Participants in a research project of the Smithsonian Center for Astronomy in the USA managed to capture the cosmic bubble in three dimensions at its center our solar system. In a region relatively close to our galaxy about 14 million years ago, there was a group of about 15 stars. swarm
It was destroyed in a barrage of supernova explosions that created a cosmic structure, a bubble a thousand light-years across that observations show continues to grow.
Scientists called this structure the Local Bubble and it entered our solar system about five million years ago. Experts say that there are many such cosmic bubbles in the universe, but the place where our solar system is located, that is, in its very center, is rare. As they say this position
Where we are in allows us to look across the sky and constantly discover new stars being born.
“Space is full of these bubbles that cause new stars and planets to form and thus affect their shape
galaxies. By learning more about the mechanisms of the local bubble in which the Sun lives today, we can
Learn more about the evolution and dynamics of these structures,” says Theo O’Neil, a member of the research team.
