The universe is more crowded that we thought: Hubble images reveal there could be a TRILLION galaxies - ten times as many as previously thought



More than a trillion galaxies may be lurking within the observable universe.
In a new study, astronomers looked at data stretching back roughly 13 billion years to calculate the number of galaxies, finding that the 100 billion previously estimated may actually be 10 times too low.
The findings suggest so many exist that, essentially, every point of the sky contains part of a galaxy, but 90 percent of these are hidden from our view, being either too faint or too far away to be seen.
