Enter the UniverseMachine: simulation software run on a powerful supercomputer, able to grow millions of … Continue reading “Astronomers find the Biggest Mystery in the Universe”
Astronomers have always considered intergalactic violence to be a part of the process through which large galaxies tend to grow. A new survey suggests that some distant galaxies rip up and devour their smaller galaxy neighbours. Milky Way and Andromeda galaxy are known to be cannibals, spiral and closest to each other.
The big bang theory is known to be the first and most famous theory stating the evolution of the universe.
A huge star found near the centre of the Milky Way Galaxy once again goes on to prove how correct Einstein was in making assumptions about the gravity.
