SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said that a large asteroid will eventually hit Earth and his concern is that 'we currently have no defense' against it.

Latest news from serious astronomers who have earned my respect: There are almost certainly trillions of galaxies, with roughly 400 billion stars in each. And each one having a planetary system, with six or more planets around each.


Can you grasp the number? Say just one trillion. 1,000,000,000,000. AKA, a thousand thousand (million), a thousand of those, a billion. A thousand of those being a trillion. Times six planets. Do you have a clue, or are you blowing it out the lower end of your digestive tract?


Please get real, if that is conceivably possible. Thank you very much in advance.
