A dot on a globe in the known universe

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Published 23 April 2010

Who are we? We are but a dot on a globe, a tiny insignificant sphere cruising through time and space. We are but a small, minuscule member of the Milky Way Galaxy, one of many galaxies.

I'd like you to see this fabulous digital representation of THE KNOWN UNIVERSE as presented by the AMNH, the American Museum of Natural History. It shows us just where we are in the afterglow of the Big Bang. You will see our planet with our artificial satellites and our moon, our sun and beyond.--Wendy

Vocabulary:

a dot: un punto

beyond: más allá

Cool, but it would be even better if they showed the planets instead of just the orbits

Watching this video has made me think about how important and special we consider ourselves… and how insignificant we actually are. As we believe our problems and concerns are the most relevant in the world, when we realize that we are just tiny points in the middle universe they suddenly become meaningless.
