repped.. but i'll never fathom it. -1 millionth pixel gives masses of galaxies.

a panoramic view, 360 degree would be a total mind fuck.

and of course .. light has only traveled so far since our inception .. so there are 'unknown' quantities of galaxies we'll never know about, coz light hasn't traveled that far to them or to us, yet.

my best guess ... our universe is a small cell in a larger organism.

yup read all that and took the snide remarks, abuse n so on.

I agree completely, it probably never ends .. we are essentially meaningless.

people ask me why I don't take life seriously .. well ... stuck on a rock, orbiting a ball of fire in a seemingly infinite vacuum. what's to take seriously? all i can do is laugh at muppets in mercs.

Amazing pic. But I think the best taken from orbit is Earthrise, taken on one of the Apollo missions. Can't post pics at the moment but if anyone can find it, throw it up.
