20 light-years = 1.17 * 10^14 miles.

At the speed of the Space Shuttle (17,500 mph), that's 700,000,000 hrs = 291666667 days = ~800,000 years.

Keep that distance in mind the next time some yokel claims he was visted by the saucermen. Hell, suppose the aliens have an engine that'll go ten times as fast as the shuttle. You have to be pretty high on yourself to think someone travelled 80,000 years to anally probe you.

Hell, them "aliens" are just jumping over from another dimension, no space travel involved. They are more then likely evolved humans that have discovered a way to time travel/jump dimensions. Their engines are much more advanced than the "antiques" we are using anyhoot.

So we could be the sunsabitches who show up in spaceships and screw up life for another blue planets inhabitants. And all these years we've been worried that it would be us getting that visit Laughing

Maybe they have a God that'll give us a flat tire on the way, stranding us at the restaurant at the end of the universe and saving the day for that happy little planet alien
