I agree. It’s definitely better for the human race and the day to day goings on in the world if the vast majority of people were unaware of what goes on in the heavens above. I’m well aware that space is not an empty vast and cold void . It is in fact a very dangerous place with hundreds, even thousands of chunks of iron and big dirty snowballs(comets) from the size of a grain of rice to the size of Mt. Everest zipping around all over the place, anyone number of which comes close to smashing into our little speck of dust and water and someday, sooner or later is going to plow into us and that’ll be the end of Earth. Or we’re incinerated by the intense gamma ray radiation from a gigantic star going super nova or being swallowed by a Black Hole. That in itself will be catastrophic but what would be far worse is how five and a half billion humans will react when they realize theres only a few months or weeks left to live.
