Space is pretty damn fascinating. I'd gladly become an astronaut if I had the smarts.1

Its big. If the earth was a half penny, the sun would be an 18 foot high football next to it. If the solar system was a half penny you wouldn't be able to see the sun with a high powered microscope. If the whole solar system was a half penny the nearest star would be the length of continental Europe away. Thats only 4 and a half light years. The pillars of creation are over 4000 light years tall. Light travels at 350000 miles a second and it takes light going at that speed 4 and a half years just to reach the nearest star. So for a 4 and a half year journey in a spaceship to it you'd have to travel almost 50'000 billion miles. Thats only a tiny fraction of one of the spiral arms that make up the milky way and the milky way is just one galaxy in billions racing away from some hub where the big bang expanded the universe 14 billion years ago. Its so big the light at the edge of the visible universe has just reached us now to reveal whats out there. Over 14 billion years travelling at light speed. So the visible universe is nearly 30 billion light years in diameter. Nobody knows how far it goes. Problem is the light reaching us now shows the universe over 14 billion years ago. Who knows what it looks at present. Just looking up at the stars at night is looking millions perhaps billions of years into the past depending on what your looking at. Some of this may be a little bit off coz its just my memory im using. Google it.1
