According to a new 3D model of the Milky Way, our galaxy is warped and shaped like the popular brand of potato chip. “I’d say that it is shaped like a Pringle” said Radek Poleski, an astronomer at Ohio State University who helped to create the new map.
According to scientific predictions, the Milky Way will collide with the Andromeda Galaxy within 4 billion years, creating a hybrid galaxy dubbed “Milkomeda”.
If the Sun was scaled down to the size of a white blood cell, the Milky way would be the size of the continental United States.
After a massive power outage in Los Angeles, many residents called 911 and reported seeing strange clouds overhead – the Milky Way.
