When we speak for studying of the vast space, how far we can go into Space? – asks Science Alert?
Is there a limit to our ability for going beyond Earth?
As explained by this video channel Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell, our Planet is located in one corner of the Milky Way – a ordinary galaxy full of stars, planets and a huge black hole in its center. The nearest neighboring galaxy is Andromeda and with it another 50 other galaxies, the Milky Way belongs to a local group with a diameter of about 10 million light years.
Knowing where we are in space, let us suppose that in the future our technology for space exploration will develop significantly. So how far from Earth will be able to move away?
Well, is not much.
Actually, most likely to limited to that local group. What stops us is the space itself. That local group occupies only 0.00000000001% of the visible universe. This is one billionth of a percent in other words, the scope of mankind is doomed to be minimal. But Do not hurry to despair because we have not yet explored even the near cosmic bodies in our own solar system. So the solar system and our galaxy and the local cluster of galaxies surely hiding a lot more exciting secrets.
