|Like ants moving crumbs of dirt, we are slowly changing our world. Patterns in the countryside are different in Europe, North America, and South America. In space, you can see political boundaries that show up only at night. This looking glass incites your mind to ponder the abstract. Through the window, you explore the world. In the mirror, you reflect upon your place within it and the reasons we explore. Is it fundamentally about finding new places to live and new resources to use? Or is it about expanding our knowledge of the universe? Either way, exploration seems fundamental to our survival as a species. After all, if the dinosaurs had explored space and colonized other planets, they would still be alive today. Yet there is one parameter [gravity] that has remained constant for billions of years, as if our planet was the most tender of incubators.|
