"Music in the soul can be heard by the universe."-Lao Tzu, "There's a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre, and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened."- D.A, How does the Man in the Moon cut his hair? Eclipse it. *bows*, I was up all night wondering where the Sun had gone;...then it dawned on me., Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes They call me on and on across the universe, Jai guru deva om, One of the big pictures, Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do, So my lad chewed and swallowed a dictionary. We gave him Epsom salts - but we can't get a word out of him.- Les Dawson, Space travels in my blood There ain't nothing I can do about it Long journeys wear me out But I know I can't live without it oh no, Spacewalker, The name is Jupiter from the galaxy I came to meet you to make you free Deliver to you a flower from A distant planet from where I come, This is ground control to Major Tom, When the moon is in the Seventh House And Jupiter aligns with Mars Then peace will guide the planets And love will steer the stars
This is more than a small amount special. The video is courtesy of NASA, and the best footage yet of Jupiter. It is exactly what you’d be seeing if you were on a spaceship going past the planet yourself! Incredible stuff. Also, the music that accompanies it is from the film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey – Jupiter Scene’, which is a very nice touch – nods
I’ve posted the video here, but ideally click the following link, because then it will fill your screen – you get far more of an experience there – https://vimeo.com/219993811
Prepare to be awed, for awed you shall be.
I leave you with a beautiful quote that sprang to mind as I contemplated the heavens;
“I was sat at the bottom of the garden a week ago, smoking a reflective cheroot, thinking about this and that – mostly that, and I just happened to glance at the night sky and I marvelled at the millions of stars glistening like pieces of quicksilver thrown carelessly onto black velvet. In awe I watched the waxen moon ride across the zenith of the heavens like an amber chariot towards the void of infinite space wherein the tethered bolts of Jupiter and Mars hang forever in their orbital majesty; and as I looked at all this, I thought, ‘I must put a roof on this lavatory.”-Les Dawson
