                        Essentially the universe is TOO big for humanity or any species at that, to explore. But at best, we can at least explore our Local Group and leave a footprint before we die off.

                                    Do not question your limit as long as you don't even know how to use 100% of your brain .
                                    We're using only 10-15% .
                                    You don't know how much more intelligent you can be if you use your brain to the limit (100% brain capacity) .

                                          in addition, we should consider speed.

                                                we won't make it far because a significant portion of humanity are wired for self-destruction due to predisposition toward fear/fight-or-flight/resistance to change. We are doomed to die as a civilization. Sorry folks.

We murder, kill, fight, destroy, and conquered for it. Before paper it was metal, and before metal is was we are quite literally are still very much Tarzan, running around shiting all over this small planet with plastic trash and a green house gases. Now i believe humans are getting better, but with a population in 1800 at 1 Billion and in 200 years going to 6 billion and in the next 100 going to 18 billion you can sure as hell bet that "AN" end will be near. It won't be some alien invasion or a big astriod. Interstellar laid it out best, we will run out of food, all animals and planets will die out, and at some point government will force people to lose some of their free will.

But I want to say this, Life is short, be nice to each other, don't use plastic, and consider adopting a child verse having several more, and don't buy diamonds or oil or gold. Sharing this world with each other is the next step in evolution,
