Good article Universe has been listed as one of the Natural sciences good articles under the good article criteria. If you can improve it further, please do so. If it no longer meets these criteria, you can reassess it.

Minor scaling typo to be corrected, please.[edit]

In section "4.2 Size and regions", the following edit should be made:

Current, erroneous version "the diameter of a typical galaxy is 30,000 light-years (9,198 parsecs), and the typical distance between two neighboring galaxies is 3 million light-years. (919.8 million parsecs)"

Correct version "the diameter of a typical galaxy is 30,000 light-years (9,198 parsecs), and the typical distance between two neighboring galaxies is 3 million light-years. (919.8 kiloparsecs)"

Observable Universe[edit]

I think there should be a warning in the beginning that whenever physicist talk about the universe, it is mostly the observable universe. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Icantevennnnn (talkcontribs) 17:27, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

I agree that scientists often talk about the observable universe; however, I see no need for such a "warning" in this article, because they also often talk about the Universe as a whole, that is, the concept of "all there is".  Paine Ellsworth  put'r there  15:52, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

"The Universe is all of space and time (spacetime) and its contents,[12] which includes planets, moons, minor planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space and all matter and energy.[13][14] The size of the entire Universe is still unknown[6] with the latest figure, calculated by Halpern and Tomasello after the data from European Space Agency's Planck satellite estimating it to be 90.68 billion light-years across, 0.7% smaller then previously thought.[15]

I am new to Wiki so not sure how to make this correction. The second sentence in this opening paragraph is incorrect. It should read: "Although the size of the entire Universe is still unknown[6], it is possible to measure the observable universe. Halpern and Tomasello, using data from the European Space Agency's Planck satellite, estimate it to be 90.68 billion light-years across, 0.7% smaller then previously thought.[15]"

It is important to make the distinction between observable universe and entire universe. With my correction, this becomes clear.
