Aboard the New Horizons space craft was a little box, half an inch thick and just two inches in diameter that had the remains, well at least a little, of the discoverer of Pluto Clyde Tombaugh. These remains are the furthest human remains, 4 billion miles. Traveling at 34000 miles per hour.

There was a time when it was postulated that the maximum speed humans could travel was something like fifteen miles per hour because the air pressure in the mouth would kill him. Well we seem to have overcome that little obstacle by a bit.
Where this post is going is; What will happen over the next hundred years, how far will we travel and at what speed? Right now we believe the speed of light is the limit but 200 years ago the limit was determined by water resistance and so on, then we invented cars and airplanes and space craft. Where are we going? Of course we could just all land up dead, I hope not but that is up to God isn't it.
