    .. for no other reason than because we were curious."

    Mind blowing. No matter how much you love or hate humanity, we are the beings that will conquer the abyss of space.

    We know about the same, which is a whole lot and absolutely nothing in sync with each other. The problem with the ocean is that if you go down too far you die, and it's hard to conduct research that way, but we're making it as technology progresses and machines work for us. I can't even begin to imagine the craziness and chaos of storms and molecules and properties of physics/spacetime we find there that advance humanity so much as it turns us into god.

    The author says that they are over 100 000 000 000 galaxies in the universe like this number is something big. But it's not a good idea to lose perspective so here are 2 simple examples: the human brain has that many neurons and a hard drive that is approx. 107 GB has that many slots.
