I know that space is huge, conceptually. But, it is really hard to see just how massive HUGE can get. Most people haven't trained themselves to think on the planetary scale, let alone anything larger. However, we are highly visual as a species and so I give you this video. To show, not tell. (Please forgive the goofy music.)
Feel tiny? I do. Until I think that every atom in my body came from the death of one of those stars. Ladies and gentlemen, we are part of that grandness. Don't forget it.
Now go do something productive like writing. 🙂Tags: Thursday's Thoughts
