astrobunny To the amateur #astronomers out there... my daughter asked me to update my Amazon wish list to help her with gift buying. So, of course, I thought of #astronomy goodies. But I think I've got everything I need. I have a 10 inch #Orion #Dobsonian #telescope. Any wish list ideas? (The only one I could think of is a tracking Dob - but terribly expensive!) I considered a dew zapper but a dob is basically built in such a way that it doesn't dew up easily (at least mine doesn't). Any unique, cool astronomy related gift ideas, goodies? (Stock photo used but same model as my scope). 24min

universe247 The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.
