To be sure, this time will shine. Regrettably, it may often shine with the coarse flame of anger and pride, with the sickly gleam of the fascist's polished boot. But it will also shine from our renewed hearts.
Perhaps even more grievously, we also tend to forget (or we never properly learn) that natural selection is not teleological
The "first light" images are just the beginning. Even at a quarter of its full strength MeerKAT - and ultimately the SKA project - seems set to prove that the sky really is the limit for what we can learn about our universe.
The plot covers 650 billion cubic light-years and contains 1.2 million galaxies.
Maybe we're just blips on some cosmic computer screen.
In the future science is likely to become much more self-aware, and by turning to the observer's creative role--dance with the universe as co-creators -- we may wind up being infinitely more powerful than we ever imagined ourselves to be.
There have been many scientific highlights of physics and astronomy in recent years: the Higgs Boson, landing a probe on a comet, and an amazing fly-by of Pluto. But all this is dwarfed by what has been announced this week. A new era of science has begun.
Science is advancing rapidly. We are eradicating diseases, venturing further into space and discovering a growing zoo of
  I was reminded recently that we live in a Catch-22 Universe. What makes it a Catch-22 is that no one is qualified to penetrate
Most people don't have to know the details but they certainly should know the impacts. Their lifestyles and maybe their lives
A new research observation by an international team of astrophysicists using the Hubble Space Telescope has led to the discovery of the largest sample of the faintest, smallest, and earliest known galaxies in the Universe.
The concept of a Dyson Sphere is not a new one. It was first described by futurist writer Olaf Stapledon in his 1937 science fiction novel, Star Maker.
When the idea of evolution sinks in - really sinks in - evolution hits home with power and an emotional rush.
But in the last half century or so, a great many theories either cannot be proven through gathering evidence or barely can be.
