Amazing photos so far. Can't wait to see a large number of images pasted together to form a bigger picture. Simply stunning.

It's also incredible to think that there are more molecules in ten drops of sea water than there are stars in the entire universe. Or so I read...

Incredible. I can only imagine what that could mean.

How many are there and, given the currently accepted age of the universe, how many created per day/year does that equate to?

Just a few drops in the ocean, pal.

Thanks for channelling the ghost of Stephen Hawking for that answer, mate.

Just puts life in perspective doesn't it.

We're all going to die soon, and then our Sun will burn up, and eventually our galaxy will collide with Andromeda and be annihilated in an unimaginably colossal explosion of energy, and every single minute trace of human existence will be gone forever, as if it had never occurred.

So I had an extra pain au chocolat this morning.

we're not. It's a photograph. It's like saying a finger pointing to the moon is the moon itself.

It's all fascinating stuff but at some point there has to be a look at the cost/benefit ratio.... a space inquisition if you will.

Or space enquiry, if you're marlo.

Actually, they were talking about that on TV this morning. Due to all the nothing in between the tiny, tiny amounts of something, the two galaxies will likely pass right through each other with no discernible effect on earth.

Regretting that extra pain au chocolat now?

We're the first ones to see the photos then

ffs
Waste of 1 euro 20.

Edit: but won't that be after our sun has already burned up? Which will happen first?

We are the first humans to be able to detect it. The light itself is IR so we wouldn't be able to see it even if we peered through the WST ourselves.

The very last thing we need to do is look at the cost benefit. It will be impossible for us to know what the benefits might be yet, maybe not even for a hundred years. the pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge itself is nearly always worth the expense.

Yeah, pretty sure we'll get fried by our own sun before being smacked into by another galaxy

Not really. There’s other options. Just not ones wanted by certain wealthy interests with political power.
