stargazingfella: Absolutely, nature is the best painter. Look at evening sky with mix of paints we could never do ourself, at night sky with such vastness and stars studded in such a astounding way we couldn’t fathom.
aurora36: It was actually Athena who gave Hera Heracles to nurse, telling her she found the abandoned newborn in the field.Hera's motherly instincts kicking in and she started to nurse him.Heracles however bit her on a nipple and she withdrew him quickly, which is when the milk squirted all over the sky creating milky way.His name was first Alcides, he was renamed Heracles- for the glory of Hera, in order to appease her
Fannysu: I think in order to realize how big something can be, a lot of previous knowledge is necessary and age.I remember when I was a a child I was amazed by the height of some hills. Nowadays , I realised I was impressed just because I was a little girl. However, the universe still amazes me, I really can figure out its size. And I can't even imagine...no human being can, I guess
stargazingfella: You are absolutely correct. Childhood memories feels different now for our today's perspective. And this video shows different scale of size on single perspective.. tooo small to huge.
stargazingfella: As suspected (mentioned my reservations in the blog above), there seems to be over speculation when media translated NASA's observation of neutrino detection.
But one way or other, every anomaly pushes our to revisit our models, revise our theories and occasionally breaks our mold and come up with new science. Who knows this may be the case but we are not there just yet.
