If there is life in another galaxy, they may have telescopes. They may even be watching our galaxy just as we watch theirs.

But you know what the greatest part is? There's a possibility that they gave our galaxy a ****** name. To them, we may be the 'Assclown Galaxy'.

Think about it.

It's actually sort of interesting, it is thought that intelligent life in the universe is at a minimum 200 light years away, meaning that IF they are observing us, they are probably watching something before the war of 1812.

The more you know.

That's the most interesting thing I've heard all day anon... Maybe they're waiting until people give a **** about alien life (because nobody thought about aliens at that time right?) to land, so that they can show off that they exist when we care.

Sadly, he moved to the other side of the world when I was 5. I don't hold it against him though, but it sure is awesome to see his work. I just wish I could be there to watch him do it.

Are you gonna visit him anytime?
#402 to #38 - aussiestig (06/01/2012) [-]
I have no means of income at the moment. I'm at college, and I have literally no money for anything. I would love so much even for a telescope but I can't even afford that either.

It won't be a long time before I can get some money to do either of these 2 things.

This one got an oval shape.

That's even more amazing!

User avatar #375 to #167 - gordanfreemann (06/01/2012) [-]
If you think about it, a butterfly shape could have been created via a spontaneous burst of particles. Now, the oval shape is so uniform is must've been created via the forces of nature: Strong, Weak, Electromagnetism, and Gravity! The bend of space due to the mass of the black hole at the center, causes the elliptical formation! :D So yes, it is truly more 'amazing'.

************* PHYSICS, BITCH.

Don't you mean a nebula from Mass Effect is an actual nebula from the universe?

I don't think the universe saw the nebula from ME and was like "Holy **** that's a cool nebula! I'LL PUT ON IN THE HEAVENS!"
User avatar #371 to #369 - iliketires (06/01/2012) [-]
