As the universe is so unimaginably enormous, it can sometimes feel as though you are not getting the attention that you feel you deserve. So, in the meantime, Let’s investigate how earthlings can bridge that gap, and make friends with the universe.

Congratulations to February’s winners who each receive a dozen anti-matter particles, which will be sent immediately to your letterbox. The winning entries are;

  • ‘My mother used to say to me that I should always wear clean underwear just in case I was ever hit by a bus. I since realise, that better advice would have been – always look both ways before crossing a road.’ – by Captain Zap; Space Renegade, as provided by Lynda Di Dopro
  • ‘Don’t second guess yourself! Unless, of course, you decide another decision might be better.–by President Electron of the United States of Andromeda as provided by Donald Pidory
