This universe is a very strange kind of place. The empty spaces in the universe are immeasurable. The distance from our sun to the nearest star is 4.2 light years. This is in spite of the fact that we live in the very crowded part of the universe, namely the Milky Way which is a collection of about 300,000 million stars. About thirty million similar collections are known to exist in the universe.
