    I myself work in space industry.

    (Don't ask me technical question as I'm not an engineer.) I didn't really understand what space exploration means to human beings, but I think I'm able to see it a little. Scientists often say that the key is the curiosity but there should be more than that. Earth is one...

    If you read xkcd, you're very familiar with the

    adorable personification of Philae. The problem with anthropomorphism is that it creates sentimental attachment, much like one would to a beloved fictional character--since that is what is essentially being created. I drew this xkcd style Philae, before he shut down from a lack...

    This is one thing I wish would be available

    and affordable to the public in my lifetime because I would do it in a heartbeat. I would love to be able to look at the Earth as a whole and get the perspective that I am sure comes with doing that.
