    When has the impossible been made possible?

    Too many times to mention!
    Generally speaking "impossible" is one's perception or belief system.
    It was once impossible for man to fly, walk on the moon, run a mile in less than 4 minutes, perform organ transplants, sail around the world, sign & scan a document to be emailed anywhere in the world in a minute or do all your Christmas shopping without leaving home ...etc
    Whenever we accomplish something it loses it's marvel and becomes taken for granted. I'm sure anyone who lived in the Wild West as a cowboy would be blown away to see that one could fly from New York to Los Angeles in 5 hours! Microwaves heating food up in seconds!
    Just because something doesn't exist today doesn't mean it will never exist! Everything is "impossible" until someone proves it's not. wink

      So if one's belief is the root cause for the term impossible, can impossibility's  in science be scrutinised?

      Over time everything is scrutinized. We're always questioning theories or beliefs whenever we get (new) information to challenge them.
      So called "experts" once believed the world was flat!
      Inherently man has always sought to do the "impossible"!

    Over and over again throughout our time on the 3rd Rock from the Sun. When we are focused and work significantly well as a team we create and complete what others' think impossible...
