    Read The Bobiverse series and hope you can become a Von Neumann probe too.

    I listened to them on Audible and absolutely loved them. Plus, the science is amazingly accurate (as far as we know). Relativity plays a key role in everything, and the physics is well explained and understandable.

    Outstanding sci-fi and possible future.

    It's not 6.5 Billion times the size of our Sun, It's density is about 6.5 Billion times the Mass of our Sun

    There is not mass in our sun to do this, our star will swell and fizzle out...

    Yeah, the caption is off, and I have seen that same stupid caption elsewhere, but the image is pretty cool.

    Also, since it is space related:

    Senate hearing on the creation of the space Force is going on right now.

    The Senate Armed Services Committee holds a hearing on "Proposal to Establish a United States Space Force." with the Gen. Dunford and a few others

    Having been a member of Air Force Space Command in a past life, the whole thing is stupid and a waste of time and money.

    Willpower mostly. The sun had a new year's resolution, but you know how those usually turn out.

    Also, it lacks the mass.

    I miss being in CA and watching them happen off my balcony. One of the very few things I miss about the LA area.
