NASA Day 5- Big and Small

In accordance with this awesome contest that Beth Revis is doing:, I'll be blogging every day celebrating NASA. Beth Revis writes the Across the Universe Trilogy. You can check out the book review I did of the the books in the archives.

Anyway, onto my space post:!/photo.php?fbid=10151486800471772&set=a.67899501771.69169.54971236771&type=1&theater

This is a link to a picture of the Cassini Spacecraft seen by the rings of Saturn. It's just a tiny speck, millions of miles away from home. It really gives a perspective for how small we are in comparison. This is one of the most fascinating aspects of NASA: we're trying to learn about a world that's so much bigger than us. We are ants digging tunnels through space and time. The tunnels seem huge to us, but in perspective, they're quite tiny.
