"You know, maybe aliens know all this, and we’re come-latelies to the whole comprehending-everything thing, but there isn’t really any more you can do in our current Universe than this. It’s the top thing. It is everything. This makes us amazing." James has basically said everything about our trip to CERN that is worth saying. This is all true. It was great and humbling. I'd also point out that every time you step out, you're under the Alps, and they're also phenomenal and humbling.

A Whole Lotta Nothing: Holy shitballs
"The morning light was great, the surface was still and there were great reflections and the deep blue water was a deep blue unlike anything I'd seen before. I was in awe. I still am. Sometimes nature is so incredible you left with nothing to say but "Holy shitballs"." Strong truth.

YouTube - STS-124 Launch w/ Sound
Video from the side of a solidrocket booster from a shuttle launch - through launch, into the atmosphere, separation, and back down to splashdown. Incredible; hypnotic; magical to think that we made that.
