Took the family to see the Hubble Imax 3D movie and when I wrote it was worth every penny-I didn't just mean the admission price (for 5 people!) but
more for the Hubble program. The movie has changed my life (thinking) forever-about everything. I won't bore you with that, but trust me, you don't
come out the way you go in (mentally).
Prior to ATS I thought the Hubble idea really wasn't all that much (I was younger then) but thankfully the program was able to get up and running.
And, of course, the subsequent needed repairs. And the repairs is what the movie is about-move mostly focused on the last one.
This picture says a million things about us humans. Look at it. Take every thing in the picture that is man-made that got those two men in those
suits and to where they are! Over 10,000 people made this happen (movie claim). And look what those repairs allowed to happen (2 examples only):
(none of these shots were seen in the movie)
As far as Space Exploration, we must continue. I see it from two different angles-depending on the mood.:
1: If we humans are the only ones in this Universe-what a shame. However, that demands of us then to be the ones who head into Space to explore,
learn and expand.
2: If we humans aren't the only ones in this Universe-Wow. Then it is our duty to reach out to them and become a part of something much bigger than
ourselves. To teach, to learn and to expand as a race.
With either one, you can't help but feel that we are very miniscual in the big picture. But, you can't help but feel we are an important & special
part in the big picture.
This movie also changed me drastically on the UFO/Aliens Front. I joined ATS because to wanting to believe and seeking help finding the truth-which
The most major change is in my thinking that if they do exist, they apparently aren't here to harm us (not yet anyway). If anything, maybe life
started on Earth so long ago we can hardly conceive but that life headed into space-to teach and expand US. That is why they keep coming back here.
Why else-with such a big universe with billions and billions of stars with potential life substaining planets-would they keep coming back here to
Earth? (I know someone is typing: Because we taste good!). Seriously, why come back to deal with us crazy humans-if they can get here they don't
need to be interacting with us like they allegedly have been-unless, there isn't much out there? Maybe?
The other side of the coin is they are here to help us-learning and expand. Maybe to bring us up to speed. Or they are God and angles watching over
us. I could go on and on. Just like the movie, I could have sat there, with those 3d glasses on, All Day!. As I said, worth every penny to get in
and worth every penny we spend on Space Exploration! I wish I would have gotten into all of this when I was younger.
I kinda lost tract of where I was going but please, trust me, take your loved ones to see it and you U2U me if this movie doesn't change you-for the
better. I bet I don't get one U2U.
