We have always been taught in schools, high school or universities that the Earth has a circumference of about 40,000 km, but what does that mean? To get an idea, I will begin by specifying that in our entire Solar System, we are the 4th largest planet, but we represent a small part of the whole universe, which is in a continuous process of growing, expanding and recreation.
Compared to our planet, Jupiter, Neptune, and Saturn are some giant planets. But even they are extremely small compared to our star, the Sun, located at a distance of 150,000,000 km away from Terra.
The total sunshine is 4,379,000 km, unlike the 40,000 km of the Earth. There are some impressive figures, yet still small compared to what will be discovered in the Universe and what is to be explored.
They say there are small figures because another star, called Aldebaran, is 5,000,000 times bigger than the Sun, Betelgeuse star is 300 times bigger than Aldebaran, and star UY Scuti is 5 billion times bigger than sun. We know that the Sun is 1,300,000 times the Earth and UY Excuti is 5 billion times the sun. By this comparison we can understand how small our “house” is.
I am a travel lover and I am passionate about everything that is related to discovering new cultures, meeting new people and exploring other countries and traditions. You know, I’m that kind of person that strongly believes in the motto “If traveling was free, you would never see me again”. I love to write because this is the way I relax. I have been writing for years on the biggest online travel agency and I have spent the most beautiful period of my life. helping people reaching the desired destinations, with the best offers, tips, and tricks.
