The Milky Way is expected to collide with its neighboring galaxies, Andromeda and the Large Magellanic Cloud
in a few billion years.
In this study, Riess and his SH0ES (Supernovae, H0, for the Equation of State) Team analyzed light from 70 stars in our neighboring galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud
, with a new method that allowed for capturing quick images of these stars.
According to a study published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, the Large Magellanic Cloud
will catastrophically collide with the Milky Way in 2 billion years.
The longer arm of the False Cross points roughly to the Large Magellanic Cloud
The new peer-reviewed study of the Small Magellanic Cloud
(SMC), which is a tiny fraction of the size and mass of the Milky Way galaxy, uses images taken with CSIRO's powerful Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope array.
IANS | Canberra A dwarf galaxy near the Milky Way called the Small Magellanic Cloud
is slowly dying from gradual loss of energy to form stars, said a study by Australian astronomers published on Tuesday.
ASTRONOMERS HAVE SPOTTED a rare supergiant star speeding through the Milky Way's neighboring galaxy, the Small Magellanic Cloud
, at 300 km/s (700,000 mph).
After Andromeda and the Milky Way, the Large Magellanic Cloud
and the magnificent spiral galaxy M33 are the next largest in size.
The cluster - named R136 - is only a few light years across and is in the Tarantula Nebula within the Large Magellanic Cloud
- a satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way.
The galaxies were found near the Large Magellanic Cloud
, the largest Milky Way satellite.
He continued with spectroscopy of Magellanic Cloud
clusters at Sutherland and confirmed the evolutionary transition from M via S to C stars as due to material being processed by thermonuclear reactions, especially the s-process elements and carbon.
The supernova remnant is called DEM L241 and is found in the Large Magellanic Cloud
, a small neighboring galaxy to the Milky Way.
