think about the universe is a waste of time (and space, lol). sure we could learn what all that pretty black nothingness is, but .... who cares. it's not going to change anything. by the time they send some 6 trillion dollar probe (at the tax payers expence) out there, we'll all be long dead. so WE will never know. people, 2-300 years from now might, but screw them. they're jerks
. they could spend all the money on earth, but it could just turn out that the anti-matter (or w/e) is cake frosting.... is it really worth the trouble to find out? i dont think so.
