    Milky Way Mystery: Is Our Galaxy Getting Even Bigger?

    Sci-tech

    The massive, warm blue stars are very bright and have a relatively short lifespan of several million years while lower-mass stars eventually become redder and much weaker and can live for hundreds of billions of years. Now a safe 2.5 million light years away, the Andromeda galaxy is even larger than the Milky Way. Measuring this light allowed them to figure out how long it will take for stars to move from their nurseries, and how their galaxies were growing.
