Hello, fellow Earthlings.
This blog is to share my love for the cosmos with you all, in a language and manner which is both interesting and easy to understand. I have always been fascinated with what the world outside our world has to offer; and the fascination has only grown in recent years.
You will find here images, videos and articles sourced from other astronomy and science-related websites and blogs. There will also be posts and fiction stories about space written by yours truly. Generally, the best of everything related to our universe.
I am no expert when it comes to astronomy, nor do I call myself an amateur astronomer. My aim here is to cultivate interest among more people about this subject and share the best links that I come across on the world wide web.
We have made tremendous progress as far as understanding and learning about our cosmos is concerned. Yet, we have only just started. For now, I leave you with this wonderful quote by Sir Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal of Great Britain.
“Telescopes are in some ways like time machines. They reveal galaxies so far away that their light has taken billions of years to reach us. We in astronomy have an advantage in studying the universe, in that we can actually see the past.
We owe our existence to stars, because they make the atoms of which we are formed. So if you are romantic you can say we are literally starstuff. If you’re less romantic you can say we’re the nuclear waste from the fuel that makes stars shine.
We’ve made so many advances in our understanding. A few centuries ago, the pioneer navigators learnt the size and shape of our Earth, and the layout of the continents. We are now just learning the dimensions and ingredients of our entire cosmos, and can at last make some sense of our cosmic habitat.”
