In the inky black near Ursa Major,
NASA sent the Hubble into the void.
On just a hunch and dangerous wager,
And our perception of space was destroyed.
Three thousand galaxies were discovered.
Eight years pass and once again they succumb
To curiosity and recovered
Light from ten thousand more, who could fathom
Many infinite possibilities.
How vast is the universe’s expanse?
Of one hundred billion more galaxies,
How could humanity deny the chance
We are an infinitesimal blip
On another planet’s telescope trip.
