hubble deep space

In this picture taken by the Hubble Space Telescope there are approximately 10,000 galaxies.
Each of those galaxies contains around ten million stars. The average star is roughly a million times the size of Earth. And yet, even with all that, the universe is more than 90 percent empty space. All that in this tiny photo - a photo that covers only one thirteen-millionth of the entire night sky.
"The heavens declare the glory of God..."
