      That’s a really hard question to answer, purely because there’s a lot of the universe we know nothing about. However, the most common element found throughout the universe is Hydrogen, and then Helium after that. But even that is only a tiny part of the universe. There is lots of stuff out there that we simply cannot see, like ‘dark matter’. We’re still really early on in our discovery and understanding of what the universe is made of, but hopefully we will get lots of interesting answers and discoveries in our lifetime!
