Newspapers & Magazines
"The night sky is the part of our environment that has been common to all cultures throughout human history. All have gazed up at the "vault of heaven" and interpreted it in their own way." -Martin Rees, British Astronomer Royal "For me, our true significance lies in our ability to understand and explore this beautiful universe." -Brian Cox "I believe everyone should have a broad picture of how the universe operates and our place in it. It is a basic human desire." -Stephen Hawking "We are part of this universe; we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us." -Neil deGrasse Tyson
