THE MILKY WAY: This is our home in the Universe. The Sun at the center of our Solar System is just one star among hundreds of billions of stars within the Milky Way galaxy—many with the possibility of habitable worlds around them—and the Milky Way is just one of billions of known galaxies across the Universe! The vastness of the cosmos begs us to ask, What else is out there? Is there life elsewhere in the Universe? The endeavor of science is ongoing, and every day we better understand our place in the immense expanse of the Universe. Our exploration knows no boundaries. Image Credit: Janus Brink.
