Some people ask, “Why explore space?” A child in a backyard might as well ask, “Why worry about what’s beyond the fence?”

Astrophysicists estimate the universe is composed of approximately 100 Billion galaxies, with each galaxy containing billions of stars. The Milky Way, our own galaxy, has over 100 Billion stars – many much larger than our own sun.

It would seem very relevant to know about the world we live in, and to grow forward into our destiny. The search for life out there is alive and well.

Besides, little things like dark matter, impossible to see, impossible not to feel, and dark energy, a mysterious (as yet, to us) energy pushing the universe apart not “might” but DO affect humankind’s origins, destiny, and your daily life....

But don’t let your eyes gloss over and your mental gears slip into neutral…

Featured guests of http://ThinkRichRadio.com , Kimberly K. Arcand and Megan Watzke, of NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, headquartered on Earth at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, have collaborated on Your Ticket to the Universe: A Guide to Exploring the Cosmos to make discovery about our universe enjoyable and accessible.

“The sky belongs to everyone.” That’s the premise of their guidebook to the Universe. In the same way you don’t need a medical degree to know when you’re sick or a doctorate in literature to appreciate a novel,  even those of us who don’t have advanced degrees in astronomy can gain access to the wonder and experience our Universe has to offer.

You will discover so much and, further, be amazed by how much is left to be explored in this vast Universe. That’s a promise.
