One day on Venus is about 243 days on Earth, its trip around the sun (i.e. one year) is around 224 days on Earth. This basically means that Venus travels around all of the sun before finishing a complete rotation.

Math and science...a headache! Lol.

IC 1101 is 6,000,000 light-years in diameter and is roughly 60 times the size of the Milky Way. The Milky Way is just 100,00 light-years across. IC 1101 is estimated to contain upwards of one trillion stars!

Whoa! That's a lot of stars!

Weird! I for some reason do not remember learning this in all my space courses!
