The Universe is So Scary


  1. This is earth, this is where you live.
  2. And this is where you live in your neighborhood, the solar system.
  3. Here's the distance, to scale, between the Earth and the moon. Doesn't look too far, does it?
  4. THINK AGAIN. Inside that distance you can fit every planet in our solar system, nice and neatly.

  5. But let’s talk about planets. That little green smudge is North America on Jupiter.

  6. And here’s the size of Earth (well, six Earths) compared with Saturn:

  7. And just for good measure, here’s what Saturn’s rings would look like if they were around Earth:

  8. This right here is a comet. We just landed a probe on one of those bad boys. Here’s what one looks like compared with Los Angeles:

  9. But that’s nothing compared to our sun. Just remember:

  10. Here’s you from the moon:

  11. Here’s you from Mars:


  12. Here’s you from just behind Saturn’s rings:

  13. And here’s you from just beyond Neptune, 4 billion miles away.

  14. Let’s step back a bit. Here’s the size of Earth compared with the size of our sun. Terrifying, right?

  15. And here’s that same sun from the surface of Mars:

  16. But that’s nothing. Again, as Carl once mused, there are more stars in space than there are grains of sand on every beach on Earth:

  17. Which means that there are ones much, much bigger than little wimpy sun. Just look at how tiny and insignificant our sun is:

  18. Here’s another look. The biggest star, VY Canis Majoris, is 1,000,000,000 times bigger than our sun:

  19. But none of those compares to the size of a galaxy. In fact, if you shrank the sun down to the size of a white blood cell and shrunk the Milky Way galaxy down using the same scale, the Milky Way would be the size of the United States:

  20. That’s because the Milky Way galaxy is huge. This is where you live inside there:

  21. But this is all you ever see:

  22. But even our galaxy is a little runt compared with some others. Here’s the Milky Way compared to IC 1011, 350 million light years away from Earth:

  23. But let’s think bigger. In JUST this picture taken by the Hubble telescope, there are thousands and thousands of galaxies, each containing millions of stars, each with their own planets.

  24. Here’s one of the galaxies pictured, UDF 423. This galaxy is 10 BILLION light years away. When you look at this picture, you are looking billions of years into the past.

  25. And just keep this in mind — that’s a picture of a very small, small part of the universe. It’s just an insignificant fraction of the night sky.

  26. And, you know, it’s pretty safe to assume that there are some black holes out there. Here’s the size of a black hole compared with Earth’s orbit, just to terrify you:

***

This is your home.



This is what happens when you zoom out from your home to your solar system.



And this is what happens when you zoom out farther…


And farther…


Keep going…




Just a little bit farther…


Just a little bit farther…




And here it is. Here’s everything in the observable universe, and here’s your place in it. Just a tiny little ant in a giant jar.

The universe is scary, isn't it?
Seluas itu semesta yang bisa diidentifikasi dengan science saat ini, entah berapa banyak lagi yang belum teridentifikasi. Dan semua planet, bintang, galaksi itu sungguh mudah bagi Allah untuk menghancurkan atau menciptakannya kembali. Masyaa Allah.

Bumi yang kita bangga-banggakan benar-benar tak ada apa-apanya dibanding alam semesta, lalu kita manusia yang kecil ini, punya apa untuk disombongkan?

Allah Pencipta langit dan bumi, dan bila Dia berkehendak (untuk menciptakan) sesuatu, Maka (cukuplah) Dia hanya mengatakan kepadanya: "Jadilah!" lalu jadilah ia. (QS. Al-Baqarah:117)

Sesungguhnya dalam penciptaan langit dan bumi, silih bergantinya malam dan siang, bahtera yang berlayar di laut membawa apa yang berguna bagi manusia, dan apa yang Allah turunkan dari langit berupa air, lalu dengan air itu Dia hidupkan bumi sesudah mati (kering)-nya dan Dia sebarkan di bumi itu segala jenis hewan, dan pengisaran angin dan awan yang dikendalikan antara langit dan bumi; sungguh (terdapat) tanda-tanda (keesaan dan kebesaran Allah) bagi kaum yang memikirkan. (QS. Al-Baqarah:164)

Sesungguhnya dalam penciptaan langit langit dan bumi, dan silih bergantinya malam dan siang terdapat tanda-tanda bagi orang-orang yang berakal, (QS. Al Imran:190)

Dan Dialah yang menjadikan bintang-bintang bagimu, agar kamu menjadikannya petunjuk dalam kegelapan di darat dan di laut. Sesungguhnya Kami telah menjelaskan tanda-tanda kebesaran (Kami) kepada orang-orang yang mengetahui. (QS. Al An'am:97)

Sesungguhnya pada pertukaran malam dan siang itu dan pada yang diciptakan Allah di langit dan di bumi, benar-benar terdapat tanda-tanda (kekuasaan-Nya) bagi orang-orang yang bertaqwa. (QS. Yunus:6)

Allah-lah yang meninggikan langit tanpa tiang (sebagaimana) yang kamu lihat, kemudian Dia bersemayam di atas 'Arsy, dan menundukkan matahari dan bulan.Masing-masing beredar hingga waktu yang ditentukan.Allah mengatur urusan (makhluk-Nya), menjelaskan tanda-tanda (kebesaran-Nya), supaya kamu meyakini pertemuan(mu) dengan Tuhanmu. (QS. Ar-Rad:2)

Dan di antara tanda-tanda kekuasaan-Nya ialah berdirinya langit dan bumi dengan iradat-Nya.Kemudian apabila Dia memanggil kamu sekali panggil dari bumi, seketika itu (juga) kamu ke luar (dari kubur). (QS. Ar-Rum:25)
