Do you know how awesomely, mind-blowingly big things in space can get?
VY Canis Majoris, a red hypergiant star, is 2.8 billion (yes, billion) kilometers in diameter. That’s on the order of 1,800 times the size of our Sun, and is so big that it would take 1,100 years to circle it once in a commercial jet. That’s big.
Mind = blown.
