Earth's Location in the Universe

Earth → Solar System → Local Interstellar Cloud → Milky Way Galaxy → Local Group → Virgo Supercluster → Pisces-Cetus Supercluster Complex → Observable Universe → Universe


Earth - 12,700 km in diameter - Our planet

Solar System - 4 light-years across - Our home planetary system. At this point, the Sun's gravity gives way to that of surrounding stars

Local Interstellar Cloud - 30 light-years across - Interstellar cloud of gas through which the Sun and a number of other stars are currently travelling

Milky Way Galaxy - 100,000 light-years across - Our home galaxy, composed of 200 billion to 400 billion stars and filled with the interstellar medium

Local Group - 3 megaparsecs across - Group of at least 47 galaxies. Dominated by Andromeda (the largest), The Milky Way and Triangulum; the remainder are small dwarf galaxies

Virgo Supercluster - 33 megaparsecs across - The supercluster of which our Local Group is a part; comprises roughly 100 galaxy groups and clusters

Pisces-Cetus Supercluster Complex - 300 megaparsecs across - The galaxy filament of which the Virgo Supercluster is a part

Observable Universe - 28,000 megaparsecs across - The large-scale structure of the universe consists of more than 100 billion galaxies, arranged in millions of superclusters, galactic filaments, and voids, creating a foam-like superstructure

Universe - Minimum of 28,000 megaparsecs - Beyond the observable universe lies the unobservable regions where no light from those regions has reached the Earth yet. No information is available about the region, as light is the fastest travelling medium of information. However, since there is no reason to suppose different natural laws, the universe is likely to contain more galaxies in the same foam-like superstructure

If you don't go when you want to go, when you do go you'll find you've gone.

Scientist
Introduction
I'm curious.  I'm a starving, bad graphic artist.  I love running, golf, sailing, and skiing (alpine). Coffee! Looking to be a part of a team.

Bragging rights
Tore my PCL in Moab, UT while mountain biking; hung with several Nobel Laureates in 2011 in Germany; some how managed to be good at graphic art cartoons, but I can't pair the colors of my clothes together properly (even with the help of the color wheel).

While I enjoyed that my haircut was only $13, in the end, you get what you pay for. The woman cutting my hair appeared completely inattentive to how she was cutting my hair as she was jumping between the sides, top, and back without any apparent consideration. Upon finishing, I thought something looked funny, but it was not until later that I realized she completely forgot to cut the hair on the left side of my head. I would have gone back and asked her to finish it, but I did not want to let her near my hair again. Good Luck.
