And then....there are theories about a "parallel universe". Our solar system is like a single molecule in the total picture....which make us little more than a tiny sub-atomic particle. The vastness of the universe is beyond comprehension.

At 56,000 miles an hour, it would take over 81 thousand years to get to the closest Star. Our Solar System is as far as man himself can ever travel, even excluding Pluto, and that's beyond belief.

Yes. it took Voyager 1 35 years to leave our Solar System travelling at 35,000 mph.
81,000 years shows how mind boggling vast even our Milky Way Galaxy is.
