The important thing is never to stop questioning
An Astronomical Unit (AU) is the average distance between the Earth and the Sun, that is about 93 million miles or 150 million Kilometers. We have convenient units of measurement - that is Units, Tens, Thousands, Millions, Billions, Trillions, Quadrillion. Then we have the Googol, which is 10 to the power 100, that is the digit 1 followed by 100 zeros. Other names for Googol include 10 duotrigintillion on the short scale, ten thousand sexdecilion on the long scale, or ten sexdecilliard on the Peietier long scale. A Googolplex is the number 10 to the power googol, or 10 to the power 10 to the power 100. This is a really big number. Let’s try to imagine a Googolplex of AU’s - a very long distance in space away from us. >>> That point is space, a Googlolplex of AU’s away from us, is much closer to 0 than infinity. <<<
