Congratulations to the US Women’s Soccer Team — World Cup Champs. And welcome to New York City, my home town, for a Ticker Tape Parade this week, up the Canyon of Heroes. No more ticker-tape, but just know that when we dump shredded paper on you it’s our highest sign of respect.

As a matter of fact, it is Rocket Science. A shout-out to for keeping the dreams of Space alive for countless millions of people, and for revealing this mindset to untold others, who don’t yet know why.

Scaling up from the weight & wingspan of a Condor, Dumbo would need an “ear-span” of about 100-feet.

All light is a form of radiation -- electromagnetic radiation. If you can see a galaxy across the universe, its radiation has reached you -- albeit highly diluted for having traveled so far.

During a solar eclipse, the Moon’s shadow crosses Earth’s surface at speeds exceeding 1,000 mph. So if you're in the path, the poetic phrase, “I’m being followed by a Moon Shadow” is just wrong. Better: "I’m being chased by a Moon Shadow that will catch me and darken my skies."
