How long would it take to count all the stars in the Milky Way Galaxy?
If you attempted to count the stars in a galaxy at a rate of one every second, it would take around 3,000 years to count them all.
There are approximately 200 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy, which means it would take 200 billion seconds, or 33 billion minutes, or 55 million hours, or 2.3 million days, or 6,341 years.
Unfortunately, there is not enough time in your life to count all the stars in the Milky Way Galaxy at the rate of one star per second – since it would take 6,341 years.
Put it in another perspective, the average person lives to 68, so give that information it would take 93 people counting at the rate of one star per second ALL their life to count every star in the Milky Way Galaxy.
