And still no sign of a "Heaven" or a God. Keep on probing boys you never know what you'll find. Seriously this kind of endeavour is too amazing for even a scientifically minded person. As an ancient mariner I remember when we ere considered precise in navigation if we were within three miles on an open ocean. Steering a ship was considered precise if you kept with the two degree margin of variation. These guys make our old navigational skills look absolutely childlike. Because of people such as those in N A S A , ships can pinpoint exactly where they are whilst the damned ships steer a precise course without a man at the wheel.

At moments like this I always think of human arrogance. We are pretty smug in our limited grasp of the universe we live in, none more than those in politics who have the least knowledge.

Fascinating, and more evidence of the interconnectedness of everything.

Amazing indeed. Today's technology breaks down or becomes obsolete in approximately 2 years.
