I agree with Aliquantulus, rjavc and dave9191
I thought the sun was big until I saw W Cephei :O
and now I feel very small and afraid of the universe 8-)

Is there any planet or sun bigger then W Cephei? :(|)

Gives new meaning to Orian's Belt on Men in Black.
We're specs of dust OR the size of an atom in our terms compared to what life might be out there. Yeah that's pretty scary esp. if they have weapons the size of our planet and larger. :O

Yes, there is bigger stars than W Cephei, BabyJLE.
And C Cephei might actually be a small star, if we just could look futher in the space.

wow, I knew there were stars bigger than our sun, but it was just overwhelming at the end to see the size difference.

Cool clip.

Very small minded to think we are the biggest or anything like that, the universe is a big place.


In retrospect, I reckon its also fairly small minded to think Earth is the only populated planet in the universe considering that even Mars shows signs of being hospitable once. One, possibly two planets in the same group, and yet there are countless other Galaxies, and planets orbiting stars? Doubt this is a question of 'maybe'.

Biggest known star so far is VY Canish Majoris. And it is much more bigger than W Cephei.

#22 You're free to believe what you want...but anyone who thinks that out of the billions of galaxies in our universe, we're the only lifeforms, is rather ignorant, or a religious fanatic. Even if god did make the universe, there's no reason to believe he's incapable of making lifeforms in other galaxies...

If our planet exploded, there would be no single civilisation on any other planet, noticing it.

That big is our Universe
