Buzz·Posted on May 22, 2017Whenever You Feel Overwhelmed, Remember ThisCompared to the universe, you're nothing more than a speck of dust, but you're the most complex speck of dust in existence.by Pepe H.BuzzFeed Staff, MexicoFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. This big, wet rock is Earth. All your friends live there. NASA 2. It's home to many natural wonders. NASA 3. And some others made by man. NASA 4. The moon orbits it at a distance of 238,900 miles. NASA 5. We went there once. NASA 6. Together they go around a hydrogen ball in a state of constant nuclear fusion, which breaks and combines atoms in increasingly complex elements. NASA It's called the Sun. 7. A little further than the Sun is Mars, a planet completely inhabited by robots. NASA They're all ours. 8. And beyond an asteroid belt is Jupiter, a gas giant that keeps us safe from meteorites. NASA It has weather and storms, just like Earth, but on a much bigger scale. 9. Even farther, at the edge of the Solar System, there is a dwarf planet called Pluto. / NASA/Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory/Southwest Research Institute 10. Together, our Solar System occupies a small space in the Milky Way, our galaxy. NASA 11. Beyond which lies impressive spectacles, like the Helix Nebula, 650 light years away. NASA Some people call it the "Eye of God." 12. Nebulae result from the death of a star. / NASA/Space Telescope Science Institute 13. When stars run out of fuel, they explode, throwing whatever remains of them into space. NASA 14. Sometimes, the shapes they take on can be very complicated. NASA 15. And sometimes, if they are big, new stars can emerge from their remains. NASA 16. But if they are really big, at least 25 times bigger than our Sun, they can become black holes. NASA 17. And when a black hole becomes really massive, its gravitational force can direct an entire galaxy. NASA 18. Endless massive black holes are making endless galaxies spin, with thousands of stars and countless bodies and planets. NASA 19. Each one is special. Like this one, in the shape of a hat. NASA 20. There are as many galaxies in the universe as there are grains of sand on a beach. NASA If not more. 21. And when we look at the edge of the observable universe, billions of light years away, we can still see new galaxies being born. / Subaru/NASA/JPL-Caltech 22. As Stephen Hawking said, "We are just an advanced breed of monkeys, on a minor planet of a very average star." / NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute "But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special." This post was translated from Spanish.
