“What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?”

Listen to Neil deGrasse Tyson. (under 4 minutes) This is goosebump stuff:

The NASA image below was taken on the International Space Station, some 240 miles above Earth.  It features the 4 largest metropolitan areas in Texas, USA.  It looks like the universe.  Wait…it looks like neurons firing—no wait…the image looks like both.

Texas from space

Twinkle, twinkle little stars or firing neurons?

  1. Love the Tyson quote. I live in perpetual befuddlement, I just try to go with the flow, haha.

    The Texas photo is mind-blowing. I love flying at night and seeing all the lights below. I’ve often thought they looked liked stars. From space, Texas looks like its own galaxy. (Which living here, about sums it up.)

  2. Awesome. I’m a big fan or Mr. Tyson. I also had a traumatic brain injury when I was in my early 20s. That’s why they call me Goldfish. 🙂

    • LOL, Professor. I was just sharing with another friend of mine a TTW program that was another one that knocked it out of the ballpark for me. http://youtu.be/MJBmWvuTrVY I got excited because of the research I’m doing with the electromagnetic field that surrounds the Earth. Oh, do I ever have some fascinating research to share with you. After you’ve watched that clips, watch/listen to a lecture by Dr. Michael Persinger. http://youtu.be/9l6VPpDublg I really don’t care whether there’s an afterlife or not. What I’m interested in is the possibility of — well, you will see in Dr. Persinger’s lecture. 😉 If you do watch it, be sure to watch the question and answer part. The ending — what he says — just wow. That’s all I’ve got to say.

      • Are you ever going to let me finish “my duties”? LOL

        I totally get Connectivity that Tyson refers — a series I posted about; but you probably already know that, huh? 😉

        Watching these videos is next on my longer To Do List now…thank you very much! 😉
