Galactic Core
A view towards the dense core of the Milky Way galaxy
Galactic Core
This picture shows a view, looking towards the galactic core, seen from the vantage point of a close-in Earth-like planet. This is not a safe environment for such a planet. Jets of highly energetic particles spew from the galactic core. In addition, stars are so close to one another that when one ends its life in a supernova, the radiation from such an event could easily contaminate any planets in neighbouring star systems.
