Aug 21,  · A galaxy is not the universe, which is much bigger and contains all the galaxies. Our galaxy is called the Milky Way. It is about 12, light years across (1 light year = almost trillion miles). It is thought that billion stars are within the Milky Way. Compared to other galaxies, the Milky Way is actually a middle-sized one. The ‘Great Attractor’ is a diffuse concentration of mass million light-years away, that’s pulling our galaxy, the Milky Way, and hundreds of thousands of other galaxies towards it. CSIRO’s Parkes telescope, or “the Dish”, is a metre radio telescope located in New South Wales, Australia.

Feb 21,  · Sometimes galaxies get too close and smash into each other. Our Milky Way galaxy will someday bump into Andromeda, our closest galactic neighbor. But don’t worry. It won’t happen for about five billion years. But even if it happened tomorrow, you might not notice. Galaxies are so big and spread out at the ends that even though galaxies bump. The Milky Way has grown by merging with other galaxies through time. It is currently acquiring stars from a very small galaxy called the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal, as well as gobbling up material from the Magellanic Clouds. The Milky Way moves through space at a velocity of about kilometres per second ( miles per second) with respect.

Sep 25,  · The Milky Way contains the sun, Earth, and other objects in our solar system. It also includes hundreds of billions of stars besides the sun. Huge clouds of gas and dust lie throughout the galaxy, and they constantly form new stars. The Milky Way is so massive that about 10 smaller galaxies orbit it like satellites revolving around a planet. shapes and sizes of other galaxies in our universe as they learn how to classify them. The math problems cover basic scientific notation skills and how they apply to working with ‘astronomically large’ numbers. It also provides exercises in plotting points on a Cartesian plane to .

Galaxies Behind The Milky Way. Scientific America. October they reported that the Milky Way, our galaxy, had a peculiar velocity of about kilometers per second. In other words, the Milky Way was hurtling about miles per second off the plumb of the big bang. Rubin in fact had suggested the same thing way back inbut her.

Scanned in China. Uploaded by Phillip.L Pages: New book chronicles the space program Did the Milky Way devour other galaxies to grow. the prospect of studying even more distant stars to learn more about the history of our own Milky Way. For hundreds of years, it was believed that our Milky Way was the entirety of the Universe.

In the early s, Edwin Hubble showed that many of the nebulae in the night sky are actually other galaxies of stars separated from us by vast gulfs of space.

(keep in mind that while the universe as a whole is expanding, individual galaxies (and gravitationally bound groups or clusters of galaxies) and their contents do not expand. That is why the average distances between galaxies grow with time, but objects such as people, Earth, the solar system, and the Milky Way Galaxy remain stable in size).

The band of light that you see isn’t actually milk, of course—it’s a galaxy. A galaxy is a huge bunch of stars clustered together in space. Our solar system—which includes the sun, Earth, and seven other planets—is part of this galaxy, called you guessed it the Milky Way.

Oct 10,  · New book chronicles the space program to understand how the Milky Way and other galaxies work, astronomers must deal with some complications.

will assemble a unifying theory for. Mar 17,  · Our Milky Way galaxy is a pretty typical large galaxy. Most of the stars are in a disk that is aboutlight years across in diameter and light years thick.

Most of the galaxies in the universe are actually smaller than the Milky Way. For example, most of the dozens of galaxies in our Local Group are at least ten times smaller in.Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is typical: it has hundreds of billions of stars, enough gas and dust to make billions more stars, and about six times as much dark matter as all the stars and gas put together.

And it’s all held together by gravity. Like more than two-thirds of the known galaxies, the Milky Way has a spiral shape. At the center of the spiral, a lot of energy and, occasionally.The very idea that other galaxies exist used to be controversial.

Even into the s, many astronomers thought the Milky Way encompassed all that exists in the universe. The evidence found in that meant our Galaxy is not alone was one of the great scientific discoveries of the twentieth century.
