I knew, and i hope this video will spark an interest in others, the universe is such an amazing mysterious place which we will never fully understand.

I hope i live to see the day when man embarks out a little further then the moon in the ever rising desire to explore new and unvisited realms.

enjoy.

Thank You...

People want to talk about depopulation and killing us off and running out of resource...

I'd like to know if there is a conspiracy behind keeping us on this dirt ball...

There is so much ahead of us, so much room, unlimited resources...

No problem, i am always excited to share what i feel is meaningful information.

i agree with you, i am getting a little tired of the depopulation threads and alike, its easy to forget how amazing our mind, body, life, earth, and universe are.

This video was posted is this thread, its stunning.



and this one of the moon is great, its doesn't show anything special like a moon base
but its beautiful footage of our closest neighbor.

Well whilst i admit to having started a thread on depopulation lol, i am far more interested in the night sky these days, so a S + F for this thread.


I haven't got a clue what i'm doing half the time when i take the kids out to watch the skies, but we see lots, chat lots, and it's fascinating for all.

Just need to save the pennies for a decent telescope, but for the moment, binos and our eyes are doing ok.

Thanks again.


CX.

Glad you liked it,

if you want a program for you computer that shows the night sky in YOUR location (makes understanding what your actually seeing in your back yard much easier) i suggest downloading Starlarium its a great program, and is really become popular fast amongst people interested in astronomy.

you can download it
here


edited to add: Starlarium is free btw, i should have mentioned that

You know it's tricky getting a response ...

I think this thread needed a... call to action of some sort.

i.e. post your best planetary images or something similar... sure most everyone agrees with your statement, but with no one liners allowed... response is kind of hard to simple statement.

I'll post link some of my fav images later on

Ok S&F Because its true, the vids are good but the message is better. Astronomy IS amazing. The sights that people can see, the images that can be produced are nothing short of spectacular. I think people get scared off because they feel a telescope is essential when really it is not, as CX mentioned Bino's are great yet you can just startgaze withou anything. Certain times of year there are meteor showers, the constellations change even watching the traverse of sattelites is fun. The possibilities are really endless.
It is a shame not many people take this seriously, maybe if the thread was title 'Crop circles predict astronomy is amazing' your luck might of been better.
But im with ya

yea it is amazing out there, Hubble as captured great images over the years ..

maybe a leap in space tourism will help awaken more people to the wonders of deep deep space ..

Don't be bummed man, Thanks for posting those vids. Astronomy is truly amazing. Its one of my 5 favorite things. I have several pics of Saturn taken from the Cassini mission, but you've probably seen them, and they are not hard to find online.

I enjoy getting into conversations about different astronomical facts with people I work with. You'd be surprised how many folks don't know what "dark side of the moon" means...or why we have meteor showers. Which, by the way, the Perseids are coming up in a a couple of weeks, and I plan to be on a mountain top or in the country in East TN for the show
Take care and please post up more stuff you come across!

Added this to my favorites list. And, hey, you're getting replies now! Better luck than me...I've made two posts so far of things I thought were interesting. Not only did I get no replies, I got zero VIEWS even!

Hey man , great OP, the vid really does put into perspective how amazing the universe can be. Just think we've probably not even scratched 1% of the amazing discovery's yet to be made.

OT I think the only thing keeping us on this dirtball is greed of money and a total lack of efficiency in the way we use resources

If we REALLY put our mind to it theres probably nothing we couldnt do

I agree, everyone says the reason we can't get further into to space is the price of it all.

but what is NASA's yearly budget? and didn't we just give away about a trillion dollars so big banks could buy failing banks?, I bet you could get a few guys to Mars for a trillion dollars.

I would have been a lot happier with the money going to space exploration, but that's just me

you got that right

something that often bothers me is why, as the human race, we need, say, 100 electronics companys, all spending R&D on developing new tv's which all pretty much do the same thing, same goes for toothpastes, electric shavers, printers etc etc

it's all a bit wastefull

who knows where we'd be if all that cash was channelled into the sciences proper

Since this post is getting some interest now, I'm uploading a few photos from Hubble that are neat.

enjoy

Great thread. I enjoyed the video. Here is a cool animation of the Mars rover mission set to NIN Sunspots.
