An invisible cloud of gas is speeding toward our Milky Way galaxy at 700,000 miles per hour. But don’t worry: It will take about 30 million years to get here.
Sometimes (often) I think about how great our distant descendants are going to have it; whizzing about the Milky Way in sleek, FTL-enabled spacecraft. Some of those lucky future humans may even get to glimpse wonders like this with their own eyes.
How big is this photo? So big that just by taking it, astronomers found over 50,000 new stars and other bright space objects.
