The universe is thought to contain something like 100 billion galaxies, and each galaxy might contain something like 100 billion stars. Outer space is the void beyond any celestial body, such as planets and stars. There are only a few particles scattered here and there in space, whereas a cubic metre of the air we breathe on Earth contains millions of molecules.
