As a researcher, I am constantly thinking about different sorts of stuff. And, when I do, I need to know the answer right away. This time, while I was looking at one of the most famous pictures of the universe, which was taken in 1995. This image reveals a view of the universe in which there is supposed to be at least 1000 galaxies. This image helps us to understand the vastness of the universe. However, I started wondering about How many galaxies are there in the universe precisely.
So, I went to the books. I found out that there are about two hundred billion galaxies contained within the universe. However, it seems that this information is wrong and space scientist believe that this number is ten times lower from what it really is. They came up with this realization through observation and through a mathematical method which helps researchers to know the number without having to use technology like a 3D map of the universe (Which, in fact, doesn’t exist yet).
Researchers also claim that we can’t know the exact number of galaxies because some of these galaxies are really far away from Earth and there is no technology to actually prove it.
