How Small Are We Compared To The Universe


One night in the winter of 1995, turning the back of the Hubble telescope to solve the mysteries hidden in the night sky stars have been turned to millions of light years away to those light beaches. A little closer than the countless stars in the sky near the Saptari church, the telescope, which is less than the number of stars and the light that is brought back due to the surrounding stars.

Hubble Telescope

Many people thought that maybe nothing would be seen, but the result of 150-hour observations for ten days last year gave a big blow to the astrologers. After analyzing the ‘deep field image’ emerging from that observation, there are fewer than 1,500 different galaxies available!

But these deep field images work much like a time machine. Because we think this deep image is a reflection of the immediate condition of the galaxies. It’s not the same thing, Deep Field Image actually looks like these galaxies billions a year ago. The same is true for our eyes, when we look at the sky we look at the past. Astronomers did not stop at just this deep field image. In the decade of taking this picture, the more powerful telescope looked at the space in order to know the space better. After four months of telescopic analysis, ‘Extreme Deep Field Image’ comes in astronomers. About ten thousand galaxies are visible in this picture. Deep field images taken for many years made humans aware of the vastness of the universe.

It can be said for a comparative comparison, the very small part of a medium-sized galaxy called Solar System ‘Milky Way’ or ‘Galaxy’. In the medium-sized galaxy Galaxy, less than 100-400 billion stars live!

The Hubble Telescope was analyzed at the beginning of the same space as if it had taken a ballpoint pen on the sky, at the right-hand corner. It’s a small part of the two-million-largest portion of the vast space, which has hundreds of thousands of galaxies. So let’s think once and then, what’s the whole galaxy in the whole space?

Thirty-two billion light years away from the billion-billion-year-old world are considered to be sustainable. Astronomers believe there can be a huge area beyond this, which is not possible to monitor. And so in the vast world, the fate has got the ‘infinite’ title. There are three hundred septilateral stars in our observable universe. The number given by the number one vacuum is given as ‘one sex strategist’. So, to understand how big our universe is, another question arises in front of us, how small we are compared to this universe, are we really a significant part of this universe?

Calculating on paper, our smallness is understood more clearly, the average height of people traveling around the world is 1.7 meters. And the diameter of the Earth is around 12,700 kilometers. So, compared to this distance of the diameter of this world, we need around 75 lakh average elevators.

The center of which is moving around our globe, the diameter of the Sun is 110 times the diameter of the Earth, which is close to 1.4 million kilometers. If we think about the Galaxy, then there are more than 100-400 billion stars in our Sun. Then again, you need to go back to the Deep Field where 1,500 different galaxies have been found, and according to astronomers, each of them has billions of stars in every galaxy.

The great universe is far away from our solar system or the planet, fearing to compare our galaxy’s galaxy with a cottage, fears the astronomers. And our infinite smallness has sown the scientist, the poet, the literary or the philosopher.

Carl Sagan

According to the famous astronomer Carl Sagan, “Our condition is very similar to the dust in the morning sky.” In the universe that has passed over more than 150 billion years, humans can not think more than a common chemical device, newly born scientist Stephen Hawking, according to him, Our solar system in the corner of the galaxy is not anything remarkable!

So, in the night sky, there were numerous stars in the form of emotion, as well as being emotionally stirred. It gave people the thought of food. Right from the beginning of the thought of humanity. Renowned French mathematician Pascal said on this, “When I think of the short period of my life, it must be lost in the great times. There is no place for me and the whole mankind in the vastness of the universe. We do not know anything about the vast universe, this extraordinary silence of the universe gives me pain. ”

What is the reason we interested in whether there is any intelligent creature anywhere in the universe? Are we looking for someone who is intelligent enough to deal with cosmic loneliness? Novelist Joseph Conrad gave us the name of this loneliness as ‘awful loneliness’. Our thoughts over the vastness of the night sky, and the vastness of the universe. Our thoughts have provoked this lonely loneliness over and over again. Scientists have tried to communicate by sending various waves and signals from the sweat of the head day after day, spreading the vast part of the solar system, but we did not have enough loneliness. So far, the only intelligent person in the solar system has been more alone than this given us no relief. Astronomers, however, are still searching for life in the solar system
There is no logic in contrast with this concept.

Bertrand Russell

According to the famous philosopher Bertrand Russell, the size-shaped veneration is absolutely meaningless. Sir Isaac Newton was a lot younger than the hottest hippo, but so is his importance in human society. According to Russell, our shape on the cosmological scale in the same logic cannot lead to inferiority in us. Because this size is just a form of silver. There is a strange love for a huge object in the human brain. For this reason, maybe we interested in building a huge building. But at the end of the day when you will ask to choose one of the huge haystacks. And one diamond ring, you will definitely choose the small diamond ring. So, we are small in the cosmic scale, our importance is not less!
