This Is Our Universe, Can You Comprehend It?
The universe is big. Just our own galaxy, the Milky Way, is 587 quadrillion miles in diameter.
It takes 250 million years for the sun to complete an orbit.
Milky Way: the galaxy in which the Solar System is located. It is a spiral galaxy that is part of the Local Group of galaxies. It is one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe.
Its name is a translation of the Latin "Via Lactea", in turn translated from the Greek "galaxias", referring to the pale band of light formed by stars in the galactic plane as seen from Earth.
