For years I have smiled thinking if we were not the only creatures on earth to think of going into space, etc.
Think about this scenario:-

You are looking down into the grass for something and you are hit in the eye with a rocket being sent up by the ants....

I sounds daft but when you think a bit deeper, you realize that the ants could never create and send a rocket into space...

The size of a space bound rocket has to be beyond a certain size before it can escape the gravity on earth.This is down to the amount of fuel, etc.

Therefore, as humans are of the right size and dexterity we can go into space.

I rest my case. :lol:
