Our galaxy

Mario Ruiz

Putting things into perspective is always so hard to do -- both in life and in the physical world. Here's an example of our galaxy's vastness, which helps put the Milky Way and the universe in perspective. I read a few of the copy in between planets. My favorite: "If you were on a road trip, driving at 75mi/hr, it would have taken you over 500 years to get here from earth." and "Lots of time to think out here."
