Sea of Stars
Who has not been to sea for any length of time without marveling at the wonders of the night sky that have guided mariners for millennia? This photo by Vessel Operations and Technology major Nathaniel Souza ’21, shot last summer at Sand Beach in Acadia National Park, is an apt winner of the 2017 MMA Photo Contest.
“The photo,” he says, “makes me think of a quote from Carl Sagan: ‘We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.’”
