Living in times of wonders. Which achievement impressed you most?
In the last days you could find me feverishly checking the news to get yet another detailed picture of Pluto. Tuesday night (Berlin time) I could see the latest and probably most detailed shot of the 9th planet in our solar system.
It was spectacular (take a look at BBC.co.uk or NASA).
New Horizons’ flyby of 2,370km-wide Pluto is a key moment in the history of space exploration, science and humanity. But so is the Philae landing on a comet, or the discovery of the Higgs boson amongst other in the Large Hadron Collider (fyi: the LHC teams just announced discovery of new pentaquark).
We are living in exciting times and there is more coming. The era of tech started long ago but does not seem to be slowing down and my news feed turns more futuristic day after day.
Just out of curiosity 🙂 Which achievement in the last years impressed you most?
