1) The current size of the observable universe is around 1027 m.
The size of our Earth is 106 m.
Hence, if the universe is shrunk to the size of Earth, then mathematically this is 1/1021 of its original size. Hence, if we go mathematically then the size of Earth should shrink to a size of
This is the size of a nucleus.
Now, If we go by Physics if the universe actually shrunk to this size, then its gravity will be so immense that no matter can exist inside it as a solid entity. Hence, Earth wont exist as a planet and it would have been ripped apart into atoms and smaller particles.
2) Light from Quasar reaches Earth after 2 billion years. Hence, its distance is
