Gee, that sure shifts ones perspective in a rather dramatic fashion!
What a great 'lesson'!

There's got to be someone else on some other planet looking up at the same stars and galaxies, too. It's like they said in the movie, "Contact" -

"Terrible waste of space."

Funny...that "HUBBLE" picture of all those galaxies almost looks exactly like a close up photo of toast crumbs on a black leather sofa.

It's like what agent Moulder said....well actually you can pretty much pick any quote he said and apply it in this instance
cheers
ps: I posted my own video in me travel blog.

That's wonderful. I'm going to send that to the Munchkins. They'd love it.

'Cause there's bugger-all down here on earth!"

I love being little and wee!

I never tire of that perspective. Suddenly wanting a new couch seems so insignificant, and just hours ago it was all I thought about! Silly, tiny, little blip in space and time.

This is marvelous! Truly. Thanks so much for helping to put things into perspective ... I'll be sharing this for sure with my daughter and husband.

I enjoyed your pics a few posts back ... "Misty" ... lovely looking place.

I sent this to the Munchkins, and they loved it. They were awestruck.
