I think there is a famous quote about science declare the impossable...;)

Like this one?

 

“When a distinguished but elderly scientist says something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he says something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.”

--- Arthur C. Clarke (1917-2008)

Technically, interstellar travel is possible. But will it ever be practical?

 

The ratio of cost to benefit has a big effect on the evaluation of practicality. If we keep doing what we're currently doing to this planet that ratio is going to shift.

Happened to be in Florida for the recent Unicorn meteor shower.  Saw no shower, but I did catch one pretty bright one while walking through the Pollo Tropical parking lot. 

 

Yes, I made a wish.  No, I won't tell you what it was.

Dude!  You were _that_ close, and said _nothing_?!  Damn but that sucks!

 

 

And yeah: the Unicorn was a complete bust here, too.  :(   I think we saw like  ....    four?  Six?

 

Not worth the way I felt all day at work the next day, I can tell you that.
