Scientists estimate that there are at least 1 billion galaxies in the universe. They don't know for sure because no one knows just how big the universe is.

Space Station Coloring

I've often wondered what it would be like to spend some time in a space station. It must be great to see a variety of images out of the windows, but difficult to be so couped up.

      Hello Janis,Pretty cool lens you got here! I always enjoyed space related things, even as a youngster. When I was little, my mother used to buy me astronaut food pouches for Christmas, which I really enjoyed. Well anyway, I am new here and so far only have one lens, which I shall turn into more soon. It was good checking out your lens.Happy Squid Lens Making,Joe

      I did - sounds crazy in conversation but in 2007 I saw the earth from space as being only one small cell of the body of God. Science is limited by the belief that one needs to be an astronaut for space travel when access is there for all via the nonlinear :D
