I Just wanted to highlight and discuss the possible reason why our societies and modern civilisations are no longer as interested in the sky as our
great ancestors once were !
For example , look at this wonderful picture taken in south america with no light pollution
Then take a look at this
Is it any wonder that kids in modern cities these days no longer look up to the sky and are facinated by the glory of space !
It really makes me wonder , if we didnt have cities or at least less light pollution would our species , put more energy into exploring space , would
our children look up into the sky at night and wonder what it would be like to travel to these stars intstead of looking across a dark city at the
brightest lights there ! A football stadium , A billboard !
Would our governments put more funding into the space program if our children took up more space based studies at university instead of other
programmes if there wasnt as much light pollution !
It actually makes me sad that I cant see this in the sky at night !
What do you all think ?
