Danish Astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601) built a fabulous Palace on the tiny Island of Ven, now Swedish territory.
Two cornerstones wore the encryptions: “By looking up, I look down” and “By looking down, I look up” (“Suspiciendo Despicio”, “Despiciendo Suspicio”).
NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration‘s Day of Rememberance has probably something to deal with Brahe’s stones:
when we look at the Sky, embrace its majesty and inspire our spirit to great adventures, we see our earthly matters in a new perspective.
Also, when looking at the wonders of Nature, also Human Nature, we’re called to look at the mysteries of the wider Space they’re part of.
Tycho Brahe knew that Micro and Macro-domains pull one-another.
Space trips were a dream, then a moon-shot project (literally), then an adventure. Tourism is next.
We must thank the first pioneers: they placed cornerstones for us, enlarging our horizons.
Many of them sacrificed their lives – we won’t forget that.
