Oh yes, once we create FTL capable spacecraft (if it is possible or if our government has not already ) we will be opened up to a MUCH larger world full of life. Some less intelligent than us, some the same or more. For that day I personally can not wait.

You see where I'm going with this ...

There is no centre of the universe! According to the standard theories of cosmology, the universe started with a "Big Bang" about 14 thousand million years ago and has been expanding ever since. Yet there is no centre to the expansion; it is the same everywhere. The Big Bang should not be visualised as an ordinary explosion. The universe is not expanding out from a centre into space; rather, the whole universe is expanding and it is doing so equally at all places, as far as we can tell. *
