Quote: Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that’s precise, predictive and reliable – a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional. — Brian Randolph Greene (1962-) American theoretic physicist

Observation: One meter is 39.37 U.S. inches or 1/299,792,458 (.0000000033) of the distance light travels in a vacuum in one second, thus 299,792,458 meters per second. Since light travels at about 186,282.397051220 miles per second, it travels 5,878,139,427,505.244 miles in one year. Our nearest star neighbor is 4.2251 light years (17.85 trillion miles) away.
