Carl Sagan, Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Michael Faraday, Nikola Tesla…
NASA and the entire space agency. Our astronauts who sat on top of a big ass firework to get blasted off of the earth. The engineers and the designers that did everything they could to keep them safe.
The men and women who managed the accounting, cleaning, and maintenance.
The bureaucrats and the politicians who stood for something bigger than themselves.
The millions of people who sat glued to the screen, praying and hoping for a safe journey.
The camera guy who caught the show…
It’s always been a group effort and we’re a team.
We live in a universe, a cosmic reality where energy is neither created, nor destroyed. Only transferred:
“The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither created nor destroyed.”
So we keep going. We keep evolving…
We stand on the shoulders of giants, and for me, this song represents the everything we are, and everything we could be.
