The Milky Way in three dimensions
When Galileo pointed his first telescope at the Milky Way in the early 17th century, he noticed it consists of countless stars. Since that time, studying the properties and history of our Galaxy has absorbed many generations of scientists. Writing in Science, Polish astronomers from the UW Astronomical Observatory present a unique three-dimensional map of the Milky Way.
