Have you heard about the bulge scientist say is evidence that no other major astronomical events happened here since the Milky Way was formed?

The better telescopes are obviously leading scientist to discover things they never new.
“The bulge is a key signature of formation of the Milky Way,” Melissa Ness, a post doctoral researcher from the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Germany notes. “If we understand the bulge we will understand the key processes that have formed and shaped our galaxy.”

No, I hadn't.
That's interesting. I thought I'd read somewhere previously that there were those that thought the Milky Way had merged with some other dwarf galaxy billions of years ago.
I don't remember for sure.
At any rate, the X shape won't be there forever because we're on a collision course with the Andromeda Galaxy.
Which reminds me, "The Andromeda Strain" was a pretty good movie.
It's not big budget bang bang shoot'em up sci-fi.
It was about a deadly infectious alien bug, virus I think.
More Science Fiction than Science Fantasy.

I saw that pilot too. I agree. It wasn't very good.
I doubt I'd make a habit of watching it, even if it were on free broadcast.
They may lose money on that one.

In the old days science fiction was based on extrapolating scientific facts and possibilities of what could happen or be created. Some of it has become our reality.
Most of the crap these days is based on some lousy writers wild delusions and fantasies.
I miss Asimov, I miss Star Treck, Stargate and all the good shows.
I watched the first episode of the new Star Treck on CBS. The acting was horrible, the plot was dumb and I would not pay a dime for such crap.
