The Galaxy The star group to which our system belongs is called the Milky Way or just the Galaxy…
There are about 100 000 000 000 stars in the Galaxy!
But… The Milky Way isn’t the only Galaxy in space!
People can see the Andromeda galaxy, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds..
Where will people go after they’ve explored their own solar systems? Experts say that travel to other galaxies will only be possible on huge «spaceships»… They will travel through space for 100 or even 1000 years with many people on board…
Then, when a suitable planet is found, some of these people will stay there and begin a new life. Later, they’ll build new starships and go further to investigate the Universe!
