Only Intelligent Life in the Universe? Ya, right…

First off, let me say these images are not mine, I got them in an email from a good friend.  If the images are yours, or you know who created them, please let me know so I can give them credit.

These, as you know, are the planets of our solar system, in perspective of relative size…

Beyond our sun it’s a big universe…

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky.  It is more than 1000 light years away.

This is a Hubble Telescope ultra deep field infrared view of countless “entire” galaxies that are billions of light-years away.

Still think that we are the only intelligent life in the universe?

As you can see we are pretty tiny specs in the big picture, so there is not much point in sweating the small stuff.  Be happy and remember, the universe has it all figured out already.
