The Sun will swallow Mercury and Venus and someday these deep oceans will not be oceans anymore and the skyscrapers will be buried under dust but we never stop to consider those things on our everyday lives because certain other things will still be hypernovas eclipsing all of them. Perspective. Picking battles is an art.

This colorful image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble), celebrates the Earth-orbiting observatory’s 28th anniversary of viewing the heavens, giving us a window seat to the universe’s extraordinary tapestry of stellar birth and destruction.
Above the distortion of Earth’s atmosphere, Hubble has an unobstructed view of the universe.
