Search for Restuarants: within 380 Million Light Years

Turns out you really haven’t been anywhere.  Below is an infrared view of your local universe of galaxies and dark matter out to 380 million light years.  …  Yeah, that isn’t even everything.  The observable universe was thought to go 14 billion light years out (equaling the age of the universe), is now considered to go 46 billion (age + 32 billion light years of universal expansion)  and one estimate of what we can’t see puts the universe’s total diameter at 150 billion

Now consider how much you are paying for your apartment.  Square feet?  Let’s get off this rock!
