This is the Swedish winner of ESA's XMM Essay Competition "What's new Mr. Galileo?":


I believe that the Universe never will end and that humans never will find all the stars and planets. But I do believe that we some day will travel in space outside The Milky Way and se many funny planets and other stuff, because who knows what's out there?

I wonder what will happen if the Earth was disappearing in a big black hole?

Would everybody die or would we just pop up somewhere else in the Universe? It's hard to say because nobody knows for sure. Sometimes when I look up to the stars I wonder how it would be to be up there? how it would feel? but I know that there are some people who know, who have been there.

I have always been fascinated by space. There is something that forces me to look, and I think that it is kind of scary. But the stars are very beautiful, I really want to visit them some time in future... but that is just a dream. I think that some day mankind will move away from this planet to some other and start a new life and I hope that we don't let go of so much trash and things like that. I like space, but I know that earth just is a little, little pea if you compare to the Universe. I have seen TV shows with people who live on spaceships, and I believe that it will happen sometime.
I think that it would be good if we knew even more about the space, and that we could send up more satellites and so on. It will be very interesting to see what will happen in the future!
