Program Note

Everything is in motion - all of the time - from subatomic-sized particles to immense galactic structures. Think about the motion of planets; objects this enormous and bulky move so sluggishly through the void of space. Then remember they are actually racing by at tens of thousands of kilometers per hour. Tiny particles of energy go by at the fastest imaginable speeds, but what a long time it takes them to travel just from the neighboring galaxy. How swiftly we dawdle through an infinite space.
