    • Types of GalaxiesIrregular Galaxy: has no particular shape. They are very small and faint. Very little gravitational pull.
    • The Milky WayOur galaxySpiral galaxyHas a diameter of 100,000 light yearsOur sun is about 30,000 light years from the center.Revolves at a speed of 250km/s.Takes 200 million years to make one revolution.
    • Formation of the UniverseThe big bang theory- matter was all concentrated in an extremely small volumeOccurred 12-15 billion years ago.Galaxies are continuing to move outward.
