Scientists Made An Amazing Discovery By Mapping 8000 Galaxies

Calculating the stars in the cosmos is like trying to calculate the number of sand grains on a beach, it’s not possible. Even though approximations differ among different experts, the overall agreement is that there are no less than between 100 billion and 200 billion galaxies in our universe. Just think about that for a sec, and now toss in billions of stars in each galaxy. Take our home galaxy, the Milky Way Galaxy, for example, which measures nearly 120,000 light years across, and holds up to 400 billion stars.In the video below, a group of researchers collected data on more than 8000 galaxies that surround the galaxy we live in, also stated above, the Milky Way galaxy. They plotted each galaxies movement and location in space, and learned that the Milky Way galaxy is part of one massive system that covers a number of other galaxies, stated to as a super cluster.

  1. Thanks for the article, but I have one comment to make, actually more a suggestion.
    Currently most people on this planet (foolishly) believe that the Big Bang created EVERYTHING(aka The Universe). This is not proven as fact yet, it is JUST a theory. Yes the Big Bang DID happen, but we humans are very foolish if we don't consider any other possibilities other than the Big Bang created the Universe theory. This theory is very poorly thought out. The logic is weak.
    I believe in much of the Big Bang theory, including inflation/expansion, but the one thing I don't agree with is that it also created the (entire) Universe. This is currently accepted as fact, and this is wrong. I don't understand why so many scientists just blindly believe this without ever really questioning it.

    If you're a bit confused right now, then let me clarify: The Universe could very well be much much older than the Big Bang. The Big Bang could be a very rare or very common event INSIDE a Universe that is (possibly) infinitely old, and (possibly) infinitely big. How many have considered the possibility of multiple big bangs INSIDE of ONE very old and very big Universe? (Yes I know about the Multiverse theories, but I'm now focusing just on one Universe for the moment).

    Therefore, since we haven't got ANY prove that the Big Bang created the (entire) Universe, we cannot continue saying things like the Universe is 13.8 billion years old. We can say that the Big Bang is 13.8 billion years old, no problem. Or we can safely say that our OBSERVABLE Universe is 13.8 billion years old. But we really have no idea how old the (entire) Universe could be. Therefore, I would suggest correcting your article to be more in line with proper scientific method and proper science, and logic. There are too many bad scientists out there who spread garbage knowledge and our kids learn this to be facts, when they are not proven to be facts. This is unacceptable.
    But, thanks for the informative article on our Milkyway Galaxy being part of a much larger super cluster, as expected...

    Please see my article on this matter at:


    1. I sorta think the big bang is a big bust and basically a cop out for we dont actually know but being humans we think everything revolves around us

    2. I think you are overreacting. I agree with you. Maybe not everything started at the big bang, but if we are saying this universe, we exclude what might exist in an outer multiverse. Also, time started at big bang, it makes no sense to talk about time of this universe before it's creation. Also, there are theories that our universe might be an expanding bubble inside another bubble. These are all well beyond nowadays technology's reach. If we were to teach our kids only facts about creation, we would teach them nothing, so let them know what we assume and they will decide for themselves if it's right or wrong one day (hopefully)

    3. Not all of us are foolish, only those that accept the Big Bang Theory as definitive fact. I meet far fewer of them than I do those that accept it as theory, so perhaps you are over-stating the foolishness aspect of your position. However, despite its flaws it has far fewer than any other theory of universal creation I have seen.
