Effectively Alone in the Universe

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/25/opinion/alone-in-the-void.html?_r=2

I wish more people understood what this guy is talking about. There is a lot of focus on “progress” and such, many people forget that as far as the long run goes the human race isn’t helping itself with increased population and whatnot. Many people think science could “rescue” us, but the bottom line is Earth is the only planet we will ever have.

It makes me much more humbled when studying astronomy and looking at the stars after knowing just how far away and unreachable they are.
