    We are supposed to ask questions, so, I am gonna ask some. :D

    Are whiteholes possible? If yes, then, why haven't we yet discovered one, is it because we don't have enough technology or anything else? If not, then, why not?

    Are there more elementary forces? Can anything be smaller than the higgs boson?

    And last, but not the least, will we ever have a theory of everything? What will our reactions be like when we really have one?

    Hope that isn't too much. :) :D

    Competition is good, but will companies like Boeing/ULA, Blue Origin, or anyone else ever have a real competitive chance against beating SpaceX on contracts, considering that SpaceX has the flight/re-use proven cargo and astronaut ferrying with Dragon and Falcon 9, which may soon be replaced by Starship/HLS and Super Heavy?

    Is it possible that there is intelligent life on Mars on other planets, but we have too poor intelligence for this?
