Thought of life….

I had just this picture saved as a draft. It was a very curious picture that brought me a numerous amount of thoughts. As I was in my Earth Science class we reached the chapter on  Astronomy.  My professor told us something very humbling fact that hit home. The universe is so vast. We really cant phatom how vast it truley is. The nearest star system to our planet in the Milky Way is  4.234 light years way. Meaning that It would take light 4.234 years to travel from Earth to Proxima Centauri(Star System). If we were to travel 37,000 miles per hr it would take 80,000 years to reach.

He later on went on to describe A galaxy and what is made up of.


1: Super massive Black hole
2:100’s of 1000’s of billions of star systems
3:1000’s of billions ^10power of stars
4: to each star there’s a hand full or so of planets

Let me give you a compares as to the gravity of how many star systems there are in one galaxy…
One star system in a galaxy
is to
One grain of sand on a beach.
Mind blowing… but it gets even better…
