Have you ever wondered where is our little Earth compared to the rest of the universe? How small are we next to the other planets and stars? Where does the Milky Way fit inside the vast cosmic pool of dust, gas and energy?

Watch this youtube video just to get an idea ;)

Many times I think about this, and I almost always find myself imagining and so amazed and shocked that we are so small comparatively AND WHAT I AM IMAGINING IS STILL FAR FROM ACCURATE but still we intelligent enough to think about and to understand the universe. That moment is priceless. It's the best part of my day.
