I see they finally counted all the particles in the universe, it's10 to power of 80(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

They also counted all the planets: 10 to power of 24

and also counted all the stars: 10 to power of 24

and also counted all the atoms in the Earth: 1.3 x 10 power of 50

Good work everyone!

Now, I'm trying my hand at some of this math: multiplying atoms on Earth (10^50) * number of planets (10^24) * number of stars (10^24) which is 1 x 10^98.....So I'm out by a tiny bit.....please help me figure out where my math is wrong, or, why the discrepancy, or, maybe I've calculated an even more accurate number of particles in the universe!???

Cheers and thanks!

# I Math doesn't add up: stars + planets < particles in universe?

Have something to add?
