Aaron Hai-risonj 13, Hollywood, Calif. One" of the things man has always been curious about is: where are we in the universe? Are we the center of the whole universe (as people believed in ancient times)? What is out there in space and what relation does our earth have to it? The result of obtaining more knowledge about the universe has been to make the earth's positior in it seem very small indeed. We know the earth is only a tiny speck when compared with many of the objects moving through the vastness of space. We know the earth is only one of several thousand bodies in the solar system, and is not very, large when compared to other bodies in it. And we know the solar system is only part of a larger system called the Galaxy, or Milky Way. A galaxy is a great group of bil lions of stars and clouds of dust and gas. We call the Milky Way our Galaxy. It is our group of bil lions of stars, and beyond the boundaries of our galaxy there are millions of other galaxies. The Milky Way is that band of light that can be seen stretching across the sky on a clear, moonless night. It is shaped something like a giant watch. It Is so large (hut a man traveling at the speed of light, six million million (6 followed by 12 zeros)- miles in a single year, would Uike 100,000 years to go lrom one edge to the other. Like ail galaxies, thp Milky Way contains billions of stars and clouds of dust and gas, The central part is shaped something like a sphere and Is ; surrouijded $>y » great flat disk of stars. All o{ the r? jn (he Galaxy ^re sgn$ ( some smaller than and some hundreds of times larger than our sun. Astronomers believe that the Galaxy rotates, completing one revolution every 200,000,000 .years Even though our Galaxy- is so vast, it is only a part of a stil greater system. Beyond the Milky Way are millions of other galaxies, possibly about 75,000,000 other galaxies! Many of these are similar to our Galaxy in structure and size. The one nearest to, our own galaxy is 1,000,000 :light 'years away. • KUN TIME The Chuckle Bos Jack: I know the name of the capital of North Carolina, Bill: Really? Jack: No, Raleigh.
