    Wow.

    If I weren’t already a science geek, that video would make me one. It’s gorgeous, it’s fascinating and it’s more than a little bit scary.

    Wow. And again I say, wow.

      The pics of the sun in the last few years have been outstanding. And every time I see them I feel like the puny spec of matter that we humans really are. While it frightens me, it also encourages because even if we screw up our climate I am reminded that planet will continue and the universe damn sure will without our species. Not that I will let our species go extinct without a fight. More to say that we can only fuck up a tiny little part of nature.
