Chances are that by the time you’re reading this, about, oh, some 150 million miles from you, the Curiosity Rover, Nasa’s latest mission to Mars, will have successfully completed its landing and is happily scurrying about freezing desert planes to collect data to investigate the feasibility of a manned flight at some point in the not-too-near future. I don’t know about you, but I find it helpful to sometimes recall that we truly are nothing but specks of dust on the grander scheme of things, so it’s really not worth worrying all too much about your bank account statements, diets or whatever else might be ruining your day. Have a great week.
