the selection This one right here from our perspective on

00:39

earth the stars all appeared to form a single connect

00:42

the dots picture but they're actually very far away from

00:45

each other Right What is the author suggest by comparing

00:48

the constellation to a connect the dots picture and here

00:52

the pencil answers on their way Well as long as

00:58

we've got a handle on what the author does and

01:00

does not say in the article this one's not so

01:03

tough Well we guess that's probably true of every question

01:06

but anyway take choice duel for example please Nowhere in

01:10

the article does the authors say that all the constellations

01:12

look exactly the same If that were true then all

01:15

the stars would be evenly spaced The nighttime sky might

01:18

look more like a giant polka dot blanket then a

01:20

connect the dots pick way have tended to option b

01:23

Sometimes it can be kind of hard to pick out

01:25

a single constellation from all those dots in the sky

01:28

A constellation junkie might see a giant hunter when they

01:31

gaze up at a ryan but to the average joe

01:34

it might look like a giant cities on the sky

01:38

The important thing here however is that the author doesn't

01:41

weigh in on whether or not the constellations looks like

01:43

the pictures they represent so option b is off the

01:46

table It's a little hard to argue with choice cia's

01:49

well if you tried long enough you could probably find

01:52

a picture of almost anything in the stars They look

01:54

like a bunch of random shiny dot so it's Not

01:56

too hard yet again the author says nothing about this

01:59

though so we'll cross off choice See option a is

02:02

the only answer the author mentions making it the obvious

02:05

choice from the vantage point of our little space rock

02:07

here honor it looks like all the stars in space

02:11

are roughly the same distance away from us on one

02:13

giant sheet of sky like points on a connect the

02:16

dots picture In reality though some stars or trillions of

02:19

miles closer to us than others even among those in

02:22

the same constellation though the connect the dots comparison is

02:26

meant to illustrate how we see stars distances in Comparison

02:30

to their actual distances from us Sometimes we like to

02:33

make up our own consolations Last night we sketch that

02:36

one for joan rivers who loves you john looking down 00:02:40.115 --> [endTime] on us from up on high
