Very fun to scroll through that, but it has some flaws. Mainly the beginning and end where the universe seems to just stop at a random point and say "that's it, I'm not gonna go any larger/smaller than this!!"

Well there's not much more beyond those points, at least that we know.

On the small end, it's bounded by Plank's Constant, the speed of light, and the constant of gravitation, which together imply a base length of 1.616x10^-35m.

On the large end, its effectively bounded for humans by the speed of light, which creates a 'visible universe' beyond which we cannot travel, and actually bounded by the expansion of the universe.

Because by the time they even find the (possibly unlikely) aliens, hundreds of thousands of millions of generations would have passed on earth.


I'm all for the endeavor though. I'd want to go on one of those trips.

Brilliant link, really interesting going through all that.

As for real space exploration, obviously we need to develop ftl.
