“For the moment we appear to be unique in the vast expanse of the cosmos. Scientists now believe that the universe we inhabit is nearly 17 billion light years (1 light year = the 9.46 trillion miles that light travels in one year) from one side to another, while our Milky Way galaxy alone is 100,000 light years across.

Within the entire universe, estimates for the number of galaxies are a staggering 200 billion, each galaxy holding somewhere in the same neighborhood of the 200 to 500 billion stars that are believed to be in our own.”
