Amid a plethora of discoveries from distant spacecraft and rovers on remote worlds, between photographs from the limits of our cosmic horizon and the sound of merging black holes, is the human mind—a solo voyage of comprehension. Curiosity and cognition argue over the sublime nature of the cosmos, struggling to make sense of the mind-bending realities of our origin and orientation.
For those detached, disinterested or disengaged, interpretations of outer-space—including our place and significance within it—are closely knit to the commentary of science. Space is our home, and we occupy one of the countless dots within it. Making sense of this is an individual process to be encouraged, not instructed.
Here is a series of short, interactive stories about place, explored in a manner detached from traditional presentations of outer-space. Each narrative considers a spectrum of astronomical realities and concepts, navigated through lived experience and progressing in depth and complexity. It exists as an entry for those out of touch, an enjoyable resource of knowledge, and hopefully a stimulant of cosmic place and perspective.
