    A galaxy is any of the systems of stars and interstellar matter that make up the universe. Many such assemblages are so enormous that they contain hundreds of billions of stars. Galaxy clusters are gravitationally bound groupings of galaxies, numbering from the hundreds to the tens of thousands. Mar 15,  · Imagine the Universe: Galaxies.

    Galaxies come in many sizes. The Milky Way is big, but some galaxies, like our Andromeda Galaxy neighbor, are much larger. The universe is all of the galaxies – billions of them! NASA’s telescopes allow us to study galaxies beyond our own in exquisite detail, and to explore the most distant reaches of the observable universe. Why do galaxies gather in clusters? If the Universe is expanding, how can galaxies cluster? How are galaxy clusters structured and how do we know they contain dark matter? What component of galaxy clusters contains the most mass? Why is the gas in galaxy clusters so hot?
