* * * The Simple Cost of the Universe * * *

First, consider a Huge stack of Money.

 Bigger than U.S.A.

"The Huge stack of $100s"... Australia covered 1 inch deep in $100 bills would be:

3.3 million mi2
( 5280 ft )2
$25,000
$ 20.9 billion billion
 
mi2
.11 ft2
Australian Stack of $100s

( over a million times the GNP ) 

 ========================================================

 The simple cost of the Sun, is its volume ( pi/6 x dia3 ) times its

density (75 lb/ft3) times the cost of Helium and Hydrogen ($1/lb).

.524
(880,000 mi)3
( 5280 ft )3
75 lb.
$ 1
$ 3.9 x 1030
   
.....mi3
ft3
lb
Sun
 

 or... $ 3.9 million trillion trillion

 

or... The Huge stack of $100s 3 million miles high !

 ====================================================

 Then the simple cost of the galaxy would be, the cost of the sun's

solar system ($ 3.9 x 1030 x 2) times the number of stars (100 Billion).

 

 or... The Huge stack of $100s 101,239 light years* long !

* 1 light year = 5,878,675,958,000 miles

==================================================

 The universe contains a quarter trillion galaxies ???

 

( or... The Huge stack of $100s 25 Million Billion light years LONG ! )

 

Principal and interest in 15 Billion years:

log $ 1.97 x 1053 + 15 billion years x log ( 1.03) 

$ 8 with 192 Million Zeros.

 

( or... The Huge stack of $100s encircling the visible Universe 10 Million TIMES! )
