^^Sentinel, you're welcome for that photo. The universe or multiverse is truly a source of wonder, isn't it? Those documentaries that are out now are just amazing. I bet you can appreciate the concept of yugas and kalpas. See the Sun compared to other stars here.

In this picture (click for full size), the Sun, which is 109 times larger than the Earth, represents only a single pixel. Think about that for a second. Now consider that the largest star shown, VY Canis Majoris, isn't even the most massive we know of; that title belongs to R136a1, a star that shines 10 million times brighter than the Sun and has a surface temperature of roughly 40,000 degrees celsius. Incomprehensible.
