In one of today’s latest scientific developments, scientists are able to bring into light what our own Milky Way galaxy is really shaped like.
This fascinating new observation is courtesy of a new 3-D map that came from measurements of special stars that are called Cepheids.
The observations that were made by Skowron, along with colleagues, are all part of the OGLE program, which stands for Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment.
By combining the new measurements they made with previous information about Cepheids and their nature, the team was able to make a map that charted more or less 2,431 stars.
This amount of understanding led scientists to get a better view of how the galaxy’s current structure came to be.
The Event Horizon Telescope team is set to surprise the world with a "groundbreaking result" at a press conference in Washington, D.C., on April 10.
