Simple space tattoos – a reminder of how vast is our universe

Since the dawn of time, people looked up to the sky and wondered how far away are those stars and more importantly – what are they? Very soon, those observers noticed, that the sun, moon, stars, and planets followed specific paths in the sky. They also saw that those paths changed accordingly to the seasons. The ancient Egyptians noticed that the star Sirius matched with the floods of the river Nile.

For thousands of years, stars in the sky lead the way for sailors and other travelers. Greeks saw their gods and other mythical creatures and formed the famous constellations that we know today.

So, as we can see, stars and skies have been following humans for a very very long time. Today, we know much more about it. We have such powerful telescopes that we can see back in time. However, we know that even now we’ve discovered just a tiny spec of all of our universe. The deeper we go, the more we see. Only a single thought of how big is the cosmos blows up the mind. Just listen to this – there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand in all the beaches in the world.
