Star Size Comparisons

Today, dear Byters, is Video Wednesday, all posts today are video links for you to click on.
(It puts me in mind of the chap who dies and goes to Hell, where he meets the devil:
Devil: Why are you so sad?
Chap: Why do you think? I’m in Hell.
Devil: Hell’s not so bad. We actually have a lot of fun down here. On Mondays, all we do is drink. Whiskey, tequila, Guinness, wine coolers, beer. We drink until we throw up and then we drink some more. And the best thing is that because you’re dead and you’re in Hell, there’s no consequences.
Chap: Sorry, I don’t drink.
Devil: Okay. On Tuesdays we get the finest cigars from around the world and smoke our friggin’ lungs out. If you get cancer, it’s okay — you’re already dead.
Chap: I don’t smoke either.
Devil: Well then, Wednesday is gambling day. Two up, blackjack, horse races, you name it.
Chap: I don’t gamble.
Devil: Thursdays then. Thuesday is drug day. Help yourself to a great big bowl of crack. Smoke a doobie the size of the Titanic. You can do all the drugs you want, and you’ll never die — you’re already dead.
Chap: I don’t do drugs, sorry.
Devil: You gay?
Chap: No.
Devil: Then you’re gonna hate Fridays.)
The first post is a video link to comparative sizes of the planets and stars.  Apart from the fact that it is interesting, I like the music used with it.  The opening and closing musical items are from Blade Runner, the stirring central piece is from The Black Hole.
