The Contingent Universe

DESCRIPTION: The ninth of a group of pages on Astronomy (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in the astrophysics of stars and galaxies. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources in Astronomy and Astrophysics, Observational Astronomy, the study of Stars and Galaxies, and the pursuit of Amateur Astronomy.

KEYWORDS: astronomy; astrophysics; cosmos; galaxy; interstellar medium; ISM; Milky Way; nebula; quasar; space; star; star cluster; universe

Star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Galaxies and The Milky Way

The Great Path has no gates;
Thousands of roads enter it.
When one passes through this gateless gate
He walks freely between heaven and earth.
Ekai (from Burnham, 3:1624)

Faintly it gleams, like a summer road,
When the light in the west is sinking low,
Silent with star-dust! By whose abode,
Does the Winter Street in its windings go?
And who are they, all unheard and unseen -
O, who are they, whose blessed feet
Pass over that highway smooth and sheen?
What pilgrims travel the Winter Street?
Edith Thomas (from Burnham, 3:1628-9)

We are peripheral... I mean we are on the edge.
Harlow Shapley

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room.
Arvid Chalmers (Salt Spring Hysterical Society)

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars--on stars where no human race is.

To scare myself with my own desert places.
