My ‘Humble’ Lessons from Astronomy on Humility

Who Are We that You Are Mindful of Us?

Most of the observable universe is made of hydrogen. Stars like our Sun are fueled through the fusion of this hydrogen into heavier elements like helium and carbon.

Seasons Come Seasons Go

Now that winter is here, you might catch yourself thinking about warmer summer months. Earth’s tilt relative to the Sun is the reason most of us enjoy seasons. As the Earth revolves around the Sun, Earth’s tilt causes the length of day and the directness of sunlight at your location to change. This of course [...]

Voyager Leaving the Solar System

In 1609, Galileo opened the world’s eyes to a whole new vista of the intricate beauty of the cosmos through the telescope.

I marvel that it takes a whole Universe (most or all of which [...]
