Ever-since I gained a grip on my conscience , there’s this feeling that excites me to the core, this one thing that never fails to catch my attention & gets me thinking bout its state of awesomeness! Everytime I see a solar eclipse, venus, Haley’s comet, everytime I witness a galactic event, I can’t stop falling in love with it. The problem is the more I think the more it boggles my mind. I am talking about the ‘universe & space’.
Full of stars, chemicals, nebulas, light, planets, asteroids, meteors, galaxies, blackholes and then earth. If we just leave aisde our daily chaotic life where we are too occupied dealing with life & its issues like highs-lows-love-job-appreciation-depreciation-ipods-success-failures-frustration-inferiority-superiority-black-white-etc.. and if we just zoom out we see we live in a beautiful planet which is surrounded by the etheric space all around. Try doing it when ur stuck in a traffic jam, just look up the sky, try looking up when ur finding an address nd ur finding its becoming difficult for u to find it, try looking up when ur repairing ur vehicles puncture, just look up nd u’ll just laugh at this whole chaos.
Now the very first question that always comes to my mind whenever I start thinking bout space is – how big is it? How far is it? What’s beyond it? Is it actually a space inside a space? Are there many more earths like ours? If there is any then are the creatures over there evolved? Or are we evolved upto their standards? Is there any limit to this darkness? Is the big-bang theory true? Does our soul travel through space after death? What is its parameter? Phew.. too much to think about I know.. bu that’s how mysterious it is even more interesting that your girlfriend 😉 I think it’s the most mindboggling topic to work on & I m extremely proud to find the explorations & achievements being done by people various astrophysicists across the globe especially Russian Astronauts & NASA.
We are the most dominant specie alive on this planet, we are just everywhere & we’ve made a huge mess by disturbing the ecological balance, by cutting down the trees, killing animals, etc. Having done so, it becomes our responsibility at the same time to take on this expedition since we’ve got I.Q. I believe it’s the prime, frontier & most Nobel task humans can do. Unfortunately one human’s lifetime isn’t enough to explore even a bit, so there needs to be a series of lives, generations, working dedicatedly on one project. Sounds difficult practically, bu that’s what will unreveal a lotta myseries.
The human expedition journey to space (which will certainly happen one day) will equally require the the chain-series of mankind. Generations will be reproduced in the spaceship to carry forward the expedition to the next level.
We are programmed to be patriot since our birth. “India is my country, all Indian are my brothers & sisters..” remember? By doing so we are restricting ourselves to the country code which are created by us only. Dinosaurs were not patriot, they just belonged here, similarly I think we should be the bigger person and do not indulge ourselves into doing time-killing activities. We’ve got just one life to live, and by the time you finish reading this blog u’ll realize that u’ve spent a quarter of your lifespan already.
I remember Late. Kalpana Chawla (lady of honor) said “ Iam a citizen of earth”. That literally moved me, thought at least there’s one human being who is not corrupted by nationality.
Ages have passed and we’ve known that spiritually awakened people generally these questions like – Who am I? Why am I here? What’s the purpose of this life? Well my friends that’s the purpose of life. The best thing a man can do is to dedicate his life in exploring more & more about this universe & its possibilities.
Its black, its endless. Galileo made a lotta great discoveries, Einstein became an astrophysicist, Stephen Hawkings dedicated his entire life to space & discoveries of this universe, Hubble invented the great Hubble telescope, which snapped natures some of the most marvelous & surprising images like a star becoming a pulsar, blackholes taking its toll over galactic bodies and sucking even the light , beautiful debris of gases around a nebula. Oh my Gorsh it’s the most adventurous thing gifted by nature. Unexplored, unending, undying, and beyond our imagination.
By the way did you know that we ‘re not sure if Orion Constellation still exists. Now u might say that we can see it in the night sky, then how is it possible? Well, Orion is 1340 Light Years away from Earth and we all know that stars do have a specific lifespan, so just in case one of the star from Orion Constellation has exhausted all its fuel, it will take us another 1340 years to figure that out as the light emitted by that star is still continuing to travel to us. Isn’t that a crazy fact?
Our lives are also a gift of stars, we are technically ‘Stardust’, we’ve got magnesium, calcium, carbon, iron, oxygen, nitrogen and every other component that the space has in it. The next big question would be if the formation of earth just a co-incidence or is there a purpose behind that too. I am not a believer of God, but I do believe that there exists a superpower, a force an unsaid rule that binds & defines our life.
We’ve discovered the power of nuclear energy and also have developed nuclear energy plants (on a positive side) & have developed nuclear bombs (on a negative side) but, the point to think is that it took mankind a rwal long time to finally develop it, now nuclear energy is not something new, it is the result of energy on Sun & other stars so imagine how many more possible discoveries and inventions are still pending, if discovering nuclear energy took us lakhs of years then how many more lakhs years will it take to solve the mystery of time, purpose of life-death, human clones & more..
Each & everything in our lives is directly linked with space. For example – we’ve been taught since childhood – As you sow so shall u reap, which means that if u do good things u will get good returns someday & vice-versa. Sir Newton simplified it in scientific language by stating its 3rd law – To every action there is an equal & opposite reaction. Now its not something new, its just a discovery, a great one indeed. We all know that to every star’s collision there’s an equal amount of friction resulting into a specific amount of emission of energies like light, heat, sound & nuclear energy. 2 Hydrogen atoms contribute to form Hydrogen Gas. The position of stars contributes to shaping the events in our lives, this science is named ‘Astrology’ similarly one male sperm and an one female egg contributes to give birth to a child. It is all based on the basic natural principal of space, so the point I want to convey here is that if we need an answer, the answer is right there in the space.
Miss Universe is a the ultimate beauty crown rewarded to the deserving lady, I seriously hope, she understands what worth this crown has.
