Earth seems endless and too large to grasp to people, but in comparison to all the galaxies in the universe, it is just a grain of sand in the Sahara Desert. People’s huge dilemmas such as fighting with their parents or what college to go to are crucial issues in our current lives; however, does that mean they are significant to the modern scientific picture of the universe? No matter what one does or says, it seems as if it does not affect the universe.

Without this one incident, our galaxy along with mankind would cease to exist. Just thinking about it makes it so overwhelming to even grasp its greatness. My house, Washington State University, myself and my family, which are extremely important to me, would have never been a part of the universe. What escalates its significance is that it is still happening even after 13.7 billion years later, so more parts of galaxies are being born to add new things and ideas to the universe. Another scientific discovery that belittles us when looking at its immensity is the finding that our galaxy is just one of many or it could possibly be even millions of galaxies, which makes space seem endless and indefinable in size. These scientific ideas about the universe are important, but they do not overpower us in believing that a single human being would be less significant in comparison.
