Well I’ve always been fascinated by the Universe. Since I was a kid I read a lot about planets, stars, etc. I find it kinda sad that most people don’t think about the Universe oftenly. To them, the Universe is just a bidimensional image in the night sky.
So I’ve been wondering… how important is astronomy? I know that an astronomer can’t make you have a more comftable life (most of what he does is for knowlegde and curiosity) but I still think that it is an amazing profession. When you think about it, most of what exists is out there. It is not here on Earth! So he studies the most common stuff in existence.
What do you think?
