Should I dare suggest: "Boldly going where no man has gone before" ? Too obvious? Too surpased by the reality of the last 50 years? Too much of a Star Wars fan to laugh? Heh, all failed attempts at humour aside however, It is sobering to think, that that white light far above, has human beings on it. Human beings no different from us. They eat, sleep and breath... and of course....
