Sometimes you gotta break the rules.


Feel free to try and wrap your head around just how mindbogglingly big space is. Like just to get to pluto you have to travel three billion two hundred fifty two million one hundred thousand miles. And that's if you just wanna keep the scales involved small!

Anyways yeah it's pretty mind boggling big and we can basically observe the past with it.
Which is genuinely just incredibly neat.

OP do you have an overlay of that map showing Goldbelly availability? Asking for a friend.


edit: I'm astrobiology-adjacent. Felisa Wolfe-Simon was gonna ask me to post-doc under her which seemed cool until she fudged some data and made national news for discovering arsenic-based DNA. Turns out that was wrong, whoops.

OP image is very inaccurate, we can see things that are way further away than 7.5 billion light years. The edge of the observable universe is about 45 billion light years away. The universe is about 14 billion years old, so a naive calculation is that the furthest light could have traveled since the Big Bang is 14 billion light years, but that ignores the expansion of the universe itself.

ď Space is big.

Really big.

You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggling big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space. Listen; when you're thinking big, think bigger than the biggest thing ever and then some. Much bigger than that in fact, really amazingly immense, a totally stunning size, real 'wow, that's big', time. It's just so big that by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy. Gigantic multiplied by colossal multiplied by staggeringly huge is the sort of concept we're trying to get across here.Ē

Space is so large that it's impossible for it to fit on your computer monitor. Even if you have one of those high-DPI ultrawides.
