This is literally the coolest thing I have seen in awhile (besides learning that Voyager 1 has left the solar system bubble.) I am not sure how long this has been out here, but after spending 30 minutes on it, I figured I would share its awesomeness.

Two of my cousins sent me that link on the same day last March. They swear it was pure coincidence, but I know there is no such thing. (8{b

It's bookmarked on both my G4s, but I am still migrating favorites to the P4. One less to worry about losing. Thanks much.

Where do we fit in? We assume ourselves to be an intelligent species, still we are living on a small planet. Just because we have air and water we are able to survive and thrive.

And not let us forget the size of space itself.


I spend many of nights trying to sleep wondering this very thing.
