SIZE OF THE UNIVERSE.
MIleN Are Too Insigninenant to le
Used Ira JIt Computation.
Whiile it is interesting to know the
distance of some of the stars in miles,
when statel1 In that way the numbers
are so large that they frequently con
vey very indistinct conceptions to the
mind. For this reason it is customary
to estimate stars' distances In "light
years." A light year is the distance
that light, moving at the rate of 180,800
miles per second, travels in one year.
This amounts in round numbers to
5,880.000,000,000 miles. The distance
f Alpha C'entauri Is 4.35 light years,
that o1' Sirius, the dog star, is almost.
exactly twice as great, or 8.0 lIght
rears. In other words, light reqluires
3.G years to come to us from Sirius.
andI these are among the very nearest
f the stars. Sonie whose parallaxes
inve becen rather estimated thani meas
Iredl appearedl to lbe situated at a dis
anice which light couldl not traverse
pi less than one or two centuries. The
treat star Arcturus, for instance, has,
ccording to Dr. Elkin, a parallax of
nly eighteen-thosandths of a second.
:ts distance must in that case b~e about
81 lIght years, or more than a thou
and million -million miles. And if its
listance is so great, then, siunce light
rarles inversely as the square of the
listance from its source, it can be
4hown that Arcturus must actually
live forth 5,000 or 6,000 tImes as much
Light as the sun yields.
Yet Arcturus is evidently much near
er than the vast majority of the stars
are. Not one In a million is knowni to
have a parallax large enough even to
lbe intelligently guessed at. There may
be stars whose light requires thousands
Instead of hundreds of years to cross
the space separating them from us.
We thus see that only a few noints
on the nearer shores of the starry uni
verse lie within reach of our measure
