    Andromeda Galaxy

    • ✌ Kathleen S. Cruikshank ✌

      The Andromeda Galaxy - It is 2 million light years away from what we see now is how it appeared 2 million years ago. It will collide with our Milky Way in 2 billions years from now - the two galaxies are heading towards each other at a rate of 430 km/hr! A billion years from now Andromeda will loom as a spectacular site, eventually swelling to fill half of the night sky.

    Embers In The Dust

    In 2004, astronomers discovered a star composed entirely of diamond, measuring 4,000 km across and 10 billion trillion trillion carats. 50 light years from Earth, the diamond star is classified as a crystallized white dwarf, the hot core that remains after a star burns out. Only recently have scientists been able to study the contents of the white dwarf, and they’ve confirmed that the crystallized carbon interior of the star is, in fact, the galaxy’s largest diamond.

    Outer Space - Andromeda Galaxy

    This Small Magellic Cloud is considered as a dwarf irregular galaxy. It has a diameter of about 7,000 light-years and contains several hundred million stars, very small compared to the Milky Way, our 100,000 light years galaxy.
