The Scale of the Universe

I do not normally perpetuate chain messages via e-mail, but this one is well done and worth reading, so I decided to share it here.

Now, THIS is really fascinating –
it’s rather dazzling to see it presented this way.

I CERTAINLY THOUGHT THIS WAS ENLIGHTENING. BEYOND OUR SUN … IT’S A BIG UNIVERSE.
ANTARES IS THE 15TH BRIGHTEST STAR IN THE SKY.
IT IS MORE THAN 1000 LIGHT YEARS AWAY.

NOW HOW BIG ARE YOU?

NOW TRY TO WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND THIS………

THIS IS A HUBBLE TELESCOPE ULTRA DEEP FIELD INFRARED VIEW OF COUNTLESS
“ENTIRE” GALAXIES BILLIONS OF LIGHT-YEARS AWAY.


Humbling, Isn’t it?
