Update!


Dr Stefan Keller and researchers from the Australian National University have found that a large band of stars at the edge of the galaxy were ripped from the nearby smaller Sagittarius dwarf galaxy.



The finding is documented in the latest issue of the Astrophysical Journal.



"The Sagittarius dwarf is a cosmic lightweight weighing 10,000 times less than our Milky Way," Dr Keller said.



"It has ventured too close to our galaxy and is now getting stretched out and slowly torn apart, a bit like spaghetti being wound round a fork."



Dr Keller and his team made the discovery by searching over 15,000 images of the sky looking for a very rare type of star known as an RR Lyrae.

Star wars ... Aussie scientists have discovered that our Milky Way galaxy is slowly tearing off the stars of a neighbouring smaller galaxy and slowly devouring it, as seen in this artist's impression

Yeah there has been a few threads about the Milky Way merging with the Sag. Dwarf galaxy. Which convinced some members we (our solar system) are actually apart of Sag. Dwarf. If I recall right that is..

Anyways i'll link to those threads when I find them.

Well .. Due to the ecliptic direction our Solar Plasma Heliopause is pointed towards..

It certainly does look like we are part of the Sag dwarf belt.. and we are moving through the equatorial plane of the Milky Way very soon.

2012.. ooooohhh

Well it is interesting timing to say the least... The Mayan certainly had celestial movements down pat!..


Although at the scales we are talking about Gravity... has nothing to do with it.


Gravity based cosmology is bankrupt.. and will be known to future generations of humans (if we survive long enough).. in the same breath as flat earthers.. and earth centered cosmology.

this gives new meaning to the lyric

"The universe is Hostile, so impersonal...devour to survive so it is, so its always been"

Very interesting to see this!!!


Now, all the talk of space and candy bars, makes me hungry.

And in a couple of billion years, the Milky Way will suffer the same fate at the hands of the much larger Andromeda Galaxy. Too bad that its so far out into the future. I'd imagine that it'll be a heck of a sight in the night sky for a few million years before it happens.

I remember reading somewhere that in a few billion years the Andromeda galaxy and Milky Way are set to collide almost perpendicularly. I've got no idea which is actually swallowing the other, but it's pretty fascinating. And supposedly there's a lot of cosmic events to be expected from the collision, should be a pretty cool show for anyone who knows how to get to the Restaurant At the End of the Universe.

In fact, I always figured that always had a double meaning, and galaxy-eating was one of the meanings Tool was getting at
