Scientists have discovered the single galaxy in the Universe

Ученые обнаружили самую одинокую галактику во Вселенной

The density of matter in the region of the constellation of the Fish is less than one atom per cubic meter of space.

Galaxy MCG + 01-02-015, is a spiral galaxy with a jumper located inside a large cosmic void.

She’s so isolated that if mankind was in this galaxy and developed astronomy at the same rate as now, we would not have discovered the first galaxy outside of our pre-1960s years, reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference for a New time.

To the naked human eye in the sky see four galaxies. The large and Small Magellanic clouds, which helped Magellan on his famous journey nearly 500 years ago, and the galaxy of triangulum and Andromeda.

The first ever sketch of a spiral galaxy was created in the middle of the 1840-ies. MCG+01-02-015 is also an example of a spiral galaxy with tightly wound arms. It is located in one of the most empty parts of space. The density of matter in the region of the constellation of the Fish is less than one atom per cubic meter of space.

The universe its structure is similar to a giant three dimensional spider’s web, the threads of which are clusters of dark matter — the so-called filaments. Unlike most galaxies, which are located along galactic filaments, MCG 01-02-015 is in the voids — empty spaces between filaments.

The system of satellites for global Internet caused concern among astronomers

Although the galaxy MCG 01-02-015 is at a distance of about 293 million light-years around it, there are no other galaxies about 100 million light-years in all directions. Scientists believe. what is the single galaxy in the Universe. However, in this region there are still small galaxies with low surface brightness.
