In the meantime--
Hunting the Edge of Space-- The Ever-expanding universe. On PBS, fall asleep to a new program about telescopes and the Universe -- as often as you can! My dreams were really spectacular.
Awesome science, photos, idea. See them HERE   (see the Hubble Deep Field!)

NOVA The Elegant Universe series:

Also, I heard today that scientists were Certain that the God Particle-- binding everything together-- exists: started small but now everyone is talking about it!

Higgs Boson: Physicists See Best Proof Yet of 'The God Particle'  more HERE
"...After decades of careful experiment, physicists say they have found the 'strongest indication to date' to prove the existence of the Higgs boson -- a subatomic particle so important to the understanding of space, time and matter that the physicist Leon Lederman nicknamed it 'the God particle.'
The announcement today ...comes just before a major meeting this week in Australia, where more findings will be announced from the giant underground particle accelerator at CERN, the great physics lab in the Alps on the French-Swiss border.
''This is one of the cornerstones of how we understand the universe,' said Rob Roser, a Fermilab physicist, 'and if it's not there, we have to go back and check our assumptions about how the universe exists'..."
