How Big is the Universe?

The observable Universe is greater than 12 x 109 light years in radius.

(12 x 109 years)(365 days) (24 hr) (60 min) (60 sec) (3 x 108m ) ( 1 km )

( year ) (day ) ( hr ) ( min ) ( sec ) ( 103 m )

= 2 x 1021 km !!!! (20000000000000000000000 km)

That’s big!

the milky way
The Milky Way
  • As a galaxy, the Milky Way is actually a giant, as its mass is probably between 750 billion (750000000000, 750 x 109) and one trillion (750 x 1010) solar masses, and its diameter is about 100,000 light years
slide3
The Milky Way is a gravitationally bound collection of roughly a hundred billion stars. Our Sun is one of these stars and is located roughly 24,000 light years (or 8000 parsecs) from the center of our the Milky Way.

the sun
The Sun
  • The Sun is an ordinary G2 star, one of more than 100 x 109 stars in our galaxy.
  • Diameter: 1,390,000 km.
  • Mass: 1.989 x 1030 kg
  • Temperature: 5800 K (surface)
  • 15,600,000 K (core)
  • The Sun is the largest object in the solar system. It contains more than 99.8% of the total mass of the Solar System (Jupiter contains most of the rest).
the earth
The Earth
  • Orbit: 149,600,000 km (1.00 AU) from Sun
  • Diameter: 12,756.3 km
  • (0.0000000015 light yrs)
  • Mass: 5.9736e24 kg

klaque
Klaque
  • As previously mentioned, The mass of the galaxy is  2 x 1042 kg. The mass of the sun,  2 x 1030kg. The mass of earth,  6 x 1024. Kg. The mass of Klaque: 0.05 kg.

Some erythrocytes
  • An erthyrocyte (RBC) is about 7.5 um (1 um is 10-6 m in diameter.

(calculate that distance in light years!)

Inside each avian erythocyte is a nucleus which contains molecules of DNA
