“Chaos is order yet to be deciphered.”

"

If they [Lawrence Krauss, Stephen Hawking and Neil deGrasse Tyson] really believe this [that philosophy is a waste of time] they should stop indulging in low-grade philosophy in their own writings. You cannot do physics or cosmology without an assumed philosophical basis. You can choose not to think about that basis: it will still be there as an unexamined foundation of what you do. The fact you are unwilling to examine the philosophical foundations of what you do does not mean those foundations are not there; it just means they are unexamined.

Actually philosophical speculations have led to a great deal of good science. Einstein’s musings on Mach’s principle played a key role in developing general relativity. Einstein’s debate with Bohr and the EPR paper have led to a great deal of good physics testing the foundations of quantum physics. My own examination of the Copernican principle in cosmology has led to exploration of some great observational tests of spatial homogeneity that have turned an untested philosophical assumption into a testable—and indeed tested—scientific hypothesis. That’s good science.

"The Orbit Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO2) is Nasa’s first Earth-orbiting satellite dedicated to studying atmospheric carbon dioxide from space.
In 2013, concentrations of carbon in the atmosphere surpassed 400 parts per million for the first time in human history.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide is at its highest level in human history and is changing our climate before our eyes. NASA’s new Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 space satellite will probe the carbon cycle like never before, telling us where the carbon is going and giving us clues as to where we will end up.”
