If that happens, then it would be a black hole

In this galaxy, there's a mathematical probability of three million Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, three million million galaxies like this. And in all of that... and perhaps more, only one of each of us.

I'm a huge fan of the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, which states anything is possible in an infinite universe.

Alpha Centauri raises an interesting point – Alpha Centauri is actually two stars. This is not uncommon in a galaxy. The two stars orbit each other as a binary system, and those two stars together travel around the galaxy’s core. However, the two stars are really not very close to each other at all.

Another replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has reportedly caught fire in Minnesota. The news comes just days after a replacement Note 7 caught fire on a Southwest flight in Kentucky (seen in the picture above), and all four major US cell carriers told customers they could exchange all Note 7 phones, replacement or not.

Probably not.

But this is only one of hundreds of billions of galaxies in the Universe! We know this most convincingly through deep-sky observations of regions of the Universe where there happen to be no (or very few) galactic stars, gas, or dust in the way of our telescopes.

I would assume that the star is in a completely different (relative) place given the speed star systems are travelling because the galaxy is rotating AND the"fact" (read: I don't know if this is really a fact) that the solar system is oscillating through the galactic plane.

Yeah sure, why not.

Grains of sand are still pretty tricky to model as convincing-looking sand. And as much as we use grains of sand as a metaphor for the number of stars in a galaxy, stars and sand can be a pretty poor comparison if you take the metaphor too far. Galaxies may appear to be solid objects in our skies, with tightly packed clusters of stars, but in fact, galaxies contain huge amounts of empty space.

Its quite possible though science can't conclusively say so.

I think they do. Nasa does not have enough proof but logic says they must.
