Slide 2

The Shape and Size of the Galaxy: Our Galaxy has a plate around 50 kpc (160,000 ly ) in distance across and around 600 pc (2000 ly ) thick, with a high grouping of interstellar tidy and gas in the circle. The galactic focus is encompassed by a huge circulation of stars called the focal lump. This lump is not impeccably symmetrical, but rather may have a bar or shelled nut shape. The Galaxy\'s circle is encompassed by a circular conveyance of globular groups and old stars, called the galactic corona. There speak the truth 200 billion (2 ï‚\' 10 11 ) stars in the Galaxy’s plate, focal lump, and radiance.

Slide 3

The Milky Way Galaxy is a plate formed gathering of stars. When we watch out at the night sky in the circle\'s plane, the stars show up as a band of light that extends the distance around the sky. When we look opposite to the Galaxy\'s plane, we see just those moderately few stars that lie in the middle of us and the “top” or “bottom” of the circle.

Slide 5

Herschel’s decided the Galaxy’s shape by including the quantities of stars different parts of the sky. Herschel’s conclusions were defective on the grounds that interstellar dust hindered his perspective of inaccessible stars, driving him to the incorrect thought that the Sun is at the focal point of the Galaxy.

Slide 6

Finding the Galaxy\'s Center : (an) A driver lost on a foggy night can focus his area by searching for tall structures that stretch out over the mist. (b) In the same way, space experts focus our area in the Galaxy by watching globular groups that are a Galaxy\'s piece however lie outside the darkening material in the galactic plate. The globular bunches structure a circular corona fixated on the focal point of the Galaxy.

Slide 8

The Sun’s Location in the Galaxy: Our Sun exists in the galactic circle, approximately 8000 pc (26,000 ly) from the focal point of the Galaxy. Interstellar dust clouds our perspective at unmistakable wavelengths along observable pathways that lie in the plane of the galactic plate. Therefore, the Sun’s area in the Galaxy was obscure for a long time. This issue was determined by watching parts of the Galaxy outside the plate. The Sun circles around the focal point of the Galaxy at a rate of around 790,000 km/h. It takes around 220 million years to finish one circle.

Slide 9

There are three noteworthy segments of our Galaxy: a plate, a focal lump, and a radiance. The plate contains gas and dust alongside metal-rich (Population I) stars. The corona is made only out of old, metal-poor (Population II) stars. The focal lump is a blend of Population I and Population II stars.

Slide 10

If we could see our Galaxy from an extraordinary separation, it would most likely resemble this universe in the star grouping Pegasus.

Slide 12

Star Orbits in the Milky Way : The diverse populaces of stars in our Galaxy go along distinctive sorts of circles. The system in this obvious light picture is the Milky Way’s close twin NGC 7331, the same universe appeared at infrared wavelengths

Stellar Populations: Disk Versus Central Bulge

Slide 14

Magnetic Interactions in the Hydrogen Atom : (a) The vitality of a couple of magnets is high when their north posts or their south shafts are close to one another, and low when they have inverse shafts close to one another. (b) Thanks to their twist, electrons and protons are both small magnets. At the point when the electron flips from the higher-vitality setup (with its twist in the same bearing as the proton’s twist) to the lower-vitality design (with its twist inverse to the proton’s turn), the particle loses a little measure of vitality and discharges a radio photon with a wavelength of 21 cm.

Slide 15

The Sky at 21 Centimeters : This picture was made by mapping the sky with radio telescopes tuned to the 21-cm wavelength transmitted by impartial interstellar hydrogen (H I). The whole sky has been mapped onto an oval, and the Galaxy\'s plane amplifies on a level plane over the picture. Beat up speak to the weakest outflow, and red and white the most grounded.

Slide 16

A Technique for Mapping Our Galaxy : If we search inside the plane of our Galaxy from our position at S, hydrogen mists at distinctive areas (appeared as 1, 2, 3, and 4) along our viewable pathway are moving at marginally diverse velocities with respect to us. Subsequently, radio waves from these different gas mists are subjected to somewhat diverse Doppler movements. This grants radio cosmologists to deal with the gas mists and along these lines delineate Galaxy.

Slide 17

The cosmic system M83 lies in the southern group of stars Hydra around 5 million pc (15 million ly) from Earth. (a) This noticeable light picture obviously demonstrates the winding arms. The vicinity of youthful stars and H II districts demonstrates that star development happens in winding arms. (b) This radio perspective at a wavelength of 21 cm demonstrates the discharge from impartial interstellar hydrogen gas (H I). Note that basically the same example of winding arms is followed out in this picture as in the obvious light photo. (c) M83 has a much smoother appearance in this close infrared perspective. This demonstrates that cooler stars, which radiate emphatically in the infrared, are spread all the more consistently over the galaxy’s circle. Note the prolonged bar state of the focal lump.

Slide 18

Our Galaxy Seen Face-on: Artist’s Impressions : (a) The Galaxy’s breadth speaks the truth 50,000 pc (160,000 ly), and our nearby planetary group speaks the truth 8000 pc (26,000 ly) from the galactic focus. The extended focal lump speaks the truth 8300 pc (27,000 ly) long and is situated at pretty nearly 45Ⱐto a line running from the close planetary system to the galactic focus.

Slide 19

The Rotation of Our Galaxy : (a) This schematic chart indicates three stars (the Sun and two others) circling the focal point of the Galaxy. In spite of the fact that they begin off lined up, the stars turn out to be progressively isolated as they move along their circles. Stars inside the Sun’s circle overwhelm and push forward of the Sun, while stars a long way from the galactic focus linger behind the Sun. (b) The stars would stay lined up if the Galaxy pivoted like a strong circle. This is not what is watched. (c) If stars circled the galactic focus in the same way that planets circle the Sun, stars inside the Sun’s circle would surpass us speedier than they are seen to do.

Slide 20

The Galaxy’s Rotation Curve : The blue bend demonstrates the orbital rates of stars and gas in the Galaxy\'s plate out to a separation of 18,000 parsecs from the galactic focus. (Not very many stars are discovered past this separation.) The dashed red bend shows how this orbital rate ought to decrease past the limitations a large portion of the Galaxy’s unmistakable mass. Since there is no such decrease, there must be a wealth of imperceptible dim matter that reaches out to extraordinary separations from the galactic focus.

Slide 21

The Galaxy and Its Dark Matter Halo The dim matter in our Galaxy shapes a circular radiance whose inside is at the focal point of the noticeable Galaxy. The dull\'s degree matter corona is obscure, yet its breadth is no less than 100 kiloparsecs. The aggregate mass of the dim matter radiance is no less than 10 times the consolidated mass of the stars\' majority, clean, gas, and planets in the Milky Way.

Slide 22

The Galaxy\'s Rotation and Dark Matter: From investigations of the Galaxy\'s revolution, cosmologists evaluate that the aggregate mass of the Galaxy speaks the truth 10 12 M  . Just around 10% of this mass is as unmistakable stars, gas, and dust. The staying 90% is in some nonvisible structure, called dull matter, that amplifies past the edge of the brilliant material in the Galaxy. Our Galaxy’s dull matter may be a blend of MACHOs (faint, star-sized articles), huge neutrinos, and WIMPs (moderately gigantic subatomic particles).

Slide 23

Microlensing by Dark Matter in the Galactic Halo : (an) If a thick question, for example, a chestnut diminutive person or dark opening goes between the Earth and a removed star, the gravitational bend of space around the thick protest diverts the starlight and centers it toward us. This impact is called microlensing. (b) This light bend demonstrates the gravitational microlensing of light from a star in the Galaxy’s focal lump. Space experts don\'t have the foggiest idea about the object\'s way that went between the Earth and this star to bring about the microlensing.

Slide 24

The Winding Dilemma : This arrangement of drawings demonstrates that winding arms in universes like the Milky Way can\'t just be gatherings of stars. In the event that they were, the winding arms would “wind up” and vanish in only a couple of hundred million years.

Slide 25

A Density Wave on the Highway A thickness wave in a winding world is closely resembling a team of painters moving gradually along the parkway, making a moving road turned parking lot. Like such a congested road, a thickness wave in a winding world is a moderate moving district where stars, gas, and dust are more thickly stuffed than in whatever remains of the universe. As the world\'s material goes through the thickness wave, it is compacted.

Slide 26

A winding arm is a district where the thickness of material is higher than in the encompassing parts of a cosmic system. Interstellar matter moves around the galactic focus quickly (appeared by the red bolts) and is packed as it goes through the moderate moving winding arms (whose movement is appeared by the blue bolts). This pressure triggers star arrangement in the interstellar matter so that new stars show up on the “downstream” side of the densest piece of the winding arms.
