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.
