We were lying down on the terrace, which has now become the most perfect place to escape the heat.
When A says, "One of the brilliant girls in my class used to ask why do we see the stars only above us & not on all sides even though the Earth is surrounded by planets!?!"
Although I'm a great admirer of nature's beauty,I'm technically zero!!
So I keep quiet.
Now K says using some actions with her hands, "We are not aligned in the same direction , we are kind of " crosses her two hands " perpendicular.. "
A , " So that explains the gravitational force .. "
Though I show no interest to participate in this conversation ,I sense some kinship in the word "Gravitation " & so I turn & say "Huh??!"
K , "We are actually hanging u know.. thats why its like that.. "
"Oh .. ! "

This "Oh" ended the conversation then.
As for my understanding, it still remains the same.Blank as a wall.. ..
Any volunteer who could explain this to me in a very simple layman term is utmost welcome smile

That's 'coz EARTH is a tiny dot when compared to the spread-out flatness of the universe. Would we see sky all around us when we look out of an aircraft. Nope the sky is still above us and so big so very big...:))

That was a good explanation :)
