Scientists puzzled for decades as to why their equations did not explain the observed universe and why the infinitesimally small scale did not match the astronomically large universe ? Then then factored in Dark matter and it's polar opposite Dark energy and then computer simulations make sense BUT it's all theory, since Dark material cannot be observed but its effect on visible celestial bodies confirm their existence through billions of pieces of data extrapolated by astronomers number…

Actually, this isn't just one photograph -- it's a composite of 31 different images, taken in the shadow of the solar eclipse that passed over Asia and parts of the Pacific for 6 minutes and 39 seconds.    That's the longest solar eclipse anyone on Earth will witness this century; a longer one isn't coming until 2132.

Best Eclipse Photo Ever!

How big is the universe?   This infographic, designed by Number Sleuth, visualizes the size of the universe and its contents by allowing you to scroll down from the very largest known objects to the smallest and compare their relative sizes. Each row in the graphic represents a “level” and the blue funnel represents you zooming from one level to the next, going from larger to smaller.
