1. What is a galaxy?

A galaxy is a large system of stars, gas, and dust held together by gravity. It also contains other celestial objects such as planets, moons, and comets.

2. How many stars are there in a galaxy?

The number of stars in a galaxy can vary greatly, but on average, there are around 100 billion stars in a typical galaxy.
