The scale of the universe is almost beyond our imagination!
The universe keeps expanding (at 42.5 miles per second per megaparsec), and we constantly form new hypotheses about how it was created and what will happen next.
It was only late last month that scientists peered 50 million light-years away to find an extremely rare globular cluster, with far more mass than the Sun, that could birth stars and help explain how galaxies form.
Not long ago, we discovered the so-called “alien megastructure”:
KIC 8462852 is the star everyone is talking about since no one can explain the irregular patterns of light coming from the star located 1,500 light years away from Earth. Many researchers have speculated what could cause the enigmatic dips of light that are unlike anything seen before.
Interestingly, during an interview, Dr. Michio Kaku said that we could be looking at an alien megastructure build around the star.
There are so many secrets waiting to be unlocked out there in the vastness of space.
Here are some shocking comparisons about the size and scope of the universe that help put it in perspective.
After watching this video by BuzzFeedBlue, it is selfish to say that we are alone in the ENTIRE universe!
