The first time I saw a Hubble deep space image, with seemingly hundreds of galaxies, some as small as individual stars, it just blew me away. To think that each galaxy could contain as many stars as our Milky Way galaxy (200 billion) and that there could be as many as 200 billion galaxies, just became impossible to fathom. But what really totally stopped me in my tracks was trying to understand the space between the galaxies! It left me totally dumbfounded and humbled. Why is the universe so infinite?
