How big is our sun... small, thats how big!

I came across this YouTube video today... look at it... it puts into perspective how small Earth is... how tiny we are in the Universe... now, people go on alot about "we're nothing compared to the nature" or "we know nothing about the Universe" or "when you see how big the Universe is only God could have made it!"

I am not saying any of those because I am of course a pantheist. What I am saying is... Cooooooooool.... the Universe is amazing and beautiful...

You know what, I am going to throw the defination of Pantheism in here as well...

"Pantheism is the view that the Universe (Nature) and God (or divinity) are identical.[1] Pantheists thus do not believe in a personal, anthropomorphic or creator god. The word derives from the Greek (pan) meaning "all" and the Greek (theos) meaning "God". As such, Pantheism denotes the idea that "God" is best seen as a process of relating to the Universe.[2] Although there are divergences within Pantheism, the central ideas found in almost all versions are the Cosmos as an all-encompassing unity and the sacredness of Nature."

X-Ray Vision

While we are a long way from popping on your x-ray vision glasses and watching what your neighbours are up to by "looking" at them through the wall the boffins at MIT have invented an x-ray machine that shoots over 40 beems of radiation through a wall. In the process of doing this around 99% of the energy of the radiation is lost but enough of it comes back bouncing off people that are inside the room you are looking at. Again, when the signal bounces back through the wall again around 99% of the energy is lost again leaving the remaining radiation that is picked up again by the machine that shot it in the first place very low... but it is still enough energy to be able to pick is signature image of a moving (assuming it is moving) person or animal.

Want a better explination! Go here and the coolness in action.

While this is very primitive at the moment think of what this will be like in 10 years!

Space Law - Official Page!

I came across this page this morning. It is about what countries are and are not allowed to do in space. The link is here:

http://www.unoosa.org/oosa/SpaceLaw/outerspt.html

Basically is says that space belongs to no one State or person. It is cool. Worth the read, well, the read of the home page anyway at least, as that is all I have read.

41 Years + 1 day
