View from Mercury


That bright white dot with the little dot next to it is one of the most precious things in our galaxy. That, right there, is earth. The Messenger Space Probe took this picture while on it’s way to orbit the planet Mercury. It never fails to amaze me at how tiny we really are, yet how huge we really are. To know that that there are whole other galaxies out there with itty bitty stuff in them like this is absolutely awe inspiring. To further that awe, it takes the power of an uncountable amount of molecules and atoms to create those massive galaxies, stars, planets, and even you. Embracing that awe has really changed how I think about everything around me, and even the own value of my life.
