Post a big, big space and our place in it

All people have mixed feelings when a clear night gaze at the starry sky. All the problems of the common man begins to see the insignificant, and one begins to think about the meaning of their existence. The night sky seems huge, overwhelming, but in fact we can only consider the immediate vicinity.

Website has translated a post about how immense and amazing our universe.

This Earth. Here we zhivem.

And this is where we are in our solar sisteme.

The distance on the scale between the Earth and the Moon. It does not look too great, huh?

Though it is necessary to think again. Within this distance, you can place all the planets of our solar system, and beautiful akkuratno.

But the size of the Earth (well, six Earths) compared with Saturnom.

If our planet had rings like Saturn, they would have looked tak.

Between the two planets, comets tons. That's one of them looks like compared to Los Andzhelesom.

But that's nothing compared to our sun. Only vzglyanite.

And as we look to Marsa.

Peeping from behind the rings Saturna.

So, our planet looks from the edge of the solar sistemy.

Comparison of the scale of the Earth and the sun. Scary, right?

And the same sun from the surface Marsa.

But that's nothing. They say the stars in space more than the grains of sand on all the beaches Zemli.

And there are many more stars than our little sun. Just look at what it is tiny in comparison with the star in the constellation of the Big Psa.

But none of them can compare to the size of the galaxy. If you reduce the size of the Sun to the white blood cells and reduced in the same ratio Milky Way Galaxy, it will be the size of a SSHA.

The Milky Way is enormous. We are somewhere zdes.

But that's all we can videt.

However, even our galaxy - shorty compared to some others. Here Milky Way compared to IC 1011.

Just think about everything that could be in there.

Go ahead. In this image from the telescope "Hubble" thousands and thousands of galaxies, each containing millions of stars, each of them - with their planetami.

Just keep in mind - illustration of a very small part of the universe. A small part of the night neba.

And it can be assumed that there is a black hole. That's the size of a black hole compared to the Earth's orbit, just for ustrasheniya

So if you ever upset you missed your favorite TV shows ... just remember ... This is your dom

This is your home on the scale of the solar sistemy

And that's what happens when you reduce masshtab.

And then ...

... Continue

And a little more ...

It's almost ...

And here it is. That's all there is in the observable universe. And our place in it. Just a tiny ant in a giant banke
