Here we are, on Earth. A planet which spins on its axis and revolves around our Sun. This near perfect sphere of hot plasma orbits around the center of the Milky Way, a spiral galaxy which is being pulled towards Andromeda within our local group. This galactic group is being pushed around inside our cosmic supercluster Laniakea, by galactic groups, clusters and cosmic voids. Laniakea itself lies in the KBC void, amidst the large-scale structure of the Universe. Try thinking about the galaxies the next time when you see a butterfly or when you sit down in front of a beautiful nature scene.
The scale of nature is something that our brains can’t really grasp. We can scientifically measure the distance between Earth and Mars, which is 78,340,000 kilometers, but can you really imagine how long distance is 78 million kilometres? If you measure this by how many time you would need to go around our Earth, the answer is 1954 times. If you somehow manage to comprehend how much is 78 million kilometres, try grasping the scale which lies between us and our neighbouring galaxy, Andromeda. The distance is roughly 2,5 million light-years, so it is about 23,651,826,181,452,000,000 kilometers. Good luck understanding that or something much larger. Similar confusion can be reached when you try to understand the size of subatomic particles.
