How big is the universe?

Can any one guess how big is the universe?  The answer to this question can only be guessed because no one can exactly tell how big is the universe.

Our earth is only a small and tiny dot in space which is revolving around another bright and larger dot, the Sun.  The Sun revolves around the center of Milky Way galaxy.  Milky Way is one of the billions of galaxies that exist in this universe.  These galaxies form clusters and these clusters form super galactic clusters.  In this way it goes on increasing and there is no end.



Does the universe has an end or it is going on expanding? As per Big Bang theory, the universe formed with a big bang and is now expanding.  There is no way to understand how big is the universe.  The only unit for measuring distance of objects far away is the light year which is the distance travelled by light in one year (Light travels at speed of 3,00,000 Kilometers per second). One light year is approximately equal to 9.45 trillion kilometers ( A trillion is 1000 billions or 1 followed by 12 zeroes).  The nearest galaxy is Andromeda galaxy is about 2,500,000 light years away from us.  

The only way we can understand how big is the universe is by observing the light from as far as we can.  The Hubble telescope is one eye that can see the farthest point from us.  Just by observing the light from a far off place is not enough.  We need to find a way in which we can estimate the distance from where the light started.  This is achieved by use of cosmic candles, which are objects for which astronomers have a calibrated relation between distance and the brightness.  By using such cosmic candles, the farthest points of our universe have been explored by scientists.  Even then we cannot say how big is the universe but we can safely assume that the diameter of universe is 93 billion light years!!.

Interesting facts about Stars

The stars are huge balls of gas in outer space.  These stars are made from Hydrogen, Helium and other elements.  The star are very much far away from us and the sun is nearest star to us. Hence Sun looks like a huge glowing ball.  Sun has planets revolving round it.  Many stars also have planets revolving around them.  Here are some of the interesting facts about stars.


  • There are huge number of stars in this universe. Astronomers guess that there are 1 septillion ( 1 followed by 24 zeroes) stars in this universe.  But you can see around 3,000 stars with your naked eye.
  • Like animals and humans, stars also have their own life cycles. Stars pass through many phases and die. Stars explode when they die which is called as supernova. Very small percentage of stars explode.  Some stars end their lives by cooling down to become white dwarfs.
  • A Galaxy is nothing but a group of hundreds of billions of stars which are relatively close to each other.
  • There are more than 100 billion galaxies and each galaxy has an average of 100 billion stars.
  • Stars are of different sizes. Some stars are smaller than our sun while some of very huge that sun is only a small dot when compared to them. Some stars called as super giants have radius of about thousand times that of our sun.  Some stars are very small. These stars are called as neutron stars and has radius of only 6 to 10 kilometers.
  • Proxima Centauri is the closest star to the earth.  It is located at 4.2 light years away.  If you travel at speed of light ( 3 lakhs kilometers per second), it will take 50000 years to reach this nearest star.
  • The most biggest stars can be as much as 2 billion miles across. If one such massive star were in our solar system, it would cover upto 5 planets including our earth.
  • If you look at he Andromeda galaxy ( which is 2.3 million light years away), you are seeing the galaxy as it was 2.3 million years ago.
  • The stars with strong gravity become smaller and smaller with time and finally turn into black holes. Black holes have such a great gravity that even light cannot escape from them.
  • Hot stars give blue light while cool stars give red light.
  • Some of the stars are 6,00,000 times as bright as our sun.
  • The stars in out Milky Way Galaxy revolve around the center of the galaxy once in every 200 millions years.

The mysterious Nasca Lines

Have you heard about the Nasca lines?  These lines are also called as "Riddles in the sand" were discovered in 1927 and are the giant ground drawings etched across 30 miles of gravel covered desert near Peru's southern coast.   No one knows who has made these giant drawings on the ground.  It is definitely impossible for humans to make such drawings. 



Nazca lines are the lines etched in the surface of the desert pampa sand.  Nearly 15000 figures made of straight lines, geometric shapes and pictures of animals and birds.  Their pattern is only visible clearly from the air. 

These Nazca lines are drawings of several kilometers in length and 0.4 to 1.1 kilometers in width drawn in different shapes like animals, geometric shapes and trapezoidal forms.  You can see the figures of spider, monkey, astronaut, the dog, small lizard, the humming bird etc.


The Nazca lines are declared as "Archaeological World heritage Site" by UNESCO in 1994.  These lines are located in Peru coastal plain some 400 Kms. from south of Lima.  These lines were drawn on the surface of the ground between 500 BC and 500 AD.  The lines can be clearly visible from an air plane in flight.  

The Nazca lines are really a great mystery and no one knows how these giant pictures were draw.  Some people believe that these lines are the signs left by some aliens or the landing strips for UFOs.  


Here is a video about the mysterious Nazca lines.

    • Try to avoid usage of mobile phone in metal containers like elevators, air planes, trains and vehicles as it increases the electromagnetic radiations.
    • Avoid using wired headsets. Blue tooth head sets are better as they emit 1/100th of the Electromagnetic radiations of normal phone.

      Some interesting facts about Reptiles

      I hope all of you know about Reptiles.  Reptiles are the most important and diverse group in animal kingdom.  We find reptiles as fascinating because of their different type of behavior and physical attributes.  Let us see some interesting facts about reptiles.

      • We can see more than 8,000 species of reptiles on our planet and these reptiles live in every continent except Antarctica because it is very cold there.
      • The reptiles are one of the longest lived species on earth.  We can see tortoises which lived more than 150 years.   The Alligators can live up to more than 70 years.   Ball Pythons can live up to nearly 40 years.
      • Many of the snakes in this world are not poisonous.  About 500 species of snakes are poisonous but only 30 to 40 are only considered as harmful to human beings.   So less than 2% of all the snakes are harmful to humans.
      • Do you know that more Americans die because of bee stings than because of snake bites.

      • Do you know that the skulls of  snakes are made of small bones which are inter connected in a flexible fashion.   Where as human skull is a single solid piece.  So the snakes can expand their jaws and heads in order to eat prey which are larger than their heads.
      • The snakes shed their skin in relation to their growth rate.  You can see a young snake shed more often because they grow fastest during the first two years of their life where as a old snake will shed its skin less often because its growth rate is less.

      • Most of the snakes lay eggs.  But almost one-fifth of all the snakes give birth to young ones instead of eggs.  Rattle snakes are examples that give birth to young ones.
