Billions of years from now, the Earth is going to be swallowed by an expanding sun, including all the orbiting crafts around it. Our only legacy will be the probes sent to more distant planets, or out of the solar system altogether.
Billions of years from now! I’m not sure we’ll make it through the next 4 years
Darn, I'm hope I'm not still around for that.
If you become a ghost, and get eaten by an expanding sun, will it hurt? Whats the life span on being a ghost?
At some point in the distant future, our species has learned how to travel backwards in time and is not yet recognized as being the time travelers of tomorrow. We don’t know why they would come back but possibly for the purpose of clearing the way for future time travel. How far into the future was it that the species perfected this ability? Are they coming back to earth from another part of the universe or are they still earth-based that far into the future?
I guess these “Geniuses” have never read that satellite orbits decay over time...and all satellites in orbit around the Earth will come crashing down...eventually.
“Glork, look. we’re saved!”
“By Granthor’s hammer..you are right, Murmoo”
“Quick...toss that gold disk in the disgrontificator’s de-atomization chamber, so we can get home.”
They should launch a complete copy of the ObamaCare bill and all associated regulations along with a Pelosi translation script.
Who’d think in billions of years, there would be a silver lining. It and she will be long gone.
Leftists really put their hopes into socialized medicine and global warming to kill us all off. Hopefully we can disappoint them.
There is an episode of the original Star Trek, called All Our Yesterdays, in which people who lived on a mostly cloudy world did not figure out space travel until it was too late to save themselves from their sun, about to go supernova.
However, they *had* figured out time travel, so their solution to their predicament was to send their entire population back to earlier ages of their planet, after adapting them to live in those earlier times, so they would fit in. As a plot device this was necessary, that unless their minds were modified they would die; or else they could alter their past so that they did develop space travel.
Since significant space travel is so difficult, and the distances involved so great, this impresses me as a not unreasonable solution.
