Bad Astronomy A new paper just published in the prestigious Astrophysical Journal makes a stunning claim: There are 10 times as many galaxies in the Universe as we previously thought. At least. The total number comes in at about 2 trillion of them. Now, let me be clear. This doesn’t meant the Universe is 10 times bigger than we thought, or there are 10 times as many stars. What the astronomers did was look at extremely deep images of the Universe taken in surveys, for example the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. That’s a lot of galaxies. Surveys like the UDF are limited. The astronomers who did this research had an interesting problem. The answer is two-fold. Those numbers change with distance. At the same time, these faint galaxies are easier to see close to us, and harder farther away. They calculated this for all kinds of galaxies, right down to really small ones with about a million times the mass of the Sun. And that’s how they found that there are at least 2 trillion galaxies in the Universe.

The Science Network Games@NOAA Mapping History | DocsTeach: Activities: Create Choose a set of documents to locate on a historic or outline map. Plot primary sources around the map and ask students to form geographic conclusions; ask students to analyze documents and position them on the map; or use the drawing tools to visualize geographic or manmade features. Learning Objectives and Historical Thinking Skills Mapping History activities teach students to use geographic information and information gleaned from primary sources to formulate historical conclusions. Mapping History activities teach students to use geographic information and information gleaned from primary sources to formulate historical conclusions. Mapping History activities can help students visualize geography and understand the themes of place and location. A teacher may choose a historical map or a blank outline map as the background for the activity. Students can practice forming historical conclusions about geographic regions through Mapping History.
