This solar system is freaking huge. And it’s such a tiny tiny part of our galaxy. I think if anything, it should tell us how small and insignificant humankind is in the grand scale of things. And yet we’re here to observe it, and figure as much of it out as we can before we annihilate ourselves. Ain’t life grand?
