This week's images span quite a range. For one, we've got a distant galaxy drifting away from other heavenly bodies. But on the other end of that, we look at technology that can reconstruct a beard down to the hair. It also includes this amazing photo of an air force base, two retired space shuttles meeting face-to-face, and more. Click the gallery to see them all.

Sigh.... the opening picture in this article is rather plane.... ;)
One day in the future, Earth will make a galactic space ship and make a one way journey out into the cosmos at near light speed. The people inside will feel normal time. They will be of families. This space ship community will be their own society. In this near light speed travel, this community will travel to a Goldilocks planet and begin our new Earth planet society. This journey may take several hundred light years and lots of generations of humans to make the journey. Because they are traveling at near light speed, they will also travel into the future as well.
We just need to find that perfect Goldilocks planet and create the galactic time traveling space ship with a on board society that will continue and live in the ship over its journey for it will be a one way journey too.
Well there you go, our task and goals have been established. Lets go!
Aw, the future and our galactic time traveling space ship! Happy sigh!
robot, you are describing a generation ship. The concept has been bandied about for more than 100 years.
