Because, after the room gets empty of guests, after all the champagne and cake is gone, after the cheering echo turns again into silence... there is a bunch of people staying behind. A bunch of really daring pioneers, dedicated to making mankind wiser and keeping its dreams and aspirations alive. This is a post for you, great people of ESA - European Space Agency at #ESOC.
Thank you for letting us into your glorious, exciting, yet demanding world. Tomorrow morning, walking to your offices, please know you have our gratitude.
And you know what? Part of us will always be there with you. For we shared a night full of the most deep, sincere and original feelings human beings can experience. Thrill of exploration, admiration of what team work can achieve, and that magic sense present only when people get close, holding their hearts open to wonder.
You gave us an extraordinary memory to cherish, new bonds of friendship and collaboration to share- and a valuable message to spread: Our miraculous planet can be observed, can be re-discovered, can be admired. But it cannot be taken for granted.
Dear #Sentinerds: To every and each one of you present at that moment of thrill and joy, THANK YOU. Please, keep your creative, unique, dreamy spirits alive! Hoping we'll get to meet again...
