lets not bring science into it
Just goes to prove astronauts can be just as thick as the rest of us.
1. the universe was sterile until 3rd generation stars arrive (like our sun).
2. travel faster than light ..sc-fi only.
3. interstellar space travel , utterly impossible.
4 a planet will need like our billions of years worth of dead life like to support technological and advanced life.
We wont be among the first forms of intelligent life in the universe, actually we will be among the first forms of any life anywhere..sad fact but true ...and in a galaxy far far away ..long ago..nothing happened because there was nobody there.
Seems time in orbit now lowers IQ's.
