Using the European Space Agency's Gaia Observatory, an international team of astrophysicists at the University of Laguna and the Space Telescope Science Institute in the USA discovered three hard-to-observe dwarf spherical galaxies orbiting the Milky Way.
Dwarf galaxies attract a special interest from scientists because they were the first to form, and not many of them are left because they were destroyed by large galaxies such as the Milky Way.
So, scientists are interested in studying them due to the important information they contain about the early universe, and because they contain large amounts of dark matter and little gas.
Previous studies proved that that dwarf spherical objects do not have internal rotation patterns, but their stars move in mostly random orbits towards and away from the centre of the galaxy, and therefore scientists will conduct their study to understand the history of these dwarf galaxies.
Last month, astronomers have always been curious to know about the young and old stars that exist in the 13.1 billion-year-old Milky Way — the galaxy that houses the Earth and its solar system and appears as a whitish band in the clear summer night sky.
A team of astronomers of the European Union-funded “Asterochronometry” project had so far successfully studied and surveyed 100 of the 400 billion stars oscillating within the whitish band. Interviewed, principal investigator Dr. Andrea Miglio said the 100 selected stars were “red giant branch stars (whose iron content is four to 50 times less than in the sun), which is a good indicator of an old population. The final sample contains only 95, with ages from two to 16 billion years.”
According to cosmologists, the current theoretical limit is calculated to be 1.2 billion light-years, making the Giant Arc even more massive than astronomers know.
A study published Monday has found that an arachnid species is capable of winding up its web to store up elastic energy, before releasing its grip and catapulting itself at furious speed toward its unsuspecting prey.
Samsung Gulf Electronics has brought back the Galaxy Studio to Dubai to transport visitors to a one-stop interactive experience of mobile connectivity. Located in City Walk, the Galaxy Studio puts the full Samsung experience in the hands of the consumer, where they can try out Samsung’s latest devices such as the Galaxy S10 range, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Buds and latest accessories.
The unexpected thin disc of material was found encircling a supermassive black hole at the heart of the spiral galaxy NGC 3147, located 130 million light-years away, according to a Study published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
Emma Corrin even swapped her crown for a bonnet for the event.
‘We could keep the numbers down and do something that we love,’ says bride Lisa Higgins.
The media quoted Hori, 36, as saying that what prompted him to this strange routine of sleeping was that he found that 16 hours were not enough to achieve everything he wanted to do in one day, and to enjoy his life.
