If you believe in astronomy’s numbers and want to feel humbled, consider this (I think I did the math right) - there may be as many as 500 billion galaxies (many much bigger than our Milky Way) in the universe, 200 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy (all of which could have planets), and 7 billion humans on the earth. If there were one planet in each star’s solar system with just one being, I would be one of 700,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 beings in the universe. And if each of those planets had 7 billion beings rather than just one, the numbers would get pretty big. Speaking of pretty big, the largest star discoved so far is a billion times larger than our sun - I watch this stuff while I blog J.
Something to think about the next time I find myself sweating the small stuff. .
