Dropping Science: Just How Big do Stars Get?

We’ve got a bit of a sizeĀ comparison this week. Turns out that for all his bluster, Moon is just one small piece in a much bigger puzzle. I remember seeing this video for the first time a couple of years ago and it really blew me away just how small our solar system is compared to some of the bodies out there. The fact that it has a slightly sinister soundtrack just makes it even more fun. šŸ˜‰

I’m rather liking this little science drop at weekends. It’s nice to be able to share some of the stuff that inspires me in indirect ways as well as direct ones. More next week.
