Beauty

Jen, over at Living Dominica, posted on the beauty of our universe. Both the immensity and the sheer unbelievableness of our (sic) universe should be sobering reminders of our realistic place in the overall scheme of life. Thank you Jen for this.........

Recently, astronauts voted on the top photographs taken by Hubble, in its 16-year journey so far. Remarking in the article from the Daily Mail, reporter Michael Hanlon says the photos "illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful."

How lucky we are to have the technology to see what was once only conceivable in the realms of magic and mystery. True magic lies in our ability to look at the face of an unborn child on an ultrasound screen and, simulataneously, watch the images of the infinite universe unfold before us. That is true voodoo.
