Interstellar Travel

Transmitter wrote this terribly early in the morning:


I unknowingly carried a tiny house ant home with me. Together we traveled approximately four and a half miles. For me the trip was short and inconsequential. For the ant the trip was 2,280,960 times the length of his body. Considering this distance from the ant’s perspective, I’ve concluded that our most logical course for interstellar travel is to hitch a ride on a much larger being.

    Liked the idea, it inspired an art piece and is a fun concept. but the I played with some numbers and it turns out for the ant to even get past pluto he would have had to ride on you for over a hundred thousand miles.
