Humbling Comparison

  1. i hope this turned out alright - i received this in an e-mail and just wanted to share.....

    now, this is really fascinating - i've never really given this any thought whatsoever,

    but it's rather dazzling to see it presented this way.

    i certainly thought this was enlightening. didn't even realize we knew much 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.[color=#660000][color=#660000]


    the universe is so vast it is not comprehensible by the human mind. it would be like an ant trying to understand the wonder of the internet. it can't be done. [color=#660000][color=#660000]

    the universe humbles us as it should.

    Evidently the pics didn't show up - it was a comparison of the earth and the planets according to size. Then it compared the planets to the sun, and to various stars. It was really quite amazing... too bad I'm too much of a ding-a-ling to figure out how to copy them over!!

    Hi Thumper,

    I can't see them pics in your post.
    But I think I know what it's about.

    Is it related to this thread?
