The universe is a big, big place. According to astronomers, there are 100 billion to 200 billion galaxies in the universe. Each galaxy is filled with stars. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, contains up to 400 billion stars of various sizes and brightness. So, if you ask yourself how many stars are there in the Universe? The answer is mind-boggling.
This week astronomers at Cal Tech announced that our solar system may in fact have nine planets after all, and no, it’s not about Pluto.
When planets are destroyed they form an asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter there is an asteroid belt… was there a secret planet there?
I’m sure you have found yourself looking up at the night sky and wondering just how big the universe is. How could you not?! It’s just so vast, and we are just so tiny! It’s almost impossible not to ponder just how vast it really is, how far it reaches.
2015 was the year we saw Pluto and found water on Mars. In 2016, we’re going to learn just how the planets were made. Today looking ahead at what to expect in space this year. There’s a lot going on!
