The common understanding of physics, the universe, space travel and telescopes is not good. For people like us, there are pictures that illustrate how minuscule our world is compared to the vastness of infinite possibilites. Thanks to technology today, pictures like the ones below explain things in a way that even the most watered down Neil deGrasse Tyson Quote can be proud of. Again, thank you internet gods for bestowing mind-blowing information effectively to the common folk. So let’s begin by checking out the true size of our world.
Earth is just about the same size as Venus.
Neptune and Uranus are much bigger (insert “your anus” jokes here).
Jupiter and Saturn say hello.
No wonder this keeps us warm. The Sun is giant. It is almost perfectly spherical and consists of hot plasma interwoven with magnetic fields.
Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. With a visual apparent magnitude of −1.46, it is almost twice as bright as Canopus, the next brightest star.
Pollux is a star in the northern constellation of Gemini, the Twins. Pollux is the brightest star in the constellation. The distance away from Earth is measured at a distance of about 33.78 light-years (10.36 parsecs).
Arcturus of the constellation Boötes is the brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere. It is the fourth brightest star in the night sky
Rigel is the brightest star in the constellation Orion and the seventh brightest star in the night sky. Aldebaran is an orange giant star located about 65 light years away in the zodiac constellation of Taurus, its brightest star.
Our Sun is now barely visible.
This exercise is a reality check for those moments when thoughts are streaming about frustrations, anger, disappointment, drama or worry of any kind. Think of the size and scope of everything you just saw and know that there is much more in this world to explore. More thoughts to be had. More experience to participate with. The doors that open to a new world are symbolic of the human mind, which fights to limit the thought process to create a productive organism.
As such, it is imperative that time is taken once in awhile to look up, focus on the Skype and tell the mind that ‘NO’, there is actually more to this world than the route to work, the trash to be thrown away and the new dress that is 50% off. There is so much more that it requires the simplified down nature of articles like this to accurately explain as much to the masses.
