Scientists have recorded death of the nearby galaxy


Outflow of hydrogen from the dwarfish galaxy Small Magellanic Cloud has been noticed. Loss of this substance speaks about the star formation termination. The group of astronomers of the Australian national university observes slow death of the galaxy located near the Milky Way. Recently powerful outflow of hydrogen from the dwarfish galaxy the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) has been noticed. It speaks about the star formation process termination, Science Alert writes. This dwarfish galaxy is located in 200 thousand light years from Earth. Diameter is her 7 thousand light years that more than ten times less Milky Way. Scientists observed the galaxy by means of the Australian radio interferometer ASKAP. Hydrogen which outflow hasn't been so long ago noticed is the main component necessary for star formation. These processes happen in the central crossing point where new stars still continue to appear. The mass of the leaving gas, according to the estimates of astronomers, is 10 million mass of the Sun. Gas is beaten out out of borders of the galaxy by large stars thanks to wind and flashes of supernew. Eventually, process destroys the galaxy, feeding the Magellanic Stream - a chain of the clouds of gas stretched to the South Pole of the Milky Way. Earlier it was reported that astronomers have said that the Fog Andromedy has absorbed the galaxy comparable on of the size of the Milky Way. News отв Telegram.
