Ok, this could easily fit in the lounge, but also fits in astronomy. Ok, now suppose you we given a call from NASA. They think that they have possibly found a way to traverse a black hole. Now, we are talking about a super massive black hole and it would require someone onboard the ship to try and traverse it and describe what is happening. Being that the ship would be so many light years away, navigation from earth is basically impossible, due to the time signals would take to transmit. They have also found a way to get you to the Black Hole in 10 years of travel. Your only job during the trip would be to master the different scenarios for successfully navigating through the black hole and thus helping scientists learn about the possibilities and ways of possibly navigating a black hole. Ok, now there is only about a 5-10% chance of your survival. But, there could be advances that happen during your 10 year voyage. Also, if you do successfully navigate to the other side, you will probbly not be able to return as there is no idea what lies on the other side. There is also probably no way to communicate with Earth after you traverse it as well. This is basically a one-way trip. Would you accept the challenge? I for one would do it in a heartbeat. Even though death was a probable, I would take my chances and go for it. The chance to experience this, advance our understanding of space, physics, and black holes would be my honor. Also, even if there is a 1% chance to make it through, the risks would be worth the reward. Just imagine what could be on the other side! A dream come true for me personally.
