1. This is where we all live, our Earth.
2. This the solar system, our “neighborhood”.
3. This is the scaled distance between Earth and Moon. You thought the moon was farther?
4. What if I told you that between Earth and moon you could fit every planet of our solar system?
5. If you still don’t have a measure of how tiny we are, here is North America compared to Jupiter.
6. You could line up SIX Earths on the Saturn’s rings.
7. This is a comet, compared to Los Angeles. Big, isn’t it?
8. If that was big, here is the sun, and we are that tiny little point down there.
9. And here is how we look like from the moon.
10. And from Mars.
11. Did you know that there are more stars in space than there are grains of sand on every beach on Earth?
12. The Milky Way is enormous. Here is where we are inside it.
13. It’s mind blowing to think that all the stars we can see to the naked eye at night are just part of this yellow circle.
14. But don’t you ever think the Milky Way is the biggest galaxy in space. Here it is compared to Ic 1011!
15. This is a picture taken from the Hubble telescope. In just this space there are millions of galaxies, each and everyone of them containing million of stars, each with planets orbiting around them.
16. Keep in mind that every single inch of your vision of the night sky contains billions of galaxies, stars, planets.
17. But it’s not all roses out there. Here is a black hole compared to our orbit. A black hole is a region of spacetime where gravity is so strong that no particle or light ray entering that region can ever escape from it.
NOW SPARE SOME TIME AND THEN CONTEMPLATE
HOW MAGNIFICENT AND POWERFUL COULD BE THE
CREATOR OF THIS MARVELOUS UNIVERSE !
