Like a Small Boat on the Ocean: We are Standing Alone

By Hafsa Naeem - November 06, 2018

 Today, we are more aware of our Universe. We know we are standing alone in the whole COSMOS. The old concepts about our existence on this planet were just like an Umbrella concept. Old concepts said that we are living on a flat surface that had skied like an umbrella. That sky contained many small shiny dots (stars),  a Sun and a Moon. There was a concept that there is nothing else beyond these visible objects. 
Umbrella Cocept
Now the point is, What would happen if we still had stood in that same Umbrella concept similar to our ancestors? The answer is so simple that we could not find the purpose of our existence. 
At that time, people think the Universe is the only thing that can be seen through the naked eye. Moreover, Earth was considered as the centre and all the visible objects like sun and moon revolved around the Earth.

Now We are not Standing Alone: 

If Nicolaus Copernicus was not born we still believe that the Earth is present at the centre of the solar system and there are only one sun and moon.

If Giordano Bruno was not taken the risk to study the banned books like “On the nature of things” written by Titus Lucretius. We would have still believed that we are standing on a flat surface, living under the blue umbrella having small tiny and shiny dots(stars) on it. We will not be able today to take the first step towards space, our first step on the moon and send missions on Mars.

Now it is proved that our  Earth is not alone in this entire Universe. Our Earth is actually a tiny blue dot standing in space with millions of other stars, galaxies, and superclusters.
Our Earth Is Just a Tiny Dot
Now we know that our earth is present at the centre of the solar system, the Solar system is the part of Milkyway galaxies, A combination of galaxies is considered as a local group, a cluster of local groups is known as Virgo cluster and that is observable Universe.
