You Are Here

Kathleen Guss

November 27, 2013

When I joined the Planetary Society about 30 years ago, I bought a poster entitled "You are Here". It showed our Solar System with an arrow pointing to Earth. The full poster was the Universe with the arrow pointing to a dot in the Milky Way - You are here. Earth appears small in the Solar System, but not as small as the Milky Way appears in the Universe. My poster is displayed in a window that faces my back yard.
