The Future of the Milky Way

Today on Discovery Enterprise we explore the future fate of our home galaxy – The Milky Way.


The Milky Way Galaxy, commonly referred to as just the Milky Way, or sometimes simply as the Galaxy, is the galaxy in which the Solar System is located. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy that is part of the Local Group of galaxies. It is one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe. Its name is a translation of the Latin Via Lactea, referring to the pale band of light formed by stars in the galactic plane as seen from Earth.

Enjoy this Discovery Channel Documentary about the past, present and the future of our galaxy.
