Events of minor note are said to occur upon the surface of this planet, but let us not unduly concern ourselves with it.

Around 13.8 billion years ago the universe as we know it came into an exceedingly hot, dense existance. Some time later I decided to write a blog about it.

I’m afraid I must inform you that you are now reading that very blog.

Welcome anyway.

On these virtual pages, if you find anything at all, it will be about the universe and things contained within it. The majority of visitors to this blog appear to have Earth-based IPs, but such visitors should be aware that the Earth will be mentioned only occasionally and in passing.

I will focus instead on the rest of everything, of which there is a lot.


All opinions expressed on this blog are probably not even my own.

    Just back from the annual astronomy night at my daughter’s grade school. Largish telescopes are brought to campus, the local astronomy club cheerily holds forth on the solar system, AU, Europa, etc. The otherwise bright children are nonplussed, and stand somewhat disconsolately in line to peer at things in the outer darkness. It is really odd how for granted we take all this vast madness. Even (and maybe especially) the kids. The Hubble Deep Field is made to appear as homely as George Washington’s apple tree. Why and how?!
