Space Is Cold, but We Are Not

Boulet comic
A mass of incadescent gas ...

Drawing by Boulet

If you have five minutes—and I think you do—then I urge you to go take a look at this lovely and wonderful comic by French artist Boulet. Yes, there are a few typos in the translation, but it’s charming and sweet, and expresses quite a few points I strongly believe in myself.

Science is not cold, nor scientists unemotional. If we were, we wouldn’t be doing this in the first place. For so many, it is our sense of awe and wonder that drives us.
