Next time you’re on the beach, pick up a handful of sand. Now count the grains. (Oh, don’t really….it’d take forever.)
But here’s the factoid. Some heavenly galaxies, believe it or not, have a trillion stars in them. And there may be as many as 500 billion galaxies. So multiply 500 billion by one trillion and that is one large number of stars overhead. In fact, there are probably one hundred times as many stars in the sky as there are grains of sand on earth. That’s a lot.
And, please, while we consider this with appropriate awe, let’s have no cheap jokes about the size of Box’o'Rocks’ federal deficit.
