It was thought at one time by many that science would do away with poetry – that it was the enemy of the imagination. We know now that is not true. We know that science goes hand in hand with imagination. We know that it is in the highest degree poetic and that the old ideas once considered so beautiful are flat and stale. Compare Kepler’s laws with the old Greek idea that the planets were boosted or pushed by angels. The more we know, the more beauty, the more poetry we find.
