- Meet the dwarf galaxies orbiting our Milky Way! 🌌🎇 This awesome video 👨🏻‍💻 shows the Milky Way satellite galaxies, with galaxies discovered since 2015 in red. The Galactic disk is represented by a circle of radius 15 kpc (48,930 light-years) at the center, and the outer sphere has a radius of 250 kpc (815,500 light-years). The 11 brightest (classical) MW satellites are labeled by name. Sizes of the symbols are not to scale but are rather proportional to the log of each satellite galaxy’s stellar mass. Currently, there are ∼50 satellite galaxies known orbiting our cosmic island! . Scientific Visualization by James S.

- #Repost @astrodaily1 ・・・ How far away is space? Closer than you might think. Space is defined as "the void that exists between celestial bodies". This void has no absolute starting point, due to the fact that our atmosphere has no firm boundary. However, an altitude of about 100 km (62 mi) is the conventional start of outer space. It is remarkable to think that in your personal vehicle, you could easily drive this distance in less than an hour. It can be an unsettling thought that our atmosphere is so incredibly thin relative to the space between planets. We owe all our lives to this minuscule film of gas that protects us from the relentless dangers of space. Understanding the size of our atmosphere should give you a new appreciation of it, and drive home the importance of protecting it. Reposted from August.
