Even Our Sun is Tiny

Sun and EarthA month ago I stumbled upon a site entitled The Size Of Our World. It has comparing images of our planet, the Sun and much larger stars like Betelgeuse and Antares (the largest two on those pictures). The brightest star of our nightly sky — Sirius — isn’t left out.

I find it quite impressive to see how small and unimportant we are for the existence of the universe. When mankind screws things up there might always be another civilization to make up for our irrational behavior… consoling thoughts.
