53 million light years from Earth heading towards the constellation Virgo and Coma Berenices, we will reach a cluster of galaxies called Markarian's Chain. There are about 2.000 galaxies in this cluster. Think to yourself that each of these galaxies is made up of billions of stars, and many of these stars have their own planetary systems. And that's just a small part of our sky.
