Ten billion years ago, another galaxy crashed into the Milky Way galaxy.
A report in The Independent states that astronomers have discovered a huge, “fossil constellation” in our midst.
According to independent reports, researchers from the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment Project (APOGEE) announced the discovery on Friday.
They have dubbed the remnant galaxy “Hercules” and they say that its stars were found inside the galaxy, away from the bright center of the galaxy.
D It. “It’s really small in terms of cosmology – just 100 million stars,” Ricardo Shiava said of the remains of Hercules.
“But it accounts for about half of the entire galaxy,” added scientist Shiwana of the Astrophysics Research Institute at Liverpool’s John Moores University.
Dr .. Schiavone and his team were able to tell Hercules the stars of the galaxy and apart from them because of the different stars and different velocities in their galaxy.
“Apogee lets us pierce through that dust and see more than ever before in the heart of the galaxy,” said Dr. Sch. Said Shiva.
Based on scientific data, researchers have concluded that the collision of the two galaxies must have been a major event in the history of our galaxy.
The researchers also said that the phenomenon makes the galaxy unusual because other “spiral galaxies made early life much quieter.”
As our cosmic home, the galaxy is already special to us, but this buried ancient galaxy makes it even more special, ”said Dr. S. Shiawane.
