I know by now you all know about Dubai, but do you know about Enceladus?
Dubai's still the bigger story here. But Enceladus could prove the biggest story anywhere. Enceladus is Saturn's fourth largest moon.
No big deal. But NASA's Cassini spacecraft has just detected icy crystals shooting off that moon. Very big deal — could be life there. Who knows? Maybe like the beginnings of life like it was here and maybe much more there — which kind of puts things in perspective here.
I mean, can you imagine if the life we've been striving to find way out there in galaxies far, far away is actually right around the corner? Right here in our cosmic neighborhood all along?
I wonder if the world here will unite in fascination with what's out there. I suspect it will make our own small arguments seem smaller. Our own parochial concerns all the more parochial.
Maybe we'll think bigger. Act bigger. I don't know. But this much I do know:
Life could be staring us in our solar system face. Another force could be touching us reminding us it's not just us. That this obscure third planet from the sun might have some company from an even more obscure fourth moon from Saturn. That obsess as we might, we are not the center of the universe, but just a part.
