Work was dead this afternoon. So I watched Discovery.
Specifically, a documentary on Hubble and the search for inhabitable worlds.
It was, I admit, fantastic. Though I didn’t catch the end.
We got a rush, you see. And before long Humpteys was packed.
Although the crowd was quieter than expected.
When I had the time, I saw why. They were transfixed, lost in the idea of worlds outside ours, life upon them, and the possibility we might go there.
…the wonderful thing about this story is; it’s true.
The next time I’m disappointed in humanity, I’ll try to remember it.
