I adore astronomy as it provides these beautiful images of unfathomable things. Such as the birth of a star that shoots out a gas cloud that is longer that our galaxy. There is just something about realizing that my brain cannot comprehend an object or idea that I find incredibly alluring. It is exciting to run into the current limit of human understanding and then hoping to be alive when we figure out the answer.
Do a Google image search of Earthrise. Then search for Pale Blue Dot. Those two things are some of the most awe inspiring and staggering images I have seen in my life.
Basically, you should be into astronomy.
In my opinion, being able to laugh at just about everything is an incredibly important talent. Life is pretty damn funny when you think about, and I find that humor whenever possible.
