Great Magellanic Cloud is one of eleven nano galaxies We know the orchestra our Milky Way. And according to research published by the Royal Astronomy Association of the United Kingdom, He has been fighting for two million years with a galaxy. A very long time in human life, but very short on a cosmic scale.
It's the Great Magellanic Cloud The brightest satellite galaxy The Milky Way was close and we entered the district about 1,500 million years ago. About this 163,000 light years, Milky Way It has a length of about 30,000 light years.
From the ground, above all Visible in the southern hemisphere. Great Magellanic Cloud is an irregular galaxy with millions of old red stars and clouds of young stars. The famous Tarantula Nebula. The brightest supernova of the modern era, the SN1987A, GNM exploded.
According to astrophysicists from the University of Durham in the UK, Large Magellanic Cloud can affect the Milky Way in 2 million years.
Marian Cautun, principal author of the research, said that a member of the Postdoctoral Institute of Computational Cosmetology at Durham University stated "The Great Magellanic Cloud Destruction, the Milky Way" destruction will make our galaxy, Black awake holes in the black center and turn our galaxy into an "active galactic nuclear" or quasar. Swallowing gas around it would increase ten times.
"This phenomenon will be created Powerful high-energy radiation airplanes out of the black hole. In addition to doing so, There is not a small chance we can not escape the collision between two galaxies To throw the Milky Way and towards the intergalactic space, "he said.
The collision between the Magellanic Cloud Great and the Milky Way could be spectacular, according to researchers.
"If there are disasters, as a major blend of the Solar System, our descendants, if they are, are an impressive exhibition of cosmic fireworks he reacts to the supermassive black hole that awakens in the middle of our galaxy as it emits radiation fever with a very bright energy, "said Carlos Frenk, professor's researcher.
