Default Interesting fact about the solar system..

If anyone ever wonders how BIG the universe ever really is.......

I'm sure everyone has seen those photos from Hubble, etc where it shows 1,000's of Galaxies in a single photo. Zoom after zoom after zoom after zoom and the galaxies will show up. Just how big of a portion of the night sky is that really?

Go outside, pick up a grain of sand. Hold that on your finger tip and hold your finger tip up agains the sky. The sky being blocked by that single grain of sand holds all those galaxies in those photos we see !!!

Just thougth I'd share ;-)
