The Milky Way isn't a stable disk of stars, new research has discovered, but in fact is warped and twisted the further away from the centre you look. A new 3D map of the Milky Way reveals the galaxy is twisted and warped — not flat. Astronomers found that it's composed of four major spiral arms and a bar-shaped core. The twisted form of the Milky Way has been revealed in three dimensions, thanks to a map of bright, young pulsating stars. The Milky Way: A twisted, warped place This image compares a simulation of the Milky Way galaxy's Cepheid star variables (left) with actual observations of their numbers (right). New research shows our galaxy, the Milky Way, is twisted and warped - not flat as previously thought.

An illustration of the true shape of the Milky Way, with an S-like warp in the outer reaches of the disk. The Milky Way is warped and twisted rather than flat like a celestial pancake, according to the most accurate 3D map of the galaxy yet.

New research provides a crucial and the most detailed map for studies of our galaxy’s stellar motions and the origins of the Milky Way’s disk. But a new 3D map reveals a surprise: The Milky Way is being warped and twisted … Ironically, the three-dimensional shape … Our home galaxy, the Milky Way, makes for a pretty space picture, and it looks normal at a distance. The Milky Way is warped and twisted, a collaboration between Australian and Chinese astronomers has established. Astronomers don’t like to think of our Milky Way as being in any way “special.” But – from what’s known today – its twisted shape does give it a specialness, although not a uniqueness.

THE MILKY WAY is actually "warped and twisted" and not a flat disk as scientists previously thought. New research shows our galaxy, the Milky Way, is twisted and warped - not flat as previously thought.

WASHINGTON — Astronomers have created the most precise map to date of the Milky Way by tracking thousands of big pulsating stars spread throughout the galaxy, demonstrating that its disk of myriad stars is not flat but dramatically warped and twisted in shape.

The Milky Way Is Totally Twisted. Shares. Nearby galaxy set to collide with Milky Way, say scientists. Milky Way is not flat but warped and twisted, shows a detailed three-dimensional map of galaxy.
