I Am but One Piece in a Very, Very Large Dance

It is so easy to lose track of how beautiful, majestic, and awe-inspiring it is simply to be alive. It is easy for me to get stuck in thoughts of bank accounts, chores, and daily responsibilities. I can easily to forget  how amazing it is to breathe air, see colors, think thoughts, and marvel at the awe of everything. 

When I lose track of my way facts such as the recently discovered ASASSN-15lh super-luminous supernova helps remind me. 

A supernova a truly massive explosion which occurs at the end of the life of some stars. Scientists recently discovered an explosion so large they have no idea what it is. 

If you take ALL of the light of the billions and billions of stars in the Milky Way galaxy combined together, the ASASSN-15lh explosion is 20 times brighter. 

This explosion is so large research scientists are unsure how it could have been created. 

“The explosion’s mechanism and power source remain shrouded in mystery" - Subo Dong, researcher, and author. 

There are big mysteries, such as this, left to discover. There are mysteries of unknown power and scale. 

These thoughts help remind me - I am  one piece in a very, very large dance. It is an amazing wonderful dance. I want to always remember how amazing it to be a part of. 

A Great Way to Visualize How Truly Far Away the Planets Are From the Sun

Albert Stern

I really want humans to go explore the planets. I want us to land on Mars. I want us to dig into the ice on Europa. I want to know what that hexagon on top of Saturn is doing. I want to know if there is life anywhere else.  

It is difficult to get a sense of how truly far away the planets are from each other. The website phrenopolis.com created a great way to start to appreciate the vast distances of space. The website scrolls horizontally and is to scale from the sun. The whole page is a half mile long! 

Using the site you scroll, and scroll, and scroll, and then suddenly...Mercury! Then scroll and scroll and scroll. 

Go take a look!

Note: Seriously, the hexagon on top of Saturn is ridiculous!
