A site worth visiting week after week.

 
And if you need to back up and peruse a wider view of the comparative unimportance of our species – and the truly irrational crappola of True Believers – play and rewind this voyage through our nearest neighbor, Andromeda.

One thought on “Marvels of the Universe

  1. Fata Morgana says:

    “Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.” Douglas Adams,
    “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, 1978 (opening lines)
