The milky way Galaxy, and it has a weight of 890 billion times the mass of our sun.

That will figure is because of the Science reports, is estimated at 3.9 tredecillion pounds, or the number 1 followed by 42 zeros. The mass is equal to about 6 billion-billion-billion elephants in the science, the outlet reports.

It is a challenge to measure the mass of a star system is that we have to take, however.

Researchers have found that the tendency to “weigh” the study of the motions of the stars in the galaxies that can show you how to have the galaxy’s gravitational influence on the star.

“The disk of our galaxy, the milky way rotates, but not uniformly,” study co-author Fabio Iocco, an astrophysicist at the Imperial College in London, told Science. “When objects are at different distances from the center of the milky way galaxy are going around the city at different speeds.”

The researchers, who are reported to be in relation to their own previous work in this area, and they have been prepared. Their paper was made available on Monday in the arXiv database.

“If you’re doing it for a variety of distances, from the middle to the very, very far away, and you’ll get an estimate of the mass enclosed in the increase of the distance. So, you are able to draw not only the total mass of a mass distribution,” Iocco told Live Science.
