Infinity and Beyond

Our Milky Way galaxy contains approximately 200-400 billion stars, of which our little sun is just one. So then try to imagine 400 billion possible operating solar systems in our galaxy alone. For a perspective, there are an estimated 100 billion galaxies in the universe.  It begins to boggle the mind.
