Supernovas, neutron stars, back holes and even comets, exoplanets coming out of the Solar system show us a glimpse of the potential of what we can know about the universe even in it's observable part.
Recent years of discoveries are really unprecedented for the observation discoveries, including the predicted and unpredicted ones (for instance, the Milky Way galaxy arm 'break).


I find this article refreshing:

We keep humble understanding of how little we understand and bald intentions to go for as much as possible.
Astronomy is unstoppable in the sense that generations strive.

In some fields most papers' authorship is strictly alphabetical, either forward or reverse order. That's why I am "last author" in the AGLL "SQUEAMISH OSSIFRAGE" paper and Derek Atkins is "first author".

Reminds me of a classmate's (Adams) objections to oral presentations being done in alphabetical order. Rarely she was able to get reverse order applied.
