    I absolutely love science. I am fascinated by it. When it comes to astronomy and the cosmos, there is a beauty and a magnificence that is unmatched by anything ever created by mankind. Not the Statue of David, not the Pyramids of Giza, not the Sistine Chapel, none of that could ever compare to what is out there in the cosmos. If you don't believe me and speaking of cosmos, watch this video with Neil DeGrasse Tyson answering the question, "What is the most astounding fact about the universe?"
