  1. Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. Arthur C. Clarke I could not agree more. The universe is so vast and no object can be compared to another with so many variables needed to support life (as we know it) Take Europa for example. It is suggested that there is an ocean beneath 2km+ of ice. It will take billions of dollars, years of research, development and training in order to prove such a theory. Even if we discover single cell organisms then it will generate even more questions! I hope some of those questions will be answered within my lifetime but I have a feeling they won't. If someone on a planet in the Andromeda Galaxy is looking at our sun and measuring the transit of our planet (like the Kepler mission) they would be looking 2.5 million years into our past and obviously were not home! So I propose another question...... Is the speed of light too slow to look for life??
  2. These scopes seem to retail for around £600. Why do you think this one is so cheap?
  3. I am still new to astronomy but I was having a browse and saw this. This sounds like a great deal to me. What does everyone think? http://m.gumtree.com/p/other-miscellaneous-goods/telescope/1043956951
  4. Just back inside from taking my daughter to see "santas sleigh" absolutely brilliant. There is a very festive atmosphere in my house this evening! I do t think she will be sleeping much though!

  6. I used to look up at the stars whilst in Afghanistan. The sky is amazing in the summer. Every night is a clear night and the Milky Way is always visible. Shame about what's going on down on the ground to really concentrate on the skies.
  7. Excellent question!! I haven't got a clue! lol
  8. Just to throw another angle on this. How close would we have to be before the earth would be ripped to shreds by the massive gravitational pull?
  9. Great report. If want to read rambling, read my first light report when my new scope arrives Regards Ryan
