Astronomical Discovery

“The team – which includes Daniel Majaesshttp://www.msvu.ca/en/home/aboutus/mediacentre/news/MilkyWaydiscovery.aspx, a Canadian astronomer and instructor at Mount Saint Vincent University and Saint Mary’s University – uncovered a previously unknown disc of young stars that spans the central region of the Milky Way. The finding implies that new stars are continuously forming near the Galaxy’s centre, contrary to an existing belief that the surrounding region contains only older objects.”
