With something this Big you must start very small, and slowly build up the amount and complexity of your information.
Current estimate: 125 Billion Galaxies
Galaxies can have 100s of Billions of Stars
Bigger Telescopes, other types of Sensors, 100x more maybe 1,000x
No matter how we got here, we are here, and in all that
we cannot be it.
Then show them the picture from The Battle of LA
Give the date, the place, and the time of the event
This picture is real, that is a fact.
Now Tell them the story of The Battle of LA, while they look at the picture
Show them the story with the newspaper clippings if possible
We are not it, and sometimes some of them stop by and take a look.
Reports, Pictures, Cave Paintings, cover the span of human history.
Now if they are still talking to you, take them to the Famous Cases,
as listed in the Thread here. Most people however will not make it
far into any of the Cases the first time you talk to them. But they are
good for the follow-up questions the person is going to ask next time.
