I yelp astronomy like a sun-dog, and paw the constellations like Ursa Major. — Mark Twain, letter to the San Francisco Alta California newspaper, August 1869.

"To be able to rise from the earth;
to be able, from a station in outer space,
to see the relationship of the planet earth to other planets;

to be able to dwell on an encounter of the human brain and spirit with the universe—
all this enlarges the human horizon . . ."
