And it may be truly said that man will no longer be limited to seeing "as through a glass darkly." The universe will be spread out clearly before him.
Fred L. Whipple (1952)

The most important discoveries will provide answers to questions that we do not yet know how to ask, and will concern objects we have not yet imagined.
