The Milky Way kidnapped several tiny galaxies from its neighbor

University of California Riverside-led research shows our galaxy is undergoing a massive merger with its largest satellite galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. Just like the moon orbits the Earth, and the Earth orbits the sun, galaxies orbit each other according to the predictions of cosmology.

Two tall 'chimneys' of plasma are pouring out of our galaxy's center, a new X-ray study shows. They may be fueling even larger, weirder structures.

What's in a galaxy? A lot, apparently. We now have the most accurate measurements of the size and mass of the Milky Way ever calculated, and it's turned out to be more massive than we thought.What's in a galaxy? A lot, apparently.

The Latest Calculation of Milky Way's Mass Just Changed What We Know About Our Galaxy

“Three and half million years ago, the center of our galaxy exploded. And I do mean exploded. The blast of energy released was *billions of times* the Sun’s output. For a (literal) shining moment, the Milky Way was a quasar again. https://t.co/tjqccLQKEw”

“There's an estimated 100 billion exoplanets in the Milky Way and there is an estimated 100 billion "Milky Ways". Looks almost impossible that we are the only intelligent life in the universe. It also looks almost impossible that we are the only intelligent life in our galaxy.”
