The Scale of our Problems

If like mot other people every day you face a mountain of problems, bills, responsibilities, stress, strife… (yeah it goes on) have a look at these:


The scale of earth to the other planets in the solar system…


The scale of the planets to the sun…



The scale of the sun to some of the stars in our galaxy…

… how big are your problems? I know is isn’t a way out of the problems we have to deal with, but maybe it gives some perspective.

  1. This always blows me away. Frightening in a way. Awesome for sure, but frightening! I lived in Alaska briefly when I was a teen, compete with all my teen problems. I remember looking up at the sky – the stars were so bright! – and thinking how insignificant my problems seemed at that moment.

  2. I always find it fascinating to see how big the world is, and how small we are. It makes me wonder how far will we able to go in the future ! And then every problem does seem as small as us indeed 😊


      1. I went to Space Camp, the whole 9 yards. I was prepared to be an astronaut till my mother crushed my dreams like she did with anything I wanted to be. She said, “you can’t be an astronaut, your calustrophobic.”


      2. I found you comment in my spam. BUT – OH – MY GOD!!!! You went to space camp?? You were going to be an astronaut??? Tell me so much more about this I’m really, really interested to know more.
        I totally HATE how parent crush dreams. Have you ever thought of going back into the space industry in a ground role?


      3. I did, a few times. We got to sleep in the mock space station for the week which was cool. We bunked with up to 5 other kids. Every day we ate all meals at the space center and all day we simulated the training astronauts went through. I’ve never thought about going back into it for a few reasons: 1. I have an established career as a buyer. 2. I don’t want to go back to college and 3. I hate math.

      4. That sounds fantastic! I wish I was a kid that could have gone to source camp.
        You’re a buyer? That’s a kind of crazy world right there, what do you buy?
        I could go back to college but I too hate maths. Funny why I became an engineer really… Lol


      5. I’m not that smart, I didn’t go to university. Although in some ways that does elevate my ability as I’m able to think and haven’t been brain wanted lol
        I’m not called a smarty pants often 😜
