In spite of knowing the inevitability of death,
man allows his pride to get the better of him.
He little realizes how insignificant he is.
The table below shows how long it would take for him to travel at
one-tenth the speed of light to the distant planets and stars.
We also know that this speed is unachievable by present man.
He may achieve it in future. Who Knows?
What is 60 or 70 or 80 years that man flays his arms and legs on this earth?
And our communist comrades say there is no GOD. Do they deserve pity?
Suppose you left the Earth at 108108100 Kilometer(s) per Hour
or 10% the speed of light.
