What It Looks
Like To Leave Our Solar System At The Speed Of Light (thanks Derek) I love
stuff like this so much I can watch without skipping ahead too much. It's so
cool being able to visualize the unimaginable, though the title is deceptive (it
actually ends a little past Jupiter). Anyway, pretty enlightening right off the
bat, as I certainly never pictured Mercury being as far from the Sun as it
actually is, as the vastness of space is even vaster than I'd pictured.
Light is just not that fast. It only seems fast to us. I think at some point we are going to discover a whole new natural paradigm. The speed of light limit is just an illusion we are currently stuck in by our current limitations.
I wonder who the Einstein will be that will break this thing wide open and how far off is it?
