How to use galaxy in a sentence?

  1. Jonathan Davis:

    We know dark matter exists around galaxies and we want to ask — if light from the galaxy can scatter off the dark matter, like a dust cloud, can you actually observe this light?

  2. Martin Rees:

    The study of exoplanets is perhaps the most vibrant field of astronomy, we now know that most stars are orbited by retinues of planets; there may be a billion planets in our galaxy resembling the Earth.

  3. Fernando Camilo:

    We didn't expect to use our telescope so early in the game, it's not even optimized, but to turn it to the centre of the galaxy and obtain these stunning images, the best in the world, tells you you've done something right, better than right.

  4. Richard Feynman:

    There are 1011 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

  5. Chris Harrison:

    This particular piece of work on the Teacup Galaxy has provided new insight into how the black holes [drive energy] in ordinary galaxies, they appear to be capable of driving jets of charged particles that collide into the gas. You could imagine the ‘jet’ as like a water cannon being driven into a crowd of people - the water cannon collides with the crowd and causes it to break up and disperse rapidly. In this analogy, the crowd represents the gas in the galaxy that is trying to form stars, but is destroyed by the jet.
