An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t
I had no idea this was happening. Where are we going?
To fuck some shit up
Around the center of the Milky Way, which is heading towards the Andromeda Galaxy. And our whole Local Group is moving towards the Virgo Cluster.
But we’ll never actually reach the Virgo Cluster because space is expanding between us and them faster than we’re moving towards it.
SCIENCE BONER. RIGHT NOW.
CASUAL REMINDER THAT YOU AND EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE IS ACTUALLY FLYING AROUND SPACE AT BATSHIT-CRAZY SPEEDS IT’S ONLY BY A FUCKING MIRACLE CALLED GRAVITY WE HAVEN’T RAMMED SQUARE INTO SOMETHING ELSE YET

OMG Sarah! *coffee everywhere
