    I don't see why not, I mean we're entering an era where science is beginning to dominate.
    I'm sure that we can define the science communities as cultural because everything we do has some form of technology involved. We look back at ancient civilisations and say "Their culture was richly involved with deities" And future civilisations may travel back to Earth to scour the remains of our destroyed world and say "Their culture was richly involved in scientific discovery which unfortunately led to the destruction of their home"

    Actually, isn't there some kind of mathematical way of showing how far something away is by measuring is simultaneously from two different points?
    Yes, it's basic trigonometry.
