We all are fascinated by our place in the Universe. We all ask questions such as where, what, and why are we in the universe? Here I am going to share some mind-blowing facts which will make you question your existence and will show how insignificant, small and meaningless we are in this big mighty universe.
1. Pale Blue Dot
Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken on February 14, 1990, by the Voyager 1 space probe from a record distance of about 6 billion kilometers (3.7 billion miles, 40.5 AU). In the photograph, Earth’s apparent size is less than a pixel; the planet appears as a tiny dot against the vastness of space, among bands of sunlight scattered by the camera’s optics
2. More stars than grains of sand
There are more stars in the Universe than there are grains of sand on Earth – around 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (300 sextillions) – and billions of these are estimated to have one to three planets in the ‘Goldilocks’ zone: not too hot, not too cold.
