Astronomers from the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, have found evidence that the faintest satellite galaxies orbiting our own Milky Way galaxy are amongst the very first galaxies that formed in our Universe.
"We call this 'ringing' in the Milky Way galaxy 'galactoseismology,' which has been predicted theoretically decades ago.
Munich, Feb 18 (ANI): New observations using ESO's (European Southern Observatory's) Very Large Telescope have uncovered the missing primitive stars outside the Milky Way galaxy.
SAME IMAGES, NEW IDEAS McCaughrean says the new infrared images, which show that only about 11 EGGs contain stars, make it even more of a stretch to suggest that nearby massive stars and the ultraviolet radiation they emit limit the maximum mass of stars in the Eagle's pillars, let alone the rest of the Milky Way galaxy.
Characterizing the properties of the bulge stars can then provide important information to understanding the formation of the entire Milky Way galaxy and that of similar, more distant galaxies."
Washington, Jan 6 (ANI): In a new research, a team of scientists has determined that the Milky Way Galaxy is rotating about 100,000 miles per hour faster than previously understood, making it more massive with time.
The extragalactic cloud she discovered in 1963 had been found to be on a collision course with our Milky Way Galaxy. Some 20 to 40 million years from now, a million Suns' worth of hydrogen gas will plow into the galactic plane, likely setting off a huge burst of star formation in the Perseus Arm about a quarter of the way around the galaxy from us.
Tracing the history of star formation in the Milky Way galaxy, astronomers have turned to the wisdom of the ancients.
