Sometimes I feel tiny and amazed…

This image by the Hubble Space Telescope is the most comprehensive view yet of the universe’s evolution as seen by a space telescope. The colorful image, released June 3, 2014, contains 10,000 galaxies, with the different colors denoting different wavelengths.

Sometimes Sveta is not sure what to think about me….I study such a vast array of information, that I am sure she wonders if I am sane at times. I think constantly and it never stops, even in my dreams I will find that what I worked on during the day extends all night also….I have been looking at how important we are in the schemes of the universe…

Our tiny Sun is one of about 200 billion stars (actually perhaps more) just in our Milky Way Galaxy, that we live in. In the image above is 10,000 galaxies….give or take billions = 2,000,000,000,000,000 (Two quadrillion stars)….try that on for size…

But that image above is only a small portions of what we are able to see and look at with Hubble and like type instruments…

Our universe has about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (that’s 1 sextillion) stars (I personally thing it is much bigger). They don’t know yet because the guy counting them is not done. But he is working hard at counting… 😉

Still think we are special and alone?

Think again, shear mathematics says we are not alone…

PS: I must say, numbers this big do not compute with most calculators, even Google was getting messed up at times….along with super intelligent people seem to not understand that us laymen just want to see huge numbers and to hell with to the power times something something something….huge long numbers look cool…

Tidbit Time: MACS J1149+2223 Lensed Star 1, is the farthest individual star ever seen. It is only visible because it is being magnified by the gravity of a massive galaxy cluster, located about 5 billion light-years from Earth…

1 lightyear is 9,460,730,472,580.8 kilometers. and that my friend means 5 billion light years equals = 4.7303652362904e+22 kilometers??? and or so far that we still do not know where the universe really ends…

Better yet: 5 billion light years is 1533006969.018 parsecs and parsecs to light years is 1 p to 3.26156 ly…

That makes it all better, huh?

Better get our warp drive going Mable!

There is also the number “googol”. It has 100 zeros after it, and it looks like this:
10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 , Oops the web/html/css/whateva is confused and it went off into the universe and your lower scrollbar just became necessary and or it just runs off the screen and disappears. I will put it in smaller sections…

10,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000

Now that is a number and is close to the amount of particles in the universe and thus after that point anything else is basically stupid and worthless in our eyes….but we have those numbers and I decided to ignore them. called the “googolplex”

A googolplex is the number 10googol, or equivalently, 10(10100). Written out in ordinary decimal notation, it is 1 followed by 10100 zeroes, that is, a 1 followed by a googol zeroes…
