Some things are launching. Your interest and innovation – driving technology forward to infinity and beyond!
Of course, at TinyMOS, we believe that infinity is just a mathematical concept.
Here’s a cool comic on that very topic of infinity and human expansion into space and other galaxies:

As science fiction often depicts the aspirations of the human spirit and gives us a glimpse into the technological future, perhaps it may not be too hard to imagine humans being an interstellar or even inter-galactic species. However, before we can get there, there are numerous technological challenges that needs to be solved.
As insurmountable as the technology challenges appears, at TinyMOS we believe that technology that takes us forward is inevitable and an eventuality. The true challenge is what drives technology – interest and inspiration.
If we want to become an interstellar species, exploring unknown worlds, we all need to start looking up. We all need to question – what is out there?
What is out there? Alot of things apparently. Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (HUDF) image includes some of the most distant galaxies to have been imaged by an optical telescope – NASA
If enough people have that interest and curiosity, eventually we will find the tools to find out that answer.
Even as we discuss interstellar travel as science fiction, humans are fast becoming a spacefaring species. The recent leaps and bounds in reusable rocket engines are the first steps, driven by technological mavericks such as Elon Musk (SpaceX) and Jeff Bezos (Blue Origin – relaunch-able rocket new milestone).

They have taken the lead and the first steps, how far we will go into space, now rests upon you.

On that note, here’s a video of TinyMOS founder – Grey Tan, speaking to the brilliant students in Raffles Institution about interest driving knowledge and pushing technological boundaries.
Guess what else is launching?
