Astronomers have revealed one of the most curious facts about the galaxy better to say they discover when our Milky Way will crash into the…
Hubble Telescope has captured an awesome image of the Triangulum Galaxy. The galaxy is three million light-years from our own Milky Way galaxy. The image is created from 54 different images which consists of 665 million pixels. The view is so large that it spans “an area more than 19,000 light-years across.”
The center of Milky Way image was created using observations from South Africa’s MeerKAT radio telescope, an array of 64 dishes across South Africa. “These collect radio waves from the universe, and in this case, they’ve been used to build a picture of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our galaxy, Sagittarius A*, 25,000 light-years away”, mentions IFLScience.com.
Scientists have found microscopic nanodiamonds surrounding three infant star systems in the Milky Way. Astronomers indicate that tiny diamonds account for the shimmer of cosmic microwave light that has puzzled researchers for 20 years.
Astronomers announced the discovery of thousands of black holes last months, at the center of the Milky Way. The data was provided by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. “This black hole bounty consists of stellar-mass black holes” which are estimated to be five to 30 times the mass of our Sun. These new black holes were discovered within three light years of the supermassive black hole at our Galaxy’s center, called Sagittarius A*.
NASA astronomers have a special news for us; they have discovered a new kind of neutron star out of the Milky Way galaxy. The data was provided by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile.
The Milky Way is a galaxy where the Earth lives. We can see thousands of stars from earth even with the naked eye, and a lot of stars by a telescope. But what do you think about? How many stars are there in the Milky Way? “It’s a surprisingly difficult question to answer. You can’t just sit around and count stars, generally, in a galaxy,” said David Kornreich, an assistant professor at Ithaca College in New York.
With help of new supervision of Atacama Large Millimeter Array(ALMA) radio telescope, settling down to the Atacama Desert, Chile, was found the huge star germ which weight exceeds by 500 times of our Sun. Now it is development of further growth. In the Milky Way didn’t find such star yet. This process will come to the end the birth of the new star which luminosity will be equal about 100 solar masses. There are two opinions of an origin of such massive stars. One of opinions says that the parental cloud breaks up to parts. In each part there is a kernel then each of them starts contracting, thereby forming a new star. In other opinion, the cloud contracts as a single whole. The matter of a cloud goes to its center and already some huge stars there start appearing.
