As we’ve noted before in this very blog, we here at SF Gateway are big fans of NASA‘s excellent Astronomy Picture of the Day site. If there’s a better diurnal dose of delight out there on the internets, then we don’t know where it is.
We are also – as all right-thinking sentient beings are – big fans of the late, great Douglas Adams. So when an opportunity comes round to link them both together, you can count us in!
‘Space . . . is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly 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 . . .’ and so on.
How big? Well, it’s this big. Take it away, APOD . . .
