Hello all!  How is every one doing today?  I hope you're all doing well!  I'm still in a fog trying to comprehend some of this theories put forth by Stephen Hawking and his contemporaries in the special / interview that aired on the Science Channel last night.  I love hearing theories about quantum mechanics and the birth of the universe.  Especially since we really know very little about our origins.  Consider that fact that we have just now detected two new moons on Saturn and a new gas on Jupiter.  If we're still finding things in our own solar system, how much is out there that we haven't even begun to imaging yet?  Science is so cool...  WaterChill...
