What the aliens showed you…

By | August 9, 2008

You are one of 6,715,569,232 ( 6.7 billion) humans on the planet Earth.

Antares, the 15th brightest star In the sky, is over 1,000 light years away.
One light year is about 5,878,499,810,000 ( 5.88 trillion) miles.

The Milky Way galaxy, visible at night from Earth, contains about 500,000,000,000 (500 billion) stars. This is just one galaxy. Next, look at a Hubble Telescope Ultra Deep Field Infrared View Of Countless ‘Entire’ Galaxies Billions Of Light-Years Away:

Now How Big … ?- dragonfaerie

There are over 70 sextillion stars in the known Universe, that’s 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Put another way, there are 10 times as many stars in the universe as there are grains of sand on all of our beaches and deserts.

This is just the stars we can see. Actually, there are many more stars than this, because the universe is so big that light from the other side, which has been traveling toward us for 13.73 billion years when the universe was formed, hasn’t reached us yet.

Imagine you were just taken up in a UFO and shown this by aliens.

In what ways will your life now change?
