One can tolerate feeling insignificant for only so long.
Probably an astronomy show.
I’m getting a horrible slingshot effect.
I wonder how Calvin’ knowledge don’t work for Math at school .
Well for me, it’s “Jeopardy!”
Alone in the whole universe!!
Like dust in the wind . . . Dude!
“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small, unregarded, yellow sun."D. A.
The stars of this show are better than the stars of that show
Just think, there are easily more stars in the Universe than there are grains of sand on all of the beaches in the world. For real…
Enough of imponderables. Let’s get back to the concrete.
We’re not on the edge; we are here: https://apod.nasa.gov/debate/2020/Tarter100th/Slide11.JPG
(Give or take a few dozen light-years.)
And we have the attention span of a microbe. :D
Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, fantastic show….
Is Calvin channeling Carl Sagan?
Now, I wonder what’s on TV.
Either Calvin can read his watch by starlight, in which case his night vision is better than that of Hobbes….OR….his watch uses radioactive paint, in which case he may want to sue his parents in 50 years.
After blowing his own mind, Calvin decides he needs to junk it up again.
A right-wristed watch wearer. It just figures.
Cosmos, maybe, but I doubt they’ll watch it.
Cosmic wonder only goes so far when you’re six.
Do you believe there are other forms of life in the vast universe who are far more intelligent than we are? I do, and I believe the reason the haven’t invaded Earth is because they know it isn’t worth the effort.
A microcosm of greed and vanity attempting to spread itself to the greater macrocosm – and succeeding at a rapidly expanding rate.
And yet he fails his classes.
More subatomic particles.
Way too spoil a moment, Calvin.
You can continue watching the stars, one way or the other, Cal.
My favorite panel in the entire strip has Calvin, after yet another one of his usual disappointments/disillusionments, spending the entire night ranting & railing against the entire universe.
Yoooouuuu wascally wabbit!
Discoveries that have no application are functionally the same as superstitions that have no application.
Dang that kids articulate!
I’m sure you’re missing something important!
Go watch Mork and Mindy, Calvin.
What’s on TV? Spaceman Spiff, of course.
Star Trek reruns.
At least there weren’t any stupid reality shows then.
For a 6 year old, Calvin has an impressive vocabulary.
Side note: I just LOVE looking up at the stars. But then, who doesn’t?
Yup, the vastness of space and our place in it makes my brain hurt even trying to think about it. I’d usually just want to watch cartoons.
Don’t bother about the idiot box. You are way ahead of information aired.
Ok, NO ONE TOLD ME CALVIN WAS A GENIUS!!!
Best ever. Calvin putting the Universe in its place.
Probably a Carl Sagan repeat on PBS…He made Billions and Billions of shows for them…
Clearly not living in a city.
Calvin just wants to watch a good show, because he likes the stars.
