“Arise and Be All That You Dreamed”
“Worrying about your own happiness is much less important than concerning yourself with the well being of those around you.”
"No one can hurt us like we've hurt ourselves. We're all architects of our own private hell."
"All of us have scars and they make us who we are today"
Experience a solar eclipse from above
On November 14, 2012, tens of thousands of viewers across northeastern Australia got a great view of one of the most awe-inspiring sights in astronomy — a total solar eclipse. Of course many fantastic photos and videos were taken of the event, but one team of eclipse hunters from Romania went a step further — or should I say higher — and captured the event from a video camera mounted on a weather balloon soaring over 36,800 meters up!

Did you catch the amazing filtered photos that NASA captured of the August 31 coronal mass ejection? No? Well, go check them out to fill your daily quota for “wow”.
And after you do all that, get a dose of perspective above (super hi-res version here), with Earth placed to scale in front of the CME. Is it hot in here or is it just me?
