"Why have you brought us out here?" Ralph cried, pushing his finger through his hair and gripping it in frustration? "We have to go about two hundred miles and you've brought us probably two hundred light years!" "How did you know that?" Harry asked surprised. "Maybe you're better at space travel than we thought!" "Oh … Continue reading The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 9
I saw this on Tumblr and had to share it - this is what the Andromeda galaxy would look like in the sky if our eyes were more sensitive! https://cosmosastronaut.tumblr.com/post/169742302588/beautiful-andromeda-galaxy-how-amazing-would-it Simon 🙂
