That’s not space. . .

May 30, 2012

That’s not space, that’s just really high in the sky. . .  I was brought up watching Star Trek, watching them “Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before”.  When I was 9, I watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon and when I was 17 I was introduced to the conflicts that were happening between the Galactic Empire and the rebels.  And I knew one day mankind would conquer space and explore the heavens,  and now after all these years we have the International Space Station, so cool.  But just the other day I heard on a news report that the International Space Station was 350 km above the earth.  350 km?  I never thought of it before but that’s just about the same distance as Halifax to Sussex.  If I could get my Smart Car off the ground I could be at the Space Station in three and a half hours.  That’s not space, that’s just really high in the sky.
Mankind thinks so much of itself and its achievements, we say “we’ve been to the heavens and there is no God.”  The reality is, with all that we have learned and all that we have accomplished we have barely touched the very edge of His creation.  Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
