Stars in our galaxy

Trivia Question:

Which is more numerous: The stars in the Milky Way galaxy or the trees on Earth?

Trivia Answer:

There are more trees on Earth than stars in the Milky Way galaxy.

Astronomers estimate there are about 100 thousand million stars in the Milky Way alone. Outside that, there are millions upon millions of other galaxies also!


However, according to a study published in the journal Nature, it is estimated that there are 3.04 trillion trees worldwide. Although this might seem like an extremely huge number, it actually isn’t when you consider how many fewer trees there are now in 2022.


So congratulations if you choose the correct answer of there are more trees than stars in our galaxy!
