[8/10] Moments - Charles Darwin visits the Galapagos Islands 
After Charles Darwin graduated in 1831, his professor of botany recommended him to the Admiralty for the position of unpaid ship’s naturalist on board HMS Beagle as it made a five-year surveying voyage around the world. The Beagle took Darwin around the coasts of South America, across the Pacific to the Antipodes, then on to South Africa, before returning to England. The experience opened his eyes to the wondrous variety of life forms around the planet - and the differences and similarities between them.
By the time Darwin reached the Galapagos Islands, a remote archipelago off the west coast of South America, his mind was open to new ways of thinking about the natural world. He had already noticed how the rheas - the large flightless birds of the South American pampas - looked like the ostriches of Africa, and yet were clearly different species. In the Galapagos he collected specimens of finches from the different islands, which were similar to each other yet also subtly different. Back home, closer study made it clear that the finches from the different islands were actually different species. Darwin realized they must all have had a common ancestor, but over time they had undergone a process of transmutation. [x]

Are you going to age with grace?
Are you going to age without mistakes?
Are you going to age with grace,
Or only to wake and hide your face?

When oblivion is calling out your name,
You always take it further than I ever can.

O that I were a mockery king of snow,

Standing before the sun of Bolingbroke,

To melt myself away in water-drops!
