Space is pretty cool. Many people can recall dreams of being an astronaut when they were growing up—exploring distant planets and wearing a funny suit with a fishbowl for a hat. As they got older, most lost the desire due to the impracticability of such aspirations. Work, bills, family, and life in general took the front seat. Looking up at the sky at night, I think we all wonder about the rest of the universe from time to time. What’s going on out there?
India If a man told you that he dreamt about a hidden pile of gold, would you go search for it? Well, the Indian government would. Hindu village sage Yogi Swami Shobhan Sarkar says he dreamt that 1,000 tons of gold was buried under a ruined palace. He wrote the central bank describing his dream, and the state Archaeological Survey of India sent a team of archaeologists. Swami Sarkar worries for his country’s future with the current economic crisis and wishes for the government to use the money to help it recover.
