The Hubble Telescope [infographic]

September 22, 2011 |  by  |  Tech

So in my energy technology and policy class, we are basically learning about the end of life as we know it. Oil is or is soon to be peaking, and right now alternative energy is not nearly strong enough to carry our current lifestyle. What happens when only 1% of the U.S. can afford air travel? Cars certainly won’t be an item in every household. So what’s the solution?

We either cut the population by a significant amount, or we find some secret habitable planet with resources. So maybe we should start investing in the space telescope? It’s that or take an IQ test to determine if you can keep living… So maybe some other technology will save us, but still it would be cool to travel into space and live on a new planet.

Well that’s it for my lecture, please enjoy today’s infographic. Hopefully you can understand what is happening…it took me a few glances to understand the entire telescope. [Via]

    I suspect if we could figure out how to transport any substantial amount of human life to another planet, we could probably figure out how to stay here and survive just fine. Here’s to doing both, excelsior!

    BTW, my pappy worked on that telescope for 10 years.
