Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight up - Fred Hoyle

Some emerging ideas/thoughts about/reactions to space that you might find to be of interest...

Universe

The cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself - Carl Sagan

The oldest stars found in the Universe are nearly pristine, where almost 100% of what makes them up is the hydrogen and helium left over from the Big Bang. They come in at over 13 billion years old, with the oldest at 14.5 billion. And this is a big problem, because the Universe itself is only 13.8 billion years old.

Earth

In a new way to see the world, NASA showed in seven minutes some of the Earth’s most impressive landscapes - as seen from space.

Astronaut Edgar Mitchell talked about the joyous moment in which he sensed that all our molecules are interconnected.

Two young students in the UK managed to record a video of the Earth from the edge of space, using homemade equipment and on a shoestring budget, suggesting that if they can, anybody who really wants to can.

Saturn

On September 15, 2017, engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, awaited the final transmission from the Cassini spacecraft as it plunged into Saturn's atmosphere ending its 20-year voyage of discovery.

Venus

The next Venus transit will be in 2117. How likely is it that anyone reading this today will still exist then? Think about that: The next time the orbits of Earth and Venus align just so to create a transit, the world will be almost entirely populated by an entirely unborn generation.
