How far can we travel through space, until the constellations are no longer recognizable?
If you were outside our Universe? Would you exist?How big is our universe and then if I was outside it could I even see our universes. if I was looking at our systems it would be a generate mapping system depending upon the species technology and or systems that engages propulsion. maps are extremely important in space , being able to see everything can be the difference between turning up safe and or hitting something an hoping the force field gets it.
Since the Universe, by definition, is everything there is, you cannot be outside of it. Since there is only one Universe, the term "universes" is illogical.How big is our universe and then if I was outside it could I even see our universes.
Right now recognition happens at validated at light speeds.still the nebula patterns are difficult to follow thru gas clouds and field disturbances like nova..gravitation..quasers..alike.so make specific question on remote measurement or mission realtime.?How far can we travel through space, until the constellations are no longer recognizable?
This seems to be working, but a bit slow arriving.Hey, I just found the following. Hope it helps:

The apparent location of stars within the field of view of an observer traveling through interstellar space would change with distance as the traveler got further and further from earth. The constellations, as we have defined them are, are made up of objects in vastly different positions in three dimensional space. Some are comparably close to us and others are extremely far away within a single constellation. The shape of a constellation would change depending on which one you were looking at.
Alpha Centauri is the closest star to us (it is actually a binary star) and is part of the constellation Centaurus. Traveling anything close to 4 light years tangentially to that constellation would alter the appearance of centaurus very quickly
There is a free program that will allow you to look at the stars from 'any' position in space and, therefore, see exactly how constellations change for yourself. See: Celestia: Home
it is almost impossible to go beyond as far as to constellations becoming unrecognized. because right now, centripetal force is still in domination in the universe. when centrifugal force gradually takes up domination (which is happening) after some billions of years, there will more empty space than matter or stars in the universe. but life is doubtful to exist at that time in order to experience it.How far can we travel through space, until the constellations are no longer recognizable?
