  1. It is not easy to see how so much variety could come from Big Bang – single explosive beginning, that the vast variety of our own planet could all have grown from a singularity. And that is but a tiny drop in the ocean…
    I like your wonderful captures of our own Galaxy – The Milky Way. Good work, Roger.
