It's amazing how really we are nothing but a dust particle in space.

This really reminds me of how tiny and insignificant we all are... Still, it all fascinates me. But at the same time, scares me too.

We are nothing. It's true.

Yeah, it is a bit like looking at some microbes in a petri-dish through a microscope. Silly analysis I know. lol

Don't be too impressed with the size of Neptune or Uranus. They are only around 14-17 Earth masses each. Earth is a much denser planet for its volume than the icy giants.

We're still the largest rocky planet in the solar system. Mercury and Mars are tiny in comparison to us. Venus is around the same size and mass as Earth.

Earthcane
03-02-08, 11:59
yes it does :D
Depends in what context :mis:

The question I really want answered to this: Is Earth, or our Solar System, in
danger from 'Dying stars' ??

The destruction of Earth is no more significant than bursting a bubble in the grander scale of things. :cln: Thanks for sharing. Very interesting site. :tmb:

Nonsense. There would be no concept of a "grander scale of things" without a human mind and imagination to apreciate it.

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure exactly where you're coming from. :confused: Surely, I don't come off as one to dismiss the fact that the concept of "grander scale of things" would entail human mind and imagination, do I?

Gregori
03-02-08, 12:44
Only people can have the concept of a "grander scale of things" in the first place, It just makes no sense to belittle life , the Earth or humanity.

surely earth cant be the only planet with life?? (excluding the little bugs on mars)

Alright, I get you. It's currently 2 hours to midnight here, and I have to get ready for bed, so philosophical banters like this will have to wait. :p But I think it's important to point out that what I meant was how the Earth's scale pales in comparison to other heavenly bodies out there, and not humanity per se. Heck, I'm human myself, and if we we're to talk ideologies, I'd say man is innately good and intelligible thus capable of conceptualizing things like "grander scales." But ultimately, and mathematically speaking, in the grander scale of things, Earth is but a spec of sand in comparison to, say, Sirius, but by no means does this fact belittle life and humanity.

It's really mind-blowing, huh? :D I remember the first time I actually began to fathom how small Earth is... and still it holds more than enough places to explore in a lifetime! :)

I also love looking at the stars.. I have a feeling it's important once in a while to remind us that we're not the gods that some people seem to think they are..

Scariest thing I have seen! Now I feel small in a HUGE universe on a small planet.
