26 PICTURES WILL MAKE YOU RE-EVALUATE YOUR ENTIRE EXISTENCE

Recommended Posts

Always good to be reminded of our insignificance.

Just a shame we don't look after our little jewel a bit better ...

Yah, it's all  just a big  load of senseless jostling atoms, electrons quarks and the rest.

WE can THINK. :grin:  

That's not too insignificant is it?

No, it's not, Viewmaster.

But if you look around you on the little speck we live on and think about what we've done, and are doing, to it - what are we thinking about?!

Yeh I'm not entirely convinced by 21 but the rest looks good.

It does depend on how dark your skies are and how good your eyesight is.

I assume it means that's the furthest you can resolve a single star with the naked eye otherwise M31 would immediately discount it.

No really, a lot of it is pretty old hat, yes we live on a small planet and there are lots of big things out there.

Big distances means we need to develop some decent engines or propulsion systems.

There 2 pictures of the milky way, both different.

Nothing there is going to give me cause to re-evaluate anything.

With the exception of perhaps getting a bigger scope, might like to see some of them better.

I've seen most of these before but they work well collected together like that.

I like to think we are significant to ourselves and each other, just not to the other 99.99999...99999% of the universe.
