Oh how do I love my professors.
I get to start my Connecticut College Astronomy 105: Solar System Astronomy tomorrow! While I probably will be familiar with most of the information, I am really looking forward to the college exposure in the classroom.

If I am limited to a human being, then I would say Carl Sagan. But if I’m allowed a little freedom here, I would take ‘who’ and replace it with ‘what’. For me then, the choice is much easier. The wondrous encapsulating universe all around us inspires me the most. Billions and billions of stars, beautiful calamity, and vast distances. If we take evolution in its true nature, its not just a story about the first cells, its about where those cells came from. 13.7 billion years ago, the universe burst into existence, later came stars, which when gone supernova unleashed their heavier elements to enrich gas clouds with the elements of life. And out of that same dust clumped planets, gravitationally bound to their star. And from those enriched bodies of rock evolved life itself. Our story is the story of the cosmos. And to say that a mighty god placed us on the planet only a few thousand years ago absolutely belittles this most beautiful story of the cosmos and the human race. In the words of Carl Sagan, “If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.”
