Ja der ist wirklich gross - fast schon gigantisch! :)

One of the world's largest airports, I guess.

Does anybody know exactly which is the largest (according to amount of space)?

King Fahd Airport in Saudi Arabia. It covers an area of 780 square kilometers. Where is oil ("black gold"), there is money!

No problem with so much amount of space available.
I think they bought just enough fence to be the largest :wink:

Not to change current topic but youmay want to read this?

Volunteers would sign on to the Web site, http://www.galaxyzoo.org/ ,complete a brief tutorial and pick through one galaxy after another. The galaxies would be identified by several people to guard against errors and pranks, and scientists would rule on any disputes.

Sighting Opportunities are available to be found.
It's just watching the bright dots fly by, but when you think about it...I think it's more amazing than dark matter - someone is up there!

There are other solar systems

Another Cancri [solar] System


Image

This artist's concept shows four of the five planets that orbit 55 Cancri, a star much like our own. The most recently discovered planet, and the fourth out from the star, looms large in the foreground. It is at least 45 times the mass of Earth, or half the mass of Saturn, and it orbits the star every 260 days. The system's three known inner planets can be seen in the background around the glowing star, while its most distant planet is not pictured. Fifty-five Cancri has produced a larger number of massive planets than our solar system.

The colors of the planets in this illustration were chosen to resemble those of our own solar system. Astronomers do not know what the planets look like.

NGC 602 and Beyond
Near the outskirts of the Small Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy some 200 thousand light-years distant, lies the young star cluster NGC 602. Surrounded by natal gas and dust, NGC 602 is featured in this Hubble image of the region. Fantastic ridges and undulating shapes strongly suggest that energetic radiation and shock waves from NGC 602's massive young stars have eroded the dusty material and triggered a progression of star formation moving away from the cluster's center. At the estimated distance of the Small Magellanic Cloud, the picture spans about 200 light-years, but a tantalizing assortment of background galaxies are also visible in the sharp Hubble view. The background galaxies are hundreds of millions of light-years or more beyond NGC 602.
