WE HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THE JOURNEY of the Solar Impulse these past few weeks. And I'm sure you've heard of the first images of Pluto taken by the unmanned spacecraft New Horizons. These are exciting times. The first images, historic in many ways, left me yummy shivers last night. I mean look at it. Pluto has been this enigma for so long, and to see it so clearly, and the darkness of space beyond it, just renews the realization of how so much remains unknown to us. In celebration of this incredible event, here is a very cool thing to check out: an interactive page from the BBC called How Big is Space. I promise, it's a lot of fun.
Once again, hello Pluto. And finally a favorite quote:
"For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love" - Carl Sagan
