How vast is the universe? Well it's too great for most of us to fully comprehend, but when Simon puts things in perspective, it is possible to have a bit more understanding. In this offering, readers learn about the Big Bang and current competing theories about the continual expansion or perhaps the eventual contraction of everything. Stars are born and they die. The realization that there are at least one hundred billion galaxies in the universe, and that each of these contains about one hundred billion stars, gives one real pause to reflect on the possibilities of what is really "out there."
