    I think in the sense on how important it is for continuity of the human race. We live in such unique times that we are growing and developing as a human race at exponential rate with around 7 billion human inhabitants of planet Earth and counting. Of course, comes with this the...

    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...

    We Are Just A Grain Of Sand In This Vast Mysterious Universe!

    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.

    So many people saying

    that Philae was a waste of 2 billion dollars. If you're one of those people, you disgust me. Fine, next time, we'll tie YOU into an immobile position, send you on a 4 billion mile trip that was carefully planned to get you in the vicinity of a 3 mile long comet we previously...

    How Could You Not Love Space Exploration?

    I always found the the outer space fascinating. How can one not? I mean just the sheer size of it. And the stars we see at night might actually not even be there now cuz it took so long for the light to get here. Imagine that. And the possibility of advanced life forms somewhere...
