    Your pic above, puts, as you know, merely SOME of it into perspective, but even with just that, is quite humbling.

    Got myself into big trouble some years back on a board, (in a galaxy far, far away, lol), saying I believed there were actually two - or maybe even more than two - UNIverses.

    The literal-ists, of course, had to remind me that UNI meant "one." (duh) Don't know if was lack of imagination, or a superiority complex, but few could accept the possibility of parallel universes.

    Nevertheless, humbling to realize we're a speck, with so much we have yet to learn! Exhilarating, too!
    A Quantum Multiverse would make three universes a speck.

    Pfft! I found the edge of a Milky Way Dark Chocolate bar.

    Humans will never conquer space, or even explore it. 15 million years just to travel. Still it is fascinating,

    Yeah, it' more like the US or even the planet. Most people have no idea our solar system is so freakin' massive.
    3/24/20 the democrats are holding up the relief bill over funding for Planned Parenthood.
    - holding this one hostage too so they can blame the delay on Trump and Republicans. Don't they lie enough? Don't they steal from us enough? How did Pelosi and Schumer get so rich?

    Professor Cox explains how big our solar system is and how far to the next nearest sun.

    Again. The part with the Sun and planets...only a teeny tiny part of the solar system.
