You know what, I think all the terrorists, religious fundamentalists, extremists, and so on, should be made to sit inside a room and watch the Astronomy Pictures of the Day, one after the other, day after days, months after months. Will that make them learn our place in the universe, the fragility of the earth, and how alone (at least at present) we are as human beings in this universe? Will it make them shed their violence, and learn to live in peace?
I’m sure Carl Sagan, if he were alive today, would’ve personally orchestrated the whole show.
