"Prologue - Scene 1 - Our Galaxy - 'The Milky Way'
Eons and eons and eons ago - no one really knows the beginning or the end of this story - The astronomers tell us about the starts - how many - how far away and their positions and movements sizes. Our Galaxy 'The Milkway' is made up of billions and billions of stars - our Sun is one of these - it is not the biggest - nor is it the smallest - it is just a medium size star - but for us it is the best because without our sun there would be no life.
Galaxies - millions of stars, big, little, medium
Time - ? Place - Milky Way
Action - in space - before time as we count it - no life."
