Currently, in our Galaxy, there are about 2500 open star clusters with members up to 24 ^ m and about 150 globular star clusters.

Currently, in our Galaxy, there are about 2500 open star clusters with members up to 24 ^ m and about 150 globular star clusters. Estimate the total number of open and globular clusters in our Galaxy. The interstellar absorption in the vicinity of the Sun is 0.002 ^ m per parsec.

Approximately 16,000 scattered (they are mainly in the disk of the Galaxy, and most of them are now hidden by interstellar absorption) and about 150 globular clusters (the fraction of clusters that fell into the plane of the disk and because of this is hidden by absorption is very small).

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
