The Universe: crushing egos since 1,000,000,000,000,000 BC

That was ... awesome, in the true and original sense of the word.

Now that is one BIG freaking star! And this video presents an excellent argument in favor of the proposition that "the stars are gods."

The divine form He made mostly of fire so that it should be as bright and beautiful to look on as possible; and He made it spherical like the universe and set it to follow the movement of the highest intelligence, distributing it round the circle of the heavens to be a kind of universal cosmic embroidery.

--Plato, The Timaeus

Exactly! :-)

And those are just stars. Can you imagine the size of a galaxy, or a galactic cluster, or a galactic supercluster ... ?
