using nothing more than newton’s laws of gravitation, we astronomers can confidently predict that several billion years from now our home galaxy, the milky way, will merge with our neighbouring galaxy, andromeda. because the distances between the stars are so great compared to their sizes, few if any stars in either galaxy will actually collide.
any life on the worlds of that far off future should be safe, but they will be treated to an amazing billion-year-long lightshow.

I guess I kind of understand why people find childhood’s end pessimistic but tbh it rlly doesn’t seem that way to me? like idk the whole thing that happens at the end of the book seems way more optimistic than the inevitable route that humans seem to be taking…….like humans are killing the earth and killing each other and to me childhoods end is a way better alternative humans are goin out there to make a difference to have some kind of cosmic significance in some form that doesn’t seem pessimistic to me at all
Maybe I’m just tired and fucked up in the brain idk
After weeks of speculating, it’s official: Syfy will turn Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End into a six-hour miniseries. And it’s going to premiere next year. But don’t fret, the folks attached to it give us a lot of hope for this project.
