About This Quiz

It's very likely we will simply never know how many galaxies exist in our universe. The vastness of space is too great for humans to ever fully know, but what we do know is awfully impressive already. If there are 200 billion galaxies out there and each one has 100 billion stars like our own Milky Way, then you can just try to imagine how many stars are out there in the universe.  

Once you try to wrap your head around that, you can try to imagine how many planets there must be orbiting each and every one of those stars. It's literally impossible to picture in your head, but it sure is interesting to try.  The universe is just really, really big.

We know our own galaxy is pretty impressive. But what about all those other galaxies? They seem pretty interesting too.  Maybe we don't know them all that well, but we do know a few things. Many of them have some unique characteristics that make them different from our own and each other. Like people, galaxies have a lot going on.  Maybe one of those distant galaxies really clicks with who you are on a spiritual level. If you want to know which galaxy matches your soul, why not take the quiz and see what's out there?
