Size of things


Recommended Posts

Random post I put together because I felt like it.



Approximately 200 Trillion200px-Stylised_Lithium_Atom.pngAtoms

In one cell_3.jpgHuman Cell.

Approximately 100 trillion cells in the human body.

That's 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Atoms


In one hum3.jpgHuman.

About 7,189,174,000 Humans on the Earth.
The number of Atoms at that rate is getting too big for this page.
(Just would make it look awkward)

So atoms are obviously very small. But so are we.
The size of us compared to the earth is much too big for this page. (We wouldn't amount to a pixel)



But what about Earth to Sun ratio? Something like:



Although our star is a small star compared to others.




The only thing bigger is the distance between them.

Our solar system:




To next star:





Our galaxy:




To nearest galaxies:








 Pretty big compared to us. But that's only a few galaxies.
 Estimated 100-400 billion stars (and the same amount of planets) in the Milky Way.










There is nearly 10,000 galaxies in this image alone.

Night sky equivalent of one-tenth the diameter of the full moon. (You can't see one star from this image by eye)


There is an estimated 500 billion galaxies in the universe.

20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars,100x less than atoms in your body. (atoms are tiny)






The universe is estimated at 93 billion light years across.

And that is just what we can see, not all of what may or may not be there.

The world is such a big place, this is just proof that we can't be the only living organisms in the world. It's too big for just the known species.


Yet, there is no solid proof/evidence. :)


Endless thoughts, my friend. Endless thoughts.


The world's left to our imagination. :cool:

It is known that there are an infinte number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination. --Adams
