too bad we can't live on jupiter.

It would be interesting nonetheless what life would be life today if Earth was the size of Jupiter.

We might not even colonized all parts of the planet like we have done here on Earth!

Yeah plane journeys would take days/weeks rather than hours.

Although it is technically impossible for a rock planet to be as large as Jupiter because it would collapse under it's own immense mass.

Huh, imagine if we actually lived on a planet the size of Canis Majoris or whatever it's name was. We'd barely even explore 1% of the planet.
Personally I was stunned at how big Canis Majoris was...

What if it was one giant diamond or something?

i was thinking more on a global scale, like maybe there wouldn't be any more wars over land or the entire country of japan wouldn't have to be all squished into one little island.

My ego makes me deny the feel of being small.

Though I am quite amazed how big the universe is. So who in the world doesn't believe that there are life forms present in planets other than Earth? Probably these life forms may be so advanced that they can conquer whole planets with the blink of an eye.

This spooks me and even makes me wanna go tour other planets in search of it, like Star Trek.

Bleh, if we don't find ways other than FTL to travel, we might have to prepare explorers to raise families aboard vessels so that their great great great great great great great etc. grandchildren can reach another world. We'd need 4 years to reach our closest star travelling at the speed of light. Star gate ftw!

Also space always makes me feel depressed. Space may be the future of mankind, but what we see in it all represents the past.

Well that seriously sucks because I wish to experience such life. I always found space very mysterious and interesting. Mass Effect and Star Trek by far have successfully hypnotized me by their imagination.

And I do know that it is impossible for mankind to reach that level of technology that even exits our galaxy! Reason being limited resources. That really sucks though as there might be technologies present in the universe that must enable people to travel much faster than the speed of light.
