Hi David, thanks for the comment. Yes, we are all searching for some explanation, some meaning. Maybe, discoveries like this help in our understanding, or just open up more unknowns.

Maybe, he will grow one. 😂

I'm fascinated with our fascination Jon..and you have captured some of that here. What is it that we are constantly looking for something beyond ourselves, I think that is how we move is the good thing in mankind, our desire to seek.

I'm pleased someone has written about the snowman at the edge of the universe, does he have a carrot for a nose?

This ancient snowperson (being pc here) is an old trans-Neptunian, located way out in the Kuiper belt.

Could be more aptly named peanut I felt.

Jon, well up to date my old comrade.

I had a similar thoughts to Brian to be honest

Yep great, but at what cost?

However It is now immortalised in Jon's wonderful quatrain for all eternity

Very topical Jon. Purely from a business perspective this project would never have survived a cost/benefit analysis.
