The Universe...As we know it.
Ever look up in the night sky and wonder, "what's up there?" There are millions of stars in The Milky Way Galaxy that emit energy to millions of planets within each stars solar system. Each star in The Universe has on average four planets orbiting it, meaning there's more planets than stars in our universe. Think of it like this, there's more planets in our universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth! As we focus on the present state of our solar system, The Universe continues to expand right before our eyes. In fact, as The Universe expands it actually becomes quit clear that The Universe itself is quite vast. It takes Light year's for the light of all stars to reach Earth, therefor what we see is a fragment of what that star looked like at that time when the light of that star was emitted towards earth. Remember one Light year is about six million miles, so if you see it how I see it every time you look at the night sky you see a reflection of the past. We might not be able to go into the future yet but at least we can see into the past, how cool is that?
