We wonder about what is beyond us [link]

A defining quality of humanity is our wonder about what is beyond us. We especially wonder about the stuff above us. What is that stuff? What can that stuff tell us about us. When Galileo looked at that stuff through his telescope to see moons orbiting Jupiter and phases of Venus as it orbited our sun, he gave us a new view of what is beyond us and put us on a path to trustworthy science.
