I started with the mass of the sun which is arrond 10**33 gms. I took trillion(10**12) suns in milky way gallaxy, therefore, the mass of our galaxy is in the order of 10**45. I took a trillion(10**12) galaxies in the universe that should give a mass around 10**57 gms. When I talked to astronomers, they believe these numbers are very exaggerated. Then I proposed a mass of 10**56 gms and most agreed this number be in the ball park area.
