Zone of avoidance is a cosmic field, darkened of our own galaxy, which makes difficult to observe celestial objects in space for scientists in this field of space. For the first time the term Zone of Avoidance was used by Richard Proctor in 1878. Our Galaxy Milky Way creates a Zone of Avoidance for astronomers and researchers.
New observations from the Herschel Space Observatory show a fantastic, twisted ring of dense gas at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. Alberto Noriega-Crespo of NASA’s Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena say that they have looked at this region at the center of the Milky Way many times before in the infrared, but when they looked at the high-resolution images using Herschel’s sub-millimeter wavelengths, the presence of a ring is quite clear.
Scientists were able to collect the largest digital camera ever built for a space mission. The camera consists of 106 individual electronic sensors. The resulting “one billion pixels,” will serve as a super-sensitive “eye” for the mission Gaia ESA, which aims to create a three-dimensional map of the Milky Way.Gaia will map a billion stars within our own Galaxy during its five-year mission, which will begin in 2013.
According to a new study by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope astronomers have discovered that galaxies in the distant, early universe continuously ingested their star-making fuel over long periods of time. This goes against previous theories that the galaxies devoured their fuel in quick bursts after run-ins with other galaxies.NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope discovered that distant populations of galaxies formed massive, bright stars more commonly than today’s “diet-conscious” galaxies.
Large Magellanic Cloud is the galaxy, which located close to our and is the most striking. According to scientists some of its stars, this galaxy is “stealing” from the Small Magellanic Cloud.Large Magellanic Cloud is located approximately 160 000 light years from the Milky Way galaxy is similar to those that once formed our galaxy.Scientists at the U.S.
The galaxsy NGC 6744 located in the constellation of the Peacock at a distance of 30 million light-years from Earth.With the help their studies astronomers found that both galaxies are similar in structure of the nucleus and the arms and NGC6744 has a satellite, galaxy NGC6744A, such as the Milky Way
After a few billion years Milky Way galaxy will collide with the Andromeda galaxy It would mean as destruc tion and also creation because the galaxies will merge into one but also cosmic clouds of gas and dust will rout together a result of which will be created a new stars
The studies by scientists from Swinburne University of Technology showed that star formation in Milky Way and the nearby spiral galaxy Andromeda soon must be stoped For their studies scientists took the evaluation of colors index in system BV intensity of star formation and stellar mass for the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy
David Bennett’s theam of astronomers discovered a new class of astronomical objects Jupiter’s like dark exoplanet, which don’t related gravitationally with the stars and which independently drifting on space.
