Will humans be around? And if they are, will it affect them?
Let’s talk frankly about faster-than-light travel. Is it possible? Is it wrong to poo-poo ideas like this, considering that technologies like flight and teleportation were once seen as impossible? Do you think we can travel “through” space, or do you think that faster-than-light travel would be done “instantaneously”? Just some questions to think about. But, as an exercise, read Asimov’s Nemesis and consider the possibilities if we, as a species, could ever achieve FTL travel.
It’s like the developing economic world or galaxies.
If there’s one thing NPR knows how to do, it’s make us feel small… and learn to accept it.
