Would you like to read about Voyager one and two as they approach Interstellar Space?

This fascinates me as I sit here and read it. It helps me concentrate on positive things that can enrich civilized humanity. Too many people around me focus on Politics. I realize Politics are part of reality but this is so much more enlightening.

It sounds like they're very close to breaking out into interstellar space.
I remember when they were launched and how excited I was.
They've traveled a long way since then.... billions of miles.

Maybe someday some space faring race will listen to our recording.

Can you imagine if it had feelings?... How alone and far from home it would feel?
Taking one last look at home before it fades in the distance; then pushing on into the unknown.

If we start to behave ourselves, and we dodge the bullet regarding impacts.... we have more time than we need to escape the confines of our system. Our Sun has billions of years left in it before it starts to go belly up.
So, all we need to do is, behave ourselves, and develop ways to deflect incoming bodies.
The former is the hard one. We're already coming up with ideas for the later.
In other words, our primitive nature is our only true hurdle.
We lick that, we solve the rest.
Intolerance is a big part of that primitive nature, and, at one time, it was necessary.
We still see it in nature. Animals, even mothers, kill those that are different or weak to keep the species strong. Animals are also wary of things that appear different to keep them safe.
We have all of that in us today.
Since we're intellectual creatures, it manifests in intellectual ways.
Other ideologies, theologies, race etc. are the differences we see and instinctively feel the need to eradicate.
Some for good reason... they're harmful, but we need to learn to distinguish between what is truly harmful and what isn't.
Things aren't harmful or dangerous just because they're different.

I pray your right.

We're getting an early start.
I mean, but for our own behavior, or a significant asteroid impact, there's plenty of time.

I hope that decent humans survive long after Earth cease to exist.
