Space Is Out There!

There is no shortage of amazing stuff to remind me why tomorrow is just plain awesome.  Tomorrow hasn't happened yet... and though we are able to feel comfort with simple predictions of our immediate future, the reality is, we know jack. 

Space is vast and with crazy timescales to go around, who is to say what is within the realm of possibility?

Whether it is small asteroids that suddenly, but harmlessly fly by our planet, like 2018 CB did on February 9th; crazy interstellar objects like Oumuamua which was first spotted on October 19; or the discovery of 7 Earth-sized planets just 40 light years away -  there's really no shortage of real-life awesome to fuel our imagination.

There's nothing like thinking about things like this to put a little perspective in your life.  Even though we are unlikely to ever experience these wonders up front and personal, nothing stops us from digesting such inspiration into practical motivation.

Close your eyes and take a moment to imagine riding an asteroid or visiting nearby star system and suddenly, we are flirting with the impossible.
