    If you swing hard and miss, it hurts a bit.

On the other end of the stellular spectrum, it was reported this week that the Hubble telescope detected a vanishing supermassive star approximately 22 million light-years from Earth. The phenomenon has never before been witnessed, but it's likely to be an unnova, the direct collapse of a large star into a black hole without the supernova explosion. Now you see it. Now you don't.

Talk about feeling tiny. IC 1101 is the largest galaxy in the observable universe. The supergiant elliptical galaxy is 1.04 billion light years from Earth, and measures a whopping 6 million light years across. It contains an estimated 100 trillion stars. By comparison, the Milky Way is a measly 100,000 light-years across, and contains ~100 to 400 billion stars.

The European Southern Observatory has photographed a region in the Milky Way that is 7000 light years away. The very large (3 gigapixel) image shows three nebulas, Eagle (center), Sharpless 2-54 (right), and Omega (left). The image was created by stitching together dozens of photographs taken by the VLT Survey Telescope in Chile. The Eagle contains the infamous Pillars of Creation.

The universe is comprised of hundreds of billions of galaxies. Rather than being randomly distributed through space, the galaxies form clusters. Clusters are grouped into larger structures called superclusters. Superclusters are gravitationally linked into walls (a subtype of filament). A filament is the largest know cosmic structure, taking the form of a thread that weaves itself between large voids in space. In the standard model of the evolution of the universe, filaments form along and follow strings of dark matter. Basically, the structure looks like a giant sponge.

The largest wall identified to date (2016) is the BOSS Great Wall, which is comprised of 830 galaxies spread across 1+ billion light years. It contains approximately 10,000 times the mass of the Milky Way, and is located ~5 billion light years from the Milky Way.

Turns out Mars is covered in toxic chemicals, so not too dissimilar to earth.
