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.

Guess I happen to know that the heaven is full of stars.

Anything smaller and you call it a planet.

If it is not a planet, then it is a moon or perhaps an asteroid.

Asia is not even a moon or an asteroid, because it is a continent which is supposed to be flat because it is a landmass being part of a planet which is round in shape. Objects having a certain density in the end take that shape because it suits the gravitational forces best. We get a curve by means of three dimensions in space.

If you think that the heavens has even more to offer, why not look for objects like the Orion Nebula? Still, the Oort Cloud which is the outermost region of the solar system, is visible in the same picture.

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.
