    Okay, you teens that are asking how would they calculate it. Well I am a teen too, but honostly, just from you guys asking that question it makes me think that your either younger the 13, or are idiots...

    AND BTW

    Are they talkinga bout Sirius A or Sirius B? And if Sirius A (wich I think it HAS to be with that kind of comparison) at wich time? Because today Sirius A (i beleive) is only 2 times larger then our sun, and it is a whtie dwarf not red.

    Oh poo. I just realized im talking about a difference star...-_-" Antares is awesome ><

    i dont think those scales are right. i just googled all that stuff and it all says that the big one would just barely be about the size of jupiters orbit. so id have to say that anteres would be just about the size of the biggest one in the bottom row of the last photo.

    Yeah than there wouldn`t be a sun...that`s cool
    *shakes head and sighs*

    About calculating sizes: they can measure the temperature and the luminosity of a star. For a given size, hotter implies brighter. A bright cool star must be realy big (red giant). A faint, hot star must be really small (white dwarf).
    If two stars have the same temperature but the luminosity of one is higher, this must means it`s surface is bigger.

    If the Earth were as big as Antares, then it would collapse in on it`s self under the titanic gravitational forces that it`s solid mass would create. It would become a black-hole very, very quickly.

    What would be cool would be living on a Dyson-Shpere - that is a huge hollow ball, which can be the size or Antares, if you wish, with a sun in the middle. You would live on the inside edge of the sphere, so the ground curves *up* towards the horrizon.

    ScrtNinja - I think what you read you misunderstood. If Antares was placed in position of our sun, it would be big enough to reach Jupiters orbit. That is pretty fckin massive, I`d say.

    And whats with all the immature insulting of anyone who knows anything? Go back to your sandpits, for christ sake.

    Thanx FallenSoul, but anyway RyanF701, why does putting logic into something make me wanna loose my fun of living?...
    I happen to think in a different way, more realistic. Maybe it is because I know what the consequences are of earth being so big, like fishyboy. I like to figure out why things are the way they are.
    You, on the other hand, seem to be oblivious to what goes on inside and outside our planet and apperently have no interest in finding out neither, you life in your "un-logical" world and you will die here aswell without having learned anything.
    Fine with me, but don`t insult me because I see things different.

    The earth isn`t THAT small, it depends on what you compare it too. If you first take a human, then a small mountain, then a bigger and so on, and then the earth at the end, it would seem like a very large thing (which it is). Just because there are much bigger things in the universe doesn`t mean anything. Just because a big house is smaller than the earth doesn`t mean it`s not big. So please shut the drat up. thanks.

    And also, none of this `makes you think`, the earth is important because life has evolved on it, not because it is some huge-ass superplanet with solar consuming powers, and so has it always been.

    For the sake of arguing:
    If the earth were as big as Antares its surface would be approximately 11.000.000.000 times bigger then it is now.
    It`s circunference would be 2.100.000.000 km in stead of it`s 40.000 km. now.

    It is so big, we can`t even image that, so why bother, right?

    Wow. Earth is like the little seven year old who is running around with his big brothers friends. Of course the little seven year old is also a child prodigy and the other are just bleh. Like Hansbo already said even though compared to some of the planets and stars we are considerably smaller we are (I know someone people won`t agree with this, but I think it is true) the only developed life forms out there. So Antares can be out there burning away while we sit here and play pong...ooh the technology.

    I can`t stand any more of this imagining if the Earth was the size of any star, never mind freaking big stars. Firstly a planet needs to orbit a star, preferably on the main sequence, to get the energy needed for life. Given that the Earth is made of more dense elements than stars this mega-Earth would end up with a greater mass than the star. I find it hard to imagine a stable orbit (btw it would be the star going around the planet due to the planet being more massive) so they would probably collide. Otherwise the mega-Earth would be so far away from the star that the energy it recieves would be too insignificant for life.

    OTH as far as i know Earth is the largest rocky planet we know about, all the large planets are gas giants. A gas giant that large would probably turn into a sun.

    If somehow you did make a Mega-Earth then the gravity would be so large that only midgets could live on it. Flying and rockets would be more difficult as they would have to overcome greater graviry. En

    I hate it when people say we`re the only form of life in the universe.

    Sure, we`re the only life we know about, if you look in the sky at night, a lot of the `stars` are actually galaxies, each with billions of stars and accordingly, billions of planets. Think about that. Billions of galaxies, with billions of planetary systems each, in a practically infinite universe. The laws of probability state that there must be some planet somewhere that has the right conditions for life aside from our own, even if we may never know about it.

    I think I might be the only person surprised by the sizes up Jupiter and Mars. I don`t think any of those mobiles in middle school did anything for me.

    "Okay, you teens that are asking how would they calculate it. Well I am a teen too, but honostly, just from you guys asking that question it makes me think that your either younger the 13, or are idiots..."
    first of all, just because were teenagers deosnt mean were stupid. if we dont know things, we ask. theres nothing wrong with that.
    and if youre so smart, why didnt you explain how they measure them? becasue you didnt know? or because your a prick? maybe both.
    "shut the drat up hansbo we are a tiny little planet that doesnt really matter"
    shut up, lefish, your just a tiny little stoner that nobody cares about.
    "omfg can you imagine the hours in a day that would be??? the time in a year?????"
    that wouldnt necisarilly be any different, we could still rotate the same and revolve around some crazy-huge star at the same rate

    "I hate it when people say we`re the only form of life in the universe. Sure, we`re the only life we know about, if you look in the sky at night, a lot of the `stars` are actually galaxies, each with billions of stars and accordingly, billions of planets. Think about that. Billions of galaxies, with billions of planetary systems each, in a practically infinite universe. The laws of probability state that there must be some planet somewhere that has the right conditions for life aside from our own, even if we may never know about it."
    i hate it when people disagree based on "probability". probability doesnt prove anything, it just prove that something is "probable". since there is no proof one way or another, you can only have beliefs in what is true or not, and its wrong to insult people because of them.

    I`m not insulting anyone about their beliefs, and I`m sorry if it seemed like I did.

    But being the only form of life in the universe is like being the only electron in a hollow cube a million miles across.

    Probability, like you said, is not a form of proof. But saying there is no other life in the universe is arguing with odds that are stacked trillions to one. Billions upon billions of planets and we`re the only ones alive?

    Right now, a bunch of aliens on some planet orbiting Antares are connected to an internet-like network where they insult others calling them names like "nerds" and "idiots", and they debate about each others philosophies on life and existence.

    Me? I`m on vacation this week. I`m not worrying about my place in the universe right now. We`ll all be dead soon anyways. Interesting link though.

    I found this pretty interesting...Earth is pretty small in comparison to the rest of the worlds/stars out there. This planet is pretty insignificant.
    And im saying that because our planet has no real effect on the others out there. We have intelligent life- woopty doo. Depends on your view of `intelligent`. We have technology- woopty doo. We`re coming up with new ways to destroy this planet...
    Anyhow...This is pretty cool. A while ago, i can`t remember when, I`ve heard that these scientists that sent out signals over this universe to try to find out how big it is finally got the signals back. They`re guessing that this universe is the shape of a football or soccer ball. That`s one thought that kinda creeps me out- our universe is not infinate. Wonder what`s on the outside?

    Actually i do know what i was talking about Sirius was in there. But the scales were off by a long shot, thats why i asked that question. But i realized i didnt mention Antares at all. So i suggest you stfu right now.

    A flight across antares wouldn`t take a few days... It would take at least 20 years at a current plane`s maximum speed. Think about it, If it is 2 times jupiter`s orbit across, and it takes probes going at least mach 33 (escape velocity) a few years to get there, how long would it take a plane going mach 5 to cross double that distance?

    for example: if you roll a die, theres only a 1 in 6 possibility that the result will be a one. (assuming theres no interference, and no diference in weight, ect) does that mean it cant be a one? no, its just unlikely.
    i know thats a little downscale... lets try this one. there was a link a little while ago (http://msnbc.msn.com/id/13838028/?GT1=8...
    the article said the odds of the woman having quadruplets without fertility drugs is 1 in 800,000. plus she had triplets, without fertility drugs, about 3 years before that, she had triplets, without fertility drugs. thats VERY unlikely, but it happened.
    the point is, dont belive/disbelieve something purely on chance.

    Hehe, this is like the total perspective vortex from the hitch hiker`s giude to the galaxy, it really makes you think that you`re insignificant.

    And on the topic of aliens, we cannot say that we are the only developed life out there, nor can we say that we aren`t. We just don`t have the data to do so. I mean how are we supposed to work out the probability of other developed life without knowing of other life, we could be the only ones, or we could be one of an infinite number of races. To develop life like us, we need a planet with not much more than our gravity, or the heart could not pump blood around easily (yes, this means that the smaller the planet, the bigger the lifeform can be). Also the magnetic field of the earth which is created by it`s constituents protects us from gamma radiation, and if that is constantly bombarding earth life like ours would not exist. And besides, the universe is so vast that it`s unlikely we`ll be able to get to other life as it`s just too far away

    That is stupid, the odds are more like you assuming you ARE going to win the lottery the next 3 weeks running just because its a possibility. You dont have just as much reason to assume improbable things, you have far far less reason, but still some reason.

    wow this is like the local science fair. and for the person who asked about where black holes go. your thinking of work holes (im dont know how the heck those things work but the suck things in one end and blow it back out the other) black holes are starts the explode and then all the dust and crap gets pulled together sucked into a really small ball like the size of a basket ball. so think about
    the really big star on the grid only compacted to the size of a basket ball. the gravity the is so much it sucks everything within like 500 miles into it. including light. (reason why its called a black hole)so they just get bigger and bigger and biggger
    untill one day were all just gonna get sucked up into one and get shrunk into paperclips.

    (im not a nerd there was a space thing on discovery in between myth busters. and future weapons)

    Why this fixation on size? Humans (and all life) evolved to take maximum advantage of their environment, dictated by the laws of physics. The reason we`re the size we are is because our size is perfect relative to our environment and in extension, Earth`s. Life as we know it can`t evolve on anything too far removed from Earth. Too large a planet and gravity will inhibit the reactions necessary to metabolize, too small planet and it can`t keep an atmosphere.

    To sum things up, we`re the perfect size for humans, and Earth is the perfect size for us.

    This post is amazing :) Makes me think of how enormous "just" one galaxy is.

    The comments are interesting.. How we need to feel "significant" and that size of a planet or intelligence how we know it(-> what we have) is the proof of significance...
    I mean, does it even really "matter" in the universe beyond earth, beyond our MIND?

    1) 100s of reasons? Well we would never have developed on a planet that big due to gravity...so long as all other characteristics of earth are the same. So that makes...one reason.

    2) Implosion of the planet? Doesn`t sound too likely.

    3) The planets would orbit it, not get sucked in. Has the sun sucked mercury in? No.

    But here`s a thinker...if a planet could actually get that big...then how big would the star that it`s orbiting be??

    Bekkl, on you comment on the pronounciation of Uranus, you are probably wrong. Mainly because the name Uranus come from the greek word Ouranos (pronounced: U (as in sh-OE) RA (as in RA-t) and NOS (as in NOS-tril), with the hyphen on the NOS, so logically you can pronounce it uRAnus, Uranus, or uranUs.

    Oh, and another etymology comment, Antares` name means Anti-Ares, or against ares. Good old Greek eh?

    That`s fricking awesome. I hate people who shoot down other people`s "What if"`s with logic. Yes, we know Antares is probably billions of degrees and the gravitational pull would kill us instantly. That`s not the point. We`re just trying to imagine the sheer distance around Antares. There`s a reason they call it "fantasies" because we know that it`s not possible, okay? And Earth is pretty important because it`s the only life we know of in the entire universe. Pretty important, no?

    to all the losers that wish earth were the size of antares- use your brains. anything that size would generate enough gravity to make our insides our outsides a split second.

    This post is amazing :) Makes me think of how enormous "just" one galaxy is.

    The comments are interesting.. How we need to feel "significant" and that size of a planet or intelligence how we know it(-> what we have) is the proof of significance...
    I mean, does it even really "matter" in the universe beyond earth, beyond our MIND?
