“Space is a both symbol of human ambition and an idea about existence. We gaze upon its dark expanse from earth and see that it is full of stars, yet we think of it as empty. We examine its depths up close with the aid of technology and marvel at the riot of color and tumult of its explosions. We begin to see that its blackness is so much more than black.”
