The Universe is the totality of all space and time, including the physical laws and constants that govern it. It encompasses billions of galaxies, each containing billions of stars. It is believed to have begun with the Big Bang approximately 13.8 billion years ago and continues to expand today. Scientists believe that it will eventually stop expanding, collapse in on itself and end in a Big Crunch.”The Universe is made up of both matter and energy, which interact to form a complex web of cosmic structures such as galaxies, stars, planets and other celestial bodies. These structures are believed to form from an initial tiny seed of energy which undergoes immense expansion over time due to gravity. The force of gravity shapes the structure of the Universe by pulling matter together into clusters such as galaxies while still allowing for vast expanses between them. The study of the Universe has greatly advanced our understanding of our place in space-time, offering new insights into how we got here and what may lie ahead for us in terms of future exploration and discovery. Understanding how our Universe works has been made possible through advances in astronomy, physics, mathematics and other sciences which have opened up new ways for us to observe its immense depths while challenging traditional theories about its origins and evolution. As one continues to explore further into outer space they will find an ever-evolving landscape filled with mystery but also opportunity as humanity strives to understand how we got here while looking ahead at what lies ahead for us out there beyond our own planet Earth.
