The Galaxy is Bent and Twisted...

Article from Space.com relates that the seemingly flat disk of the Galaxy we are in, is indeed bent and warped instead.

There is even some accompanying videos (like this one w/ some folks from a Polish Institute)

Though Jasper is not convinced that it is safe to go outside when faced with such an endless universe.

We are stardust, we are golden
We are billion-year-old carbon
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
Don't let other peoples limitations become your constraints!

Geologic time, historical eras, "normal" time, or government "We'll get to that soon" time?
I'll get a life when it's proven and substantiated to be better than what I'm currently experiencing.

While “we are stardust” is nice and romantic...

I sometimes prefer “we are shrapnel.”
