"Apart from plain illustration purposes, flashcards can be used to support memorization by way of spaced repetition. A method to achieve this was proposed by the German science popularizer Sebastian Leitner in the 1970s. In his method, known as the Leitner system, flashcards are sorted into groups according to how well you know each one. This is how it works: you try to recall the solution written on a flashcard. If you succeed, you send the card to the next group. But if you fail, you send it back to the first group." (Wikipedia)
Why do super-novas getour hearts beating a little faster?
It is because they representsomething larger than our little selves,
Something beyond the ordinaryand outside of the mundane,
Something grand andspectacular and incomprehensible.
The stars stretch the fabricof time and tug at the elastic of our imaginations;
They challenge us to reachout and touch new worlds;
