A Safe Distance

by Rob Rey

While the vast distances of space can be frighteningly expansive as we look out from our tiny vantage point on Earth, it’s worth remembering that it’s the same great distances which statistically protect us from violent impacts and cataclysmic collisions with comets, asteroids, and other objects. In fact, the distances between objects is so great that our galaxy could collide with another galaxy and the likelihood of a foreign object striking Earth would remain quite low as stars and planets slipped past each other in the spaces between.

Art to help make science a more meaningful part of our lives.

Through countless mythological and religious traditions, humanity has proven to have a deep-seated need for awe-inspiring stories and the experience of wonder. With a powerful resonance, these stories provide a framework for understanding where we fit in our communities, and in our cosmos. They can also give a us a feeling of shared connection and participation with the rest of humanity, helping us to show our more caring and compassionate side.

What are the resonant, positive, and awe-inspiring stories of today? How can our expanding scientific knowledge drive our enchantment with the natural world and grow our empathic interests toward our fellow humans? Exploring these questions visually, Rob hopes to promote or create the stories that best help us to achieve these goals.
