    Bullcrap.

    By definition there is only one universe. Star clusters are merely parts of the universe.

    Oh it will be great all the liberals (like myself) can do whatever we want, we can make sure it's super diverse, lay around and do nothing all day but have sex and get free abortions as needed we would be the smartest nation in the universe no business no greed no hunger no jealousy no money and no work it's going to be the bestest utopia ever

    No, when used in terms of science, "universe" has a specific and limited meaning. It is a sphere expanding outward from a single central point, commonly referred to as the point of the "big bang."

    A common term for infinity is "the cosmos."

    Thanks but trust me at 70, I have to check each morning to see if any of my body parts fell off during the night.

    So now, my grand adventures are more inside my head than in real life. Fortunately, I'm a devoted reader and the right authors can get me inside their books and I can travel the universe while my mortal shell sits in the living room with a cat on my lap.

    "An ambitious project that aims to send volunteers on a one-way trip to Mars unveiled plans for the first private unmanned mission to the Red Planet Tuesday, a robotic vanguard to human colonization that will launch in 2018.

    Mars One invited anyone over age 18 to apply to be an astronaut. About 165,000 people answered the first call for applications, which closed at the end of August. There will be four rounds of selection before the finalists are chosen.

    EDIT: FREAKIN insane
    If I wasn't such an old fart, I would be raring to go. This is something I have always dreamed about.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I know the feeling, I made 70 this last March myself.

    40 years ago I might have signed up for this, but now I'll just try to live long enough to see it get going.

    I'm not going to bet any money on this, but I do believe that it might happen.

    If reincarnation is possible, then I will go someday! It's been a long-held dream for me, too!

    Mine too, it was a life long dream to go gallivanting all over the universe ever since I read my first Buck Rogers Comic book. I think back then they cost you a nickel. I loved those Buck Roger serials every Saturday afternoon at the towns movie theater with Buster Crabbe.
