    I wasn't sure where to put this, so it sits here unless a mod has a better place.
    Timely find posted on another forum I belong to.
    This ties into a thread recently about time/space/ what we do and do not know.
    I think it worthy of it's own thread
    It is absolutely Awe inspiring to me, hope you enjoy and share

    Yes, I love this and can spend quite a lot of time tooling around going through all the objects. I think the greatest amount we do not know exists on the microscopic scale and beyond. Of course, even beyond our own solar system can be a challenge to investigate because we do so remotely or with very limited technology. Come to think of it, we don't really know much at all.

    What I know is only what I think I know and what I think I know is that I know enough to know that I don't know all that I need to know. You know?
