    huh...just few years ago...astronomers said.. milky way was twice as large than previously estimated!

    Guess it is like the situation with coffee: sometimes researchers say its good for your health & sometimes bad for your health but in reality no one cares icon_smile.gif

    All these figures are approximate, with so many uncertainties in the calculations.
    Science itself is a work in progress. Each new theory better than its predecessor but still imperfect.
