Ever look up into the night sky to see the grey-blue mist and wonder how many stars there are? Well what seems to be gas and dust poured across the midnight sky is in fact more stars! Our Galaxy has roughly 200 billion stars, and that is seemingly beyond what a mind can comprehend. However, I found a pretty awesome site in which you can zoom into the grey-blue mist, just to give you a small fraction of what you can squeeze into your mind at how vast our galaxy is, and how vast the universe is. For every star you see, there are over 100 more galaxies just like our own with each up to 200 billion stars or more. Thus I ask, are we truly destined to remain here, or are we to venture out and explore the Universe?
