7 reasons I'm fascinated with space

Helsinki, 4 degrees

In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance.

Today at lunch, I had a conversation about space with my colleagues. It's a topic that I find myself thinking about from time to time, always with the same amount of fascination. I, therefore, thought that I would share my personal reasons why:

Tänään lounaalla, juttelin kollegoideni kanssa avaruudesta. Avaruus on asia, jota mietin silloin tällöin, aina yhtä lumoissani. Näinpä ajattelin jakaa omia syitä miksi asia kiinnostaa: 

1) There is only that much that science can explain - the rest is there for us to wonder upon / tiede pystyy vain selittämään tiettyyn pisteeseen asti avaruuden faktoja

2) The perspective it gives to life on planet earth - the biggest problem on earth seems small when one thinks about from a spacial perspective / näkökulma, jota avaruus antaa maailman asioihin ja ongelmiin

3) Stars & Northern lights and other phenomena - during the last two night we've been lucky enough to see Northern lights in Helsinki! / tähdet, revontulet ja muut luonnonilmiöt

4) Its sense of calmness - space's extremity has a calming effect on me / sen tarjoama rauha

5) It reminds us that the earth is amazing - just look how beautiful it is! / se muistuttaa meitä maailman mahtavuudesta

6) Commander Hadfield's video could be the greatest music video of all time - no matter how many times I've seen it, it still amazes me / komentaja Hadfieldin video on ehkä maailman paras musiikkivideo

7) Astronauts - true heroes if you ask me / astronautit


What is your relationship with space, do you have one? What are your thoughts about space?

Mikä on sinun suhteesi avaruuteen, onko sinulla sellaista? Mitä ajatuksia avaruus sinussa herättää?

What's your opinion?

  1. I am also obsessed with space, and I had to listen to Commander Hadfield's video before the comment :) I didn't know it, but David Bowie's version, which is one of my favorite songs! You were so lucky to see the northern lights, something I really love and would love to see! But I still didn't!

    1. I'm happy to hear that you share my interest :) Glad that you liked the space video!
