Life, The Universe, And Everything

It’s really rather amazing how small the earth is in comparison to the gas giants of our solar system. It’s even more amazing how small the gas giants are to other celestial objects.

This website offers a chart explaining the size differences.

Now just think for a second. Some of those stars like Antares are mind boggling giant. Yet they aren’t much brighter to our eyes than most the other stars in the sky. Think about that. Try to grasp how far away those stars would have to be to give off the same amount of light as the rest in the universe.

It’s amazing.
