I couldn't agree more. It is the epitome of human arrogance to think that we are the only intelligent life in the vastness of the universe. :gaah:People who believe that in this vast universe we are the only "intelligent " life need to remove their heads from the sand.
And all those stars that we can see with the Naekid eye are just in our galaxy. Beyond those stars there are millions of other galaxies with billions of stars. I feel that the vastness of space is simply beyond our comprehension.when you look up at all those stars and realize any one of them could be somebody's sun, it makes you wonder.
I think a civilization that has figured out the mysteries of interstellar travel, would be so far advanced to us, that they will have gotten past the "warring" stage. I also believe if they were going to "eat" us, we would have been toast a long time ago.Joking aside, it's a 50/50 draw that they will be friendly... OR..that we will...
I think you're confusing the x-ray binary remnant remnant with the supermassive originator... or maybe the 'Binary Deathstar' that has been getting hyped for the past few years :dunno: then again many(most?) 'massive' stars are formed in pairs, but I don't know if that's a prerequisite for (super)novae :dunno:You get a cookie! You need a binary system for it to go BOOM!!!!!
