Found this on Stumble. It's pretty amazing even if you're not keen on astronomy. Smile

Isn't it lucky we found this teeny tiny little place to live! (we could so easily have missed it Smile )

Mind blowing indeed!
After the first shock of seeing our 'tiny' earth against the sun, it just gets more amazing when you compare our 'tiny' sun, against the giant stars: then it really starts to boggle the mind but helps us to understand the relevance of talking in light years when talking about the cosmos. My mind threatens to explode when I think of the vastness of the dark space around all these huge orbs.

That kind of stuff just makes my head reel when I try and comprehend the size of the known universe let alone the size of the unknown one.

I know it's a truism and a cliche and everything else but thinking about how insignificant we really are and how tiny our planet is does put so much into perspective. Very humbling.

Feeling great - here we are some clever little, very unlikely, animals who can do this - and even given that the conditions of life may be vanishing small when you see this you realise that we are probably not alone - and that is great too. Our smallness is in part the answer to Fermi's Paradox.

On a more frivolous note it puts me in mind of one of the Men in Black movies where it transpires that the world is housed in a locker on another world - if that makes sense!

I so wish Star Trek was real life and we really could explore out there!

I guess even fleas have smaller fleas feeding upon them.

Thought for the day:

"Even we will probably be eaten by worms eventually". Smile

Well, it's better than us eating the worms! Smile
