I Love Space Exploration

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 383 People

    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...

    EP should really get on with the times of

    multi-megabyte images. Would also be cool to hear if anyone with the app can see the picture, as in the past it seems people with the app have been able to see pics and I have trouble seeing pics off the app... Anyway!I don't mean in the "Wow, Start Trek's so groovy" way, but I...

    I Love Space Expolration

    When I was a child, I heard on the news and saw in "Life" and "Look" magizines about the money and dog which went into outer space. Albiet, only around the earth, but space, no less. I was HOOKED. From then on, I saved every magizine which had the original astronauts in them...

    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...

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

    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...

    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.
