We have yet to agree - in total unison - whether lifeforms on Earth are the only sentient lifeforms in the Universe. We have all but completely polluted our own beautiful planet Earth and people are excited about a piece of machinery that represents what? Space exploration? Human capability?
We have not yet fed the starving, housed the homeless, left animals to their own lives, cured diseases, learned to live in peace, we have yet to share without financial cost ... do I need to continue to make my point??
What is happening is a man made craft is floating out in what some human thinks is the far reaches of outer space - the reality is - we don't know where space or the Universe or Time ends - or starts - how the blazes do we know the man made craft hasn't just gone as far as the nearest corner??? We don't know????
Interesting - yes. Mind blowingly fabulous - no. Constructive towards our evolvement - no.
