THRILLING THURSDAY: Nothing more thrilling than the stars, the Universe.
“The time will come when diligent research over long periods will bring to light things that now lie hidden. A single life time, even though entirely devoted to rese
arch, would not be enough for the investigation of so vast a subject… . And so this knowledge will be unfolded through long successive ages. There will come a time when our descendants will be amazed that we we did not know things that are so plain to them… . Many discoveries are reserved for ages still to come, when memory of us will have been effaced. Our universe is a sorry little affair unless it has in it something for every age to investigate … . Nature does not reveal her mysteries once and for all.”
— Seneca, Natural Questions Book 7, c. first century.
