Based on current estimates, there are between 200 - 400 billion stars in our galaxy (The Milky Way). There are possibly 100 billion galaxies in the Universe. So taking the average of our galaxy, gives approximately 3 x 1024 stars. So about 3 septillion. This has been equated to the same number of grains of sand that are on Earth.

One source (BBC) stated that there are about 1,000 stars to every grain of sand on Earth!! There are an estimated 100 to 200 billion galaxies.

So taking a conservative number of 100 billion stars per galaxy gives an approximate total of 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars. (Which is 10 sextillion)

The newest estimates gained by the Hubble space telescope places the estimate of 500 billion Galaxies each with about 300 billion stars for each galaxy.

is it any or many????????

This is not a question. There are hundreds of stars in the Universe. Some stars even form many constellations.

Present knowledge indicates that the sun is a second generation star and that there are some thrid generation stars in the universe.

There are billions of billions of stars - which is what our Sun is - in the universe, and STILL the universe is mostly empty.

trillions If our galaxy with 2*1011 (two hundred billion) stars is an average size galaxy. and there are as many galaxies in the Universe as there are stars in our galaxy, then there are possibly 4*1022 stars in the Universe. But that is just a guess. There are most certainly more than 1018 stars.

galaxy - it is a cluster of many million stars universe - it is acluster of many million galaxies

If you mean asteroids within our Solar System, then stars. In the Universe, there will be many more asteroids than stars.

There are over 100 billion galaxies (100 billion+ stars per galaxy) in the universe.

Stars are scattered all across our universe but guess what? there are no stars in our solar system besides the sun!

The sun,jupiter,uranis,saturn,neptune and many other planets and stars in the universe. The sun,jupiter,uranis,saturn,neptune and many other planets and stars in the universe.

No. The universe contains billions of galaxies including our own, and each galaxy contains billions of stars.

Universe,because the universe includes the world(or Earth)and many other galaxies,planets,stars and much much more.

A galaxy contains billions of stars. A universe contains billions of galaxies.

No, there are many stars that are hotter than the sun.

Stars are made of hydrogen and helium, Galaxies are made of stars, a Universe is well, everything by God.

One recent study suggests there may be over100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (or 100 sextillion)stars in the the universe.

The stars in the Ptolemaic model of the universe move on or are attached to a celestial sphere.

Billions of stars in the same region of the universe are called galaxies.

Several billions of billions.

Perhaps the most significant is the earths place and importance in the universe.There are many, many other things we have learned the distance to stars, the diversity of stars and the age of the universe.

No. For a start, there will not always be stars. A time will come when the stars stop shining, and there is not enough material in the Universe to form new stars.No. For a start, there will not always be stars.

All stars and galaxies are in the universe.

no, the universe is bigger than a star. Obviously, the sun (a star) is in our solar system, which there are many stars in our galaxy, and many galaxies in our universe, there may be more that one universe contained in what I choose to call 'Infinity'.

There are billions of stars in our universe, many not visible to the human eye. You cannot create constellations of stars we cannot see. While we have many constellation we can see, not all stars are apart of one.

Stars are considered the building blocks of the universe because,when a star dies,the gas it releases forms new stars.
