Examples of galaxies in a Sentence

  1. Cometan:

    I am one human amongst seven billion standing on a small planet in a quiet corner of a galaxy forgotten between countless other galaxies that make up the ever-expanding cosmos that’s so incomprehensibly immense that it would take me an eternity to understand its ultimate complexity.

  2. Chris Carilli:

    We are seeing P352-15 as it was when the Universe was less than a billion years old, or only about 7 percent of its current age, this is near the end of a period when the first stars and galaxies were re-ionizing the neutral hydrogen atoms that pervaded intergalactic space.

Carilli added: Further observations may allow us to use this quasar as a background ‘lamp’ to measure the amount of neutral hydrogen remaining at that time.

  3. Carl Sagan:

This plays a role in shaping the structure and distribution of galaxies. Theoretical researchers will need to update their theories now.

  5. Samantha Berek:

    Understanding the huge halos of gas surrounding galaxies is immensely important.
