I always liked the Pioneer 10 mission. It was very neat to know
that an object built by humankind would journey to the stars.
Little did anyone know just how successful and long enduring
that mission would become. An absolute triumph for the
technological achievement of humankind.
But, as I contemplate that Pioneer 10 whispered it's last
message to us, I feel a sense of both loss and unimaginable joy.
Sad to see the end of a mission, but overwhelmed with the
knowledge that the possibility exists that long after our
species has run its course and fades into oblivion, that little
piece of machinery will journey forever.....
Even beyond the stars... Beyond the Universe itself.....
A gift back to God from us with a special golden plate saying we
were, what we were.
