But alas, these amazing fantasies were but a dream. I especially love the thought that planets would just go on infinitely beyond Pluto. If only it were so damn cold out that’a way! Wouldn’t it be fabulous if there were a counter earth on the direct opposite side of our orbit? That would, sadly, probably be our best hope for finding life in the solar system. I suppose Voyager, Galileo, and the hundreds of other space vessels we’ve sent out there debunked that long ago. It’s heart-breaking. Childhood’s end, if ever I saw it.
