A Space Odyssey

[music: Into Deep mixed by Paul Oakenfold]
[mood: enthralled]

My favorite science fiction stories all take place in the future. A few in particular include Star Trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey. They explore what life could be like in the future. While many stories take place in an apocolyptic future, I'm more into the ones where imagination is the key ingredient, and the possibilities of what man can accomplish is explored.

I found an article that talks about two bodies of gas that may either be planets or stars. (For more information, read the BBC article.) It really makes me smile when articles like this show up. It's a reminder that despite all the crazy shit that's happening all over the world, scientists are making discoveries. Technology is advancing, and people are looking ahead.

Since this is a recent discovery (and more of these have been coming out lately) can anyone think that we're alone in this universe?
