Now I feel very, very small.

But, but, we are the only planet that has life.

That's what I heard in church when I was little.

They should have included Sunset on Mars taken by Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in May of 2005. Great photos though.

After seing this picture, I thought of Douglas Adams's quote:

"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space."

Honestly, that picture shows about 3,000 galaxies. That's pretty farking impressive.

Hubble Ultra Deep Field:

The Hubble Deep Field is by far more amazing than any of the other images.
In other news, why are we trying so hard to give Mars an atmosphere and move there when we could just as easily fix Venus's atmosphere and move to where the sun is closer?

Actually, what I want to see is an ultra high resolution image of about 20 deep field pics all in a mosaic.

Calling these pictures "Photos of our Universe" is kind of silly. They're really not much different than a photo of a single atom. Both show an insignificantly small portion of the entire universe. Cool pictures, but they're just pictures of really tiny things that make up this ginormous universe we call home.

Last week, the Hubble Ultra Deep Field became my new background. Damn our universe is impressive.

And in regards to the Hubble Deep field photo...

That picture represents an area equivilant to a tennis ball, 100 meters away Imagine a tennis ball at the opposite of a football field...that many galexies are in that TINY AREA.

Obviously its impractical to seriously entertain how truly small we are all the time, but every now and then its refreshing to realize just how insignificant we are. Kinda makes all our wars and woes very petty.

Yeap Hubble Ultra Deep Field is my background too.

No sombrero galaxy? Wtf. Well, here it is anyway.

What do these pictures look like un-colorized?

Thank God I'm the most important person in the universe, or that photo might have erradicated my soul.

"But, but, we are the only planet that has life.
That's what I heard in church when I was little."

I found this post interesting because believing in God and believing that life exists are about the same thing. There is no evidence that either case is true. But it MUST be true right?
