Unfathomable

I was spellbound watching a Nova episode celebrating 25 years of the Hubble Space Telescope.  I lost my ability to follow the depth and breadth of information when teeny, tiny narrow, oblong spots were pointed out by the narrator.  These are galaxies similar to our own.  This was followed by the mathematical method by which science gauges the number of stars that exist.

I don’t remember the astronomical count.  I just sat and stared at the majestic infinity beyond my mind’s comprehension.  A truly humbling experience.

I invite you to experience this unfathomable creation.  Watch the Nova program; go to http://www.thirteen.org/programs/nova/#invisible-universe-revealed; take a look at http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/; and check out Hubble25th.org for a brief NASA presentation.
