Of course I am a little different than most, I think of space when someone mentions big numbers. Remember back when the Hubble Space Telescope took its famous "deep field" picture. It had to be a very long exposure time to get a picture like this and could only be done from space. Why? Because the Earth rotates and ground based telescopes can only stay focused on an object or area for a limited length of time whereas from space, it can be infinite. Here is the old deep field picture:
Let's talk numbers. There are more than 10,000 galaxies visible in this photo alone. That alone boggles my mind but this picture was only a very tiny bit of the sky. So there must be hundreds of millions or billions or trillions or. . . of them. Each galaxy holds millions of stars. Most stars have planets and a small percentage of them could be conducive to life. There just has to be some form of life out there somewhere. What do you think? The trouble is, the distances are just way too great to ever find out. Now, you all have a great day, it is Friday you know.
