Sometimes I just sit back and wonder kwani how big is this thing. Do you know that there are some distant stars whose light has never arrived on earth since they got formed billions of years ago, that light has been traveling 300,000m/s. In our home galaxy it's estimated to contain 400billion stars, there are billions upon billions of galaxies each containing billions of stars. Our entire solar system is like a grain of sand yet we can't even travel to mars

If our Solar System were small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, the entire Milky Way galaxy would be the size of North America. @googlefactss #space

hope you have an idea now

The carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen atoms that make you up are pretty old. They just keep being recycled, some millennium ago they were used in a dinosaur then it died and fungi an bacteria broke it down and they got consumed by a tree, back and forth until it's you today that have them

In the physical realm, I think that is very true. I am not sure. But probably in another phase of existence, the universe is probably the size of an atom!

The adversity of the universe is mind-blowing even for the little human mind to comprehend..

NASA took to their telescopes and time with space shuttles to try and look whats far beyond the stars. They discovered that light takes 10,000 years to travel from one end of the milk way galaxy to the other. Confused by that, they zoomed further and notice distant patterns of stars, some gathered some dispersed, some moving. Upon cleared view they saw millions and millions of galaxies ..

They got brain hummed folded their research and told the world that space is infinite. And its growing wider by the day.

I just question why would humans mean so alot to the creator with such other vast creations of interterrestrial life forms probably out there less sinful than mankind.

I think the reason we 'die' to move from here to some other planet elsewhere. Not possible to do that in the physical bodies, so the soul/ spirit that is YOU is separated from the body so that you can go to another planet VERY far away outside the physical realm that we know. The speed of this translation from here to there is at the speed of thought. I believe that is where all other previously living things reside and are possibly given a new body. And the time we live on this earth is extremely short., around 100 years for a few is very very short time. And when we go to the other translated living beings realm, the time between the first person/ being and the newcomers is relatively short like the new comer was just on the queue a few seconds ago. The theory of relativity and so on can be discussed with this in mind. That is my belief.
