Cosmic Beacons Reveal the Milky Way's Ancient Core
1212.jpg An international team of astronomers led by Dr . Andrea Kunder of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam ( AIP ) in Germany and Dr . R . Michael Rich of UCLA has discovered that the central 2000 light years within the Milky Way Galaxy hosts an ancient population of stars .
SHAO Astronomers discovered 15 candidate X-ray transients in the nearby satellite galaxy NGC 55
1.jpg Our Milky Way Galaxy is not alone in space. There are a number of smaller satellite galaxies which orbit around it. In the southern hemisphere, one can easily see two of our closest neighbours without a telescope, which are the well-known Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, about 160,000--200,000 ...
