Mirror Poem Contrasts Jupiter Space Missions with Amazon Spirituality Traditions

This poem was inspired by a few news stories this week, some of which I’ve already written about on here and my other travel25years.wordpress.com blog. I guess it started on Saturday with the latest NASA’s Unexplained Files, which is a repeat on the Quest channel from 2016.

Jupiter’s Moons Space Missions

It had a feature about Jupiter’s moons having a good possibility of life inside their icy oceans, and mentioned some trips are planned. I looked it up today and that inspired the top half of the poem. The good news is there are two planned, the bad news is they are not due to send back info until 2033! I think that shows why we haven’t found life beyond our planet yet, as we can hardly reach anywhere in our solar system, and it takes so long. That’s not a complaint, just an observation. The space scientists are amazing people, and achievements in my lifetime have been incredible.

A little Doctor Jekyll and Hyde wordplay fun developed in lines 3 and 7!

Amazon Ayahuasca Spirit Animals

I thought of contrasting it with an Amazon bottom half after seeing an article on MSN today about over eighty new human settlements found there where the Amazon jungle has been cleared. Of course that’s a bittersweet story. Like the new finds at Tikal and elsewhere, I hope it doesn’t mean more deforestation.

I started off thinking I’d have Amazon as the final word, mirroring Ariane, the rocket set to carry the European Space Agency’s JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) spacecraft (Wikipedia). NASA also has a mission planned at the same time. However, it developed into a spiritual journey path, with Amazon’s centrality to the lower half more mirroring Jupiter’s centrality to the top half in line 4. Ariane is better reflected by ayahuasca, which traditionally provides the propulsion for spiritual flight journeys to the tribal people.

The middle folding lines provide a little personal info. The year 3302 BC reflectively mirrors the year when the mission hopes to send back info, and is otherwise random, but there probably were tribal people on spiritual journeys there 5000 years ago, if they arrived on the continent 13,000-20,000 years ago as thought, and mentioned here in the last blog post.

The two images are taken from another MSN article about finding alien life this century. The top one has a POP (PinkyOrangePurple) look, as well as the yellow sun, while the bottom one is old-fashioned greenygrey in colour, with a modern design, and the alien doing a Y!

The above poem is like a more specific version of SAGAS (Solipsistic Astronaut Gravitates Agnostic Space), the opening poem of 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections and previously previewed on this site way back in 2012. It’s hard to believe I hadn’t met Quest then!

Stargazing Live GG Highlights: Northern Lights

There was great excitement in the Greenygrey world on Monday night while watching Stargazing Live on the BBC, because there was a possible sighting of a greenygrey in the U.K.

Greenygreys Love Nature

Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, satirical comedy science expert of the Greenygrey world in the style of Stephen Hawking in the human world.

As intrepid greenygreyologists know only too well, greenygreys love nature. This was epitomised by probably the best evidence yet, when a groupack of greenygreys were sighted in the Nepalese Himalayas.

Now, thanks to Stargazing Live, we have evidence of a greenygrey in the U.K. While the U.K. doesn’t have very high mountains like Nepal, it does have nice nature, and this lone greenygrey seems to be enjoying itself in nature at altitude.

Enceladus and the U.K.

You could see what a fertile land the U.K. could be for greenygreys when they compared it to Saturn’s moon Enceladus. Enceladus is also quite greenygrey, and it is thought there may be life there, but not big greenygreys; just greenygrey microbes.

Northern Lights Greenygrey Sky

Maybe that U.K. greenygrey was drawn out of its cover by the greenygrey Northern Lights seen live from Tromso, Norway, where our ol’ pal Marc Latham did his second marathon in 2007.

The greenygrey northern lights are even more spectacularly shown in this year’s Stargazing Live calendar:
