“..history today is roughly in the same place astronomy was “when Galileo first looked up with his telescope…
Once you have physical pieces of the past … the entire toolkit of the scientific revolution can be applied to it,” he said. “If you have leather, you can look at what the cow drank. If you have lumber, you can see what forest it grew in...”

fascinating.

“When I think fondly of bookstores, I’m not thinking of how smooth the cashier transaction was, how large or well-organized the shelves were, how many employees asked if they could help me find anything. I’m thinking of getting uninterrupted time to read.”

“Πλειάδες - It probably derives from plein ("to sail") because of the cluster's importance in delimiting the sailing season in the Mediterranean Sea”

Seven Sisters, rising right ahead of me in a surprisingly clear sky.
i love this cluster, and always check my peripheral vision when it’s up.
they are always a fantastic sight, whatever you use to see them: your own eyes, binoculars or a telescope.

“ Europa’s ocean could be the most promising place in the solar system to go looking for it…
Europa’s ocean – 40-100 miles (64-160km) deep, 10 to 15 miles beneath its icy surface – has made the moon a leading contender in the search for life.”

“Look, what educators do is design a program of instruction that builds the basics first, that the student can then build on to reach more complex topics.
