How Big?

[ Edited ]

Douglas Adams described the planet Earth as an utterly insignificant little blue green planet orbiting a small unregarded yellow sun ... at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles.

 

 

I still think just how tiny our planet really is in comparison the the other planets in our own planetary system, let alone when compared to some of the other celestial bodies that astronomers can clearly see... Horrified

And we send craft out into the void, heading to Mars, to Jupiter and beyond... Fear
