booze and long haul flights = bad for your health. in short, even with pressurized cabins, your SP02 levels still tend to drop below 90%, which in turn increases your heart rate...add in alcohol, which also increases your heart rate, well, you get the idea. details revealed in the study below:

Hmm that could explain why some people just drop dead on a flight. I know lower air pressure make you drunk faster but didn't know about the heart rate bit.

James Webb Space Telescope looks at the Pandora Cluster of Galaxies - wow busy place - wonder if this the opposite of the big bang where they all come together?

This video tours Pandora’s Cluster (Abell 2744), a region where multiple clusters of galaxies are in the process of merging to form a megacluster. Astronomers estimate 50,000 sources of near-infrared light are represented in this image from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.

The concentration of mass in Pandora’s Cluster is so great that the fabric of spacetime is warped by gravity, creating an effect that makes the region of special interest to astronomers: a natural, super-magnifying glass called a “gravitational lens” that they can use to see very distant sources of light beyond the cluster that would otherwise be undetectable, even to Webb. These lensed sources, which are particularly prominent in the lower right area, appear red in the image, and often as elongated arcs distorted by the gravitational lens.

Not far from Toronto, not far enough!
dyson sphere's are an interesting theory, but literally impossible. there is no star system / solar system with the resources required to build one and if a civilization had the tech to harvest resources from other star systems, there would be no need to make a dyson sphere. :p
Dyson Sphere needed to power their tech😉?

Who's to say what's possible?

Me, I say anything is possible😘

Like one time in band camp!
