I love space, I love all about the Cosmos and the Universe. It doesn't make me feel small. It is no coincidence I worked on Star Wars as a commercial artist. I wasn't merely loitering around the Presidio falling into the Star Wars pit. I dreamed to become am Astronaut when I was little. I became a painter instead, next best thing.
"Today we announced that our spacecraft Voyager 1 is now in interstellar space."
And my favorite question and answer:
" Q.: What is the application of this kind of knowledge? Understanding how particles move through space?
A.: James Van Allen once told me that the pursuit of knowledge was a sufficient answer for questions about applicability of space exploration. It's all about understanding who we are, where we come from, and where we're going. We're all the stuff of stars, and now were actually examining that 'stuff' " Bill Kurth, Voyager plasma wave co-investigator, University of Iowa
