What things do you think/hope you get to see or experience in your lifetime?

The first ever picture taken of a black hole happened just recently and, not surprisingly, is taking social media by storm.

It made me think about what else we could potentially experience in our lifetime. What things do you think/hope you get to see or experience in your lifetime?

  • I hope to see alien contact for real. Not only that, I hope to be the person who makes it happen. 😄

    Also, I feel like the scientists who made the black hole picture possible aren't getting as much credit as they deserve, I feel like they should be at least mentioned whenever we talk about this event. I already expressed my gratitude to them in a question of my own but I'd like to do it again everywhere else this topic comes up. One of those scientists is Dr. Katie Bouman and from what I've read about her, it took her and her team 3 years or so to create the algorithm that helped them get the picture. I wish to be like them someday. 🙂

  • The more realistic one:
    - Find a partner in the future
    - Travelling. Visiting China.

    The unrealistic one:
    - An abortion (self-determined) ban in Norway or Scandinavia
    - World peace and elimination of the poverty

    • So you are against pro choice?

    • Show All
    • @shinka1y234, Ca. 90% are pro-choice and there's ca 15 000 abortions per year in Norway - a country with a population of 5 millions. Most happen before the 12th week though.

    • Wow. Thank you for the information. I am pro choice too but an abortion should be done in first trimester and not moments before a birth.

  • During my lifetime we will probably
    •Reach Mars and begin terraforming
    •Reach Proxima Centauri with probes at 40% of the speed of light
    •There is a 60% we will discover alien life in the next 80-70 years
    •Human engineering will begin and become a reality
    •Religion will start falling and will become the minority
    •After superior alien life is discovered, humans will realize how stupid we are fighting with each other while the real enemy is out there.

  • I’ve already seen so much from the moon landings live to the death of JFK ( and yes, I still remember where I was when I heard the news). The first transatlantic programme via Telstar and watching Convirde brighten up the skies. I’m lucky to have seen so much that anything from here on in is a bonus

    That black hole photo was a really great achievement in visual engineering (all the physics or computing involved are like five decades old). The public is hype about physics which is good and finally the anti GR cranks can give us a break now

  • Zombie apocalypse. Not realistic, but still.

    Seriously though, I hope to have a good SO and raise kids together. I want to run/play in a D&D campaign with them and other fun board games and post it on YouTube or something similar. I want to complete/write a few fiction books and publish them. I also want to experience the Elder Scrolls 6 and KOTOR 3 someday.

  • Were they able to confirm that it is a black hole?

    It almost looks like a planet in front of a sun.

    • Again the same science guy
      Sorry for looking like a stalker but I couldn't control myself, and I'm not a stalker
      So, SciFi flims were right, they were very close with their prediction
      And this looks the same too, now why it's blurry? Because it's just about 40 micro arcseconds in size if we view from earth
      Ok see it this way, if you zoom any image you take from your phone a lot it gets blurry right? Now that's the same
      This image is so much zoomed in that it is blurry.
      The object revolving around black holes looks similar to what interstellar showed us
      So yeah
