What if we’re in the farthest reaches of space

What if, literally everywhere else that’s so far away we can’t even detect it, it’s kind of crowded and planets are right up next to each other all the time, clearly visible in every sky, and our entire area of the universe is considered the very edge of nothingness, and that’s why no one comes over here because we are by definition the middle of nowhere

Lobster in a bucket looks like a gigantic monster on a metallic planet, and the waterdrops look like stars.

This is transcendental.

Ok but: Muslims in space. How do they pray? You know? This really bothers me. This should be addressed in more science fiction.

Toward earth?

Malaysia (a Muslim country) actually came up with answers to these questions after they had a few astronauts launched into orbit.

Scientists shooting lasers at stuff [click for explanation]

This is how ground telescopes can get resolutions that rival space telescopes. By creating a fake star, they can measure how much the atmosphere is distorting light and correct for it by making tiny adjustments to the primary mirror. This is called adaptive optics.

what if when we finally meet the aliens and they ask us what the name of our galaxy is and after it’s been translated into their language they find out that we call it “the way the has the qualities of a liquid produced in the mammary glands of mammals” and they’re just like what. dude what. what the fuck

This is genius…
