The biggest known galaxy is IC 1101, which is 1 billion light years away in the ginormous Abell 2029 cluster. It contains 100 trillion stars and is six million light years in diameter.



    In this world where we serve oblivion
    with a blind pride and sure conviction
    creating plans to land a man on Mars
    grandiose schemes to conquer the stars
    eyes on horizons ever further afield
    believing, to us the universe will yield.
    Yet here on Earth we fail to see
    a chaotic world of human debris,
    our magnificent results thus far
    a planet dying from a human scar,
    oblivious that our plans sublime
    are mere litter scattered in space and time.
