Best science lesson ever:
If the Earth were a grape, the Moon would be 16 inches away.
The Sun - 163 yards away.
Jupiter - a little under half a mile away.
The nearest star - 24,000 miles away, and the Great Andromeda Galaxy -- our nearest galactic neighbor in an unimaginably large universe -- one trillion miles away. If we were a grape. Which we are not. We are every calculation in this example times 250,000,000. My head just blew up again.
Anyway, we are in a great place. Especially since it seems to be the only shelter between us and forever.
