      I think that would be amazing for science! Scientists all over the world work with each other every day but there is also a lot of competition going on that can sometimes block this communication. However, it would take more than science to create a utopia and people would still have to work together in a lot of other things to achieve that.

      Your words remind me of the song “Imagine” by John Lennon.
      “Imagine there’s no countries
      It isn’t hard to do
      Nothing to kill or die for
      And no religion, too
      Imagine all the people
      Living life in peace
      You, you may say I’m a dreamer
      But I’m not the only one
      I hope someday you will join us
      And the world will be as one.”

      I don’t know about travelling to other worlds but it would be nice to make our current world into a utopian one and not have to worry about the sad state we have brought our earth to.

      People have pondered this question for millennia, but we’ve never really managed to do it! I was recently in Orkney looking at some of their ancient settlements from the stone age, and I think it’s interesting that a lot of settlements had no weapons and appeared to live together in harmony.
