Will humans ever be able to get out of milky way?
How long will it take for humans to finally have the means to go cross the milky way and into other galaxies and planets

Ronald 7 say: It would take the power of thousands of Supernovas
That is something you don't get in Wallmart

Bulldog redux say: If by some miracle humans are ever able to travel at near the speed of light, we should be able to get to the nearest galaxy in Andromeda in about 2.5 million years. But if we wait a million years before coming back, the return trip should take a little under 2.5 million.
-
Megumi say: Never!
-
Elaine say: Considering it would take 1000's of years to reach Proxima Centauri I doubt it. While the thickness of the disk in our part of the galaxy is much thinner than the central bulge and would be the most logical direction it would take hundreds of thousands of years to enter intergalactic space. Energy , food, water, atmosphere, etc. needs have to be considered to make such a journey. We shall just have to be content to live in our own galaxy.

ANDY say: To get "out of" our galaxy, we need to travel at the speed of light and for 25,000 years. But then, we would find ourselves at the edge of the Milky Way where the closest dwarf galaxy orbiting ours would still be at tens of thousand light years away. Ponder over that and you may get your answer.

Paula say: No.
Well not in the lifetime of anyone who is currently alive.

Possible we will see people living on the Moon and Mars within 100 years.
But that is by no means certain.

To get to the nearest star to our sun is currently not possible.
It will require major advances in technology even to send a robot probe there.

Getting out of the Milky Way is just science fiction.
Unless one of two things happens
1) we make several amazing advances in technology.
2) we are visited by aliens who possess this technology.
Neither of those options seems very likely.
-
Alexander say: Not possible without time-space warp capability.
-
Jeffrey K say: A long time from now. We can't even get to nearby planets yet. Interstellar travel will require a fantastic leap in technology. Intergalactic travel is unimaginable right now.
-
Jim Moor say: We'll never know, it takes too long to get the message back!
-
YKhan say: I'm thinking that it's going to require another 10,000 years before we have that kind of technology. We should be regularly flying around within the Solar System within the next 1000 years.

It took us 10,000 years from walking around everywhere on our own two feet to horses, cars, ships, planes, and rockets. That's all pretty much limited to travelling within the Earth (and a bit on the Moon). The next big step is flying around the Solar System, so taking another 10,000 years to get good at flying around the Solar System should be good enough.

Snowwie888 say: As long we don't invent some kind of 'warp' drive, we well not soon leave our galaxy. Also, there are billions of stars and planets inside our galaxy. Why would you even leave it? There is nothing in the stellar void and it takes even forever to get to the nearest biggest galaxy. Even if we could travel with light speed it will still take us about 70,000 years to reach the edge, if traveling in the plane of the galaxy. If you go straight up or down relative to plane of the galaxy you need 2,000-3,000 years. I am not sure how 'thick' our galaxy is where the Sun resides. Oh, and going to Andromeda cost us 2,500,000 years with light speed. ^^sighh. I really hope some smart scientist really invent the 'warp' drive.

The Donald say: I'm still trying to get out of Uranus.
-
MysteryGuy say: Hahaha nope. Because even the speed of light isn't fast enough to escape past the sheer vastness of the milky way and galaxy.

If we see any other distinct object in the galaxy, chances are it doesn't exist anymore. We only see it cause light takes time to travel to us.
-
say: No.
-
Phil say: Theoretically yes, but by current science no way!
-
PhotonX say: Maybe a million years from now, if we don't wipe ourselves out in the next hundred.

Bill-M say: No. Not ever out of our own solar system.
-
D g say: its been 100 years since the horse and buggy era and we are now flying jet planes and going millions of miles in a few months in space ..

but the distance across the galaxy let alone from ONE TO ANOTHER is far far greater ..

at the speed of light it would take about 20000 years to cross the galaxy to the other side .. thats alot of food you have to carry ..

the distance to another galaxy is huge in comparison
