Once the wondrous vastness filled us; Now we fill the wondrous vastness
In 1874 a French astronomer named Jérôme Eugène Coggia discovered a comet that would thereafter bear his name. He documented its passing over Marseilles twice that summer, the second time with an increase in visibility.
In 1942 the first man-made object launched into outer space served as the beginning of space exploration. Since then humanity's technological advances have been left, and forgotten, in the space surrounding our planet.
