A huge shock wave traveling through space.  It is several times larger than the Milky Way

The described shock wave is the result of the collision of two groups of galaxies, which occurred About 1 billion years ago. This led to two of these structures. Their remains are now visible in radio waves, and one of them stretches through intergalactic space as far 6.5 million light years.

It is several times larger than the diameter Milky Waywhich is estimated at About 105.7 thousand. light years. Astronomers have decided to conduct the most in-depth study of this structure to date, using the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa.

The size of the Milky Way compared to the shock wave

Galaxy clusters are the largest objects in the known universe that are bound by gravity. The shock wave generated by the collision travels at a speed about 1500 km/sec.

At the same time, we invite you to listen to the latest episode of the podcast from a technical point of view. This time we talked about the use of new technologies in this area of ​​\u200b\u200blife, as many of us felt strongly in our pockets – waste separation and recycling. Could it be cheaper and what does Polish AI have to do with it? You will find the answer below:
