The Milky Way loses a lot of satellite galaxies

A new study reveals that the Milky Way contains significantly fewer galaxies in its orbit than previously thought. A new investigation of the data collected by the Gaia space probe (Global Astrometric Interferometer for Astrophysics), has revealed that most of the galaxies are relatively new in the region, clarifying that they are too young to … Read more

The Milky Way loses a lot of satellite galaxies

They detect a possible lost satellite in the Milky Way. A new study reveals that the Milky Way contains significantly fewer galaxies in its orbit than previously thought. A new investigation of the data collected by the Gaia space probe (Global Astrometric Interferometer for Astrophysics), has revealed that most of the galaxies are relatively new … Read more

The Milky Way may have lost the whole group of satellite galaxies

The space around the Milky Way is not empty. It is clustered with dwarf galaxies – small, faint and low-mass, each with about 1,000 stars. This is not uncommon. We know from observations of other large galaxies that dwarf galaxies often cluster nearby and can be detected by the gravity of a large object. Select … Read more

The Milky Way may have lost a whole group of satellite galaxies

The space around the Milky Way is not vacant. It’s teeming with dwarf galaxies—small, faint, and low in mass, with only about 1,000 stars each. It is not unusual. We know from our observations of other large galaxies that dwarf galaxies often cluster nearby and can be caught in the gravitational field of a larger … Read more

The Milky Way may have recently lost a large number of satellite galaxies

The space around the Milky Way is not empty. It is full of dwarf galaxies—small, faint, and low-mass, with about 1,000 stars each. It’s not weird. We know from our observations of other large galaxies that dwarf galaxies often cluster nearby, and can become trapped in the gravitational field of larger objects. Vote for astronomers … Read more

One in five distant galaxies are still hidden from telescopes

MADRID, 23 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) – Astronomers at the Cosmic Dawn Center at the University of Copenhagen have discovered two previously invisible galaxies in the more distant universe. The light of these two invisible galaxies, which have been named REBELS-12-2 and REBELS-29-2, has traveled around 13,000 million years to reach us. Their discovery suggests that … Read more

9 Collisions Between Galaxies Captured by Hubble

Collisions between galaxies may sound both spectacular and rare. In fact, this phenomenon is actually very common, you know. The galaxies in universe must have collided with other galaxies in the past. Likewise with the Milky Way galaxy that we live in today. Instead of being destroyed, two or more colliding galaxies will merge into … Read more

Getting to Know the Galaxies in the Universe: Definition, Various Forms of Galaxies, and Types of Galaxies

TRIBUNNEWS.COM – Earth is the third closest planet to the Sun. In the solar system, Earth is the only planet inhabited by humans. According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), there are eight planets in the solar system. The order of the planets from closest to the Sun is Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, … Read more

Hubble Telescope Captures Image of Two Collision Galaxies

FLORIDA – Hubble Space Telescope recording an image of two galaxies colliding due to the gravitational attraction of the two galaxy the. These two galaxies in one billion years will become one, so it is not yet known how the new galaxy will form. “These are two galaxies having a bad day. Their gravity attracts … Read more
