The stars in the sky are assembling into mountain-like formations and scientists are studying why. Mountain ridges and streams are carved out by years of seismic plate activities, but the galactic version remains a mystery.
European Space Agency Gaia has been researching on the phenomenon since 2018, examining galactic features with greater dimensionality. Some experts believe that the formation may be a result of the Milky Ways’ spiral shape.
Other researchers have included the possibility of combining internal and external processes that take shape in mountain-like formations that jut out in space. Studies continue as experts apply advanced technological simulation toward recreating and understanding the phenomenon.
