I don’t know about you, but I grew up wanting to join NASA as an astrophysicist.
The “universe” has always fascinated me… not only as a child, but also as a grown-up. As long as I can remember, I have been in awe of what’s ‘out there’. In school and college, Physics was my favourite subject. After all, Physics and Mathematics was the language in which the universe was written!
Over the years, I have tried to maintain my interest in this vast and intriguing body of work. The world wide web only made it easier to access real footage from official sites like those of NASA. What was once only available to geeks and nerds roaming the corridors of Princeton or JPL, was increasingly accessible to any one with a dial-up connection and Google on their browser.
Yet, over the years, you also lose touch with some of your interests, as you get caught up in the rat race. That’s why, I am grateful to have come across one of Atanu’s posts reminding me of the wonders Life has to offer… to any one who has a few minutes to spare :
… the Hubble Space Telescope pictures. Check them out and even download them as wallpaper, but don’t stop wondering how magical the universe is and how fortunate we are to be able to observe it.
Thanks, Atanu. For reminding me that the magic is still alive.
