Across the Universe: Tides in our affairs — 2 Comments

  1. The European Space Agency(ESA) Lisa Pathfinder in its current L1 position has been allowed to move without constraint in the time period Dec 25, 2016 to Jan 14, 2017 measuring any existing tidal affects. The existence of such and their explanation would add to our aesthetic and practical understanding of God’s creation.

  2. I’m especially taken by your observation: “Science gives us answers about how the universe works; it doesn’t explain why we are so delighted to find those answers.” Perhaps an other question that, to my experience differentiates scientists from some other disciplines, is why we take as much delight in finding that our current answers fall short, and are motivated to push on.
