OK I will go well off topic in this off topic thread.
So you do not see flying to asteroids, Mars with an eventul landing on

in computing, maybe tissue engineering which has recently been in the
news, remote exploration of the solar system and beyond, understanding
the system in which we live and the physics of it?
