There are planets / stars that we cannot see the are as big as our solar system.

Keep this as a thought... Space is endless as the stars fill the void, God "Jehovah" has counted and named every one of them.

Well this is a little of topic, but did you know that many of the stars you see at night, have already burned out. Its just the light that is taking so long to get here.

they exploded.  and it takes millions of years to get here.  although the speed of light is SUPER SUPER SUPER SUPER fast, it is not anywhere near for us to see these stars blow up.

Well lets remember that a lot of this space stuff is only speculations that derive from theories.
And theories mean they have not been proven.

Some interesting astronomy facts:

The moon slows down the earth's rotation and eventually (after a few million years) the moon will only be visible from one side of the world.

When our sun becomes a red giant (in a few billion years), earth will be consumed by it.

Mass affects time, if you were to place clocks on different parts of the sun and start them at the same time, they would all read different times.

If you were pulled into a black hole, your body would look like a spagetti string and time would be so slow that you would appear to be frozen.

The universe used to be hundreds of degrees hot, now it is almost at absolute zero...which is −459.67 °F
