Why You Should Never F*ck With Space

"In space, no one can hear you scream."

And it doesn't end there. So, where does the universe end? No one knows exactly – hell, we don't even know if it ends at all.

And what exists amongst this massive expanse? Well, black holes, for a start.

Black holes are regions in space-time that have so much mass making the gravity there so strong, nothing we know of can escape – not even light. That's right: there is literally NO ESCAPE.

So if you happen to be unlucky enough to get caught in its unforgiving force, you're future doesn't look too bright; Physicists are still debating whether you'd get burned to a crisp, or snapped like an over-extended elastic band in a process called spaghettification (no, seriously). Neither of which sound like much fun.

But honestly, what do you expect from something that is usually created by a big fuck-off explosion.

Most black holes are formed when a large star dies and goes supernova, which is the largest explosion that takes place in space – so definitely something that you'll want to avoid.

You'd think with all these fiery eruptions, space would have a nice warm temperature, but nope.

In the emptiness between planets, star systems and galaxies, the temperature in space is generally considered to be -454°F (-270°C). That's pretty fucking cold.

Oh yeah, and there's space radiation.

Solar storms often throw out huge amounts of energetic particles in the form of radiation that can penetrate through objects, even if they have extra shielding for protection.

How about this one? This one looks nice. No, wrong again. This one probably has glass rain!

Scientists believe that this planet could condense in its atmosphere, forming glass rain that would fall SIDEWAYS. It almost makes the 7000kph winds an afterthought.

Just imagine the moment when we find potential signatures of life. Imagine the moment when the world wakes up and the human race realizes that its long loneliness in time and space may be over — the possibility we're no longer alone in the universe… I think in the next 20 years we will find out we are not alone in the universe.
