And then it saves humanity by detonating all the nuclear weapons orbiting Earth.

Seriously though, one of the things I absolutely love about the rapidly progressing state of camera technology is its ability to capture the transcendentally more awe-inspiring “technology” of Mother Nature with increasing precision.

My three favorite dreams of the Star Trek universe are the medical technology, macroscopic teleportation (transporters) and the Doctor’s holographic camera.

Two out of three ain’t bad.

Youre just looking at the culmination of about 1.7 Billion or so years of practice, getting it wrong multiple times along the way. It probably was a passing train.
