I know nothing
I used to feel that Armstrong's landing on the moon was the highest human achievement in recorded history thus far. While that event has not lost any of its luster whatsoever I'm beginning to feel that a strong case can also be made for the Hubble telescope. I am indeed fortunate to have been alive to see both of them. I'm hoping for the hat trick and getting to see someone land on Mars. What I still have trouble getting my head around is that a little over a century ago just east of here we just figured out how to fly and we were beginning to question Newton. Now, we are landing one-ton science stations on Mars and flying hither and yon around Saturn taking absolutely astonishing pictures. Physics appears to be telling us that our visible universe may be nothing but a bit of foam on an ocean of dark matter. I think we have come a long way considering we are the detritus of a star that exploded billions of years ago. :)
There is the Hubble Space Telescope ... and then there is EVERY other piece of glass or mirror ever used to explore the stars. What the Hubble has done to our view of the universe is nothing short of spectacular.
