Be careful! Douglas Adams warned us about this type of thing:

“The prospective victim of the Total Perspective Vortex is placed within a small chamber
wherein is displayed a model of the entire universe - together with a microscopic dot bearing the legend “you are here”. The sense of perspective thereby conveyed destroys the victim’s mind.”


Shouldn’t the Gaia satellite point at Earth? Space is whatever the opposite of Gaia is.


They can turn it around and pan Gaia whenever they want.


Are you saying the galaxy is evil?
