Astronomers have spotted an ‘ ancient eruption of the star in the center of the milky way Galaxy is so drastic and intense that it has resulted in more than 100,000 supernova explosions.

Using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), the astronomers were able to discover that about 80 percent of the stars in the milky way Galaxy, in its central region, is formed between the 13.5 and 8 million years ago.

After a period of time of about 6 billion years from now, if there are not enough stars were made, there was “an intense burst of star formation” which is about 1 billion years ago. During this period, about 100 million years ago, there were stars with a total mass may be as high as a hundred million of suns,” “the RING”, writes on her web site.

This means that the level of detail required to be picked up by the HAWK-I, which is roughly equivalent to the look of a soccer ball (football), in Zurich, Munich, germany, where the ETF’s registered office is located.

By way of comparison, the Milky way, is widely accepted to be 13.5 billion years old.

“With our unparalleled view of a major part of the Galactic center has given us an in-depth understanding of the formation process of stars in this region of the milky way Galaxy,” said Rainer Schödel of the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia in Granada, Spain, in a statement on the ESO’s web site.

“Contrary to what had been accepted up to now, we have found that the formation of stars is not continuous,” Francisco Nogueras-Lara, the lead author of the study, it will be added to the list.

The images were taken using the HAWK-1 instrument at the very large telescope (VLT), a tool that allows astronomers to “see” through dense interstellar clouds of dust and gas.

“The situation in the studied region during this burst of activity seemed to come in those who are at the ‘starburst’ galaxies, the stars at rates of greater than 100 solar masses per year,” Nogueras-Jump will be added.

This is the beautiful image of the Milky way’s central region, taken with the HAWK-I instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope, and shows the most interesting features of this part of our galaxy, the milky way. This image indicates the Nuclear Star Cluster (NSC) in the middle of the city, and the Arches Cluster, the largest cluster of stars in the milky way Galaxy. The other features are, inter alia, in the Quintuplet cluster, which is composed of the five prominent stars, as well as one of the region’s ionized hydrogen (HII).

“This burst of activity, which should have led to an explosion of more than a hundred of a thousand supernovae, it is likely to be one of the most energetic events in the entire history of the milky way Galaxy,” Nogueras-Jump to continue.
