The cube is headed for the Leo 1 dwarf galaxy which is the faint cloud-like object to the left of Regulus. As it is only 820,000 light years away - I would personally be very scared :shock:

Great fun Greg :D

Too late for me I'm afraid, I've already been assimilated, after the company I work(ed) for has been taken over by a US based multinational! :wink:
