The Universe in Scale

One of the guys at work just forwarded this to me, and I felt I had to share.

It's 5 pictures of various heavenly bodies, in scale with each other, giving you a good indication of the scale of the universe.

No wonder the Antarans are so tough.

According to Michael (the guy at work who sent this to me) Antares is about to go supernova ("about to" on a Universal scale, that is).

Now all you need is an arrow that says "You are here"

I was going to say "wow"...but that would be far too little and insignificant.

Hmmm...

   Is it just me, or is it somehow cool to see that the Earth is depicted with the Asia and Australia (rather than the “default” North American continent) face showing?

Mum emailed those to me on Friday, too. They're awesome!

I forwarded them on to several workmates, and then had to explain to my supervisor what all the other stars were, because she'd never heard of them... *headdesk*

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
