The universe is a big place. We hear about how big it is when ever we go to planetarium. But knowing something is big and being able to visualize it are two different things. We go about driving to work, cooking dinner, posting our videos on Youtube and its all too easy to forget about the rest of the universe. Afterall, we have much better things to do than think about how big the universe is.
The point here is, the universe is just so big that our brain is not made to hear and process large numbers like this. We orbit around sun, one of the 500,000 Million stars from our galaxy. This image from Hubble telescopes shows that there are billion-times-trillion such galaxies in the universe. The number is so big that the probability of not having life in some other planet is almost zero. Watch this remarkable video to be amazed.
Its too big that it makes human life too small to fight, being jealous and get angry. The things we cry about daily does not matter at all. The universe is spread across 46 billion light year and we don’t even represent a dot on it.
