The Helical Model of our Galaxy is a Vortex

The Milky Way

– The Milky Way itself travels through space at appr. 600 km/s

– The image used for texturing the Milky Way is NOT a picture of the Milky Way. There are no pictures of the outside of the Milky Way.

– There could either be a black hole or a central sun in the center of the Milky Way. I went with the texture image and made it shine.

– A complete revolution around the galaxy takes 226 million years

– Do not confuse the Galactic Plane with the Galactic Equator: the Sun never “crosses” the Galactic Equator because the Sun is always on the Galactic Equator, by definition.

Precession cycle

– One precession cycle takes 25,920 years

– Since one revolution takes 226 mln years, this would mean that there are appr. 8692 precessional cycles in one revolution. In this animation there are only 60.

Scale & distance

– the Sun is 109 times bigger than the Earth. If this animation was to scale, the planets would be invisible.

– Our Solar System should be a gazillion times smaller compared to the Milky Way. If this animation was to scale, you could not see the Solar System, the Sun or any of the planets.

– The software used to create this animation is unable to work with extreme sizes and distances.

Sound & music

– The sound track is called “Enter The Stream” and I created it specifically for this animation.

You can listen to it on my website: http://www.djsadhu.com/audio-video/dj…
