"The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010. "
if they educated everyone to a certain extent (let's say high school graduate), then forced them to watch that video once a week, there would be no more fighting. just exploring. :P

i just saw a program on TV where they were discussing how stars will in a few trillion years will burn through all the hydrogen in the universe. and it will be dark and cold with only rocks floating around.

but if we humans are still around, we'll probably be creating stars (nuclear fusion baby!) to put them in the perfect place for planetary real estate. (i hope )
