Have you ever wondered just how big is the universe. It's really bigger than anyone can imagine, our minds can't comprehend just how big it is. To get an idea of how big things are take the earth and multiply the diameter by 109 and you will have the diameter of the sun. You might think this is large but it's actually a small star compared to some which could be as much as 2100 times bigger than our sun. If we could take a picture of the universe and blow the picture up to the size of the earth, you would not be able to see our solar system because it would be a speck so small it would be invisible to the naked eye.

Think about this there are more stars than there are molecules in the human body multiplied by the number of people on earth plus all the grains of sand on all the beaches of earth. wow that s a lot of stars, just how many planets would that be. so you think that's big. and you didn't even take into consideration the vast space between stars or the dark matter which is better than 99 per cent of the entire universe. The distances between some of these stars are astronomical.

So we have it down to really big, but we aren't through yet, what if you could go to the most distant place known to man, and stand there looking out in the direction you were traveling, what would you see. Would you see a wall of some sort keeping you from traveling any further, No if that was the case the universe would not be getting larger according to scientist. Well maybe at the edge of the universe there is a giant black hole sucking everything up. No if that were the case it would have to be black holes in every direction. Maybe you just fall off the edge into nothing but blackness. Maybe and this is a possibility maybe the universe is like the earth and is like a balloon being blown up and once you get to the surface you can travel all the way around and end up back where you started.

Another possibility to consider and this is my favorite, when you get to the edge of the universe which you never will because there is none. But lets say you went to the edge and looked out into space, what do you expect to see, you got it, you will see stars in every direction.
