The Hubble Deep Field: The Most Important Image Ever Taken

In 2003, the Hubble Space Telescope took the image of a millennium, an image that shows our place in the universe. Once you understand what this image represents, you will be forever changed by it.

An exercise in thought such as the one presented in this video can really allow folks to SURRENDER so much of their worries and feel secure that, in the big picture, the Divine takes care of it all -- even if gas is over four bucks a gallon!

Many people, including myself, were excited by the recent arrival of the latest Mars lander on that planet’s polar region. Perhaps it will give us clues as to the possibilities of life beyond Earth. But in cosmic terms, Mars is the house next door. All that effort, and thousands of years of human progress, have gotten us only a tiny distance away from home.

There is a wide, wide universe left to explore.
