I was doing a presentation the other day, and was talking about how modern technology and communication has made the world a much smaller place - and how basically this is a good thing. Not exactly a revolutionary thought, I know - but I'm constantly amazed by the inspiration that's all around us. And today, I stumbled across this remarkable video. By giving context to the numbers, it does a wonderful job of demonstrating just how truly tiny we are when compared to the universe. Humbling.
