What the Milky way really looks like

Post by Spooky_Zalost on Tue Jan 04, 2011 1:32 pm

As of a couple years ago recent analysis of the galaxy's dark matter as well as the position of the stars have led several astronomers to believe that the galaxy is in fact a specific type of spiral galaxy known as a barred spiral.
This sub type is characterised by a fairly large and thick band of stars running right through the centre bulge.
many scientists think it looks something like this.



added to that there are several dwarf Galaxies, here is a map of the milky way showing the arms, and a larger distance one showing the dwarf galaxies

yes it is true! in fact it will happen in approximately 1-2 Billion years and finish in about 5-6 billion years! the end result being a new galaxy and the earth being moved farther out in the arm... if it's still around after the sun has swollen up and entered the red giant phase

Milky-andro Galaxy

Post by Lot Creator on Sat Feb 05, 2011 7:18 pm

affraid affraid affraid
While I believe that the sun is going out in some more time, my concern in that time will be a star, planet, or a object that colides with our planet or our sun that will destroy us from that galaxy. I don't really have any fear due to the fact that it will occur in billions of years from now, and it will not occur in thousand nor in a millon years from now. So don't worry! Live Long and be happy!
Happy exploring

study
cheers confused lol!

one thing you have to remember Lot creator, there is Vast distances between stars even when galaxies collide. they don't collide per say... it's more like they pass through each other like ghosts while their center's of gravity shift and change and sometimes (like in the Andromeda/milky way case) merge.

it is a possibility for a star to pass close and hurl asteroids and other debris at us due to it's gravity

it's also likely that in 500,million to 1 Billion years the sun will be too hot for the earth to sustain life so by this time we will probably either be on mars (through teraforming) or another planet somewhere else... that is if we don't annihilate ourselves first Wink
