“Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars - mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?” - Richard P. Feynman
We all have wondered about the origins of our universe. How did it all begin? What do we see when we look up at the night sky? What exactly is dark matter? Are there more universes out there? What about aliens?
