    Is there a border we will never cross? Are there places we will never be able to reach, no matter what? It turns out there are. Far, far more than you might have thought…

    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age." -H.P. Lovecraft (on The Call of Cthulu)

    It's even more depressing when you realize humanity will destroy their home planet first before spending another billions of years trying to get out of their own solar system!

    If dark matter actually pushes stuff like that, then shouldn't it push the spacecraft towards the galaxies as well. And as the spacecraft will be much lighter, it should in theory not only match but outrun the speed of the galactic separation.

    Hello, I'm from the year 15236985 and instead of looking for other places outside home, we actually managed to be worthy of Eden. Women can pursue any job and gay people are great teachers at school here. I'm 14 years old and our teacher asked us to decode some videos from ancient technologies to see how miserable humanity was. And yes, America is great and Iran is one of the happiest, most democrat and most advanced societies in this world together with Bolivia and the Republic of New York.

    Well if we manage to create warp drives, things could be different. Also how do we know that there aren't amazing formations we've missed that we could've seen a long time ago?

    no we are not, when Jesus come for his church in the rapture we will fill the universe to be with him for ever and ever, he made all this for his CHURCH, the only way to get there is to obey ACTS 2:38 KJV,i know a lot do not believe this,that is your right, but why take a chance and not go, the HOPE I HAVE IS WORTH MORE THAN ALL THE WEALTH OF THE WORLD

    What if what we think is the observable universe is just a local group that has been too separated from a much larger universe and we don't know about it, just like future Milkdromeda's wont know about today's universe.

    While we might not be able to catch up to the speed of the expanding universe with conventional methods like the video implies, when the Mass Relays get built, speed won't be a problem.

    What if the big bang is itself the result of two galaxies collapsing into each other to make a new one?

    Not for Type 3 civilization; if they figure out wormhole technology, in which case they'll be type 4 civilization eventually.

    I wish this video was all true.But you honestly never really know.I enjoy watching stuff like this.I find it fascinating.But connecting the dots over the years with multiple known lies told to us. How can you watch this video and without a shadow of a doubt believe a single word it says.( although I want to ) I mean we never even went to the moon lol.That is a 100% proven lie these days. And with lots of other things I just find it hard to believe any of it

    3:25 "this is exactly how it looked like". Their sense of humor is just unmatchable, like the speed of the expansion of the universe :)
