Our image of evil Space Aliens derives not from imagined knowledge of how we think they will behave, but from actual knowledge of how we treat one another.

Relative to a Schoolroom Globe… Planet Mars is a mile away (1.6 km). The Moon is 30 feet away (10 meters). The International Space Station orbits 3/8th of an inch (1 cm) above the surface. Branson & Bezos this month ascend the thickness of two dimes (2 mm) above the surface.

Right now, in the USA, 99% of people being hospitalized & dying from COVID-19 are those who chose not to be vaccinated. This confirms that whoever’s been advising you to decline the Vaccine, does not value your health or longevity. A form of biological “unnatural” selection.

Dear Science Deniers, (Anti-vaxers, anti-maskers, climate hoaxers, flat-Earthers, etc) You found one another & communicate via stupefyingly advanced technologies that pivot on the discoveries of scientists. Just thought I’d remind you of that fact. Sincerely, Your Smart Phone

If you spend too much time being too cool for school, you might end up too ignorant to get a Job.

Godspeed @WilliamShatner . Will reach Mach 3 (3x the speed of sound) on ascent. That’s 0.00034% of Warp Factor 1, but it’s a start.

Odd. No one is in denial of America’s Aug 21 total solar eclipse. Like Climate Change, methods & tools of science predict it.

You Matter. Unless you multiply yourself by the speed of light squared. Then you Energy.

I dream of a world where truth shapes people's politics, rather politics shaping what people think is true.

You know it's true… Every disaster movie begins with a scientist being ignored.

Since the Universe has no center, you can’t be it.

We’re just sayin’. To abolish mask -wearing laws in some States while the rest of the Nation keeps theirs is like designating a peeing section of the swimming pool.

Ever look up at night and feel small? Don't. Instead feel large. Atoms in our bodies trace to the remnants of exploded stars. We are Stardust. We are alive in the universe. And the universe is alive within us.

Since the Universe has no center, you can’t be it.

The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.
