I'm in awe looking at the high-res pic of that. The sheer amount of galaxies in that picture alone makes me realize how small and insignificant our planet is in comparison to the vastness of space.
I'm not even sure what I'm looking at.
This gave me the idea for a dark matter powered cloaking device. :O
I wouldn't say the Earth is insignificant compared to the rest of the universe. More like part of a larger whole.
And thanks for the article, I like reading this kind of news.
That's too cool
No joke. It's difficult to comprehend the full scale of it. We're just a tiny speck in one galaxy out of billions. I wish there were a way to know what else was out there.
Are there lone stars bopping around out there that aren't in galaxies? I ask because of the giant red things in the pic.
Eh, don't let it get you down. It may be an insignificant part of thw whole, but Earth is significant to us, and that's what's important.
those ones are stars in our galaxy, they seem large because they are closer
but in other words, yes there probably are stars that are not in galaxies at all.
I wouldn't say it gets me down - in fact, quite the opposite. I'm amazed at the vastness of the universe around us. I'm awed at the size and wonder of it, at the possibilities that are out there. I find it hard to understand how someone can look at a photo like that, with giant galaxies littered everywhere, and really believe that we're alone.
