Hello: I have another distance astronomy question for you. You helped me with another question which I appreciate. I just cannot do the math required. There is a realm of the richest galaxies in the in the night sky. They are 50 million light years away. That is 6 trillion x 50 million???. What math equivalent is that??.I used 6 trillion as a L/Y last time. Thank you. Roly |

Hi Roly, Fifty million is 50,000,000. Six trillion is 6,000,000,000,000. Thus
6 5 = 30 and there are 19 zeros so this is
In Billions and More! I see that 1 followed by 18 zeros is a quintillion so
is 300 quintillion. Penny |
