The frontier is everywhere (Video)
It's been a tough few days, so I thought I'd wrap up the day with something bending toward wonder and beauty.
Just two missions away from the end of the space shuttle program, NASA has been hard hit by budgetary cuts, and YouTube user Damewse blames it on a bad PR job. He's decided to take matters into his own hands. "In all of their brilliance, NASA seems to have forgotten to share their hopes and dreams in a way the public can relate to, leaving one of humanity's grandest projects with terrible PR and massive funding cuts," he writes in the introduction to a video he created for the struggling space agency.
It's a beautiful short film, and today is a good day to hear this message: "For all our failings, despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness."
