We all know that answers have worth. Questions do too, though.
A big part of being a successful human, and scientist, is being able to assess the value of both.
After doing some practice you will surely think that yoga is making you a fill in the blank person. If you don’t think it, then you will read it. If you don’t read it then someone will tell you it. That is OK.
Just know that it isn’t making into anything!
Rather, it is helping you return to that which you already are.

The Pioneer plaques are a pair of gold-anodized aluminium plaques which were placed on board the 1972 Pioneer 10 and 1973 Pioneer 11 spacecraft, featuring a pictorial message, in case either Pioneer 10 or 11 are intercepted by extraterrestrial life. The plaques show the nude figures of a human male and female along with several symbols that are designed to provide information about the origin of the spacecraft.
The Pioneer spacecraft were the first human-built objects to leave the Solar System.

GSL Shell is an interactive interface that gives access to the GSL numerical routines by using Lua, an easy to learn and powerful programming language. With GSL Shell you can access very easily the functions provided by the GSL library without the need of writing and compile a stand-alone C application. In addition the power and expressivity of the Lua language make easy to develop and tests complex procedures to treat your data and use effectively the GSL routines. You will be also able to create plot in real-time by using the powerful builtin graphical module.
GSL Shell is still a young project and it is currently not widely used. It still lacks some important features but we believe that it is very promising because it is built on top of three outstanding free software libraries: the GSL library, Lua and the AGG library. By using and combining together these software components GSL Shell gives the opportunity of doing advanced numerical calculations and produce beautiful plot of the data or mathematical functions.

Like Mike said, looks like a nice complement to Octave or MATLAB.
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) is one of the most ambitious and influential surveys in the history of astronomy. Over eight years of operations (SDSS-I, 2000-2005; SDSS-II, 2005-2008), it obtained deep, multi-color images covering more than a quarter of the sky and created 3-dimensional maps containing more than 930,000 galaxies and more than 120,000 quasars.
It is hard not to dream about exploring space when you see what Sloan has to offer.
Imagine that you’ve learned a new language that allows you to see things in a way that you’ve never before been able to conceive. Imagine the new kinds of questions that you can now ask which you could not before! It is an amazing feeling.
Mathematics is invigorating, inspiring, and fun.
