Re: The Mighty Stars

Wow, that is a pretty cool video. It's awesome how something looks huge compared to others, then it just keeps getting smaller until it's off the screen. I never realized how big some things out there really are.

Wow. I'm at a loss for words. That really puts a damper on our feeling of importance, huh?

Hard to fit it in the mind. And you see how big our Star (sun) is to us, then you see it as a SPECK next to the Larger Stars...then you think of how much space is in between all these stars that are so large. That's when you s tart to realize how much SPACE is really in Space.

Poor Pluto. First, it was removed from being a planet, and now it's being compared to stars that just plain huge. Too bad that stars are not the biggest thing in the universe...

Re: The Mighty Stars

I know that this planet is small, but DAMN I didn't know we were THAT small! O__o;;
I don't know ANY of those other....stars or whatever after the sun.

Re: The Mighty Stars

Can anyone imagine trying to live on one of those stars? XD

Re: The Mighty Stars

The universe always has, and always will fascinate me. And who the hell are we to declassify Pluto as a planet? Screw scientists! It's a planet in my heart.

Re: The Mighty Stars

The size difference between our sun, and that monster VV Cephei, is incredible. I pulled up this picture showing a size comparison;



Ours would be that small dot in the top right corner.

Re: The Mighty Stars

If we found a way to live on stars, overpopulation would never be a problem! O__O

Re: The Mighty Stars

I've actually been studying this type of thing in my freetime for quite a while now. Space truly is a fascinating thing. It can be very surprising at first just how big things in space are. So big, in fact, that theoretically the mind cannot comprehend it.

I wonder if this is in much the same way that I cannot comprehend what it is to starve for a week. Something I find could easily be an incomprehensibly strong feeling is obviously felt and understood by someone out there. So basically I've wondered for a while if the astronomical numbers associated with space can be understood, and we just don't know how to go about doing it at this point.

For the record, the thing that got me interested in space was Douglas Adams's writing, though obviously I don't in the slightest expect space to be anything like what he depicts.

Re: The Mighty Stars

Wow, you guys haven't seen Carl Sagans' "The Pale Blue Dot" ?

Pale Blue Dot.

Quote:
Originally Posted by Carl Sagan
"We succeeded in taking that picture [from deep space], and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.

The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."
