why does everyone automatically assume that shiny metal is aluminum.
why not stainless steel or titanium. isnt all metal shiny unless its corroded or painted?
aluminum isnt that high tek of a metal anymore. lets get a little more creative.
how can you tell something is shiny metal from that image anyways. looks like a bunch of pixels blurred together.
4.2 light years (as ive already done the math on page 1) is like 23 trillion miles.
even doing 100,000 miles an hour (which is still 3 times faster than anything we've ever made), that works out to 230,000,000 hours = 95,833,333
days or 27,071 years worth of travel time.
hope you packed your underwear and a breakfast bar. edit: especially since i rounded.
