    Now to finish that wormhole🙂 what is needed is tons of negative energy which I don't have a clue what that really is but apparently some of the stuff has already been made so it is not outside possibility for man made wormholes but the amount needed to hold the throat open would probably be millions of tons. They said gravity would try to force the throat of the thing closed which is why you need this negative energy thing. Anyone have a clue as to just what negative energy is?

    Negative Energy:
    Energy that doesn't have anything positive to say!

    LOL!
    I have no idea, 'House man. Let me smoke on it!

    The ones I want to know more about are the closest ones, around one of the triple Alpha Centuari system. If there is a viable planet there, first, if we can get there, it is three stars in one so that is a huge bonus and it would be the first place to go if we ever get propulsion capable of say .5 c. That would be a trip time of about 8 years, a lot better than some kind of generation ship that you live in for two thousand years before you get to your destination.

    I enjoy country living under dark skies.
    You're very blessed to be away from the light pollution of urban centers.

    I can barely see anything at night from my own backyard because of the unshielded glow which is the city of Phoenix. I mean, I can see big stuff, like eclipses, but stuff like the moons of Jupiter is almost impossible to see unless I drag my telescope out. The only way I get to do any good stargazing is to get the heck outta town.

    It's mindblowing to know that Alpha Centauri might actually have an habitable planet.

    Perhaps that 'Lost in Space' 1960's show wasn't so implausible after all.

    If you drive over to Big Bend National Park you get to see the Milky Way so bright and starry it's frightening.

    I have actually done that--on a motorcycle. It really is spectacular.
