Let’s go

There’s a new Earth.

It’s only 600 light years away.

Considering our galaxy is about 100,000 light years in diameter, that’s pretty darn close.

But, still large by our technological standards.

Galaxies are so large that stars can be consid...

100,000 light years

If this planet happens to have spawned or attracted intelligent life that use radio frequencies, like ours, they might start picking up some of our broadcast signals in about 550 years.

The good news is, if its intelligent life started using radio frequencies anywhere near 600 years ago, we might start to receive some of their signals soon.

If we decided to send a probe, with current technology we might be able to get there in about (if my calc’s are right) 10 million years.

Better start brushing up on how to tesseract.
