riding a “planet going around a nuclear fireball”

The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.

– Douglas Adams in his speech The Four Ages of Sand

Found this in someone’s signature, in a “Bad Astronomy and Universe” forum, one discussing interstellar travel and the time dilation effect. Great quote.
