It’s a Great Big Universe… and we’re all really puny

All the talk lately about Mars and Neil Armstrong and the “blue moon” has got me peering up at the night sky just a little more often… which leaves me in awe of this space “above” us.

For some interesting virtual views, visit The Scale of the Universe (to compare the size of things from a planck length to the distance from Earth to the Hubble Deep Field)

and An Atlas of the Universe (a “web page is designed to give everyone an idea of what our universe actually looks like”).
