Amazingly, NASA landed a pod on top of a comet moving at 84,000 MPH. This feat not only took outstanding concentration, science, and precision but also the amount of data we will learn about the universe from this comet may revolutionize our understanding of the world and universe we live in.
The universe is, of course, everywhere. Even our bodies are made up of the same stuff as stars. Being “Star stuff” doesn't mean we aren’t prone to pain every once in a while. This is why over the course of human history, we have developed medical disciplines to help people relieve the body’s pains and injuries.
