Pros: it’s lovely to behold (from a distance), pristine, and offers hours and hours and centuries of shit to learn. It comes with a sense of wonder and, if you’re fortunate enough to visit, you may come back “enlightened”.
Cons: while it’s a cool place to visit, if you don’t die on the way, you’ll probably die during an extended stay. Also, since we’re only a type 0.3 civilization, the expense is still much too great for the general population.
I love space. Space is my shit. But, while it’s beautiful on its face, 99.999999999999% of space is filled with shit that will kill you 100% of the time and is uninhabitable by carbon-based life forms (except extremophiles).
Read: space is a lesson in what not to do when designing a habitat.
Unless your purpose is to run a zoo, space is a poor design for a habitat. Why would you create all this room, then create beings who can only live on a single spec of dust in that room? There’s no accounting for existential crises borne of looking too long into the sky. Once you see the face of Infinity, you CAN’T UNSEE THAT SHIT.
I feel like space was designed by the lowest bidder, and while it’s great that it’s currently free (for now), you definitely get what you pay for, which is a whole lot of nothing. Total 👎👎👎👎👎💯
