About This Quiz

No one can say with any precision just how many galaxies exist in the universe because it's literally impossible to observe the entire universe.  That said, speculation varies widely, but the one thing everyone agrees on is that there are a lot of them. Like, a lot. Some estimates are up as high as two trillion. That number is so big that, while you can say it and write it out, it's pretty much impossible to even imagine in practical terms. Has anyone ever seen two trillion of anything, ever, in a way their brain could hope to comprehend? Not at all. And that's just galaxies! If you want to know how many stars there are, some scientists have estimated that there are over one quadrillion.

So what's the point of all these huge numbers? With all those galaxies out there, each unique and different in its own way, surely some of them have to have some of the same qualities that you have, wouldn't you think? Of course, you would. In fact, we bet that if you answer the questions in this quiz, we can tell you just what type of galaxy you actually are. There's only one way to know for sure - take the quiz!
