There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth.
That would equate to billions of galaxies.
There are only 5,500 in the picture the OP provided. It's absolutely mind blowing!!

I find it interesting that mankind is allways obsessed with how far our technology can take us or how far away we can observe. Like how deep we can go into the ocean or how far a walkie talkies range is. We could be possibly living in the most beautiful galaxy in the universe; and appreciate a picture moreso because its the deepest most far away shot taken yet.
Perhaps there is another race living on the boarders of the expanding universe and pointing a telescope our way, and simply saying isnt this the most beautiful picture of deep space ever?edit on 14-10-2012 by Foxy1 because: (no reason given)

Or maybe we are on a collision course towards Andromeda. We never know, it could be the opposite, thinking it's coming towards us, while we could actually be moving towards it.

Ive always wondered if we are just in a isolated part of space?
Maybe space could be layed out similar to towns/cities/country
We are in an isolated country part of the universe, but then you could go to another part that is rammed with life, maybe some solar systems with 2 or 3 planets that have life, maybe with another solar system full of life a years journey away, who knows?
