Mighty Sol and Tiny Terra

Date: 23rd August 2016 Category: , ,

Flicking through a book I was inspired by the planets and how tiny earth is, dwarfed by the huge sun. You can see the mighty flames of the sun and our tiny earth depicted by a tiny blue dot. I pick this description following Carl Sagan’s description of the blue dot after the Space ship Voyagers One’ journey into space as it turned to take a photo of the earth it showed earth as a tiny blue dot in the distance. It shows our home, our uniqueness but also our vulnerability in its comparison to the mighty sun.
