Re: I feel so small.

Granted, but that's all dust and gas that just happens to be arrainged in a pretty way. Where else in the universe will you find a 64-bit AMD chip, or a small Asian import car with a cult following?

All joking aside, you are the size you are. No bigger, no smaller. There's a bunch of crap out in space, but don't let it make you lose sight of what this planet still has to offer.

Re: I feel so small.

It's crazy to think we are beginning a moon and mars research effort in place of the Hubble research. Imagine colonizing the moon or mars or even space for that matter. It's hard to believe, but it's possible.
