A small portion of the sky. A glimpse of the immensity of the universe. Be sure to click to enlarge the image . . .and remember, you are looking at many, many galaxies.

Thanks for posting! It is good to get some perspective on things once in awhile. Also when you are looking remember, you may be looking at only one of the many universes with billions of galaxies...if you follow the latest ideas in Cosmology. Many universes and 11 dimensions!!! Life used to be so simple!

I am older than you mate, because I remember beyond that to when the flat world rested on the back of a huge turtle. LOL!
The great scientist/mathematician Bertrand Russell was giving a public seminar once and he was interrupted by a woman from the audience.
"All that stuff you're spouting is so much nonsense! The world is not round; it is flat and rests on the back of a huge turtle." she said. Russell politely asked her, "Then what madame does the turtle rest on?" To which she replied quickly with a triumphal look on her face," Turtles all the way down!!!" ROTFLMAO!

And since we're in the off topic area, I once read a quote by Bertrand Russell I found so striking that I never forgot it.

"The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts."

So true...

Bertrand was quite the guy. Here is another bit of gold from his thoughts.

"It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this."

Check out the problems in the Middle East for an example of what he is referring to.(sorry, I used a dangling preposition!!) :unsure: LOL!
