No! 42 is not the meaning of life, it is "the answer to life, the universe, and everything". Get your facts straight!

. . . and at one point, a group of astronomers came up with a value for the Hubble Constant of 42 km/(s-Mpc). . . since they were "hitchhiker's guide" fans, you can imagine the reaction.

It's now thought that the correct value is closer to 75.

I remeber having read that just outside the galaxies a radiation is supposed that caused mass extinction on Earth when the solar system got there in the past.

Doesn't this mean, that intergalactic probes would be exposed to levels of radiation significantly beyond all managed up to now and even beyond all mankind might or will learn to manage within our galaxy?
