49 Pictures That Will Make You Question Your Entire Existence


By on Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Look at you, so small, cute, and naive. Ready to grow into a fruitful, knowledgeable adult, ready to conquer the world, right? Think again.

This is what you look like from an altitude of 30,000 feet. This is right around the same height that airplanes fly around our Earth. From here you can see the slight curvature of our little blue planet.

This is what you look like from 100,000 feet. This is high up in the Earth's stratosphere.

Not impressed? Felix Baumgartner, one of us, actually jumped out of a little capsule from the stratosphere, 127,852 feet from Earth, setting a new world record.

Here is what you look like from the surface of the moon, 230,000 miles away! We've been here before. No big deal, right?

This is what you look like from Mars. We have a robot here.

This is a selfie taken from Saturn!

 Here you are, a mere 4 billion miles away, just beyond Neptune.

Well let's take another step back. Time to make things a little interesting. This is how small you are compared to the Sun.

That's pretty tiny, isn't it? Not when you think of the comparison of a blood cell to an elephant or a whale. Well there's much more where that came from. These giants are all in our Solar System. Earth is invisible at this scale.

Oh yes, it keeps going. Much, much further. Like seriously, much further!

And we're just getting started! Hold on, it gets worse. Perspective is everything and sometimes it just needs to slap us in the face to truly comprehend some things.
