The Main Asteroid Belt, with nearly 400,000 designated asteroids, lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. This is the home of Ceres, Juno, Vesta and Pallas.

I’ve been thinking a lot about space. It was one of those slow-motion realisations how little we are, how far we are from everything else in our solar system. This idea of distance started kind of haunting me. How do you go forth and accomplish things but not end up leaving everything you started out with in the dust?

There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.

‘Easter’ is a movable event, calculated by the relative positions of sun and moon, an impossible way of fixing year by year the anniversary of a historical event, but a very natural and indeed inevitable way of calculating a solar festival. These changing dates do not point to the history of a man, but to the hero of a solar myth.
— Annie Besant
