Scientists have recently found that the observable universe is much bigger than previously thought.

According to a new research, the observable universe has two trillion more galaxies than researchers thought in the past.
One of the major questions in astronomy is that how many number of galaxies are there in our universe


Astronomers had their analyzed, but they were terribly wrong. As per the  most accurate census, there are more than 10 to 20 times galaxies in the universe than we already believe.

The first count of galaxy was made  in the mid-90’s when profound field images from the Hubble telescope uncovered  myriad of galaxies barely visible,  up to not visible to naked  eyes.

Astronomers analyzed  that the total number of galaxies in the observable universe was between 100,000 and 200,000 million.

Sometimes, astronomers were not right.

An international team of scientists has shown that those numbers were are close to reality.

According to a research  based on data collected by the Hubble space telescope, the total number of galaxies in the observable universe could be between 100 and 200 billion, meaning that there can be  700 quadrillion stars. (BIG).

With everything taken into account Hubble uncover an expected 100 billion galaxies in the universe or so, however  this number is probably can be  increase to about 200 billion as telescope technology in space improves.

Keeping in mind the end goal to get to these enormous numbers,  astronomers began off with the deep space pictures captured by the Hubble telescope and conducted a detailed project to transform them into 3D enabling them to make a more accurate measurement of the number of galaxies  appeared  in the pictures.

Incidentally, however, 90% of galaxies in the detectable universe are too far away from us and scarcely emanate light to be seen with our present innovation.

To  make up for this large number  for mistakes, the researchers  used numerical models to deduce the existence of galaxies that Hubble is not  observable.

“It boggles the mind that more than 90 percent of the galaxies in the universe  presently can’t seem to be contemplated, said Christopher Conselice, a scientist  from the University of Nottingham, who drove the study. Who comprehends  what interesting properties we will discover when we watch these galaxies with the next generation of telescopes.”

Recently acquired information speak to a journey of 13,000 million years into the past.

Researchers found that galaxies are not consistently distributed throughout the history of the universe. It turns out that during the first billion years there were ten times more galaxies per volume unit,  however they were generally little, and barely visible, with masses like  satellite galaxies surrounding the Milky Way.

The results recommend that galaxies were merged as time passed by which eventually reduced their total number drastically.
