Where we stand in this universe

This is from an E-mail that was floating around some time ago.

Now, THIS is really fascinating - I’ve never really thought of it in these magnitudes,but it’s rather dazzling to see it presented this way.

I certainly thought this was enlightening. Didn’t even realize we knew much beyond our sun ….

It’s a big universe.

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky.
It is more than 1000 light years away.

The universe humbles us.

And to think that each of us is but one person (out of a few billion) on earth.

"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do.
But attitude determines how well you do it."
