Our (the Virgo Supercluster's) approximate location in the Observable Universe. The smallest unit of distance in theoretical physics is the Planck length, at a millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a centimenter, and is about the length of a string in string theory. The volume of the Universe is approximately 47 octodecillion vigintillion vigintillion cubic Planck lengths, or 47 with 183 zeros behind it, cubed. I love big numbers.
