Throughout The Galaxies
We travelled millions, billions, and even trillions of miles. We are as if lost in time by now. Entering the Milky Way galaxy was easy. But getting out of it… Here lies the truth. Our goal and aim were to escape the Milky Way galaxy and step up to the Andromeda galaxy once and for all. When this decision was made, it was the most challenging and most arduous decision of our entire lives. Everyone knew that there would be no way back. Never. This decision was the decision of our team as a vast community. For those who do not know our history, we can enlighten.
Everything began in the year 2256. It was the year of true space exploration. The mission made the accomplishment for the very first time. The first launch of a human space colony was ready to take off. And we did. We did well for the first 15 years. But on the 16th year, we almost died challenging air leak and oxygen problems. Many people died. But we survived as a space colony. We dealt with this horrific, deadly, and hostile environment. And we have been producing and fighting back with this monster named space since the beginning of our journey. For those who space looks friendly from the Earth… Yes, it looks pretty comfy and warm and even romantic from Earth. But once you find that you are billions of miles left from Earth, it is another story and thinking. Every day, you must be ready to face that maybe it is your last day. Someone has to monitor this enormous spaceship’s movement and obstacles at all times. Wrong decisions and actions can cost you everything. Asteroids, black holes, comets. These are not the scariest parts in space, as it turned out over centuries. But when you face time-lapses, frozen time, unfound rips and holes in time itself which no one can perceive and explain, it shakes all your mind and body at once. This is as if the fight is with darkness and nothing simultaneously.
I am glad that we survived as a space community that long. Suppose our following and monitoring are correct since the year 15656 crosses and passes our following way since we left Earth. We do not know what is happening on Earth anymore because we lost contact with Earth a long time ago, and it is the considerable distance makes it impossible to communicate with Earth. I hope the people on Earth are still alive and do well and good. But who knows.
13 400 years have passed since our lift-off. And it is still counting ahead. Finally, we are at the edge of the Milky Way galaxy. We made impossible things possible with so many generations and our constant technological improvements. We can travel 50 percent of the speed of light in a blink of an eye. And if we are lucky enough, we can reach speeds up to 85 percent of the speed of light. Thanks to our space, of course, and energy from the stars. We decided to face the challenge and cross the Andromeda galaxy quickly. But this was an extreme and tough decision because future generations will have to use more labour than ever before. Over the next 25000 years, from now on, their goal will be to reach the speeds of 99 or even 100 percent of the speed of light. That looks quite impossible to this day. But in 2256, it looked impossible to travel at the rate of even 50 percent, not speaking about 85 percent of the speed of light. We will leave the empty Milky Way galaxy with that speed, which has no life. So much for the past predictions of our Earth scientists that real life could exist in the Milky Way galaxy. But all we found and monitored are countless planet rocks with no conditions for life whatsoever.
Yes, the speed is brilliant and charming. Without speed, you are nothing in space. You cannot do anything because sooner or later, you realize that you are wasting your time and making no progress. Our population now reached 10 million and is still growing. Of course, as you may predict, we had to build a lot more room for extra people in space. But the most challenging decision was and still is to restrain the birth rate in our space community. The rule is simple. Want to give births make some room. Otherwise, die. Similar to centuries ago in China, but as you can see loads more strictly. Yes, forget the law or laws that were applied on Earth. There is no democracy and stupid liberal babbling in space. Otherwise, we would have been dead many times by now, and we would not even exist. I am only giving thanks to the real conservatives who made this progress possible and sacrificed their own lives with their blood. And we finally evolved in technology.
We had to improve our energy as a protective shield facing countless asteroids, space dust and even different radiation amounts in space protecting our enormous spaceship. With terrific speeds, even the smallest particle can cause you colossal trouble and wreckage, which can cost you years fixing it. Of course, it costs you human lives as well. Therefore, after spending the first 100 years in space, we decided to make an unbeatable energy shield. We named it ”Tuflux”. Tuflux was the first new-era learning prototype. That means we created an intelligent robotic device. However, this device had a lot of human sacrifices. Luckily, we had a lot of volunteers ending their own lives in that machine. Their brain was directly connected to the engine and constantly tested. Once connected, you die, and there is no way back because robots take you over completely and scatter your body to the atoms in a matter of milliseconds. The machine absorbs those atoms, and the learning process continues repeatedly.
The principle of the energy shield is simple. The protection protects the whole spaceship as the energy of extra layers. That means there is no direct contact or hit with anything up to 100 meters. Throughout our long history in space we monitored the closest object was 15 meters. But at that time, we had been achieved our largest speed which was 85 percent of the speed of light. Tuflux gets 99 percent of energy from space (stars, comets, asteroids and even planets), and we are giving only 1 percent of our made energy. That is marvellous.
You may think about how we live and can deal with such sort of speeds with no harm to ourselves. It is pretty simple too. Over centuries we improved our spaceship so much that you could not recognize it from the inside. It looks as if the smaller version of the Earth from the inside. Of course, without the sky, but with almost all the same features on Earth. It was very hard and tiring work but finally achieved and possible. The gravity, rotation, artificial rain, light, oxygen, and many other things can find sound and well on Earth. Some people adapted so well that they sometimes forget that it is a flying object at horrendous speeds every second. But that’s a good sign. We finally made a second home somewhere in space, and we are proud that we achieved it.
We do not need to be scared of the speed of light tearing us apart because we can firmly say today that our spaceship is a little travelling and rotating Earth in space, and we do not feel hazardous effects travelling at tremendous speeds. However, as you may guess, our time, lifetime and cycle differ greatly from Earth’s. Our rotation has 12 hours, so one day means only 12 hours, not 24 like it was always back on Earth.
Believe it or not, we have even cars, roads and cities inside our spaceship. We are currently developing plants, lakes, seas, mountains, snow, rain, and animals. But this development may take 55000 years looking ahead in the future. Who knows, maybe we will achieve it one day, like we have accomplished so many great things so far.
Speaking about the future, we may expect to find something in the Andromeda galaxy. But some sceptics say that it will be the same lifeless galaxy as we experience in the Milky Way galaxy right now. Well, I tend to agree with our brightest experts and scientists. But who knows. Our history was made and changed so much since 2256. However, the fact remains that when we enter the Andromeda galaxy, we will be in it for a long time because, as you know, this galaxy is much larger than the Milky Way galaxy. But it does not matter. The entire universe is our home now. And we can do whatever we want in outer space as a space community of humans as long as the universe exists.
Day by day passes, and on 16663, we are finally ready to launch our first tiny spaceships controlled by our robots remotely to the negative space. This is the project to search for valuable resources for our spaceship planet. After many failures in launching, we learned a lot from our mistakes. As our technology and knowledge advanced a lot more than 1007 years, we are finally ready to launch our tiny objects at the speed of 90 percent of the speed of light. Extra triple energy shields of those spaceships will safely bring all the resources and supplies. At least, we hope. The most dangerous obstacles remain the gravity of other planets stars, the stability of space and time, collisions with the comets and black holes, space and time rips. We hope that our new era robots will help deal with transportation and logistics with no problem. But we will see.
The year 18565. This is a sad year. 1902 years passed since 16663, and our new era project, launched almost two thousand years ago, failed with transporting supplies. We lost a lot of our resources and even people. We gathered and got some supplies, but in the end, it was not enough to cope with the increase of the speed of light and, most importantly, entering the Andromeda galaxy. Nonetheless, many people decided to take off instead of the robots and travelled in vain for those supplies. They never came back, and we do not know where they are up to this day. Our best guess is that they are long dead by now because you cannot last long in those hostile conditions. I am saying this to remind those trying to split themselves from this space colony’s leading group. People make teams and communities and sometimes overestimate their capabilities to start a new life and their own home. Over time, they die. Over centuries, we witnessed numerous attempts to pull away from the colony, and none of them is alive today. They are all dead. But it was their own stupid but brave decision. The sad thing is that they did not create any value for themselves or us. This is a huge lesson in the humanity’s space history.
To be continued…
