6. Proxima: The nearest star to Earth (other than the Sun) is Proxima Centauri, a red dwarf, tiny compared to our Sun and invisible to the human eye, but still a roiling mass of super-hot plasma, and with an estimated lifespan far greater than that of our own Sun. When we, our Earth, and our Sun are long gone, Proxima Centauri will continue to spill weak light into the universe for billions of years. The distance to Proxima Centauri is in the order of 10^16m: as the distance to the Moon is to human scale, and the human scale is to the ultraviolet, so is the distance to Proxima centauri. The leap up in distance magnitude to Proxima Centauri from human scale is similar in order to the leap down from human to atomic scale.
