    That’s huge! The Milky Way, the galaxy in which we live in, is one of about 170 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Our Sun is one of the billions of stars in our galaxy, and our eight planets revolve around this star in only a tiny part of our galaxy. “The Earth’s solar system is believed to exist very close to the Galaxy’s galactic plane, due to the fact that the Milky Way essentially divides the night sky into two virtually equal hemispheres” ("All About the Milky"). It definitely makes

    of the Milky Way By Nathanael Roybal; Geological Sciences ABSTRACT The Milky way is a band of light that has millions of stars that are combined together and that spans 100,000 light years away. They say the Milky Way is about 14 billion years old. How they figured this out by measuring the ages of each star. They have found trace elements of hydrogen and helium so we know that the Milky Way was formed and early in the history. Another good way to find the age of the stars in the Milky Way is measuring

    Introduction At the beginning of the course we were asked to choose a “Cosmic Target”, which is something in space that we wanted to know more about. I chose the Milky Way Galaxy as a single unit. I wanted to know why it was, what it was and where it was going. All of us of course know where the Milky Way is, it is our home. A part of our cosmic address, and up until recently it was the biggest thing that we could imagine. As far as where it is in the universe, it is in The Local group, which is

    expanding and galaxies are moving away from the Milky Way (Bennett et al. 109). However, Andromeda poses a contradiction; while other galaxies are moving away from the Milky Way, Andromeda is actually moving towards it and is set on a collision course with our galaxy. This paper will explore the different ways in which galaxies interact with each other, particularly focusing on galactic mergers. It will also analyze the impact of the Andromeda-Milky Way collision including the effect on existing objects

    Discussing the Hypothesis of a Supermassive Black Hole in the Milky Way Galaxy There is evidence that supports the hypothesis that the Milky Way Galaxy has a massive black hole at its core. At the center of our very own galaxy is a mysterious source of energy. Vast amounts of radiation pour from this compact source which may be a Supermassive Black Hole. Astronomers found an intense radio source with strings of other radio sources clustered about it in the direction of the galactic center. The

    Shapley-Curtis Debate happened in Washington where Shapley argued that our Milky Way was the only galaxy in the Universe and Curtis argued that there were many other galaxies in the Universe but none of the opponents had any concrete evidence to prove their respective theories. However, in 1929 Edwin Hubble provided observational evidence from which he concluded that there was millions of galaxies in the Universe beside our Milky Way Galaxy. And in the process of discovering, he also found out that our
