thinking about this. The Fermi Paradox states (thanks, Wikipedia):

>The Sun is a young star. There are billions of stars in the galaxy that are billions of years older;
>Some of these stars probably have Earth-like planets which, if the Earth is typical, may develop intelligent life;
>Presumably, some of these civilizations will develop interstellar travel, a technology Earth is investigating even now, such as that used in the proposed 100 Year Starship;
>At any practical pace of interstellar travel, the galaxy can be completely colonized in a few tens of millions of years.

If that's the case, why haven't we been colonized already, or at least seen evidence of intelligent life somewhere in our galaxy?

My take: either A) Life takes a long time to develop, and somehow, improbably, we're the first planet to develop an intelligent civilization in our galaxy, or at least one of the first. We don't see anyone else because there isn't anyone else to see... yet, or we're all still too far apart.

Or b) Given the size and composition constraints of a planet able to foster and sustain life (as far as we know, "habitable zone," big enough to have an atmosphere, small enough to still be rocky, etc.) and continue long enough for said life to begin to explore the galaxy, the home planet simply runs out of resources before meaningful headway can be made. I think this is more of a slow-death kind of thing where maybe we get to do some exploration within the solar system and maybe a bit beyond for a while, but overpopulation, war, disease, famine, and whatever else causes us to realign our priorities from space exploration to merely sustaining life on our own planet. A civilization that had the foresight to know something like that was happening could theoretically, if they had the goal of galactic expansion from the start, avoid this situation, but the problem is that NO civilization has that kind of 10,000 year plan from the get-go, and they all sputter out right before they could have pulled it off. There's not a textbook on "how to succeed as a species" that gets handed out to a life form when it develops self-awareness, so following the natural progression, they all fail. the ability to extract resources necessary for galactic colonization from anywhere off-planet becomes viable too late in the game to save the species.

tl;dr - We're all gonna die, prolly. Thoughts?

Actual OP here.

I've posted in this thread a few times over the years (LOL?), and I pretty much agree with you. Life is probably kinda rare, and intelligent life is exceedingly rare. We really have no idea what other, exotic chemistry might sustain life. I like the idea that we "shouldn't assume we're special or unique," as an approach upheld by most astronomers, but we do keep finding star systems that are vastly different from our own. If our solar system is an oddball, then it stands to reason that life, as we know it, is also and oddball scenario. We might be the one-in-a-gazillion chance where life arises, and while it might be "common" in terms of the vastness of the universe, the odds of us contacting another intelligent species are probably pretty slim.

Like, what if the next closest intelligent species in the Andromeda Galaxy, or even worse, 2 galaxies away? We'll basically never know without some kind of inter-dimensional travel, and we don't know how to do that.

SO i got this new guy at work who is pretty obsessed with astrology, normally I wouldn't really care but he keeps projecting his assumptions on me because of my birthdate which I find pretty annoying I mean, he can believe whatever he want but leave me out of it

Now telling people they're wrong is generally going to create a shit atmosphere and i think quite a few of my coworkers would like astrology to be a real thing, so I want to set some traps. What are some tricky, good questions i can ask him that show he is just connecting dots because he likes to see them connected?

>TL;DR What are some questions to ask astrologists to show they're full of shit!?

Tell him you lied and your birthday is really a different date. It'll throw him off enough to at least leave you alone, or he'll start making silly hindsight-bias-assumptions about your "new" birthday. At which point, you can tell him you've been fucking with him the whole time and he's full of shit.

Yes. DOD had a UFO research department until 2015 or 2012 I think. Collaborations occurred between DOD and bigelow aerospace (skinwalker ranch). Nimitz recorded footage of ufo craft flying in the night. All files on DOD UFO research have been declassified in 2017 and NYTimes covered such in early 2017.

high redshift mirrors

lets say you were able to place a mirror in space out at such a distance that the mirror experience cosmological redshift from your perspective. If you were to shoot a laser beam of some wavelength at the mirror then the light reflecting off the mirror would be a longer wavelength than the originating laser because of the relativistic doppler effect.
what wavelength would the light be when it got back to you after bouncing off the mirror? would it be the original wavelength or would it be redshifted?
if its not the original wavelength then how was energy conserved?

What if anisotropic distribution of matter and the resulting uneven expansion of space creates distortions of our apparent view of the heavens and these distortions make it fundamentally impossible or nearly so to see anything clearly outside the local region.
In that case all of the thoroughly explained and well reasoned cosmologies handed down from the ivory tower of academia would turn out to have been as false and completely made up as Ptolemaic epicycle cosmology. I bet that sure would be embarrassing for all the CDM big bang fans who've been happily assuming that they understand the very origins of our universe down to the first instances to admit that the data they've been looking at is all distorted and that their cosmology is as made up and fake as ones proposed by historic scientific minds of the past.
Gravitational lensing is just an extreme case of the types of distortions that make the illusory nature of what the telescope sees increase with redshift and modern cosmology is based on so many absurd assumptions and oversimplifications that its impossible to take the stuff at face value and very easy to pick it apart.
I'm sticking with my bible until you nerds can develop some cosmology which actually dovetails with reality
