The latest research results show that the the Milky way is expected to re painted on the face

According to the latest research results show that   the Milky Way department is expected to face painted on the Shaanxi channel: original title: the Milky Way department is expected to face painted on September 29 Nanjing Xinhua (reporter Yao Xueqing) the day before, to China Academy of Purple Mountain Observatory scientists as the main members of the project team of Bessel through the study found:. The main structure of the Milky Way arm system not only has a smooth rule, also has from the arms raised "fork" or even "bridge". The latest research results on the 2 p.m. EST on September 28th published in top international academic journals published in the "Science" sub — "Science Advance", and will be reported as a bright spot (highlights). In many popular science books, the Milky Way system is composed of an interstellar material of billions of stars and countless spiral galaxies, consisting of a core and 2 or 4 arms. The rotary arm is a characteristic structure of spiral galaxies, that a bright band, from the center of the depths of each other until around the edge of the galaxy. The bright spot on the spiral arm is a massive star forming region. Our solar system, the inside in a lot of young stars of mass, the mass of stars and because the Orion association approaches, often referred to as the local arm or the Orion arm. It’s hard to look at the whole picture in the Milky way. However, as long as it can accurately measure the distance between the massive star forming regions in the galaxy’s spiral arms, like a nail on the nail, and a collection of nails can draw the shape of the galaxy’s spiral arms. "The structure of the Milky way is actually much more complex." The main members, the Bessel project Zijinshan Observatory researcher Xu Ye said, they found a local department of the Milky Way raised arm, it is like a bridge from the local arm extends to the Sagittarius Arm, about 12 thousand light-years long, is a projection of the Milky Way system found so far the longest. Xu Ye introduced, it will be shown that the Milky Way not as people previously imagined, only by the magnificent spiral galaxy is composed of the main spiral arms, and more likely to be the main spiral arms of spiral galaxies have a rich structure, in addition to a major arms such "branches", also has a "" on the bifurcation branches. Based on this study, the Milky way is expected to re painted on the face. (commissioning editor Li Jing and Wang Li)相关的主题文章:
