Hey Everyone,

Dr. Heidi Newberg (the head of the MilkyWay@home project) recently made a video explaining our group's recent work. Did you know that our Milky Way Galaxy has shells? These were formed from a head-on collision between the Milky Way and another galaxy roughly 3 billion years ago! Hear about it in a short YouTube video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC3NeNbO_qg&t=5s

While this result didn't benefit directly from the workunits that our volunteers crunch, it is still work that utilizes the MilkyWay@home software to perform new, interesting science about our Galaxy!

Best,
Tom

Thanks Keith, I forgot that you need to add the tags to URLs on this website. I've fixed that in the original post.
