Pursuit of Light

Most of the images shown have graced this blog over the past few months, and you can find various descriptions of them with details if you search.

But that's not the point of this video. It's to inspire: wonder, awe, beauty, majesty, curiosity, and imagination.

So, a note to NASA: YES. This is how you do it. Well done.
