stream of star gas collide with galaxy: hot stream of star gas will collide with our galaxy sooner

Written by admin


  • Clouds of hot gas emanating from the explosion of stars can collide with our galaxy
  • This would increase the presence of new star-forming gases in our galaxy
  • Scientist said – these gas balls reached five times closer than before

Our galaxy is about to play a violent game of tussle with two dangerous neighbors. These two dangerous neighbors of the Milky Way are none other than gaseous clouds emanating from the explosion of stars. These two gaseous clouds are born from the mutual pull of two dwarf galaxies located close to our galaxy. The mass of these dwarf galaxies is about 100 times less than that of our Milky Way. Now these gaseous spheres are rapidly approaching the gravity of our galaxy.

The ongoing tussle of 3 billion years will end
The tussle between these two dwarf galaxies and our galaxy for the last 3 billion years is about to end. Both these galaxies appear to be losing in front of the gravity of our galaxy. It is already known that larger galaxies eat up smaller galaxies. This is the reason that both these dwarf galaxies are now rapidly moving towards our galaxy.

Now the small galaxy is also preying on the younger ones, if the remains are found, the scientists were also shocked.
Our galaxy will be filled with star-forming gases
Due to their pull, both these dwarf galaxies are moving forward leaving behind a red mark. One day this hot gas-filled stream will collide with our galaxy and fill it with star-forming gas. This collision will permanently change the landscape of the night sky. This will also lead to the rapid formation of new stars in our galaxy.

Collision will happen after 50 million years
In clear skies you can see these two dwarf galaxies behind our Milky Way in the southern part of the sky. However, it is very difficult to see them without binoculars. They are moving forward leaving a red mark behind them. These are known as Magellanic Streams. It is likely to collide with our galaxy within about 50 million years.

Three galaxies were tug of war in the universe, have you seen this strange picture captured in the Hubble Space Telescope?
These ‘monsters’ reached five times closer than before
The Magellanic Stream is much closer to our galaxy than previously estimated, according to new research published on November 8 in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. The team of researchers discovered the relationship between the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds with each other and our galaxy in their recent observations of this reddish structure. They found that this stream is only 65,000 light years away from Earth. It is five times closer than before.
