A Flight through the Universe 

Mind boggling

  • There are billions of such galaxies in our universe with each galaxy containing billions of suns with planets orbiting. Yet our monumental arrogance still leaves us questioning whether we are alone.

  • Amazing. We are so inconsequential in the scheme of things.

    Don't sweat the small stuff. Just enjoy life!

  • To help put the size of the universe in perspective. If it were possible to travel at the speed of light, which is 186,000 miles every second, It would take 100,000 years to travel from one side of our galaxie (The Milky Way)to the other. There are billions of galaxies in the universe. There is no way we will ever escape the confides of our galaxie.

    Makes your head want to explode if you try to think about it.

    • @kneecapper Why is it obvious?

      We have no evidence at all for aliens. No signals from deep space. You might think that one of those alien species would have mastered intergalactic travel by now and shown up.

    • @MikeDuke Yes, but say one of these alien species is in another galaxy and they develop a telescope powerful enough to view Earth. Then because of the time it takes light to travel there, then they'll probably see dinosaurs, and who in the hell wants to come and see some giant angry lizards?

  • Each snowflake at least 100 billion suns, with many more planets, the unknown, unknowable number of civilizations that have come and gone, with vast histories, their own evolution, species, dynasties, societies, philosophies, art, and loves. And that shows just a very small fraction of our known universe. Truly unfathomable.

      ok so you BELIEVE that they exist.. because we have no evidence

    • @xlolex46 hmmm, not sure you can play that card my friend.
      Those universes are real, we can see them above us in the nights sky and on videos just like this one. So by the law of averages it's more likely that there is life out there other than us.
      But no one has given me any proof that there is a God.
      All the more power to you if you believe in a higher power though. :)

    • @xlolex46 I believe the odds are in favor of the picture I painted. I believe it's very highly probable. Until we make contact it is admittedly speculation, but there is nothing we know of that would prevent it from being true. Imagination is a wonderful thing. Actually believing in mystical fairy tales, mythical beings who influence our existence, and physically impossible miracles, is in a completely different category.

    • @johnwad
      "different category" because you say it to be so. By definition the "picture you painted" is still a belief. Equal to any other.

    • @xlolex46 Belief is relative, not binary. All beliefs, levels of belief, and ways of establishing belief, are not, in fact, equal. You are attempting to pretend there's some hypocrisy where there is none. It's a silly point. But you're entitled to be silly. Have at it.

  • And too think they all revolve around the earth!....well that is if you were a RELIGIOUS ARROGANT RETARD a few hundred years ago!...thank god am an atheist and we have scientists who look for evidence instead of making up Bullshit!.....this video has only a tiny fraction of the estimated 100 billion in the observable universe...and after 14 billion light years we cant see any further..there may be an infinite number of galaxies..and universes! Its Mind blowing shit for sure!

    • @Daveb123 Atheists seem to think that they do not have any made up beliefs. And yet if one looks, one quickly finds that atheism is a belief system (a faith) that is constructed of "just-so" leaps of faith and "just-so" storytelling.

      For example how is it that matter follows natural laws (such as the laws of physics, thermodynamics)? Atheism answers that it "just does". Where did these laws come from? Atheism answers that they "just are". How can conscio More..

  • All those galaxies, with all those stars ..... life HAS to exist elsewhere. This is the single thing I would like validated before my time is up.

    • @Aussie It's really sad but we will never find out how the universe was created and what is out there. I'm sure there is other live on multiple other planets inside thousands, millions, billions of galaxies. But every galaxy is at least few million light years away from the other. It's impossible even to comprehend how far it is. Just like you, me and billions others living on Earth we will die without finding out the biggest mystery. No pun intended.

      Maybe after death?

    • @Aussie I think about this everyday, how lucky we would be to witness such a discovery. It's out there for sure, but will we survive to see it? As an individual or as a civilization? Our technological adolescence has just begun, and I doubt that many civilizations who make it to this point outlive their technological adolescence, only time will tell.

      Mate, I agree, other life is out there for sure ..... any confirmation of life is good enough for me. But this upload prompted me to wonder how it might happen, in our physical form or something else, and I uploaded this about an hour ago. Hey, thnx for the feedback.

      Sure, that may be a mystery and a big question about the big bang (and the why? question) .... but ANY confirmation of life elsewhere is good enough for me.

      Good point.
      But then, we have not proven that life exists on other planets.

      The eggheads have discovered planets that are possibly "earth-like", but no hard proof.

      Yes, and it has come.

      You'd be surprised how a little faith and prayer can get you through even the worst.

      I was an atheist for 10 years. Became a single dad and thought my life and son's life was going down in flames. Met good people that I envied, and it got me to rethink everything again.

      Good evening to you again.
