Hey Space Placers!
We live on an extraordinary planet in an ordinary galaxy surrounded by the smallest and largest of all the Universe. In our hustle and bustle of everyday life we focus on the immediate and what we can see.....we forget or are not aware of what constitutes all that we see and all that is.
Here is a very informative and entertaining (a necessity in today's uber-technology world) segment that goes from the smallest to the largest components that combine to make up our Universe. It is said that the very small makes up the very large and this is true. The subatomic particles ultimately make up the stars, planets, galaxies and us.
Take some time and contemplate the very small to the very large....it will provide some cosmic awareness that you will appreciate: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120312.html.
