    It's actually the most important thing there is.

    We are a part of the cosmos, sentient and rational, trying to help the universe come to terms with itself. :cool:

    The universe doesn't give two bits about what we "think" as our "thought" is in constant motion.
    Now to have one-pointed attention/concentration is a thing of beauty, just ask Krisha, Buddha , The Christ, et al.

    If you kids don't behave, you're going to get a spanking when your father gets home.

    But now to return to serious space stuff . . . something I wonder about:

    Since all the specks of light we see in the night sky are reflections of far-off light, the most distant of which travel here from the edge of the universe, could we somehow collect and focus certain bits of that light to get a look at the edge of the universe? Or even better, the universe at its young state or beginning?

    The spectroscope on the Keck 1 space telescope in Hawaii recently found the traces of radiation from a new galaxy, z8-GND-5296.
    This galaxy is estimated to be 30 billion light years away from earth & began to beam it's radiation signature" to earth just 700 million years after the formation of our universe"

    This is an artists rendition of the galaxy article-0-18EE9CD300000578-973_634x575.jpg

    There are Hubble pics that are classified? Why? What possible info could not be shared?

    I recall the allies really did not want to have to land on Omaha because of the defenses but could not afford to leave such a big gap between the 2 wings
