Beyond the goldfish bowl

"We don't know who discovered water, but we're certain it wasn't a fish." I've been fascinated by The Larger Universe since I was as small as I can remember. So I don't know how this particular fish first got a glimpse above the pond. But having seen the stars, I've always been aware of and awed by what else is out there, beyond the local ripples.
