Would be awesome to see some serious space travel during my time... Just imagine being able to witness the first manned expedition to mars, and beyond... crazy stuff

A great restaurant. You've never been there?

Yep, we live in the future. But still no space travel.

If the earth is the size of a pea, the sun is the size of a 3' beach ball about 100 yards away
With this scale in mind; set that pea on the ground (it's the Earth, be gentle!) and start walking... about 1 mile along you should run into Pluto. Watch out that you don't step on Pluto, you'll need a micrometer to measure it since it's only about 0.02 inches in diameter.

Now keep walking... You have another 6,000+ miles before you run into the next star!!!

I'll keep a candle lit for ya.
Excuse me while a pull another beer.

It's true, Carl Sagan's Cosmos series is one of my favorite shows.

Yes, we're just specks. But this speck of life is all I've got, so I'm going to max it out.

The next star is so far away that we'd need to reproduce aboard the starship along the way, or go cryogenic. Which option sounds more fun to you?

Anyway, the size of space is not that big a deal after you invent an FTL drive.

I wish there were more hardcore science shows like this on TV. The Universe is OK, but it's kinda grade school. I want a miniseries on dark matter, or a whole season on quantum physics.
