'Not Death Star': Mimas is one of Saturn's Moons and measures 396 km.  (Death Star II measured >900 km.)

Mimas is a moon of Saturn. It was discovered in 1789 by William Herschel, and was named after Mimas, a son of Gaia in Greek mythology. It resembles The Death Star of Star Wars.

Funny pictures about The real size of the sun. Oh, and cool pics about The real size of the sun. Also, The real size of the sun.

Earth like planets!! Wish we knew how to teleport!

Earth-like planet found in distant sun's habitable zone

This artist's conception illustrates a planet known to comfortably circle in the habitable zone of a sun-like star. A new study estimates that there are billion "alien Earths" in our own Milky Way galaxy.

This is the biggest Sun ( Star ) know to human, our Sun next to it would just about appear as a pin prick.

So Insignificant

The scale of planets and stars - Puts things in perspective - funny how the smaller of those stars is more likely to live the longest. Really puts thing in perspective

Sunlike stars eventually become a compact body called a white dwarf, destroying its planets in the process.

This artist's illustration shows a gas giant planet circling a pair of red dwarf stars. The Saturn-mass planet orbits roughly 300 million miles from the stellar duo. The two red dwarf stars are a mere 7 million miles apart.  Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, and a trick of nature, have confirmed the existence of a planet orbiting two stars in the system OGLE-2007-BLG-349, located 8,000 light-years away towards the center of our galaxy.

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed the existence of a Saturn-mass exoplanet in the binary system located light-years away towards the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.
