So as I was looking through all these pictures of space, it got me interested in learning more about it.
This is our universe. When I look at this and think of how small I am compared to our universe, it boggles my mind.
here, does that mean there are an infinite number galaxies, possibly one like ours that has planets that can sustain life? It's pretty fascinating to think about.
"the light from one galaxy could follow two different routes to the Earth, so the same galaxy would appear in two different parts of the sky.
I've always secretly wanted to be an astronaut, especially after watching The Right Stuff with my dad when I was younger. (Excellent movie, by the way, if you have 3+ hours to watch it. It's long!). I was so upset when I found out the NASA Shuttle Program is ending. And I know this does not mean NASA is shutting down, now NASA is working on exploring the rest of our solar system, maybe even going to Mars! But who knows how long that will take, so any dreams I had of going to space, or the moon, are not realistic. Unless of course I'm willing to shell out millions of dollars I don't have to take a commercial space flight. But I still won't be able to say I'm an astronaut. So for now, I'll just continue looking at these pictures in awe at how spectacular they are!
