For some reason that image of Triton inspires my imagination more than these spiders on Mars. I think it's because it's a moon and it's further out in
deep space. So many moons...
It's amazing to contemplate what's out there. And I don't just mean living organisms.
This article says there're trillions of rogue planets adrift between the stars in the Milky Way:
Free-floating planets in the Milky Way outnumber stars...
What will we know in 100 years? Hell, I don't understand what we have NOW. I'm constantly amazed and put in my place by people who lived 100's of
years ago. I'm so yesterday.
I think the article linked by the OP says all I could say about the spiders. I don't think we know everything about Mars, but there's a good chance
those're eruptions of gases as it suggests.
It all makes me so humble. I truly feel stupid. There's so much I'll never know. We'll never know? It's good to have pride about what we know, but
humility is more practical.
It sure is exciting, no? This life would suck terribly without these mysteries. What would there be to wake up to except more drudgery, day after day,
same old thing forever? But I guess without mysteries everything in this reality would be different, so there's no comparison.
