Every day it seems that more and more information is discovered about our world, Space, and the Universe. It has always intrigued me. I wish I could live long enough to learn a lot more!!
I saw this image from the Hubble telescope taken in 2003,on Facebook today and wanted to share it with you all. If you have even the slightest interest in our Universe take a look. It is "Out of This World"....literally! Absolutely fascinating and amazing!
As the article says, "This is the most important image EVER taken."
(citation below photo)
"On September 3rd, 2003 The Hubble Space Telescope began pointing its camera at a small area of the night sky. This area, about 1/10th of the apparent size of the full Moon, appeared to be complete blackness with no stars visible to the naked eye. Hubble kept its camera pointed there for more than 4 months, taking in all the light it could. This is what the Hubble Telescope saw."
Also if you cannot get your mind around how enormous space really is, here is another site that will give you a much better appreciation of how small our planet and our solar system really are!
Exploration, expansion, discovery....it is what brought us out of the caves. Without it we would still be Neanderthals (or some such) cooking over an open fire and wondering what a wheel could do!
No Value?? Exploration of space is the greatest value there could be. There is an unbelievable Universe out there. Much more "Out of This World" than we could ever imagine. No Value??? It is the future! Space is humanity's destiny!!!
