    10-milky-way.jpg

    A recent published study in the Astrophysics Journal has estimated the weight of the Milky Way to be approximately 1.54 trillion solar masses, most of which
    comes from dark matter & not planets.

    one solar mass is 332,946 times the mass of earth

    If it weighs that much how does it stay up in the sky? Shouldn't it all come crashing down to Earth?

    Finally, something I can read and follow. I’m lost and overwhelmed, but yet still intrigued by this thread.

    BlackHoleESOillustrationMilkyWayGalaxyGasAroundBlackHole.jpg

    After analyzing the data over a two year span from the 8 Event Horizon telescopes stationed around the world, scientists have been able to
    create an illustration of the black hole in the center of the Milky Way galaxy, approximately 26,000 light years from earth.
    The telescopes were aimed for ten days in April 2017 at the center of the Milky Way and synchronized by atomic clocks. The black hole is called Sagittarius A; another galaxy called M87 was also surveyed.

    Yes, that sign is flat as compared to the joint you fire up standing while standing next to it.
