Technology has become an important part of our life and scientists are using this technology to discover new and great things. Out of them, space is always a fascinating area in which astrologers wish to discover more and more. Here is a list of some of the biggest things in the universe.

Biggest Things In The Universe

1. Largest asteroid- Ceres

Having a flat sphere with a diameter of 965 kilometers, Ceres is the largest asteroid in the universe till now and was discovered in 1801 on 1st January by Giuseppe Piazzi. Also known to be a dwarf planet, Ceres is having a length similar to that of California and has a pebbly core.

About one-third mass of the intact asteroid’s belt is contained by Ceres and almost 9 hours and 4 minutes are taken by it for one intact rotation. Some scientists believe that life can subsist on Ceres when the existence of water ice was known on it. Even though it is the largest asteroid but still it appears dim and is not so bright.

2. Largest moon- Ganymede

Found in 1610 January, with a diameter of 5267 kilometers, Ganymede is the largest moon in the solar system and is even larger than Pluto or Mercury planets. A part of the 63 moons present inside Jupiter is Ganymede and it was found by Galileo. Its vast size of it can make it a planet but its revolving feature of being around a planet not the sun has made it a satellite. Made from just rocks and ice water, Ganymede is known to have a weak but its own magnetic field. Able to be a residence for the aliens, Ganymede is having a thin covering of ice along with some oceanic surfaces.

3. Largest planet- Jupiter

Because of the massive diameter of 173762 miles, WASP-17b is the biggest planet known and was explored on 11th August 2009. Known to be the prime planet with a retrograde orbit, WASP-17b is present at a distance of 1000 light years from the earth. Around this planet, its stars move in an alternate direction from other stars of the universe. This inflated planet has the partial weight of Jupiter but the radius is doubled by that of Jupiter. On proper observations, the presence of sodium and potassium was felt there.

4. Biggest Star by radius- NML Cygni

Measuring about 1.4 billion miles or having a size of 1650 times more than the sun, NML Cygni is the largest red hyper massive star in the universe and is also named V1489 Cygni. Fund in 1965, this star is present at a distance of 5300 light-years from Earth, this star is very glowing. On keeping it at the core of the solar system, this star has the capacity to engulf five planets in it namely Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Jupiter. This dim star having red color is cooler having the dust and molecules of water, HCN, SO, CN, SO2, or CO can only be viewed with a telescope.

5. Largest galaxy- IC 1101

Around 6 million light-years distant galaxy known as IC1101 is the biggest galaxy in the entire universe. Being 50 times bigger than Milky Way, IC1101 was known to be created by the clash of many other galaxies and has more than a hundred trillion stars and dark material inside it. Also renowned as A2029-BCG, this galaxy was explored in June 1790 by Frederick William Herschel. With the presence of so many stars in it, this galaxy appears very bright and shining. Some stars of this galaxy seem golden-yellow being even older than the sun while some have high metal content.

6. Biggest Black Hole- S5 0014+813

S5 0014+813 is known to be the enormous black hole of the universe and has a diameter of 147 billion miles with 40 billion times more weight than the Sun. Located at a distance of 12 billion light-years from Earth, this hole is able to exercise weight equating to 4000 times the Sun’s weight. It is known to be the sixth brightest and the most shining object in the entire universe because of the presence of a high quantity of matter at its center.

7. Biggest Void- Canes Venatici

Canes Venatici Super void is known to be the biggest void of the universe with a diameter of 1.3 billion light years and is also known as Giant Void. Made up of groups of noninteracting 17 galaxies, Canes Venatici Supervoid opposes the fact that the universe is identical in appearing at the large scale given by Einstein. Explored in 1988, the density and gravitation interaction among its various clusters is extremely low.

8. Biggest Quasar Group- Huge-LQG

Quasar is actually the nuclei of galaxies in the universe which go through intense brightness due to which it is visible across a great distance. In 1982, a large of quasars joined together to form a large quasar group or LQG. With the highest width of 4 billion light years, Huge-LQG is the biggest Quasar Group in the universe. To cross this cluster of 73 Quasars, light also takes 4 billion years. Yes, the scale of LQG can’t be calculated but it is definitely the largest structure known in the world. Not only its size but this LQG challenges cosmological principles which are accepted worldwide.

9. Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall

With a massive diameter of 10 billion light years, Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall is the biggest thing present in the intact universe. Having extremely big size and age, it is the gravity that is holding this cluster of galaxies. It was discovered in 2013 by some astrologers who were actually looking for Gamma Ray Bursts.

That is why it is also known as the Great GRB Wall. According to Physics, the most powerful radiations are the Gamma Rays, and their high radiations are responsible for collisions of stars and many explosions. Its rays are so powerful and intense that only in some seconds release incredible energy which ultimately results in the explosion of the stars into black holes.

10. Largest Cosmic Structure: Giant GRB Ring

With a diameter of 5 billion light years, Giant GRB Ring is a ring found by astrologers which contain nine gamma ray bursts. It is circular and is the only object for which special distribution in-universe is known. GRB is the second-largest known cosmic structure and was discovered in July 2015. Scientists believe that GRB can release energy in a few seconds and for the same amount of energy, the sun requires over 10 billion years.
