There is good evidence that Venus once had liquid water and a much thinner atmosphere, similar to Earth billions of years ago.

Trees bear fruits only to be eaten by others; the fields grown grains, but they are consumed by the world. Cows give milk, but she doesn't drink it herself - that is left to others. Clouds send rain only to quench the parched earth. In such giving, there is little space for selfishness.

The reason we have the stars twinkle at night is because the light is being kind of blurred by the atmosphere around the Earth.

So it is kind of like looking at the sun from the bottom of a swimming pool, versus looking at the sun above the swimming pool.

Michael J. Massimino

Umberto Eco

All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.

Philip Johnson

The Fuse is a solar energy station in orbit 22,000 miles above the earth. But it's more than just a big solar panel array. The Fuse is also home to Midway City, a technically illegal settlement that grew out of a bunch of engineers who decided they'd rather make a new life in space than return home to earth.

Antony Johnston
