100 Year Starship Program - Leaving a Doomed Earth

The 100 year starship program has been completed within the last decade - around 2110. Earth's closest star system is finally within reach and none too soon. A comet the size of the state of Alaska has been spotted by deep space monitoring satellites and it is on a collision course with our planet.

What's the Big Rush?

Have you noticed the blurring pace of things and people around you lately? Everyone is in such a hurry to get to their next "thing", they barely have time to take a breath. People are in your way and seemingly oblivious to your need to get around them. What's the big rush?

Surviving Immortality

Imagine for a moment that you no longer had to worry about your life coming to an end. How dramatically might your consciousness shift, with that nagging dread of impending doom no longer hanging over your head; like the Sword of Damocles? But, like Damocles, you might also realize you would be trading one dilemma for another. Perhaps a much bigger problem than you might believe, until realization of the full implication of immortality truly seeps in.

Earth's First Star Ship Leaving Our Solar System

NASA’s Voyager 1 has reached the very fringes of our solar system, and is preparing to leave for good

When NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida in 1977, its primary mission was to explore Jupiter and Saturn, the largest planets in our solar system. On November 16, 1980, the spacecraft captured this photograph of Saturn from a distance of just 5.3-million kilometers.

Earth's Twin Kepler-22b Discovered "Next Door"!

Our world felt a little less special on Monday, as NASA's Kepler mission announced the discovery of an "Earth-sized" planet orbiting a "sun-like" star.

Yes, another one.

But this new orb merits special status -- because it's the first planet to be officially confirmed to exist in the so-called "habitable zone." It's an ideal size. It orbits just the right distance from its star, which is a lot like our own sun.
