First off, apologies for not being a punctual blogger. An upper respiratory infection and the end of the semester have conspired to make me look quite flakey. Fear not, the end (of the semester) is near.
Secondly, I want to you all meet my new love, Dr. George Smoot
(He's not as iconoclastic as Feynman, or as articulate as Sagan, or as adamant as Hawking, but the man gives great Universe. And he brought pictures!)
If you have a few minutes, well, more like twenty take a look at the beginning of time and space.
We are in the presence of all time, all the time. Cool.
