The 06/10/13 Joy Jar

10 Jun


Moi had the great honor and the pleasure to preview the NASA exhibit, Destination: Station at Pacific Science Center in Seattle. The exhibit is totally awesome and does a good job of explaining the role of the Space Station in exploration. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is space exploration.

Science cuts two ways, of course; its products can be used for both good and evil. But there’s no turning back from science. The early warnings about technological dangers also come from science.”
Carl Sagan,
Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

We hold the future still timidly, but perceive it for the first time as a function of our own action.”
J.D. Bernal, The world, the flesh & the devil;: An enquiry into the future of the three enemies of the rational soul

Ever since there have been people, there have been explorers, looking in places where other hadn’t been before. Not everyone does it, but we are part of a species where some members of the species do—to the benefit of us all.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Reaching For the Stars: America’s Choice,
Natural History Magazine, April 2003

I have no doubt that Christians can support the exploration and use of space. The so-called “science commission” in Genesis 1:28 certainly seems to apply to any part of the material creation which God places within man’s reach.

Rev. Paul A. Bartz, Communications Director, Bible-Science Newsletter, October 1990
