While we send probes to Mars and other stars faraway from where we are, searching space for another place where there might be intelligent beings just like those we see every day, chances are it might be worth all the time and expense to unlock the secrets how some planets began and ended and descended into nothingness.

The guess is there were other humanoids in the void of distant space who sought a place just like theirs a trillion light year away. Did they perish in their endeavor, never to achieve success?

Is intergalactic exploration going on? Will it continue when we're gone? When Earth's life has expired and all the wealth we've acquired is worth less than less, when all that's left are empty plains and flesh-stripped bones, working cell phones, melting ice cream cones and fossilized remains of Bush's brain and evidence of a once-great civilization, will explorers be wise enough to surmise what the message of our demise implies? Will they vow not to allow what happened then occur now or ever again?
