Our Vast Universe

Want a better idea of how huge the universe is?  Take a gander at the biggest and most detailed image yet of the Andromeda Galaxy, our nearest galactic neighbor, which is 2.5 million light years away and estimated to contain a trillion stars.

Now think about how estimates have shown that there are more than 100 billion galaxies out there, each containing billions and billions of stars…

“Mind-boggling” doesn’t quite cut it.


Jason M. Vaughn earned a degree in Painting from KU, back in a majestic time called “the nineties.” In response to certain life events, he then drifted away from visual art—something he’d practiced since toddlerhood—and found himself addicted to books. Writing naturally followed. He’s published numerous poems and short stories, and his first feature-length screenplay,The Synth House Wife, won the 2012 Script Pipeline Competition. He is working now on a science-fiction book called Cerulean, which will hopefully CHANGE THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT…or at least be a good read.
