Via the wonderful mind of Mr. Stephen Fry's twitter.
To quote the sadly departed:
"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemists, but that's just peanuts to space."
Nice find, UG.
Seen it before but I still find it cool +rep.
I'd like to see it a (very) hi res showing all of them in one pic, still awesome though.
Stephen Fry is awesome.
"Space is not only stranger then we imagine, it is stranger then we can imagine."
Trust Stephen Fry to put up a great image.
Stephen Fry was the perfect voice for the Guide. When I read the books, I now hear his voice.
Look... Stephen Fry is folk-hero and a British institution, and all that.... But he is not Peter Jones. Peter Jones is THE BOOK. Stephen Fry merely did a voice over on a recent film.
Same goes for Stephen Moore voice of a certain android. Alan Rickman merely did a voice over on a recent film.
Oops. David Learner was in the suit, it was Stephen who was the voice
Rep++ to both of you. So true.
I got an gif about that. Its pretty big so takes a while to load
VY Canis Major F-T-W.
I've brought my towel, all is well.
That first pic could be photoshopped into a single scaled image, but it wouldn't be that accurate, just from how small most of the planets are at the start of each stage.
I know it would have to be fcuking huge, but it would be really cool to see a large single scaled image, showing these planets and big stars... anyone got a pic?
...Bet you losers don't have a star named after you.
That is really cool. These also make me feel insignificant! Love that second video!
Video 1, Morgan Freeman narrating I'd guess? Something about his voice and David Attenboroughs. I could listen to them for ever.
Also once again, the universe is bloody stupendous and wonderful. I love nature.
You sod! - I've come over all insignificant feeling thanks to you and your >< sense of scale...
Nice find though.
And just to make us seem even smaller...
Then add to that VY Canis Majoris, which is more than twice the size of Antares.
