May Day

In the grand scheme of things,
this little blue sphere we inhabit, is such an amazingly insignificant speck of cosmic dust that it boggles the imagination.  Astronomers using that huge orbiting telescope have recently witnessed the collision of two distant GALAXIES… huge clusters of stars, unknown solar systems,  and countless moons and planets.  It took eons for the image to reach our solar system.  The event actually took place long before our planet’s very existence.
 
And while scientists scurry to build a Super Collider somewhere on the border between France and Switzerland, willing to risk creating a BLACK HOLE, that would suck in all surrounding Light and Matterthe MILKY WAY speeds toward  an inevitable 5-6 billion year collision with the ANDROMEDA galaxy.
 
Makes ya feel kinda small, don’t it ?
