Our Magnificent Universe

“Evolution is a fact; not a theory. It really happened.”
– Carl Sagan

I’m re-watching the old Cosmos series on YouTube, awestruck by the majesty and magnificence of the story of our universe. Fourteen billion years of an unravelling mystery that will still be ongoing fourteen billion earth years hence when, in all likelihood, our species would be gone; and perhaps [almost] like Sparta with no trace whatsoever that we were ever here. The sheer awesome-ness of it all.
