  4. We humans are really not prepared to grasp the vastness of the universe. I'm having difficulty even visualizing the size of Jupiter.

  7. Astronomycast (can be found via google or itunes) did three casts about a similar topic. They discussed the shape, size and where the center of the universe is.
    I'm also glad to see that there are bloggers out there with an appreciation of astronomy! Keep it up!
