When you look up at the stars and contemplate reality, does it trouble you or does it excite you? Why?


It's a little of both for me, but the troubling part isn't my insignificant existence, but the fact that I won't ever see any of the amazing things that are out there. Space is the coolest shit ever.

Space is very beautiful, and I love the fact that the light from all the stars that we see are all from vastly different times based on their distance from Earth. Even the Sun has an 8 minute lag.


That being said, while there is something fun about the retro-futuristic aesthetic space travel takes on, I don't feel the 'liberation' that others feel often times. Being in space seems entirely daunting, and at the end of the day is almost fetishistic in its focus of the 'inside' and constructed spaces. To be disbanded from the environment we evolved in and be sent off into the abyss, with no ability to survive after leaving the confines of some constructed shelter or suit, sounds incredibly claustrophobic.

I can totally understand that. I think the concept itself is more appealing than the day-to-day reality of space-travel. Though I'd still do it in a heartbeat.

I see the appeal; it just feels to sterile for me I think. I am pretty organic (I don't mean that in a 'sans pesticide' way.) I like wind and sun and flesh and dirt and plants and water. I like the sound of everything rustling.

i lied, the universe actually makes me feel wet.

I'm pretty sad that I'm gonna die in 50-60 years and miss all the shit that's going to happen. The sun's death, the collision of the Milkyway and Andromeda. I can't say I regret not being able to see the cold death of the universe, though.

But more often than not, when I think of space, my mind is boggled by its size. It is truly incomprehensible.

Why is there no poll option for all of the above?

That about sums it up for me. Sometimes when I'm stargazing I like to imagine just how far away each star in a constellation is and what the night sky might look like from a planet floating around each one.

The concept of infinity when applied to time is what really ****s my brain out of my head. Like, once you die...the rest of eternity will just go on. Its so ****ed up trying to comprehend things outside of your own existence.

Learning about space is coo' though. I'm particularly interested in the physics side of it all.

uncomfortable honestly.

Its a bit unsettling when you just stare at the moon, knowing it just floats there and its f.ucking enormous.

But hey, at least you have a 10% chance of absolutely guaranteeing failure.

Inspired. I like this stuff. It doesn't make me feel insignificant because I only view my 'significance' in relation to other humans. The only things scary about outer space are the numerous threats that can (and ultimately will) destroy the earth, but I'm not worried about that.

I just think everything about it is really really neat and I love learning about it and any advancements we have in regards to it

nothing exciting ever happens when i look at it. all the exciting things i know about space were from pictures and tv. so when i look at it, i treat it like any other scenery, which is to sort of ignore it. unless i'm camping or something and have nothing to do, in which case i'd look at it like what it is, a black canvas over the earth, and not what we know of it through other people.

When I think of space, I get pretty sad to be honest. One of my biggest desires/dreams has always to be in space. Whether it's walking in the moon, or just chilling in a space suit, or whatever, it's just like, space is proper next level. Almost literally. The sad part is that I will probably never get to experience that.

I think it would be so cool to be in space when you die. To have your last view turn be looking at the globe of rock and water that you came from, and then turn around and look into the vast emptiness that you will soon be a part of...could anything be more overpowering than that moment?

Space man. Space.

fantastic, whatever I do here is irrelevant. all the stuff I worry about (bills, mails, bla bla bla) won't matter the slightest because we're all insignificant and irrelevant.

thank you universe.
