Galaxy's Center at your Doorstep

Once upon a time, there was a biology student, who was talking to a physics student. She was excited about marine biology and she was telling him about how much she wanted to study the blue whales and that her dream was to swim by one of them one day. He, who was crazy about astronomy, was telling her about the stars and the mysterious anti-matter. When she started telling him about the whales' songs that hasn't been deciphered yet, he cracked into laughter and told her that "while you are studying the whales' songs, we study the universe's music". What a ... Anyway, though.

The years past and that girl found the " Scale of the Universe" site and she was left there totally speechless. The sizes become non-comparable from one point and beyond. He may was a liiiitle right back then. End of story.

"Scale of the Universe" - Tip: Try to scroll from the limits of observable universe ( order of magnitude: 10 ^ 27) to the strings of Planck (order of magnitude of 10 ^ -35). {...} Did you hear that sound, it was your mind which just blew up.


And then it comes this picture to sprinkle your blown up mind with some chocolate flakes. This photo is huge in size ( see here its original form), with analysis over 24,000 x 14,000 pixels, and shows part of the our galaxy, that includes the center (somewhere on the left).


By zooming and exploring you are are somewhere like here. And here ladies and gentlemen is not some glitter from your awesome crafts. Here is the stars out there. And they are many.

Too much of many.


Make sure to share this pure bliss. The people out there must know!
