I live in Guildford and we all know that quote!
Same here. I actually got anxiety just looking at the pictures.
Good to know there`s at least one more person keeping DNA alive.
dance people! :)
Indeed he was. After the Great Collapsing Hrung Disaster on Betelgeuse Seven, Ford Prefect`s father (the sole survivor) moved to Betelgeuse Five, where he both fathered and uncled Ford. He named Ford in the ancient language of Betelgeuse Seven, and eventually died of shame (still a terminal disease in some parts of the galaxy) because Ford never learned to pronounce his original name.
wasn`t Ford Prefect from somewhere near the vicinity of Betelgeuse?
The Total Perspective Vortex. I was thinking the same thing.
How does THAT work?"
Umm...it might because we don`t know everything. Just because something defies our understanding of how it exists doesn`t mean that it can`t exist...it just means that our understanding of things is flawed.
The galaxy we observed defies physics theories?
How does THAT work?
13 Billion years old, would you say?
And Lionhart, I hear ya. I took a photo of your ex last Christmas, and it`s still printing...
That is one frightening machine.
Kinda sucks not even being able to comprehend if there`s even an end XD
On a more serious note: That`s freakin` amazing O.O
Its also obsolete. We`ve got better telescopes in space now.
at least this one blew my mind.
In Wakko`s song, Its a great big universe. We actually already knew that we were insignificant specks compared to everything else
And aren`t we nearly galaxies ourselves? Look at your hand in front of you, think of the myriad cells that form it, blood and nerve and bone, the pieces that make up those cells, the proteins that form them, then atoms, and so on...
Putting the size in perspective
If the Earth were to be represented by a sphere one centimeter in diameter, the Sun would be represented as a sphere with a diameter of 109 centimeters, at a distance of 117 meters. At these scales, VY Canis Majoris would have a diameter of approximately 2.3 kilometers, assuming the upper limit estimate of the radius of VY Canis Majoris.
DAYUM NATURE...YOU SCARY!
Just remember that you`re standing on a planet that`s evolving, and revolving at.....
It would only be a waste if the only reason they took the picture was so people could ooh and ahh over it, then forget it. Fortunately, scientists are getting a lot more out of it than the average IAB user is.
I`ll be here all week...
What makes us special? Consciousness and the ability to attain higher forms of it. Clearly it is rare. It`s funny to think that, of the billions of germs that reside on your screen right now, in the end you are equal to one of them, and at the same time you are equal to a universe, all because of consciousness.
And have you ever considered that our whole universe may just be an electron on an atom in some bigger world? Freaky stuff
Somebody just Watched Men In Black I think. LOL
But naw you are r
