The Hubble telescope image above shows just one tiny section of our universe. It is dense with galaxies of which our own, the Milky Way, is but one insignificant dot. At this scale of course no planets are visible – even a pinprick is too massive in size to describe the scales involved.
Consider this: our galaxy (randomly select one galaxy from the picture as an example) contains some 100 billion planets.
There are in excess of 100 billion galaxies in the universe and this number is likely to increase to about 200 billion as telescope technology in space improves. (Livio, Space.com).
If one planet were to disappear, like, for example, our own, will it make any difference?
