Want a better idea of how huge the universe is?  Take a gander at the biggest and most detailed image yet of the Andromeda Galaxy, our nearest galactic neighbor, which is 2.5 million light years away and estimated to contain a trillion stars.

Now think about how estimates have shown that there are more than 100 billion galaxies out there, each containing billions and billions of stars…

“Mind-boggling” doesn’t quite cut it.
