All that money could eradicate world hunger, homelessness etc, I'm in awe of space, but my god does it seem a massive waste of resources....
We could do all that AND build big telescopes in space if we wanted to.

We could build big telescopes for people to live in.

So we get to see even more galaxies ? Nice one...
Looking is the first step to learning. We need to look in order to then explore.

Otherwise its like signing a player without seeing them play, tbhBebe.

Mate… right there in that picture are millions and trillions and billions of stars…. Imagine 675 football pitches squared with 100 Eiffel towers laying on its side… that gives you an idea of just how majestic and big the universe really is

I know (well.i try to imagine) how big it could be ...

That image is a grain of sand held up at the night sky, I understand the concept, the sheer scale, etc, the very faint ones in the background, go to them with James Webb and do it again, it's infinitive...

Now what ?

It's a great screen saver, now what ?

Space, is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space.

Our next nearest star, Proxima Centauri is 4.2 light-years from Earth, a distance that would take about 6,300 years to travel using current technology so a trip would take many generations....

This is without factoring in propulsion, fuel, dead body clearance, arguments etc ...

And there's f*** all there anyway....

So again, cheers James Webb, now what ?

If it focuses in on somewhere that could have life, brilliant, We're still stuck....it's still so far away it's impossible as a species to get too ..

Unless we figure out bending time...

So we either make it better here or don't....

Here's the same image from Hubble...


Brilliant...

It's just like the new iPhone camera brags ...

Yup. If, and that is a f***ing HUGE if, faster than light is possible, you’re still gonna be flying in space for years.
If billionaires want to have d*** swinging competitions, then yeah let them build telescopes to look deep into space.
I think the first priority is to find a way to make living on Mars sustainable.
Cos sooner or later, we’re gonna need to.

Kind of feel sorry for the Hubble one tbh. The old team on the scrapheap.

I'm with Bunks here. We might learn more about space and other galaxies. And what? What do we do with that knowledge? Genuinely. I suppose it's interesting to an extent but so what? All seems a bit like Kanye West designing trainers just because he can. What's it for?

We don't know, yet. Something will probably come along though, it usually does.

And each one of those tiny specks is an entire galaxy

Light that's taken 13 billion years to travel, and we're the first human eyes to see it. Mind-blowing.
