Space

Space our Final Frontier

As we investigate further and deep into space we discover that what we know is little, what we need to know is much and what already knew may not be correct.

Have you ever gone out and on a cloudless night, when there is no bright Moon in the sky or city lights to block your view, and been blown away by the astonishing number of stars in the sky? Maybe you are lucky enough to have seen the Milky Way spread across the night sky.  Either way, it is often something you cannot get out of your mind once you have seen it.  But you are not alone. In fact, for as long as people have been around to look up into the sky, we have wondered what the many spots of light in the sky mean. Thousands of years ago, the early cultures used the heavens to plant crops, time major events and develop religions.  Early man observed the heavens because he knew by doing so helped make predictions about the coming seasons.  Then along came some scientists like Galileo, who perfected the telescope and allowed us to see deeper into space and begin studying the stars and galaxies beyond them.  Today still most of us can only stare into space in awe struck wonder of its beauty and majesty and dream.
