Light of the all stars comes through me.

How it’s hard, almost impossible to imagine the size of things in macroworld around us and the hidden microworld within, to understand and compare such things as a millionth part of second in our world and fantastic numbers light years in the universe. Neither microscopes nor telescopes can help us to get the idea about. For example the center of the Milky Way is placed at about 26.100 light years. What is a light year? A light-year is measurement of distance, not of time, that light can travel in one year. Light moves at a velocity of about 300,000 kilometers each second. So in one year, it can travel about 10 trillion km. More precisely, one light-year is equal to 9,500,000,000,000 kilometers. And the distance to the next nearest big galaxy, the Andromeda Galaxy, is 21 quintillion km. That’s 21,000,000,000,000,000,000 km. What is the human’s mission in that endlessness?

Just the universe and light of the stars comes through me.
