While the world is getting battered
By war upon war each day
And honest unbiased journalism is all

Considering cosmic distances, that’s not so awfully fast. As a result, if you look at the nearest star Proxima Centauri in 2012, what you’re seeing is happening in 2008. We are in the Milky Way galaxy. When we look at our next-door neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, we are looking 2 and a half million years back in time. Continue reading
