Do you know how big the universe is?



I have to say, this video made me feel..good and scared at the same time!

We are so little.
Imagine how many other intelligent societies are out there?

Open your Eyes
We are not alone.

  1. We'd never know, but our species is probably not even smart compared to the ones we've never seen before.

  4. I think we'll make contact with aliens in our lifetime. They must exist as the universe is so huge.

  9. Some of these perspective videos are very interesting. There's another with stacks of pennies on a table, showing the effects of some budget cuts on the deficit. I forget what it was called, but essentially, it's "we're cutting x billion dollars" then he cuts a quarter out of one of the thousands of pennies, and shows the impact.

  14. With all the information out these days its hard to believe that people still doubt the existence of UFO's! This was an amazing perspective video I look forward to reading more of your stuff! Keep it up!

  17. I also believe that in a cosmic sense, we're quite insignificant.

  19. this is one question i try to avoid and usually close my eyes and scream yadayadayada.
    This will take away the present time. we are always taught to visualise things with end if I think abt universe it goes no where, so I better skip thinking abt it

  20. It'd be an aweful waste of space if there was nothing else out there.

  21. I posted something similar on my blog about the size of our planet in comparison to other planets and stars. Truly amazing stuff. Followed.

  22. I really like Carl Sagan's blue dot too.

  23. WOOOOOW! Instant added this vid to my favs, aswell your blog...

    People must be really stupid to think that this whole thing is there just for us, small beings...

  24. If we encounter other life forms, well if they encounter us, then we're boned. We wouldn't even be within 5000 years of their technology.

    ReplyDelete
  25. We're not even a spec on the universe, how can people believe that there are no other forms of life?

  26. We are to Cthulhu as plankton is to the mighty whale

  27. I love videos like this, this is precisely why I get to have a positive outlook. Because nothing really matters :D

  28. I wonder if the technology gap that many think will be present should we encounter ET will really be so great.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know we are not alone in the universe. It is interesting to listen to people who are ignorant and think we are the only intelligent life out there.

    ReplyDelete
  30. i swear there must be so many other planets with intelligent life on it. I wonder if they have internet?

  31. see i have to disagree on intelligent life being found out there somewhere. Even if there was why would they make contact with us? The only reason they would contact us would be the same reason that Europeans went for the new world.

  32. I never knew the universe was so big, I was amazed to find out the other day that they may have discovered another planet very deep in our solar system. We have so much to learn still about our own system and planet it's insane!

  33. How does the camera travels 14 billion light years in seconds?

  34. I really can't even begin to put in to perspective the massive scale of our universe. There is absolutely nothing to compare it to. Watching these types of videos makes me think for hours. Thanks for the post. I'll be following your blog.

  35. Nice post.
    Funny how with how small we are and how big the universe is, religious people STILL believe their god made it all just for them.
