Scientists be expecting a supernova explosion in the Milky Way in the next 50 years

Milky wayCatch the right moment astronomers plan with a detector of neutrinos. Supernova emits them from the very commencement of the explosion, but it can flare up in the infrared or visible light is only a few minutes, hours or days. Chance to see a supernova explosion in infrared light within the Milky Way in the next 50 years is almost 100%, and in the visible range – only 20% or less, according to a paper published in the Astrophysical Journal . Right now, technology has evolved to such an extent that we can learn a lot more about supernovae, if the next one will be able to observe in our galaxy and explore it with all the tools available to us, – said Kristover Kochanek from Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio (USA).

Who and how to raise the tide in the Milky Way?

GalaxyOur galaxy is in order! Someone or something is sowing resentment among its stars, and its character indicates a clear intervention of another large object. When astronomers first analyzed the data of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, on 300 thousand stars that are far from the Sun at a distance of up to 3 million light-years, suddenly found that below the plane of the galactic disk in our surroundings more stars than at the top half. On the contrary, a little farther away from us above the plane of the disk was lighter than the bottom. And further more stars is again at the bottom of the disc. It sounds like oscillation, and, according to available data, the way it is, – says Susan Gardner Susan Gardner from the University of Kentucky in Lexington (USA). Read the rest of this entry »
