We all live in a world called the Milky Way, but we can slightly see it.
To assess the full range, we’ve to look at it from the side. That is why we only have a small portion of the big picture available to cover. But indeed the bitsy quantum of information we have collected so far is simply amazing.
Then are the top 16 nearly inconceivable data about the Milky Way.
- The Milky Way is about light- times in periphery with an elevation in the middle. But its shape is far from fully flat and looks a little malformed.
- According to scientists, there are about 200 billion stars in the Milky Way. For comparison, the largest world known to us, IC 1101, has over 100 trillion stars, which is 500 times further.
- In Greek tradition, the Milky Way was created when Hera revealed milk while suckling Hercules.
- The Milky Way has four helical arms that contain the most stars. All living effects (that we know of) live near the center of Perseus’arm.
- At the heart of the world is a supermassive black hole that’s millions of times deeper than our sun. Earth is about light- times down from this cosmic good.
- While the Solar System is moving at an average speed of km/ h, it’ll take about 230 million times to fully circumvent the Milky Way.
- Astronomers believe that the stars, globes, asteroids and dust we see make up only a tenth of the total mass of our world.
The remaining 90 is the so- called dark matter.
- It’s estimated that seven new stars are formed in the Milky Way every time. They’re born from gas and dust, which in turn are the remnants of exploding stars.
- The collision of the Milky Way and Andromeda worlds is ineluctable. The good news is that it’ll take about4.5 billion times. And since the viscosity of stars in these worlds is veritably low, they’re more likely to simply pass through each other.
10-These two worlds are part of a group of further than 54 worlds called the Local Group.
The largest world is Andromeda, the Milky Way is the alternate, and the Triangulum Galaxy in the third place.
11-All stars in our world account for only about 3 of their mass.
- Despite the billions of stars out there, you can see no further than of them with an ordinary telescope.
- Our earth is located in the center of the inhabitable zone of our world. The near to the center of the world, the stronger the cosmic radiation.
- Due to its huge mass, our world frequently attracts stars from other lower groups.
15. Scientists estimate that our macrocosm has been around for lower than 14 billion times. In this case, the age of the Milky Way is estimated to be13.5-13.6 billion times, which is about the same as the age of the macrocosm.
16. The Milky Way was not always a beautiful twisted curl. It had to absorb innumerous worlds in order to come this shape.
