ltdanman44: In the years since, we have lost our way with space exploration."... there is no shame in not knowing. The problem arises when irrational thought and attendant behavior fill the vacuum left by ignorance.""We spend the first year of a child's life teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of its life to shut up and sit down. There's something wrong there.""Curious that we spend more time congratulating people who have succeeded than encouraging people who have not.""We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.""The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you."I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up-many people feel small, because they're small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.""Kids are never the problem. They are born scientists. The problem is always the adults. They beat the curiosity out of kids. They outnumber kids. They vote. They wield resources. That's why my public focus is primarily adults.""For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you."[upload.wikimedia.org image 437x468]This man is a national treasure.
bbfreak: Really subby? The most important space photo in history is the Apollo 8 earthrise picture? What about Lunar Orbiter 1 which took the first earthrise picture two years before Apollo 8? Or Voyager 1's picture of earth from 6 billion km away. Or Deep Field and Ultra Deep Field?
