    A galaxy is a group of many stars, with gas, dust, and dark matter. The name 'galaxy' is taken from the Greek word galaxia meaning milky, a reference to our own galaxy, the Milky Way.. Gravity holds galaxies together against the general expansion of the universe. In effect, the expansion of the universe takes place between groups of galaxies, not inside those groups. The Milky Way is the name of the galaxy we live in. In the night sky, it looks like a milky band of light, which is why the Ancient Greeks called it the kyklos galaktikos (“milky circle”). The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy, and has several bright starry arms.

      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. In Speculative Fiction featuring faster-than-light interstellar travel, reaching other galaxies from the Milky Way (or fictional local equivalent, like the galaxy far, far away) is often shown to be impossible or unfeasible, regardless of how fast FTL drive is.. Now, in Real Life, this is pretty Milky Way is about , light-years across but the nearest other spiral .

What is the stripe in the sky? Milky Way seen from the side. What type . The milky way is different then other galaxies because it has a milky color and twists in the middle and other galaxies dont have a planet with live me wrong if .

In summary, this book is a direct way to find out a lot about the Milky Way, and about spiral galaxies in general. For some of the observational concepts and conventions which professional optical Extragalactic astronomers use, there is virtually nowhere else to turn for simple and clear "bare bones" explanations.4/5(3).

Another clue comes when astronomers map young, bright stars and clouds of ionized hydrogen in the Milky Way's disk.

These clouds, called HII regions, are ionized by young, hot stars and are basically free protons and are both important marker of spiral arms in other spiral galaxies we see, so mapping them in our own galaxy can give a clue.

More galaxies. In this way, they’ve taken steps forward in explaining the Great Attractor – a giant concentration of mass that’s pulling our Milky Way and hundreds of thousands of other. Like other galaxies, the Milky Way is growing by absorbing small satellite galaxies.

It is currently merging with the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, a process that will be completed in about million years. In a previously unknown galaxy. Galaxies that are not spiral, lenticular, or elliptical are called irregular lar galaxies—such as the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds that flank our Milky Way—appear misshapen.

Both the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy (M31) are giant spiral galaxies in our local universe. And in about 4 billion years, the Milky Way and. Good: A book that has been read but is in good condition. Very minimal damage to the cover including scuff marks, but no holes or tears.

At the heart of the Milky Way is a supermassive black hole, just like all of the other galaxies, known as Sagittarius A*. This monster is more than 4 million times the mass of our Sun.

Students also learn about the 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. 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.

OUR MILKY WAY AND OTHER GALAXIES. What exactly is a galaxy. What happens when one explodes—or collides with another galaxy. Is it possible for one galaxy to “swallow up” smaller ones.

Do al galaxies have black holes at their center. The main difference between NGC and the Milky Way is the two galaxies' size.

While our galaxy is roughlylight-years across, our "twin" galaxy extends to. As with many things that talk about items on an astronomical scale, this requires a little bit of information to accurately process. Short answer: The Milky Way is larger than your average galaxy, but it is not nearly as large as the largest gala.

They formed at around the same time, through the same processes - a huge gas cloud cools, condenses into stars, these merge, the original stars die, these groups merge, and form bigger and bigger galaxi.Galaxies in groups and clusters frequently pass close to one another.

They sometimes collide and merge in spectacular fashion. The Milky Way is a dominant member of a .
