DailyDirt: Exploring Our Solar System

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Our solar system is a pretty big place, and we haven't really seen that much of it. But as we send out more and more probes and get fancier telescopes, we're learning about a ton of interesting phenomena that occur beyond our own planet. Here are just a few fascinating factoids and links on how we're exploring space without sending astronauts anywhere (yet). If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    The Universe Is not so mysterious

    I had a chance to read "Life In The Universe", it paints a very different picture of our solar systems and the universe.

    As life long astronomy enthusiast, looking up at the night sky, images, and imagining scale, represented such a source of inspiration and dreaming.

    This book has really brought down to anyone's understanding, that fact that life works according to nature. There is no escaping it. The need for resources, the need for relationship, the need for Knowledge...

    We must take care of this "pale blue dot..."

    Highly recommended.

    Gee, could it perhaps be because the sun was DESIGNED that way? Naaah, we've gotta make things more complicated than they really are.
