It turns out that the universe, the inconceivably vast expanse of space we live in, is even bigger than we realized. According to a recent report from Space.com, the universe has at least 10 times more galaxies than previously thought.

If you’re keeping track, that means there could be up to 2 trillion galaxies in the observable universe — for now. That’s up from estimates of 100 to 200 billion. And that’s just in the observable universe.

“An international team of astronomers used deep-space images and other data from the Hubble Space Telescope to create a 3D map of the known universe, which contains about 100 to 200 billion galaxies,” theSpace.com article explains. “In particular, they relied on Hubble’s Deep Field images, which revealed the most distant galaxies ever seen with a telescope.”

After creating the 3D map, the researchers attempted to estimate where other galaxies that have not yet been seen by Hubble could exist. The relied on “new mathematical models” to arrive at their calculations.

“For the numbers to add up, the universe needs at least 10 times more galaxies than those already known to exist,” Space.com reports. “But these unknown galaxies are likely either too faint or too far away to be seen with today’s telescopes.”

The fact that the universe may be 10 times its presumed size left researchers wide-eyed and scratching their heads.

“It boggles the mind that over 90 percent of the galaxies in the universe have yet to be studied,” Christopher Conselice, a University of Nottingham in the U.K. astrophysics professor who led the study told Spacetelescope, the official website for news on the Hubble Space Telescope. “Who knows what interesting properties we will find when we observe these galaxies with the next generation of telescopes.”

The images the team of researchers used looked more than 13 billion years into the universe’s past, and shed new light on how it developed over time.

“This gives us a verification of the so-called top-down formation of structure in the Universe,” Conselice said.

Putting it into layman’s terms, Spacetelescope said, “These results are powerful evidence that a significant evolution has taken place throughout the Universe’s history, an evolution during which galaxies merged together, dramatically reducing their total number.”

The study also provided new insight on astronomical phenomena such as Obler’s paradox, which accounts for the night sky is predominately dark despite it being crowded with galaxies.

pick a number..any number..they all work..

  1. No one created them – they created themselves – very clever these galaxies and all from a tiny speck.

  2. Reblogged this on World4Justice : NOW! Lobby Forum..

  3. What if the stars and planets we see are nothing more then a hologram projected onto a domed roof 200-300 miles up?

    What if the flat Earth theory is correct?

    I spent two weekends watching dozens of hours of video’s on youtube and reading blogs about the flat Earth with the “mindset” that it was all a bunch of crap… meaning I was trying to “DeBunk It”.

    After two weeks of of this research online (failing to debunk it) I now am trying to find evidence to support a round Earth.

    The more I look the more supports us living in the matrix…

    • The flat earth theory is an illuminati intel psyop – so they can label anyone who gets to close to the truth as a flat earther conspiracy nut .
      Its obvious the earth is round – even to our ancestors .

      But the main thing it is used for is to disprove geocentrism by mixing the two
      theories and obfuscating the fact that they are two exclusive theories one of which is perfectly rational (geocentrism )and the other a receptacle for
      aliens.

      There is so much evidence that the earth is still and the universe spins round it – as hubble said the gravitational effects of a still earth and a spinning universe or a spinning earth and reasonably still universe are the same .
      Have a look at ” The church was right Galileo was wrong ”

      Spinning at 1000 mph at the equator would make the seas and air in continual violent turmoil .

      They dont want Galileo’s attack on biblical truth unwound .

      Thats why Hubble said he chose heliocentrism

      • readers should note that above is also nonsense. as it has been explained over and over: “geocentrism” based on relativity is fleeting. an observer on mars would observe the universe as being mars-centric, and observer in another galaxy would observe the universe being centered in that galaxy.

        just like the flat earth filth, geocentrism filth use lies to promote their agenda.

        • I would tend to believe Hubble , Hoyle and Einstein rather than laypersons . You can also prove geocentrism by using closer to home methods and simple logic.
          Those astronomers before Galileo were highly regarded and were not fools .
          The debates on both sides were not in the category of filth ? but called normal scientific debate

    • i’m really really disappointed in you red.

      you were unable to debunk flat earth nonsense? you were unable to debunk “evidence” like “how do rivers flow uphill to get over the curve of the earth?” seriously?

      you really thought that a child molester living in thailand had something to contribute to your consciousness? really?

      did it occur to you while you were spending “hours” over “two weekends” to search for something like “debunking flat earth” to check if what you were viewing was nonsense or not?

      you honestly didn’t notice that most of the memes put out by flat earth filth are 100% based on lies?

      normally, i’d say present some evidence and let us debunk it. but honestly, that would be an insult to seek and his blog.

      think i’m being rude? i dont fucking care. this is metaphorical face-slap urging you to snap the fuck out of it.

      • I don’t think you are being rude… you are just making your point of view, which is all we can do as people I guess.

        To me I can’t understand how the Earth could spin at 1000 MPH and NOT throw everything on it out into space. I mean the last time I got on a “merry-go-round” and spun it around as fast as possible it took all my strength to hold on and not get tossed off of it. Granted I was a kid at a drive-in movie theater back then, but I’m sure the effects are still the same.

        And I haven’t ever seen any curvature of the Earth in my lifetime, nor ever meet someone that meant building some bridge or whatever that factored in that curvature.

        As for space and the planets… I just don’t know? Maybe they are real… maybe not? I don’t have a clue there. However, I do find it odd how satellites in space can manage to stay intact with hundreds of thousands of small space debris NOT destroying it when traveling at 1000 MPH? Weird to say the least…

        Hmmm… not sure what the heck you are talking about with some child molester?

        But anyway, I don’t know the answer? There are some valid points about the Earth being flat that I can’t solve. I was told it was round and have believed that all my life. But now I have to question that as there are some questions that puzzle me that support a flat Earth.

        The only thing I’m sure of is that we are always being tricked and mislead about everything with our existence as humans on this planet. It’s a matrix too complex for me to have all the answers.

        • Stationery satellites must be at a certain height – so what keeps them up – the geocentrism theory says the gravitational pull of the spinning universe has the same effect on the satellite as a spinning earth and still satellite
          speaking in relative terms .
