L(oo)king back, as we look forward, to the great unknowns soon to be discovered by (our) new-found Curiosity (Mars rover). Music is (also) math.
A wildly momentous achievement for all mankind... This solitary moment marks the passage through a threshold to our future. What lies ahead is unknown, and quite unnerving in all it's mysteriousness and anticipation. But, what has taken place is--quite simply--sheer genius. An accomplishment made possible by the joining of so many different minds, backgrounds, races, sexes. Oh yes, ..and a few billion dollars. Though still, it cannot be denied that August 6th was an emotional moment for many--especially for the NASA scientists in this video.
Here's to Curiosity!
